Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Flapping sound constantly coming from engine that requires complete replacement of the intake manifold to repair. Transmission is slipping, shifting hard and vibrating heavily under acceleration. Tail light went out and turn signal switch needed to be replaced. Window regulators have gone out and needed to be replaced in passenger, behind driver's door and rear cargo areas.

2003 Land Rover Freelander would not accelerate and lost power. Vehicle wouldn't start. Upon inspection mechanic determined the bolt that holds the upper cam started to back out. The engine blew at 56869 miles. The dealer recommended that the consumer replace the entire engine. The vehicle was out of warranty therefore the consumer was going to be responsible for the repairs.
