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.

problem #1

Nov 042006

(reported on)

Freelander 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles

Two months after bying the car (new) problems with the breaks. grinding sound. rotors "damage" by the same break pads. this is because land rover used cheap japanese rotors. also i was told by a head Land Rover mechanic that the reason of so many electrical problems was due to insuficient inspection after assembly line. I made an effort to stop anyone driving one to ask if they were satisfied. the general answer was obviously not. Look soon for www. i am so, so disapointed that i will make an effort to save someone a headage.
