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.

2003 Land Rover Freelander Owner Comments

Freelander 4WD 6-cyl

My daughter owns a 2003 Land Rover Freelander hse. It didn't start one morning and she noticed fluid on the ground. The fluid was gasoline. I had her crank the engine for a second while I had the hood open and there was gasoline squirting out of the fuel line just to the right of the engine block. I had a mechanic look at it and he was able to put the line back together and it clicked twice but since this is a serious safety issue, I was wondering if there have been other instances of the fuel line coming apart. Clearly if this happened while the engine was hot and she was driving, this could have been disastrous.
