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.

2004 Land Rover Freelander Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 292009


  • 23,318 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Land Rover Freelander. The contact noticed fuel leaking from the fuel tank. In the presence of an ignition source, the vehicle could have caught fire. The vehicle was towed to a local repair shop and the mechanic stated that the fuel line disengaged from the fuel pump. The fuel line was reconnected. In addition, the traction control would sporadically engage. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was informed that there was a faulty connection to the throttle body. Also, he experiences difficulty when attempting to remove the key from the ignition. The SRS warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. A technician stated that the SRS module needed to be replaced. Lastly, the heater cooler was replaced due to a persistent burning odor emanating from the vehicle. The manufacturer would not assume any responsibility because the vehicle exceeded its warranty. The failure and current mileages were 23,318.

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
June 31 driving 30 miles, the vehicle made sounds as though gears were shifting, & check engine lights, tc light, & track control lights came on, & vehicle lost major power, resulting to a drag in transmission allowing to drive about 2-5 miles. Jul 1 vehicle taken to carmax service (cm), of which both lights had gone off. I was advised that the vehicle was still under manufacturer?S warranty, & cm would have it towed asap. July 5 cm sr advised me that they determined no problems, & the issue I experienced was most likely caused by a loose gas cap. July 19 upon my travel, I experienced no engine trouble, but my back passenger window wouldn't roll up. July 23 vehicle taken to cm; they sent the vehicle to lr to have the back window motor replaced. I didn't bother with advising of the every so often engine problems, because I assumed it was the gas cap. July 25 I refused to take possession due to a very loud clicking sound coming from the engine. It was sent back to lr. On July 26, cm sr advise me that lr says the clicking sound is one of the characteristics in a lr; however the clicking is a little louder than usual, & they would order a few parts to quiet the clicking sound down. Early Aug while driving down peachtree St in atlanta, ga with ample traffic, in rain, thunder, & lightening, 40 miles, vehicle engine gave out again, with all lights coming on, & no power. October 20 driving I75-S, it happened again. It lost power while driving 60+ miles, as the lane curved. Turning into a service station, it lost power again. Oct 22 vehicle is currently at the lr, while incurring a rental car cost, I am uncertain as to what the temporary fix will be. I want out! I will be contacting cm to inquire about a buy back, of which the lr service advisor informed me of.
