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.

Vehicle keep warning that coolant fluid was low every three weeks. We kept refilling the container with coolant fluid every 3 weeks which is not normal. Assume there was a leak. Took vehicle to dealer they found hose leaking. Dealer replaced bleed hose reservoir to engine. Leaking at engine. Shouldn't have coolant problems so soon with new vehicle.

The battery light came on when I started the vehicle. It occurred every morning and after leaving work. Took vehicle to dealer and they found out it wasn't the battery. There was an internal fault in alternator. Dealer replaced alternator. Old part is not available. The dealer took the old part.

This vehicle has less than 5000 miles and has been back to the local Land Rover dealer now 3 times for what can best be described as a complete lack of engine power, almost as if it is being starved of fuel, always more than 1/4 tank when this has occurred. The first two trips to the dealer for this problem were for a "software update" which appeared to correct the problem, until it resurfaces a few weeks or a month later. On the most resent trip to the dealer we were informed that there was some problem with the receiver in the dashboard for the electronic key and that this was now the source of the problem.
