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.

2008 Land Rover LR2 Owner Comments

2008 Land Rover LR2 has a problem with overheating and non acceleration. The consumer stated the vehicle began knocking slightly after starting it. After driving a few feet, it would not accelerate. The reduced engine performance light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and a day later, the dealer informed the consumer that the fuel line was faulty. Four days later, the vehicle stopped accelerating and it felt as though the vehicle was in neutral. The consumer looked down and the dynamic stability control light had illuminated. When the third incident occurred, the consumer pulled over, but the vehicle would not shut off. The reduced engine light illuminated again and then the battery light illuminated. The steering wheel then locked.

First brand new landrover LR2 had failed to operate while driving twice. Brought into dealership--told me transmission failed and gave me another new LR2. This second LR2 has overheated twice (again, while driving). The most recent event occurred while driving in the city and suddenly started to overheat while driving. I immediately dropped it off at the dealership which was nearby and smoke was coming out of the hood. It has been in the shop for going on to four weeks now.
