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.

2nd complaint! see NHTSA id number: 10471434. Ref service bulletin no.: TB-0081, engine vent hose coolant leak.coolant leak caused the failure of the alternator again, this time leaving my child stranded on the side of the road! gulf coast Land Rover repaired the leak and alternator in 2012 at a cost of $1122. But, did not fix the problem so here I go again! I will have to pay to tow the vehicle in for repair and Land Rover will charge me a bloody fortune to replace the defective vent hose (and alternator) that damaged the alternator with another hose that will eventually fail!
