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.

While driving my 2009 Land Rover LR2 on the highway, my tire blew out. Upon investigation, the tire pressure monitoring system - that came with the car, installed by Land Rover - had corroded and caused the tire to collapse. This was very dangerous as my tire went from full to empty at a high rate of speed. I replaced the tire and TPMS. A few months later, the same thing happened while again driving at a high speed on the highway. I lost control of the vehicle and fortunately was able to pull over without incident. Upon investigation, all three remaining Land Rover TPMS had corroded and while one had collapsed, the other two were vulnerable. We were very fortunate that no one was injured. This is a very serious, dangerous issue. Land Rover should be taking responsibility, protecting its' drivers and passengers, and issuing a recall.

TPMS sensor / valve stem made of aluminum type metal. Cracked in half and fell out due to corrosion. Resulted in immediate flat tire which needed to be replaced due to ride on damage. Both wife and kids stranded in car until I could change to spare. Both Land Rover and dealer in Edison deny knowing anything about this failure and insist it is the first of it's kind. I find that hard to believe. They should pay for a new tire and 4 new sensors to be installed. This is dangerous and needs to be addressed.

I began hearing a loud humming noise on a 2009 Land Rover LR2 that was coming from the back of the vehicle while driving. The pitch is low at lower speeds and the pitch gets higher as the speed increases. I took the vehicle into the dealership to find that the rear differential pinion bearing/gear was worn and flopping. The suggested repairs were at least a rear differential rebuild but may need an entire unit if damaged beyond rebuilding. A rebuild was estimated to cost $1600 and a total unit replacement was quoted at $2600. The dealership indicated the vehicle was unsafe to drive and that the driveshaft may break off at anytime. My research with this vehicle indicates this is a common problem that will eventually happen in all vehicles between 2008 and 2012. There is even a service bulletin circulating through Land Rover dealerships to notify service departments of the problem and the parts required to perform the repair. I'm concerned that a vehicle with so few miles could have a common catastrophic failure across many model years. This is clearly a safety issue that could endanger other drivers on the road and the occupant of this vehicle. Land Rover is clearly aware of the problem with the circulation of the service bulletin but not recalling and repairing. I'm disappointed with the ethical decisions this company is making.
