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.

Vehicles fuel tank had just been filled, after approximately ten (10) miles the vehicle began to exhibit a low power situation and then began to stall at idle, such as stopping at a stop sign or stop light. Vehicle was limped approximately two (2) miles to owners residence where it was allowed to sit for approximately forty-five (45) minutes inside a closed garage. Upon returning to the garage a strong odor of fuel was present. Upon examination of the vehicle it was found that a steady drip of fuel was coming from an unknown location on the underside of the rear of the vehicle, and dripping onto the exhaust pipe, suspension components, and then on to the garage floor. After approximately five (5) minutes the dripping began to slow and then stopped. Approximately one (1) quart of gasoline had spilled onto the garage floor leaving a puddle approximately five (5) feet in diameter. The spill was immediately treated with a spill absorbing material (cat litter.) Land Rover North America, roadside assistance was immediately contacted and required the owner to immediately contact the local fire department to come verify that the vehicle was not a threat to the residence and would be safe for flatbed Transport to the nearest authorized dealer. Upon inspection, the dealership notified the owner that the vehicles fuel tank had a faulty internal valve and the fuel tank would need to be replaced. Dealer was informed by Land Rover North America that the fuel tank with the revised valve was on backorder and no date was given for the replacement part to arrive. Dealership service department informed the owner that they were attempting to find a replacement tank by contacting other dealers and personal contacts.
