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.

LR3

I have a 2005 LR3 landrover that is perpetually out of alignment because of the structural design of the car. This defect causes my tires to wear excessively fast and have caused me to have completely bald tires on the inner halves of all four tires. Once the dealership replaced the tires because they were in such bad shape. This December another set of tires was badly worn and the dealership realigned the car making it more unsafe to drive. This problem can visually be seen by looking at the car. The car wears through tires approximately every 15,000 miles. My dealership acknowledges the problem, but will not fix the car. There is great potential for injury due to the car never staying in alignment and the excessive wear of the tires.

LR3 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Suspension drops and raises while driving. Lights and alarms on dash. Unable to drive car safely. Took car to dealership and "front height sensors" replaced. Car at dealership for 8 days. Picked up car and drove for 2 weeks and noticed difficulty driving car, and a "tin can sound" under car. Looked under car and found extreme inside wear on tires - especially rear tires where steel tread exposed. Took car to a tire repair/replacement establishment and informed that "cambrs" were "out" and car very unsafe to drive. Tires replaced with new tires. Dealership did not inform customer of "extreme" inside wear on rear tires. This defect should have been repaired while the car was at the dealership for 8 days. Family drove on steep mountain roads while these tires were worn and outcome could have been deadly.
