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.

While driving on I-75 the vehicle would not accelerate and shift gears. It started stalling and would do the same thing after the engine was turned off and on again. We drove 50-55 mph on a highway with 18 wheelers careening around us. Took the vehicle to the dealership, we were told that it needed a new transmission. No explanation was given as to why with a vehicle barely 5 years old and only had 42,000 miles accrued. We took it to a private transmission shop and they found the defect. There was a crack on the reverse piston which Land Rover was apparently aware of because an updated piston was manufactured. All we would like was a refund for the repairs done but we were told no because we didn't go to the dealership. If it weren't for the private shop, we wouldn't have known about the defect in the first place. I still have the piston and the crack is clearly visible.
