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.

Range Rover 8-cyl

My vehicle was driving just fine and then the next time I went to drive it wouldn't start, the key would not turn. I called my dad over who is a mechanic and he advised it was maybe the battery.I ended up calling on M roadside assistance to have my car towed to a shop to have it looked and get fixed. The mechanic after a week told me about multiple scenarios it could be. After disconnecting the battery the car was able to start and I drove it to a different mechanic for a second opinion. This mechanic advised me to replace the ignition switch and I did and now after two months the vehicle will still not start! so then I looked online searching for an answer and that when I discovered page after page of people online posting in forums looking for answers to the same issues with there 03 Range rover, with the exact same issues sounds mechanics telling them the same diagnosis! I have come to the conclusion after talking to Range rover directly that after running my VIN the steering column had already been replaced before with the previous owner!. and on the forums people were saying that they did the same replacements of parts and it either worked in some cases or others the problem came back! so I've concluded that Ranger rover should do a formal recall on this part. Because what if this problem happened while driving or while out on the highway you stop for gas and then your car will just not start!
