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.

Check engine light is on. Took truck through inspection and it failed. Took truck to Range rover dealer, paid for diagnostic test ($120.38) and was told there was an air leak. Paid $723.53 drove about 1 block and the light came on again. Turned around and took truck back to dealer. They said they did something to fix the problem. The next day, the check engine light came back on. Have been to the cherry hill, NJ dealer 5 times, spent hours waiting and can't drive my truck because the check engine light is still on and my inspection sticker has expired. Won't be going back to the cherry hill dealer. Took truck to the shop recommended by the NJ inspection department and was told the catalytic converter at right front weld is cracked. I have paper work to show it was still under extended warranty for 11 yrs/120,000 miles. How can this issue be resolved? please respond. Thank you.

When starting the vehicle smoke appeared through the cracks of the dash board. The ignition was turned into the off position and when trying to start it again, it didn't turn, the ignition was locked. Flames then shot through the cracks on the dashboard near the radio. Within seconds the vehicle was engulfed and within 3 minutes it was totaled. Thankfully I got out the car in time.

Bought this vehicle for wife brand new for $80,000. First 38,000 miles best car ever owned. Then the landslide began. First bad vibration front end we pay $1,300 for wheel bearings. The transmission cooler rusted out. Our fault salty roads $1,100 next the radiator goes $1,800 on us. By now 72,000 miles on it. Keep in mind my wife only uses to goto grocery store and pick kids up from school. God forbid we ever took it off road or thru the plains of africa. Now the biggy starts engine surging for no reason, vibration in steering wheel. Yes tires are new and balanced. Then the notorious transmission failsafe. Limpmode. Safety mode. How about sucker mode. Take it to dealer and they say need new transmission. I freak and second mechanic there looks at it and said its the transfer case motor $3,100. Oh yea that would be on us as well. So I say I'll tell you what put it in writing, that for sure this is the problem and if fixed all my transmission problems go away and if they don't its on you guys until its fixed. Yes you know what they said. I mean what happened to honesty and integrity. Love your neighbor as yourself. Stand by your work. Look I knew going into this car it was high maintenance but it does not even have 100,000 miles on it. Never fixed. Somedays it acts up all day other times once or twice it limps very sporadic. Pretty much a weatherby car. Whether or not it will act up or not. Ashamed to sell it and give someone else the problems. Tried telling people about problems and they said they would give me $7,000 carmax would not touch it actually refused to appraises it even though it was the cleanest they have seen. Issue the auction had a lemon flag on all the rangerovers with 70,000 miles or more. Nice!
