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.

As I started up from a stop at a light I felt a clunking in the front end. I started to increase speed and attempted to make a sudden turn to avoid an obstacle in the road. The front end froze up.

2005 Range rover has a leak in the front differential. Although the front differential should last for the life of the vehicle, the mechanic indicated that this would lead to premature mechanical failure of the unit and potential life safety issue if it fails while driving.
