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

Started hearing rubbing sound while driving and gets louder when picking up speed, also thumping sound when stepping on gas pedal. Took it to auto mechanic and was told I need a new differential assembly for front.

Range Rover 8-cyl

  • 80,000 miles
The front wheels locked up and caused the car to veer dangerously and screech to a halt. This was due to a failed front differential which, upon more online research is a common issue with this model. It was replaced by the dealer at a cost of $3,000.

Range Rover 8-cyl

  • 59,950 miles
Vehicle began making a mid to high pitch whining/grinding sound coming from the rear of the vehicle. The sound is present at most speeds now. Land Rover dealer told me it was the rear differential beginning to fail, and would cost $2200 to replace. They also told me that Land Rover North America is aware of the defective differentials, but essentially could care less.

While driving on gwb, I suddenly felt like the underneath of the car had gotten stuck on something & then the car came to a sudden stop, leading to the car behind me hitting my bumper. My mechanic told me it was my front differential & was not covered in my vehicle's year recall.

problem #1

Range Rover

  • 78,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Land Rover Range rover. While the vehicle was parked on an incline the vehicle began to roll away on its own. The contact was inside the vehicle and placed the parking brake in order to stop the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnostic testing. There was a recall under NHTSA campaign id number: 05V502000 (power train:automatic transmission) that may be related to the failure. The technician stated the VIN was not included in the recall and diagnostic test would have to be performed to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 78,000.

- Brooklyn, NY, USA
