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.

The passenger side airbag on the dashboard is starting to prematurely split on top of the dashboard surface around the entire outline of the airbag. The crack has progressed in a precious outline of the cutout of the airbag. After contacting Land Rover of America on multiple occasions, they considers this as a "wear and tear" and they state this will not effect the safety of the vehicle. Note: This is a common problem that owners of the 2006-2009 models have been experiencing (per multi Land Rover website forums) that Land Rover has now redesigned the dashboard on the newer models to have the cutout of the airbag already designed into the dashboard so this type of defect will not occur. I'm very concerned with this type of design defect especially if the airbag is needed during a collision whether it will function properly and the fact that Land Rover of America is instructing its customer service representatives to advise consumers that this is a "wear and tear" issue. I would appreciate for the dot NHTSA to review my concerns and conduct an investigation with Land Rover regarding this matter on my 2006 Range rover sport. Thank you

Passenger side dashboard has cracking around the airbag system. I took it to three independent upholstery shops and they all decline to perform any repair due to safety/liability concerns. They say it is fairly common for my year/make/model vehicle. I'm fearful that this presents some issues with airbag deployment, or may simply be a design flaw by landrover.

The front passenger occupancy sensor in my 2006 Range rover intermittently works. When the passenger seat is occupied, 50% of the time the air bag fault light will be illuminated, which means that the passenger airbag, or perhaps all airbags will not deploy in an accident. I was surprised to find out that a few friends with the same car area also having the same issue, and this is not a recall item for Land Rover. In order for this situation to be remedied, I must purchase the $220 sensor and have it installed, which requires removal of the passenger seat and leather covering the seat bottom cushion. This should be a recall, as it has been a recall item for other manufacturers such as Honda.

The contact owns a 2006 Land Rover Range rover hse. The contact stated that the seat belt warning light would not illuminate when the seat belt was not being utilized. In addition, the air bag warning light would also illuminate intermittently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who informed him that the seatbelt would not operate if there was a crash. To repair the air bag failure, the dealer stated they would have to remove the seats and replace the seat sensors. The manufacturer was contacted who offered no assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 62,000.

Passenger seat occupancy sensor failed which disables the airbag(s), requiring replacement. I know there was a recall on the same part several 2006 BMW models, Land Rover was owned by BMW at the same time and the part replaced has BMW branding on it. Likely it is the same part and should have been included in that recall.
