Bursted Oil Lines: report it

I know many of you have had their oil line burst. I was reading an article earlier today (how recalls work http://autos.aol.com/article/general...04151509990001) and figured that if no one notifies the NHTSA, then nothing will ever be done about it (ok, D90 are prone, but I read that disco I are also prone to a similar failure). There are a very small number of D on the road, so LR does not care for sure.

So I placed a complain (takes about 5-10 minutes): http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/

Not sure where this will go (probably no where) but I figured I'd do my part if this can save a few D90/D110 (maybe lives?) or get us a better OEM solution (than us having to come up with workarounds).

Filed one about a year back, heard nothing back. But I also suggest it as well, power in numbers.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.
