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.

Car only had 36,000 miles @ beginning of problems. Car began jerking hard to the left. I almost hit an 18-wheeler head-on. I just heard that a recall exists on the suspension, ball joints, etc.this is weird, since I have had the car back to the shop @ least 5 times, and none of this was fixed. People could have been killed. I have filed a consumer complaint. Hopefully, Jaguar will correct this problem, before someone is hurt. My car is undriveable at this time.

Very loud "clunk" noise is heard in the wheels when driving, and I am told it's the ball joint/suspension that's the culprit. Have yet to have this problem fixed but I understand it's a very dangerous problem that could cause accident if this portion breaks.
