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.

When I bought the car a week later it blew hot air, I was told it only needed freon. I found out later that there was a leak and it is $1200. A week after that the car would not start the dealer picked the car up and said that the battery was dead because I left the radio on, it has happened over 30 times, not true there is something wrong. I have replaced tires at least six times. Tires completely separate. I was driving and car slowed down on freeway and I was almost hit, I pulled over and it stopped and did it again and I had to push the traction control button, almost cost me my life! it now happens when I hit a bump. When I turn the car makes a extremely loud noise, (embarrassing) I was told it is a ball joint and can catch on fire. Engine light has always been on and is now blinking and the car shakes and hesitates. I had to pay to get the brakes fixed 2 months after purchasing. Radio turns on for no reason and runs battery down. I was told I have two leaks in my shocks and it is $1800 each. When I back up and turn the steering wheel vibrates. I can't even use the cigarette lighter to charge my cell because it does not work and has been replaced twice. The remote just stop working and I was charged $100 to reconfigure. The brakes act funny, can't even explain it. This car is unreal, a complete piece of junk. I can't even remember half the stuff I have endured and the money I have spent.

S-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,300 miles
: the contact stated that while driving on interstate I-45, the front left tire on the Jaguar S-type deflated, forcing the contact to pull off the road. The vehicle was taken to the tire dealer to replace all 4 tires. When the dealer attempted to remove the lug nut from the front right tire, the lug nut separated from the self centering nipple making it impossible to remove the tire. The other 3 old tires were put back on the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop. As the mechanic attempted to remove another tire, two lug nuts separated in the same wheel. To remove the nipple, the mechanic had to create a groove into the back of the nipple. The dealer advised the contact that the maximum torque for the lug nuts should be 72 foot pounds and all of them were over-tightened by the original dealer. The mechanic was able to fix the problem, and installed and lubricated new lug nuts. The contact returned to the tire dealer and 4 new tires installed on the vehicle.
