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.

2003 Jaguar S-Type Owner Comments

problem #1

May 102006

S-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,000 miles


(1) events leading up to the failure: None. The car has been routinely serviced. (2) failure and its consequences: The car, twice, while attempting to accelerate, would slow down and seems to be weighed down. The car will not accelerate. The ABS brakes go off, and the emergency brake lights go off. Also, error report appears stating that there is a brake failure. It puts me at risk for accidents because on both occasion I was driving the car. (3) what was done to correct the failure: I took the car into a Jaguar dealer, but Jaguar can not recreate the error, so they are unwilling to replace the braking system.
