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.

2003 Jaguar S-Type Owner Comments

problem #1

S-Type V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


When approaching a stop sign and applying my brakes , my 2003 Jag. s-type suddenly accelerated onto incoming trafic. The car was out of control reving at accelerated speed. I had both feet on the no avail. My only options were to head to head toward the curb, hoping to slow it down, as I had decided to crash into some dipsey dumpster to prevent involving other cars and pedestrians. wtih the jolt into the curb the acceleration stopped, yet continued to idle. I have since looked into other drivers having the same issue with their jag and have found that there are several reported incidences involving sudden acceleration. DO NOT BUY A JAG S_TYPE!!!!!!! You will be putting your life and those of others in danger.
