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.

The contact owns a 2004 Jaguar S-type. The contact stated that there was a massive anti-freeze leak in the vehicle. The dealer discovered that the radiator was cracked. An independent mechanic repaired the radiator and found that most of the components under the hood were not Jaguar parts. The parts were Jeep, Chevrolet, and other brands. Upon further investigation, it was revealed that the vehicle was previously involved in two major crashes. On a separate occasion, the contact found holes in the radiator hoses. In addition, the water pump was cracked and needed to be replaced. Later, while driving less than 35 mph, the brakes failed. A police officer flagged her down and informed her that smoke and sparks were coming from the rear driver's side tire. The independent mechanic stated that the caliper failed. The system would not accept the VIN provided. The failure mileage was 30,000 and current mileage was 54,000.

Parking brake failure, disc not availabe and engine failed. All these indicators came on one after the other and the brakes would not stop the car, nor would the car accelerate. The car leaped forward and then slowed to a stop on its own. Dealer stated they repaired the recall items and could not state why the problem persistsed it happened three times, and the vehiclewas still covered by full factory warranty.
