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.

2005 Jaguar S-Type Owner Comments

I was traveling in my car at approximately 30 mph. I slowed for a traffic light. As I was coming to a stop (right foot on the brake), the engine began to rev, the rear wheels started to turn propelling me forward. I placed both feet on the brake, pushed the brake to the floor, however the RPM gauge was moving to maximum and the car continued to propel me forward. The rear end started sliding to the left. I slammed the car into park and the tires stopped moving, the rpms dropped, and the electrical system shorted resulting in taking the radio offline and to station 600 am. I was able to avoid the stopped vehicle in front of me by 2 inches. This is the second time this has happened. The vehicle was evaluated approx 1 month ago for the same type of failure, but they were unable to reproduce the event. Of note, on December 13, 2004, the vehicle went into reverse and would not come out of reverse. The vehicle was evaluated by the dealership, the gear shift was replaced, the trans cable bolt had fallen out, it was replaced, and the cable was adjusted.

I owe a Jaguar S-type it has several mechanical problem. I noticed there is no data no where posted regarding this vehicle. (NHTSA, iihs, or dot). No data anywhere on the Jaguar S-type. I think that should throw up some red flag as to why are they hiding something? (1) on several occasions my windshield wiper fail to operate. The vehicle was in for service, the mechanics stated that there was a fuse blown, however when the fuse was replaced the windshield wipers continued to malfunction. They work less than 50 % of the time needed. (2) I live in Michigan, alot of snow, ice & rain, on more than one occasion I would be drive in the snow or rain, and the wipers would just stop operating for no apparent reason. Leaving me totally visually impaired. I would have to turn on my flashers, & pull off the road, then wait until the rain stops or leave the car and call for a ride home. I have loss time at work because of this issue, also missed several appointments because of this continue problem. (3) once the fuse was replaced for the wipers, however the last three times this has happen to me. When checked by a mechanics, no problem was found with the wiper or electrical system, however the wipers seem to have a shortage of some kind.

Multiple power window regulator failures on year 2000 Jaguar S-type 3.0; most recent incident occurred this October. Wrote to Jaguar of America, which refused to accept this is due to a design flaw. Internet chat rooms full of similar stories of P/w regulator failure.
