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 2005 Jaguar ST3. While idling at a stop light, with the his foot on the brake and the vehicle in drive, the consumer stated the vehicle spontaneously began accelerating. The contact had to place the vehicle into neutral to prevent it from moving. The risk of a serious crash was increased. He took the vehicle to the dealer, but they could not determine the cause of the failure and provide a remedy. The technician forwarded the case to the other engineers for further assessment. The manufacturer referred the contact to the dealer. The failure and current mileages were 29,500. Updated 3/19/09 updated 03/26/09.
