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.

2005 Jaguar S-type R fuel tank recall fuel tank has large evap leak, had to remove fuel tank to find where the leak was during a smoke test. Fuel tank had been replaced during a recall in 2007, now that tank has a large crack on one of the fuel modules on top of tank the not only leaks fuel/vapors but also illuminates "check engine light". Jaguar says they have complied with the recall and is now a replacement at owners expense even though Jaguar issued technical bulletin R176nas5 on Aug. 18, 2014 that re-identifies this issue and assigns a new fuel tank conversion kit to fix the band-aid that was done in 2007. This fault causes state inspection failure thus unable to register vehicle rendering vehicle useless not to mention unsafe to drive with a fuel/vapor leak constantly present. Another recall for the defective tanks used during the initial recall 06V4180000 date 10-31-2006 should be implemented as this conversion kit is quite costly.

I have had my 2005 Jaguar S-type since about 2011. But since then I have noticed that every time I fill the gas tank it leaks, which I always thought it was over fill. But now I realized it was not. I took it to a auto shop who told me it has a gas leak from the gas tank. He mentioned that Jaguar had a recall on the gas tank and that this one may have been done wrong since the fix did not work and it was still leaking. I contacted the dealer who said that the gas tank was replaced by the recall in 2007 but since it was still leaking I would have to contact the manufacture (Jaguar motors) to see if the fix was covered under the recall since it may have not fixed the leak. I was told by the dealer that it may have been not sealed correctly but only Jaguar motors could approve them to reseal or replace the gas tank. I called them and they were very rude (terrence) saying it was done in 2007 and they had nothing to do with it any more. I told terrence the recall didn't work and the car is still dangerous. He said Jaguar replaced the tank and that is all they had to do. I told them that it was not done right because it was still leaking and he said it was my problem not theirs. I am wondering how dangerous is this car and shouldn't Jaguar fix their recalls correctly to meet recall standards? I am also wondering what I can do...

Same issue as campaign 06V418000. Check engine light illuminated and dealer has advised that the fuel tank seals are leaking vapor. Dealer also informed that the cause may be a warped fuel tank and that Jaguar is no longer manufacturing this part.

Fuel smell inside vehicle when tank filled. Engine warning light on. Contacted Jaguar customer service and Jaguar dealer in tampa fl. Both said vehicle had been fixed in April 2007 under Jaguar recall R 176 and NHTSA 06V418000 and, sorry about your luck, was nothing they could do about it ! problem has been continuous since then and is only avoided by filling tank to 3/4 or less.I believe that there are many of this model out there where a fix has been done but the original recall fault reappears after time constituting a safety hazard..
