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 2006 Jaguar. The contact stated that the vehicle was exhibiting an unusually strong odor of gasoline coming from the rear of the vehicle. When opening the rear trunk, the odor became overbearing. The vehicle was taken to the dealer twice yet the dealer was unable to duplicate a failure within the fuel system. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 42,000 and the current mileage was 54,314.

I am investigating a fatal collision involving a vehicle fire of a 2006 Jaguar S type 4dr sedan. The fuel filter is located inside the left front fender well and is not protected by any frame component. The fuel shut off switch is located directly behind the left front wheel well. The victim vehicle was struck in an offset head on manner on the driver's (left side), directly impacting the area of the fuel filter. The fuel line was torn off of the filter, and it does not appear that the shut off switch actually worked, thereby pumping gasoline onto the front of the car as it slid across the road. The car was quickly engulfed in flames, and the driver who was pinned into the car died as a result of the fire. My case # is [xxx].
