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.

2007 Jaguar S-Type Owner Comments

S-Type 8-cyl

I purchased this 2007 Jaguar S-type in Nov 2013. Approximately 1 month ago I started having an issue with the electronic parking brake not releasing itself when the car was shifted out of the "park" position. It takes a good 15-20 minutes of driving the vehicle and applying the brakes several times before the electronic parking brake will disengage itself. It has gotten to the point now that the brake pads have worn to the point of initial grinding noise being heard, which is a clear indicator of excessive wear. I did some research online a couple of nights ago, so as to confirm if there have been any Jaguar S-type "recalls" for this type of problem, and in fact found that there have been many reported instances of them for this exact problem. In fact, the problem can escalate itself if the electronic parking brake were to engage itself on its own while the car is in motion, causing the rear brakes/tires to lock obvious safety issue. The recall numbers are R166 and R167, but in contacting Jaguar corporate customer service, as well as a local Jaguar service dealership, I was informed that while my issue appears to be mirroring these prior recalls, there is not an actual recall currently "open" on the 2007 Jaguar S-type model year vehicle. This to me seems ridiculous. What should it matter what the manufactured year of the vehicle is" if the problem is the same problem as has occurred on prior year models, why wouldn't the existing recall/S simply be expanded to include the additional model year/S, 2007 in this case" any assistance/direction in regards to having this matter addressed that could possibly be sent my way would be greatly appreciated.
