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.

2008 Jaguar S-Type Owner Comments

problem #2

Bought a new Jaguar S-type in 2001. On 8/9/04 with 10723 miles the transmission failed and was replacement. On 12/29/06 took car in because of transmission issues (27302 miles). I was told the car was operating within specs. On 7/7/07 took car in again with complaint regarding transmission (32625 miles) and again was told the cars transmission was operating within specs. On April 17, 2009 while driving, the transmission failed, and car went into limp mode. Car was towed. The Jaguar repair shop stated the transmission failed and needed to be replaced (at ~45,000 miles, note that this is only 35,000 miles after first replacement).

Recently (10/16/08) purchased a 2001 S-type 4.0 with 74316 mi. 2nd day I had it transmission started slipping. Within 1 week had to be rebuilt. All coils replaced and #4 & #5 keep going bad. Dealership stated coils were broken. Sent home with broken coils. Window regulators needed to be replaced. Check engine light on dealership stated no problem. Poor service, poor quality.
