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.

2002 Jaguar X-Type Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 042006

X-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles


At only 46,000 miles, vehicle suffered catastrophic transmission failure, resulting in estimates ranging from $8000 (Jaguar rebuilt) to $3000 (local rebuild) for repairs. Car was, according to dealer, out of warranty by registration date, leaving me with the entire rebuild bill. Jaguar knows about the problem of X-type transmissions failing and refuses to address the situation. Emails and letters sent to Jaguar hq have all gone unanswered. Since I received the vehicle, the transmission has been replaced, headlight washer covers have both blown off during use, sunroof has failed, both front seats rock (Jaguar has a tsb out on this but fails to recall), mysterious dsc failures and many fit and finish issues (dash pad warping, paint issues, etc.).
