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

Design flaw in inner and outer rocker panels lead to rust through of uni-body. By the time owner sees first indication of rust, uni-body is almost completely gone. Components rust from the inside out. It seems that Jaguar has corrected this design flaw on 07 and newer models. In an accident there would be no strength in uni-body, no energy absorption, and car could literally be "cut in half".

2002 Jaguar X-type. Front inner structure around a pillar and connection to rocker panels is rusting badly at a crucial structure point. Started noticing in 2010, with complete issue this year. Replacement panel has drain built in vs. Original with no way to frain moisture from inner rocker.
