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 #1

Feb 082006

X-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


Experienced two major failures. The initial failure involved the shearing off of one of the left suspension components. Resulted in steering failure. Fortunately, I was only going 20 mph and was able to stop before further damage incurred. $4500 in repairs to front end/suspension--covered by local dealer/Jaguar. The second failure involved transmission failure at speeds of 40 - 70 mph. Happily, when taken to the dealership, it left them stranded on the street. This resulted in the recommendation of a new transmission at $6500 on a component not due to require service for another 30,000 miles. (car had 69,000 miles.)
