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

Aug 182010


  • 174,000 miles


Noted a metal fatigue vertical separation in the right rear trailing arm of the rear suspension approximately 4 in long. No damage to the link is noted and appears to be a stress fracture. Complete fracture of the link could occur at speed if a road hazard, I.e. pothole or rough road surface is encountered causing the rear wheel to possibly separate from the vehicle. Manufacturer was notified directly but was told to take it to a dealer photos are available and car can be made available for inspection.
