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

Dec 122006

X-Type 6-cyl

  • 57,462 miles


The Jaguar dealer replaced the transmission and related parts in the car as it was un-drivable. After re-assembly, the car would make clunking sounds when turning tight turns and over bumps and dips. This became more noticeable over time, until the dealer wanted to replaced most of the suspension. It turns out that the transmission sub-frame is bolted through the floor pan to spot-welded nuts. The technician broke these nuts loose during re-installing the frame member (perhaps by over-torquing). The drivetrain would then shift during the tight turns and over bumps making a loud clunking in the unibody.
