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.

2003 Jaguar X-Type Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 102004

X-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles


Movement is difficult to predict. At 15 mph significant upshifting. Problem occurs in coasting at 20 mph down to 10 mph. As you decelerate car lurches into fisrt gear. Making brake distance impossible to predict. Causing accidents at traffic stopping points. Also significant lurching at 15mph, 40mph and then after 70mph. Car is an automatic and drives like a manual, is the primary concern and stopping distance is unpredictable. (transmission issue after three services in the first year) service secretary/manager argues that automobile is fine without test driving. Mechanic joined in test drive and quickly noted that a problem exists yet fix was only temporary.
