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.

We noticed the AWD transfer case seal leaked while on holidays in Fla. We had the seal replaced at the local Jag dealer for $150 - Great! Except that one week after getting back home ( Toronto ), the transfer case bearings went. The reason being is that the transfer case is a SEALED unit at the factory and the lubricant level cannot be checked ( or added to ). It appears as if the seal leaked all the way down and while a new seal was installed, we'd lost most of the lubricant on the way to Florida. You'd think that in this day and age, the Jaguar engineers would know how to design a f%&#*g seal.

The transfer case had to be replaced at a cost of $7500 Cad - ( aprox. $6500 US )
