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

X-Type 6-cyl

The 2003 and perhaps 2002 Jaguar X class have a "low outside temperature" screen that becomes visible when the car's thermometer reads 38 degrees outside; this normally occurs when driving subsequent to the car being garaged; to shut off this screen the driver must look to the left of the steering wheel and then down to find and press a reset button for 5 seconds; this presents an unsafe situation as the drivers eye contact is no longer on the road; moreover, the owner's manual claims the screen is suppose to shut off automatically after 4 seconds (page 4-12); the company and dealer I bought an X class from have been notified and refuse to respond to the issue. Jaguar told me the owners manual can be wrong and the dealer responded that it is a "black ice" warning. (I do not know what blace ice is.)
