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.

The problem started when taking the state of Georgia mandated emission test. The vehicle was service 3 weeks before the deadline. All phases of the test was completed except for the evaporate part. So that put the vehicle in not-ready status. We had the vehicle check and rechecked until its pass emission testing March,2012. Renewal of our progressive vehicles insurance, I can across the vehicle center section on the website. The Jaguar information was entered and there were 4 recall and 40 tsb. Just before the last emission test the vehicle was scanned for codes their were two issues in which reoccured every since 2006. NHTSA #10017717, batch #30309 and 623791, batch #30701. I called Jaguar corporate office (201) 818-8500 to see what could be done to resolved these problems..the part of phone call I did not liked, the customer care person stated " the government put information out on vehicle all the time, its don't means anything. Also I learn Georgia suppose to have all recalls and tbs in there emission testing data base. This is a short version of the frustration we have with Jaguar, when the informations is there for them. # 623791 can happen on the expressway with the loss of power. Please help with a solution.

I was driving from atlanta to cleveland averaging 75 mph somewhere in Tennessee when I turned on the cruise control and without warning the vehicle just shut down. I was able to coast to the shoulder and restart the vehicle and completed the trip to cleveland without using the cruise fearing the vehicle would leave me stranded. Luckily (or not) this event happened at 2:00am and the nearest vehicle was a semi truck about half a mile behind me.
