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.

2004 Jaguar X-Type Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 282010


  • 47,000 miles


Driver's seat completely detached from vehicle frame and was loose from seat frame box. 2004 Jaguar X-type. Frame was replaced. Appears that there is a series problem with driver's seats on this model. Jaguar has a hidden warranty on the front seat of some vins in this model due to need to shim tracks. Dealer advises that there is no recall on this VIN for front seat issues. Car had approximately 47000 miles on odometer at time of seat frame failure. Obviously a driver's seat which comes loose from its attachment to the vehicle is a severe danger.

problem #1

Passenger seat belt indicator lights up at random times when my wife is sitting in the passenger seat. (when the light is on, the seat belt will not deploy!) the problem is on going. Jaguar was witness to the failure and has attempted to fix the problem on several occasions. The repair efforts have been unsuccessful and further attempts to have Jaguar correct the problem have resulted in Jaguar claiming that all aspects of the seat are up to design specifications. They refuse further corrective measures. This particular problem does not occur when my wife is in the passenger seat of other vehicles.
