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.

This vehicle has been driven only about 26,000 miles. I bought it brand new from manhattan Jaguar dealership in bethesda md. And is still under an extended warranty. Over the last 7 years that I have owned this car I have had 3 incidents of sudden acceleration. The first happened about two years ago as I came to a red traffic light. I applied the brake and the vehicle slowed down. But then the engine suddenly made a roaring sound and the vehicle began to accelerate. As I was pushing the brake I also pushed the gear to the "P" and the vehicle stopped about 6 feet beyond the stopping line. The second time I was actually stopped to make a turn and again suddenly the engine made a roaring sound and the vehicle began a sudden acceleration.. my wife was sitting next to me and again I applied the brake and immediately push the gear to "P". both of incidents were reported to the dealer to no avail. The last incident happened on January 13, 2011 as I was stopped 5-6 feet from the car ahead of me in a busy traffic. Again all the sudden it was a roaring sound and the vehicle began the sudden acceleration despite my pushing on the brake. The distance between me and the front car was too short; so before I could stopped the car, I hit the rear end of the vehicle stopped ahead of me. My insurance paid $725 to fix the damages to the rear bumper of that car. I took the car to the dealer again and they kept it for three days claiming that since they could not replicate the acceleration they could not do anything for me. I also drove the car with one of the dealers staff. The purpose I guess was for me to replicate the acceleration as if the previous cases were done on purpose. This car also had a problem with the side mirrors. They would move as I was driving. After some 10 times complaint, finally they said a gadget under the driver's seat was the culprit and finally took care
