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

The passenger side air bag does not activate for a passenger with an approx. Weight of 100 to 135 pounds. We have brought the vehicle into Jaguar and showed the service personnel that I, at 120 pounds, while sitting in the seat, the air bag is not activated. I was told that I need to extend my legs to activate it. I have brought the car to Jaguar on three different occasions, contacted Jaguar corporate and was told that there is no defect. I explained my concern for legal ramifications should the air bag not deploy in the event of an accident and was again and again told there was nothing the dealership or corporate would do.
