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 #1

Nov 112005


  • 48,000 miles


I bought the 2004 Jaguar X-type with approx 48,000 miles. The entire time I've owned the car, the front passenger airbag light will turn on and off when an adult weighing less than 135lbs sits in the front seat. You can move and figet, and the "airbag off" life will turn off, only to intermittently turn on. This is a huge safety issue, as a lightweight adult in the front seat may not have airbag protection in a crash. Jaguar said there was nothing wrong with the seat and sensor, and to adjust the seat differently until the "airbag off" life goes off. The point is that there is no guarantee that putting the seat in any particular position will result in a safe airbag deployment for a light weight adult. Upon research, my X-type isn't the only one with this problem. If the airbag doesn't deploy, someone could be killed.
