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

  • 85,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Jaguar X-type. The contact stated that while driving at 55 mph there was a popping sound in the steering wheel and the steering veered to the right with no control. The contact merged to the side of the road. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and a compliant was filed. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnostic testing and stated the steering column had detached from the vehicle. As a result, the steering column, power steering rack and electronic controls needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 85,000.

I purchased a 2004 Jaguar X-type select edition in April 2007 with 34,000 miles. At 37,000 miles the left lower control arm was replaced under warranty (May 07) at 43,000 miles the left lower control arm was replaced again under warranty (March 08). Now, at 53,569 miles it has to be replaced again and I am waiting for the part to come in, it will still be covered by the select edition warranty.
