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.

I own a 2004 Jaguar X-type with a manual transmission. I was making a turn and downshifting when the cable from the shifter to the transmission came loose at the transmission. I had to be towed to a mechanic and he fixed it in about 10 minutes.

  • Manual transmission

Defective design of manual transmission for Jaguar 2004 X type car. 1) there was no events or symptoms leading up to the failure @ 47,000 miles. I am a professional commercial driver with 30 years experience with manual transmissions to know the symptoms. 2) down shifting at 5 mph, to prepare for a turn, loud grinding sound for 58 seconds as we heard a piece of metal grinding through the transmission including the fly wheel. Then the transmission was totaled. 3) transmission was replaced at my expense, for $ 3245. I saved all of the broken parts for inspection in my pursuit of fairness. Researched manual clutch failures with others owning the same car. Found 30 others who clutches failed before 50,000 miles of their jag X type car. This is not a fluke. There is a serious design failure as a mechanical engineer who designed the engineering (not the cosmetic stuff) of cars. Even thought manual transmissions are rare in the american car industry, that is not appropriate to make defective cars.
