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.

2005 Jaguar X-Type Owner Comments

On several occasions my car has suddenly and unexpectedly accelerated - a very scary experience. The dealer told me they had had other reports, and that it was able to be fixed - however it has not been fixed. The most recent incident (below) happened when I was going uphill and had eased off on the accelerator because traffic in front of me was slowing down. Instead, the car responded as though I had put my foot to the floor.
