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

problem #1

X-Type 6-cyl

I will start by saying that I love my Jaguar. It is the best car I have ever had, with one exception. This is now the fifth incident of cracking rims (size 7.5X180 ET52.5) on my 2005 Jaguar X-type (equipped with the sport premium package). I went out to put the garbage out on Sunday, 20may12, when I noticed the front driver's tire was low. I checked the pressure, and the guage showed 0. that night I put in 40 psi of air. The following day I checked it again, and the guage showed 20 psi. It is important to state the vehicle had not been used since 19may12 to that point. I jacked up the car, and pulled the wheel off the car. After spraying with soapy water on the inside rim by the sidewall, I found it was bubbling. I put the spare on the car. Later I switched the spare so it could be on the driver's rear (so it would not be on a wheel thet steers). On a whim, I checked the wheel that was on the driver's rear side and found it was cracked as well. I sprayed soapy water and found it was not bubbling. I called the local Jaguar dealer, who stated they have not had issues with their rims, and no recall has been issued for them. I find the cracking rims to be a huge safety issue. My wife and I have spent approximately $600 on wheel repairs. Every factory original wheel on the car has been cracked; some more than once. We have also spent a lot of money on new tires because the rims were cracked and destroyed some of the tires' sidewalls. The most recent cracks were docummented via photos from my iphone. I have heard of other people having issued with their Jaguar rims, yet I have not seen a recall on this item. It really should be. This is the car we take our four-year-old to daycare. We also use the car for family outtings and shopping.
