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.

2006 Jaguar X-Type Owner Comments

With my brakes applied and slowing to a stop at the bottom of an interstate exit ramp, my car seemed to jerk and then suddenly accelerated as if it was trying to go into passing gear. I immediately pressed the brakes as hard as possible and shifted into neutral so I could stop and avoid hitting the car in front of me. While in neutral, the engine kept revving and the tachometer was in the red. I turned the engine off to keep from damaging it and put the car in park. After the car in front of me had gone, I started my car to see if the engine would run properly. It seemed to be okay, so I carefully drove to my home which was about three more miles. Several weeks prior, I had a similar incident when I was parking at the grocery store, but I was in the process of turning off the engine. When I started the car to leave the grocery store, everything seemed to be okay and I didn't think any more of it. I found several other people on line that have experienced the same problem but none of them could prove it to their dealer and nothing was done about it. I guess it will take someone getting killed before anything gets done about this sudden acceleration problem with the 2006 Jaguar X-type. This incident has upset me and I am afraid to drive this car, but I don't have another vehicle to drive.
