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.

My entire dashboard is automatically dismantling on it's own. There are bubbles everywhere and it's separating from the console. I am afraid that it will the operation of the airbag restraint system if ever in an accident. I don't use anything on my dashboard to clean it except for a duster. I am afraid from it bubbling all of a sudden it may eventually fly off or get worse and obstruct my driving view. I took the vehicle to Jaguar and they do not want to fix the dashboard. Instead, they are telling me I can have them fix it for a fee of $3800+. I explained to them it should be coming apart in the first place for it to need fixing. I am so disgusted and aggravated. The entire car needs to be recalled because it is just a piece of junk. It has great engine performance, but massive glitches including electrical.

The dashboard is bubbled up and separated causing decreased visibility due to glare from glue and possible obstruction of airbag deployment due to dashboard warping. After being inspected by dealer, only option given was to replace the dashboard which is not covered by warranty. Also wood grain interior trim splinters on dashboard below navigation screen, in door insert panels and in center consoles causing cuts and splinters. This also was not covered by warranty.

Also horn pad works intermittently causing a dangerous situation. After bringing to dealer it was diagnosed user error that I was not hitting the pad hard enough. After dealer hit pad so hard it bent the emblem on horn, dealer then refused liability for parts broken while in shop.

I have enjoyed this vehicle overall except for three issues limited to quality. The nav unit failed shutting down the entire fiber optic network and the dash pad delaminated. The front lca busing are also problematic.

2009 Jaguar Xf - when brake pedal is depressed, it goes past the accelerator pedal causing the foot to hit the accelerator and the brake at the same time. More pressure on the brake causes more pressure on the accelerator. Has happened three times at very low speeds during parking. Jaguar says they are aware of the problem but there's not a fix. "be careful" they say.
