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.

2010 Jaguar XF Owner Comments

problem #6

  • 50,000 miles


Car suddenly stop accelerating in the middle of the freeway. I had to pull to the side wich was hard since power steering and everything was not working since engine seem to shut off. Ended up figuring out that it had ran out of fuel but gas gauge showed around 1/4 left and no fuel low warning ever showed.

Was driving down interstate and light came on saying coolant low, air conditioner was still blowing cold, but I turned off air, maybe 3 minutes later, loss acceleration power, black smoke billowing out of pipes and under hood and light came on saying low performance turn engine off. Immediately pulled car on side of highway. No warning car was running hot. Car was disabled would not start later and computer reading still registered cool. Gas was smelling all though the car and proceeded to leak from under car after towed away. At the dealership, the car had gas leaking under it on the ground when I went to retrieve items out of car. Dealership said it would cost 36,000. Plus to fix. Car is still sitting at dealership with no solution. I felt we were fortunate to get out of car alive because I felt it could have exploded. Dealership says it was water pump, but engine was never torn down to determine that.

Pulling out of a parking lot into oncoming traffic, car was driving fine then all of a sudden it snapped into restricted performance mode, slowed my car down to 15mph on a busy street, and almost got hit by other cars due to my sudden decline in speed. Took the car back to the dealership for assessment and their recommendation is to replace the engine for $32,000. I bought the car for $26,000 in January 2014 from galpin Honda in mission hills and I currently owe $24,000 on it. I just don't see how this could be right.

While driving the engine light came on and white smoke came out from under the hood of the vehicle. The smell of engine coolant was inside the vehicle. The vehicle was brought to the dealership where they diagnosed a water pump failure. From information we gathered, this is a common issue for this vehicle which the manufacturer is aware and has done may replacements with a redesigned part. The poor design and quality of this part causes catastrophic engine failure. While Jaguar North America has released several technical service bulletins of this issue, they have failed to address the issue on all affected vehicles.
