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.

2008 Jaguar XJ Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 052011

XJ 8-cyl

  • 58 miles


As I was going down a slopping street at approximately 30-35 mph, I stepped on the brakes to slow decline but car surged forward, immediately gaining speed up to 58 mph. When I leveled out at the bottom of the hill I was able to pull over to side of road by tapping on the brakes until I came to a complete stop. Second incident happened two days later. While stopped at a stop sign waiting to turn left, car accelerated forward going from 0 to approximately 30 mph barely missing car coming at me from the left. Was in middle of the road before I knew it. Stopped car as before, light repeated taps on brakes. Car is at Jaguar dealership for inspection.
