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.

The contact owned a 2011 Jaguar Xj. While driving on a wet road at 55 mph, the contact lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle fishtailed down the road into the guardrail cable. The front end of the vehicle was destroyed. The air bags did not deploy. The contact sustained head and rib injuries, which required medical attention. A police report was not filed. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. The issue recurred on numerous occasions. In addition, the emergency brake malfunctioned.

2011 xj is exhibiting problems similar to those contained in NHTSA campaign id number: 10V332000 for the xk and xf. Specifically, vehicle engine will stutter as if about to stall, which is most noticeable within the first 30 minutes after start up, but persists in varying degrees at all times, especially when idling. Problem is progressively worsening. Problem reported to dealer who had indicated a software update in the future should resolve the issue, but no indication given on when that will happen. Problem sounds similar to NHTSA campaign id number: 10V332000, which notes a crash could occur. Accordingly, this should be investigated to confirm if the 2011 xj should be included in this recall.

I leased a brand new, 2011 Jaguar xj supercharged, and have experienced several problems within the first 1,000 miles, the first of which presents a severe safety risk. 1) the tft digital speedometer display will vanish without warning. When this happens, you have no idea how fast you are going. The problem usually happens when exiting a dark garage and entering daylight, but also has happened while on the highway. The digital dash will remain blank for up to 15 seconds usually before slowly reappearing. Problem does not happen all the time, but it is distressing and dangerous when it does. 2) audio and navigation systems have become completely inoperative. When navigation was operating, it was directing you to make impossible driving maneuvers. 3) power windows will not remain closed. 4) numerous other problems, though not necessarily safety issues (have been reported to dealer).
