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.

2011 Jaguar XJ Owner Comments

XJ 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles


The contact owns a 2011 Jaguar Xj. The contact stated that when shifting into drive, the vehicle suddenly accelerated with the brake depressed. The brake pedal was depressed with extreme force and the contact shifted into park before the vehicle would stop. The failure was experienced several times. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who performed a diagnostic but was unable to diagnose the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 4,000 and the approximate current mileage was 8,000. Consumer stated his wife also experienced sudden acceleration. She shifted the vehicle into drive, with her foot firmly on the brake, when suddenly the vehicle accelerated dramatically to what she characterized as full throttle. She pressed harder on the brake pedal and immediately shifted the vehicle back into park. The engine speed then returned to normal. The vehicle was then taken to the dealer. Updated 04/15/13 updated 4/24/13 updated 05/14/13...updated 05/22/13 the consumer and the dealer discussed at length the possible explanations for the sudden acceleration and concluded that inadvertent simultaneous application of the brake and accelerator pedal was a distinct possibility.
