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.

2013 Jaguar XJ Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 302013

XJ 6-cyl

  • 2,000 miles


While at a stop light, engine revved up and the car started rolling forward. I had to brake hard to stop it. This happened about 3 more times over the next 2 months. One time the engine raced very high and I had to put it in neutral to avoid crashing. At 5000 miles I took it to the dealer who said they could find no diagnoses from the auto computer and could not replicate the problem. They claimed to have no knowledge how to fix, but now I see a number of reports on the internet about Jaguar rapid and unexplained acceleration problems. I feel Jaguar is not being honest about this problem -- and it is dangerous condition.
