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.

According to posts on the internet, this is a very common problem and a dangerous one with Jags. The car will go into "limp mode" and won't go any faster than 25 miles an hour and may not make it uphill. If this happens where there is no place to go to the side of the road, then traffic will be blocked and may cause accidents. Jaguar apparently does not acknowledge the problem. The throttle body assembly needs to be replaced.
