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.

2004 Jaguar XJ8 Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 182014

XJ8 8-cyl

  • 77,560 miles


While proceeding to park in the driveway, the vehicle experienced a sudden acceleration and forcibly struck another vehicle that was parked in the garage. During this incident the driver had no control of braking or steering. The impact was severe enough to cause the airbag to deploy and sustain major damage to both vehicles.

problem #1

XJ8 8-cyl

  • 42,000 miles
I was making a left turn at 15 mph when the car suddenly accelerated for a few moments and then settled down. I then took 2 right turns at 10 mph and was attempting to apply the brake in a parking spot when the car suddenly accelerated running over a bush, 10 ft tree, and in to a ditch on East side of highway 41 in bonita springs before I could get the car to stop. I then drove in gingerly in to a parking spot and left it until it was towed to naples Jaguar the next morning. Myself and my three passengers were terrified and tortured by the trauma.
