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.

On Saturday, May 12, I was pulling into a parking space at the post office. The car suddenly lurched forward and my brakes were not responsive, my car slammed into the curb. Had there been a pedestrian crossing the parking lot at that time, the results could have been fatal. I called Jaguar to se if this was a known problem, I was told it was not. However, there are several reports of this problem found on the Internet. I have since labeled my car a 'killing machine' and I know each time that I drive it may be my last.
