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.

XJ8 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
The contact owns a 2004 Jaguar XJ8. While driving 65 mph, the front end of the vehicle lowered and began bouncing up and down. The vehicle experienced a loss of suspension, which caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle. A few warning lights illuminated on the instrument panel, two of which stated "vehicle too low" and "error suspension fault". the vehicle was towed to a Jaguar dealer and they stated that the failure was due to the suspension relay. The vehicle was repaired and drove normally for approximately 500 miles. The failure recurred and the vehicle was towed back to the dealer. They replaced the front driver's side strut, which was leaking air. This is what caused the front of the vehicle to drop down. There had been no further occurrences; however, the contact is concerned that the passenger side will experience the same suspension failure. The failure mileage was 50,000 and current mileage was 52,000. Updated 10-29-08 the air suspension system leaked air and the caussed the entire front end to rust. The consumer stated when the incident occurred, the vehicle could not be steered as the front end of the vehicle fell down. Updated 10/30/08.
