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

XJ8 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,500 miles


Car involved was a 2004 Jaguar XJ8. While traveling from St louis to tulsa on highway 44, shortly after the toll plaza and about 40 miles from tulsa, the right rear tire separated from the wheel suddenly and without any indication of prior trouble. This resulted in loss of control and flipping off the car which landed in the mud on the side of the highway. Fortunately, we had our seat belts on, and except for minor bruises, we were not injured. The car was totaled. This was a car in new condition with only 10500 miles on it. Our insurance co reimbursed us for the loss, bit did not come up with any explanation of the mishap. Jaguar and Continental tires were informed but no action taken. Here are more information which may be needed: State farm claim # [xxx] police report accident # [xxx].
