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.

2002 Jaguar xkr check engine light illuminated and gas fumes could be smelled. The vehicle check engine light illuminated. The dealer was contacted and explained that it was nothing serious and likely due to something in the emission system. When the vehicle was taken in for it's 20000 mile checkup the problem would be rectified. The driver had complained to her husband about the smell of fumes which made her cough. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the service advisor explained that a factory modification had been fitted to rectify the problem. After the modification the fumes could still be smelled. These fumes caused the driver to feel ill while driving. The light illuminated again. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer who explained that the original modification had been superseded and that the factory issued further modification, which had been fitted. The fumes were still smelled after the second modification. The driver has since suffered from breathing problems, a dry cough, pain in the lungs and was generally lethargic and fatigued. Her doctor diagnosed her with having concomitant interstitial lung disease caused by inhaling fumes.
