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.

There is a common throttle body failure in 2002 Jaguar. When this failure occurs, the car goes into "fail safe" mode and reduces speed to 30 mph, creating a hazard on highways with limited access. Investigation has revealed that this is a common failure of an non-wear component, and represents a factory defect and a safety issue.
