2000 Jaguar XK8 Problems

The cup holder in the front center arm rest is flimsy and may break, making it impossible to close the cup holder assembly.

Problems when opening or closing the convertible top may be fixed by flushing the hydraulic fluid and replacing it with an improved Jaguar fluid.

The automatic transmission oil is synthetic and Jaguar claims it never needs changing. However, to prolong the transmission life, our technicians strongly recommend changing the automatic transmission oil at 60,000 miles.

Use only Jaguar-approved fluid and carefully follow the Jaguar instructions for refilling the transmission.

Maintenance is necessary (and expensive) Repairs...
