2000 Jaguar XK8 Problems
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.
The thermostat may stick partially closed resulting in an engine to overheating condition. Replacement of the stuck thermostat should correct this problem.
Engine overheating may be caused by a failed water pump impeller; an improved water pump is available.

2000 Jaguar XK8 Reviews
I own a black/black 2000 XKR convertible - "R" Being the supercharged XK8. It is the most beautiful car in the world. Truly a work of art. Lots of hinky electrical/sensor issues. Do your homework before you buy so you know what you are getting into. If you want the ease of maintenance and reliability of a Camry, this is NOT the car you want. Maintenance is necessary (and expensive) Repairs are common (and expensive). Did I mention how good it looks? It has great road manners & drives wonderfully, but will go like a BOH with just a touch of the accelerator. Is it worth it? Maybe, but it IS a commitment. No question.
Smooth and powerful what a car and not bad on petrol
