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.

2002 Jaguar XK8 Reviews
2002 XK8 Coupe bought with 112k miles, black/black. Despite having apparently been well serviced immediately had problems with knock sensors and emissions control. $1500 to repair.
Since then runs great, rides and drives great on the highway. In town ride is rough as could be expected.
Think that a relationship with a mechanic familiar with these cars would be a plus. Think that its worth the pain though. Would buy it again.
