Center Arm Rest Cup Holder May Break

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

Change Automatic Transmission Oil Every 60,000 Miles

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.
