Jaguar Vanden Plas Problems

Exterior Door Handles May Break

The exterior door handles are of poor quality; they frequently break or do not offer enough leverage to open the door from the outside.

Overheated engine may damage cylinder bores
If this engine is allowed to severely overheat, the cylinder bores will suffer damage, resulting in excessive engine oil consumption.
Retrofit kit available to replace problematic self-leveling suspension

The rear self-leveling suspension is problematic and very expensive to repair. A retrofit kit is available to convert this suspension back to conventional shock absorbers and springs.

Jaguar Vanden Plas Questions

What could be wrong dash lights flashing and gauges bounce of zero repeatedly. (1 answer)

This happens every time you drive the car for more than about 15 to 20 minutes and sometimes more frequently. No codes have been thrown at all the check engine does not come on alone ever only when all flash. While all this is happening car runs ok but after a while it bogs down sporadically.

What does "fail safe engine mode" warning light mean? (1 answer)

Light comes on when driving at 55mph, not on ignition.

My radio went dead and have no sound the CD player Bluetooth is out too? (1 answer)

The system has been going off and on for a year now but I would restart the engine and it would come back on but this time it stayed off.

IF U HAVE WHAT APPEARS TO BE A STARTER OR ALTINATOT OR BATTERY PROBLEM.....PLEASE check under the hood on the passanger side. there is a booted coupling in front of that wear...
Bought this car used with 58K miles on it. I've put 8K miles on it since. Have had few problems with it. The ride is smooth and quiet and acceleration is good. Get many comments on what a great looking car it is. I think Ford ironed out many of the mechanical problems Jag had before. Have found a few local mechanics (ASE certified) who are willing to work on the vehicle when needed. So fa...
I bought this car used with around 40K miles on it - so I was the second owner. I really loved this car, it’s sleek, fast, comfortable, and you feel like the Queen of England when you drive down the road in it (mine was emerald green – the color of money ;-)). The real problem is that you love the car so much you don’t know when to get rid of it – I thought I would keep it until it was an ant...
