Change Automatic Transmission Oil Every 60,000 Miles

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

Jaguar XKR Recalls

Possible Power Steering Fluid Leak

Leaks may develop from the metal power steering lines due to improper corrosion protection. Loss of power steering fluid can result in a loss of power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. Leaking power steering fluid also increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the suspect or leaking power steering lines. This recall is expected to begin by April 11, 2011. The Jaguar recall number is J018.

Power Brake Assistance May Be Lost

The vacuum supply hose to the power brake unit may have been mis-routed during vehicle assembly. This may bring the hose too close to the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve connections at the exhaust manifold. Contact with the hot exhaust system may cause the vacuum hose to melt, leading to a loss of brake assistance and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the hose and adjust the routing; damaged noses will be replaced. This recall is expected to begin on May 25, 2007. The Jaguar recall number is J003.

Incorrect Assembly of Accelerator Pedal may Increase Risk of Accidents

On certain vehicles the accelerator pedal arms were incorrectly assembled. Causing the clearance between the accelerator and the brake pedal to be reduced. This may cause you to step on both the pedals simultaneously and cause a crash. The pedal may also get stuck on the pedal stop, causing a dangerous situation.  Dealer will inspect and replace accelerator pedal assembly. The Jaguar recall # is R847

Jaguar XKR Reviews

Suspension is odd in that 50% of the data is feed in by your actual speed and the other 50% is determined by your current road conditions. Hit a bumpy stretch @ 28mph and you'll likely bounce all over the place. Take the same bumpy stretch @ 58mph and you'll be tight as can be and roll right over them !!
I am the 2nd owner of a beautiful 2002xkr coupe.I changed the exhaust and replaced the air filter with a less restrictive aftermarket unit.Wow,what a differance.The car is a true gem to drive and own.I love this car and would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone that enjoys cars.
