Ignition coil failure may cause the engine to run poorly. The fault can be intermittent and may or may not illuminate the Check Engine Light.

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.

To avoid excess play and wear problems, the front wheel bearings should be periodically inspected and serviced.

The front spindle the wheel bearing is mounted on may wear requiring replacement.

Improved coolant hoses that are able to withstand cooling system pressure are available (Jaguar Service Bulletin S518). These improved hoses help avoid engine overheating by preventing the coolant hose from inadvertently detaching from the engine.

The brake pressure accumulator, a component of the antilock brake system, frequently fails. This may cause a stiff brake pedal, forcing the driver to apply excess pedal pressure to slow down or stop the vehicle.

After the car has been washed or in the rain, the cavity around the fuel filler neck may be filled with water due to a blocked drain. The water and debris can then enter the gas tank when the gas cap is removed for refueling. It is recommended to clear the cavity of any water or debris before removing the fuel cap.

The front automatic seat belt commonly sticks in its track and fails to properly operate, causing a safety issue. This also causes an electrical draw that will drain the battery and may cause the car not to start. The dealer may cover (or partially cover) the repair costs.

A plastic component in the HID head light may fail and cause the head light to point toward the ground. The adjuster—which is very expensive—needs to be replaced to fix the problem.

A defective HVAC blower motor, blower motor controller, or relay/micro switch in the control panel may cause the heater/AC blower motor not to work. Diagnoses may be required to determine the exact cause of the fault.
