2003 Jaguar X-Type76,015
Car started hesitating between shifts, then jerking between gears. Then it stopped after I hard accelerated thru the gears, using the sport shift or gas pedal floored and allowd the car to go thru the gears. It then worked perfectly for about 2 weeks. Then it suddenly started totally losing ALL gears, had to pull over, wait for a a cool down. Then it was limped about 2 miles into a garage, where it lost reverse. HELP!!!
Transmission failed while driving on interstate. Only had the car a few months. Engine runs but will not go forward or reverse. Mechanic said that intermediate shaft in transmission broke. Say it common failure. Says they usually on need to replace the shaft with a stronger quality designed shaft. Has there been any recalls from the dealer concerning this type of transmission failure?
My vehicle is no longer able to reverse.

Transmission failed as well as the transfer case. Makes no sense after 41,000 miles to have this kind of failure.

I put the car in reverse and it would not go...made a revving noise as I pressed the gas pedal...would only stop and about 10 feet. Forward was no problem. No warning, no symptoms....mechanic says I need a new transmission. $3700 on a 13 year old car...(I bought it in 2001)

Car just stopped, unable to be driven at all. Needed to be taken to the shop on a flatbed. I cursed the shop owner, saying he didn't service my car properly. Then found out gearbox is a sealed unit, so he couldn't have caused the problem. Should have guessed that it would have problems, given that it's actually a Ford Mondeo underneath.

I decided to not get the car repaired as I was looking at a bill of 3,500 dollars. Two separate mechanics looked at it and both told me the transmission exploded. A dealer took it in trade for very little money and I got something else. I took care of that car better than I take care of myself and after 80,000 miles the transmission dies.

My 2003 Jaguar XJ8 began limping when I was at a stop or slightly engaged in traffic. Today the car had a hard time gaining speed, but I was able to make it home which was about 10 miles. The gearbox fault light was on the dash. I am not driving the car again until a qualified mechanic looks into this issue.
