Maintained. No problems. New tires once, new brakes, pads, etc once.
About a year ago while braking to slow down car but instead car speed increased lunging forward. Increased brake pressure & it stopped.
Never happened again until about 3 months ago & it's becoming frequent. I pulled into a parking place this week braked to park, with brake on, saw rpm' of 1 increase to 4 in a second jerking car forward with brake completely on.
Also, drivers seat airbag light signal flashes on & off intermittently, but sometimes remains on.
When traveling at speeds of 70mph, the engine warning lights come on without warning and the vehicle has no power. This is a very dangerous situation and should warrant a recall.
I am working on 2005 XK8 THE BATTERY WENT DEAD , THE OWNER LOST THE MASTER KEY I HAVE THE "VALET" KEY AND IT WILLNOT OPEN THE TRUNK FOR ACCESS TO THE BATTERY ! WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE ?
Just bought a 2005 Jaguar XJ8L 2 days ago and drove it to work this morning. Nearly had 2 accidents because the "night mode" on my mirrors (side and rearview) make it so dark, it's impossible to see the cars around me! I checked owners' manuals online, and don't see the answer on any forums except to say that the feature is "automatic." Does that mean I cannot adjust or disable this feature? Maybe just buy non-Jag mirrors? I find this really frightening.
