Jaguar XK8 Problems

Flush Hydraulic Fluid to Fix Problems Opening/Closing Convertible Top

Problems when opening or closing the convertible top may be fixed by flushing the hydraulic fluid and replacing it with an improved Jaguar fluid.

Center Arm Rest Cup Holder May Break

The cup holder in the front center arm rest is flimsy and may break, making it impossible to close the cup holder assembly.

Change Automatic Transmission Oil Every 60,000 Miles

The automatic transmission oil is synthetic and Jaguar claims it never needs changing. However, to prolong the transmission life, our technicians strongly recommend changing the automatic transmission oil at 60,000 miles.

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

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 

Automatic Transmission Shifts Into Reverse Without Warning

On certain vehicles with automatic transmissions, with a forward "Drive" gear selected and the vehicle stationary or in forward motion, the transmission could potentially select "Reverse" without warning.
