I've had my '04 XJ8 for 8 months, 53,000, replaced Air Ride Compressor and 2 front shocks and the relay....very expensive and still receiving error 95% of the time. Window washer not working, parking sensor is now silent. Received the "parking brake error- DSC not available and the car shut off.... Restarted 2x's and error went away. Googled it and stated throttle body needs to be cleaned and or replaced. That could be dangerous especially if comming down a mountain in snow or ice or any inclemment conditions. Love the car but if there are more repairs in the future might trade it in. Cannot believe the transmission pan is plastic...go figure. The front windshield has swirls in it from the factory. How can this be with a $ 69,000 vehicle with only 53,373 miles on it.
Bought used 2004 Model and have driven for 10,000 miles with no problems except for a loose wiper arm that I repaired myself. The fancy lug nuts tend to break so get a spare. Also replaced front brake pads. Seems much more reliable and probably cheaper to repair than my previous Mercedes E320. Drives beautifully and very comfortable. My magic carpet ride.
had to change engine, waterpump, air suspenssion strut, water resovoir, brakes, lug nut studs, headlights, side marker, undertray, trunk air supporters, transmission garket, extremely toooooo many repairs, extremelly toooooooooooo expensive
Brakes went out at 10,000 miles, Sterring rack went out at 15,000 miles, Water pump went out at 25,000 miles, What is left?
