Minor electrical fault - passenger window would roll down and inch or two on its own during heavy rainfall. Fixed under warranty (leaking weather-strip in door, and window motor damaged by water).
Headlight bulbs failed with unexpected regularity. Easy to self-replace, and spare bulbs provided free by dealer after I said I didn't need a service tech do the work.
Water pump failure at 24K. Replaced under warranty. Excellent prompt and attentive service including all transportation costs covered by Jag (including a $200 ferry fare - round trip - to get to/from the dealer).
Elegant, sophisticated, comfortable, beautiful and powerful.
The seats on the early XK8 models, with the fixed headrest, were not perfect. A fully adjustable headrest would have been perfect.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
