Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Jaguar XJ8 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 312011

XJ8 Vanden Plas

  • Automatic transmission
  • 112,500 miles


The car drives great below 30 mph and over 70 mph. While driving between the two levels, when giving gas I am fine. While trying to maintain a certain speed, a strong whining sound takes over as though it is desperate for gas. When using cruise control, the problem lessens but is still present. An Aamco transmission shop fixed an oil leak and hooked the vehicle up to update all the necessary codes, problem still exists. A Jaguar specialists in Naples Florida (also works on Aston Martins) said they never experienced this before.

I saw on a previous Jaguar forum where someone else had this problem but a solution was never given. Please help!
