A known defect in the manufacture of the 2004 through 2006 Jaguar Xj8S and needs to be recalled for repair in regard to this model's air suspension. In cold temperatures (30 degrees F or below), the air suspension system fails to keep the front end of the vehicle suspended. A red light on the instrument cluster lights up and the message center displays the warning, "vehicle too low". this particular incident occurred this morning, 11/12/2013, as I started my car (27 degrees F outside). Unfortunately, this happened to me 6 months ago while traveling on the interstate across country when the outside temperature dipped to 29 degrees F. I was going the speed limit of 70 mph at the time that the suspension suddenly dropped. It could have caused a major car accident. As soon as the outside temperature rises above 30 degrees F, the air suspension compressor kicks in and lifts the vehicle up to its appropriate height. This known defect in the manufacture of the air suspension is highly dangerous and a recall needs to be enacted against the manufacturer, Jaguar. I have discovered on the internet countless complaints of this problem.
