1987 Jaguar Vanden Plas 4.2
Awesome car to drive and play with
Rear shocks wore out.
Rack and pinion seals and bushings wore out.
Wood grain trim cracking and splitting away.
The stereo went into (code) mode and will no longer work.
Left fuel gauge failed.
Right fuel return valve failed.
Several gauges and switches have failed.
This car is one of the most beautiful Jags I have ever seen. I get compliments on it all the time. I love the way it handles and performs.
Although it displays the typical classic Jag ailments, I love this car.
I also own an 88 XJ6, it too is a great car, but nothing compares to the 87 Vanden Plas in my opinion.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
