1988 Jaguar Vanden Plas


Fantastic vehicle


I have only had two issues so far with the vehicle. Water pump failed me, and the passenger side upper seatbelt malfunctioned in the up position.

General Comments:

I love the car; it was technically a rescue... I pulled this beauty out of the woods. It was in a bush, growled up almost through the hood. I pulled the car home and started right away. Oh I forgot to mention that I paid 200 for the car.

I was impressed at the fact that after about 5 hours of cleaning out fuel lines and removing the fuel tank, then patching the small pin holes across the fuel tank, I put a hot battery on it and waited for the electronics to start working. The car argued with me about starting for about another hour until it finally received good fuel to the injectors. Voila, it started after 12 years of setting miserably in the woods behind an old man's house.

I've found a classic beauty that runs like a top. It is unusual for a car to sit so long and start so effortlessly. I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of metal and craftsmanship of a fine vehicle.

My wife drives this car daily now, and everything still works in and on it. I have no complaints whatsoever...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
