1990 Jaguar XJS V12
The best car value in the Grand Touring segment
Window switches, steering rack bushings, catalytic converter, fuel rail hoses, lower radiator hose, air conditioning, cruise control.
I have owned this car for nearly 18 years. It is the best riding, most enjoyable, and nearly the most reliable car I have ever owned.
I regularly have people comment on the car. Yesterday, a guy in a new Lexus at a stoplight motioned for me to roll down my window, so he could tell me what a beautiful car I had.
Do the maintenance. All will be well, and you will just have a blast.
Now I am not advocating this, but there is a thing called the 621/2 shift, that only Jag owners know about. Try it once if the car is in top shape. Good luck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own an XJS and have never heard of a 621/2 shift and am intrigued...

I agree, this "621/2 shift" sounds interesting....
I've searched Google and found nothing.

Is this 621\2 shift thing for real? Can't find anything on it.

I know I am late to this discussion, but I am entertaining the idea of picking up a '90 XJS so I am looking through reviews. If you guys haven't found any answers yet or have stopped looking, the 621/2 shift may be referring to the fault code for the solenoid, "P0781-62: 1-2 Shift". I did a little research and it seems these cars may develop a hard shift between certain gears if the solenoid is having issues. The 62 1-2 is the solenoid between first and second. You're right that there isn't much info out there, but I would venture a guess that this means you could really gas it in first and when it changes to second it would really slam in there. Just a thought.
