1993 Jaguar Vanden Plas XJ6 4.0 from North America
Stay away from this brand
I have replace parts equivalent to 1.2 times the cost of the car. Everything from driver's door handle ($500), cracked headlight assembly ($550), both heater fans ($900), trunk (boot) lock ($500), miscellaneous other parts for $1,500. There are an additional $7,000 of repairs the dealer inspection has identified.
It left me on the side of the road, and been towed, several times.
In short, this Jaguar has been in the shop about half as many times as I have driven it. This brand sells parts for 3 to 4 times the cost of any other car company. Labor at the dealer is $160! The cars were engineered by high school drop outs.
Tomorrow the tow truck comes and hauls it away. It is going to the junk yard. I am a sucker for having bought a piece of trash like a Jaguar. Friends told me it would be this way, yet I heard Jaguar had turned the corner in the years before this was made.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
