Worst car I have EVER owned, out of 54 cars
NEVER, NEVER, buy this model from Jaguar. The company should be ashamed to have manufactured such a terrible product. I have owned 6 Jaguars, and never had any of the same issues as this piece of junk. The previous owner had saved all receipts for the work done at the dealer, which included replacement of timing chain tensioners (always break, and always defective on these models) which ruined the motor at 37,000. Engine rebuilt, now upon my buying the car the tensioners gave way again, replaced with new generation metal. Just last week the engine failed, bent rod.
Will sell this beautiful looking car for $1,000 if I can get it. These things were $70,000 when new, that should say it all. You can baby these cars and still they will fail. Terrible engine design and terribly high repair costs. Stay away from these cars.
Get the 1995-1997 XJ6, they are bullet proof iron horses. They will run forever.
Learn from all the negative press on these XJ8's. Jaguar should be ashamed of themselves.
Never buy this car!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
