1989 Jaguar XJ40 Sovereign 4.0L from Australia and New Zealand
Best thing I ever built
Wiper would stop in the wrong position: replaced the micro switch, which cost me $4.
Rear window motor not connected: last owner disconnected the motor as it would go down but not up, stripped the door down and sprayed WD40 on the switch connectors, and now it works perfectly.
Bulb warning light was on: replaced one of the rear number plate light bulbs.
Air con unit is not blowing air through vents: this is due to lack of use; gave the dash a bash when changing the switches (the air flaps get stuck and will start to work once they have been freed).
Unable to afford one when I worked at the factory. Paid NZ$2800 for this one, best car ever. Will take it out for a drive just for the enjoyment of it!
For a 26 year old car, it still drives better than a lot of new ones.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
