1990 Jaguar XJ40 Sovereign 4.0 from UK and Ireland
Luxurious, fast, comfortable bargain
Apart from existing faults, little or nothing.
Rear door central locking becoming intermittent.
Fan belt broke.
Excellent, easy car to drive.
Very comfortable - however front headrests do not adjust, so comfort could be improved.
Scare stories largly unjustified, this example was at bargain basement price yet soldiers on perfectly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Oops this review should read that I bought it in 2001.

Would those unfortunate enough to have a significant number of problems with their XJ40 Sov, (MY July 1990 onwards), please confirm the mileage/kilometers the car has traveled. This makes a BIG difference to the reliability of the Jag.
