1987 Jaguar XJ6 from North America
I am so glad, even with its faults, that I purchased this car!
I don't know if the gas tanks are switching.
Leak in break line.
I purchased this car one month ago yesterday. We got it at a steal of $1000. It's the best running and riding car I've ever been in. However, listening to you guys maybe it's not the car for me. I would like to think a car should be functional. I drive my car everyday. Today was our first major problem.
I have never used my passenger-side gas tank before and although the fuel gauge is showing the right-side tank is operational, my car stopped today as though it was out of gas. As I was driving it, it started to decelerate and was chugging and spitting. Once I pulled over and turned it off, I tried to restart it and although it is turning over fine, it won't catch. I've run out of gas several times before. She is acting like she's running off the empty tank.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1987 XJ6 too. It is a real pleasure. My advice is to find a local mechanic who is experienced with the Series III Jag you have. He will fix your gas tank problem and anything else. Parts are plentiful and after market ones reasonably priced. If you were comfortable paying $400 a month on new car payments (that's $4,800 a year), than your Jag maintenance will be a good deal in comparison. It's a 20-year old car so things like gas line switches wear out. If you can't find an experienced Jag mechanic you can trust, then dump it.
