1987 Jaguar XJ6 4.2 from North America
Anything and everything electrical.
Radiator fan destroyed original radiator.
Exhaust system totally rusted out.
Cruise control never worked.
For some reason, steering wheel refuses to stay aligned.
I received this car from my dad at 17 when I acquired the rank of Eagle Scout. It had been badly abused by 10+ years of Texas heat, and required extensive work to get it running to full specs again.
However, after almost of year of tinkering (it’s my daily driver, so I can only do a little bit at a time) it’s running strong. The only way I can think to describe it is like driving a giant couch. The seats are soft, but supportive, and the car handles like a 2000-pound Honda and I would recommend this to any parent as their child’s first car (safest car ever built according to the British government).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
