1989 Jaguar XJ6 Sovereign 3.6 liter gasoline from North America
A experience that you will not regret
No specific problems; message centre sends occasional messages, which disappear when the car is switched off and do not reappear on restart.
A minor power steering leak was easily fixed.
The car is in almost "new" condition, even though it is 21 years old. The Sovereign is the upper end model of the XJ6, and carries the luxuries that have made Jaguar famous. In Alpine Green and creamy leather interior, one travels in surroundings rarely duplicated. When one considers the purchase price paid for a vehicle like this, and the intangible personal feelings that come from driving such a beautiful machine, most other cars become quite ordinary.
We have a 2005 X Type, which in itself is a great car, but a completely different drive. After owning 3 "Jags" I can only say, go get one, but read up on the "Car Survey" reports before you go looking.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm looking at a 1989 XJ6. One owner, looks brand new, 37,000 original miles, it looks like showroom quality. Guy said I can have it for $4,000.00. Good buy? Thanks.

Yes, excellent buy with 37K. Most reliable of all the Jags.

Sounds like the car I bought from Oregon! A 1989 XJ6 from this guy called Robert; I regret it so much!
