Summary:

Great car, buy used, great deal

Faults:

Replaced front brakes, pads and shocks, fuel fail/23 light came on, went off. Head light comes loose over rough bumps, just push it back, lock on one rear door sticks a bit, just needs to be lubed I'm sure.

General Comments:

Car really has been very good to me, great balance, people love it.

Pretty good in snow, no real issues at all, has enough ground clearance to get me through mud season.

I have a local guy that loves Jags and works on them for a reasonable rate. Stunningly beautiful car, just handsome as all hell. Sits in a corner very nicely.

Summary:

The worst car ever made

Faults:

From the day I bought this car, something was wrong. I only ended up owning it for 11 months and I put in over $9,000 worth of repairs (and nothing was wrong as of the day I bought it). I had to replace all four rotors and pads (they all warped) for $1,300, the fuel pump for $1,250, all the O2 censors for $500, the engine fan (both of them) for $900, the AC for $350, multiple circuits (they kept blowing which in turn blew out my tail lights and every time I replaced them, they blew again) for who knows how much money when you add all them up, and many other problems. Not a month went by when I did not have to take it to the dealership which charges $90/hour for labor and adds (they specifically told me) 25% onto the cost of every part. I tried to take it to other places, but they refused (including Ford dealerships which obviously own Jaguar) because they all said they were not trained to work on Jags. On top of this, an oil change costs $95 on a Jag XJ6. I almost never made it out of the shop for less than $500.

General Comments:

This is by far the worst car I have ever owned or can even imagine owning. I do not know how they are still in business when they make cars this poor quality. Even the myth that Jags are fast is false. this is one of the slowest cars I have ever driven. It was extremely smooth at high speeds (over 100 mph) but it takes too long to get there. Forget taking anyone off the line, my Jeep is 10 times faster than it from a stop. The one and only upside to this is that everyone at the dealership is extremely nice and they have great customer service. I had previously driven my dad's Jeep and have since bought my own. I have never had any problems with it and will never buy anything different again.

This man obviously bought a cheap Jaguar not that appeared to be in good running order. If you don't have the money to take care of a jag don't whine about service costs. I had an 88' XJ6 and it cost me $6000 a year. Also driving a vehicle over 100MPH isn't a great way to keep it in shape. Everyone knows that Jags aren't more expensive to buy, but to maintain, also the 88'-94' XJ6 was built on the now infamous XJ40 frame is notorious for having problems especially in the electrical and computer systems. Also, Jaguars that are properly maintained are quite fast and nimble for their size. my 88' took 7.1 seconds to get to 60MPH which is actually faster then the manufacturer's listed time of 7.4. In conclusion, this is a classic case of somebody buying something and not truly knowing what they were getting themselves into.
