1995 Jaguar XJ6 from North America


A smooth, powerful steady performer, that will look as classy in 2021 as it does now!


Seat adjuster on the driver's side.

Sunroof leak.

Throttle linkage sticking even after a clean out at a single spot near the beginning of its range. Solved by inserting a nylon tie at that point, thus bypassing it.

Seat adjuster on the passenger side does not go back far enough.

Emissions issue never resolved, so it has been given a "pleasure" designation so as to pass. Has reduced gas mileage to around 15.5/18 MPG.

Interior trim pieces - self repaired.

clock has dimmed and is no longer readable

undercarriage came loose from chassis nearly caused severe accident but mechanic caught it and re-bolted.

seats are showing age (some cracked leather on drivers bucket)

General Comments:

This car has been remarkably reliable, and maintenance has been pretty good, especially given the undeservedly poor reputation. I get admiring glances and comments all the time, all out of proportion to its actual cost/value. This was a dealer's car, and has upgrades such as wire wheels, built-in GPS, enhanced Bosch electronics, custom dual exhausts, high flow air intake.

Running on new Michelin Pilots, it is very smooth, especially on the highway with the occasional age appropriate rattle.

Purchase for $12,500 in 1995, and have driven nearly 40,000 miles. Investment in repairs may be as high as $6,000.

1995 Jaguar XJ6 X300 4.0 from North America




Nothing. Just a few cosmetic issues.

General Comments:

I've owned this car for about 3 weeks car now.

When I first drove it, it felt like I was sitting on a booster seat, but it was just a matter of getting used to it.

One of the reasons I bought this car was because they're not common and look nice. It turns a lot of heads. Sometimes I feel embarrassed when people stare...

I paid 2650 for this car, and so far, I'm very happy with it. Originally, I was looking to buy a '98 Infiniti Q45, but they were too expensive, and I read a lot of bad reviews on the Jaguar in general, but I did my research and found that the '95-97 models were reliable, especially the V6 engines, so I decided to buy one of these.

The interior in general could have been better built. The headliner is sagging a bit. The radio is all worn out. The clock doesn't work. I know the car is 15 years old, but I just feel like it should hold up better.

The engine is strong and feels like a V8.

I too have had to deal with the dead clock and the headliner. But it is an awesome car, beautiful interior, and the best ride of any car I've had.. (MB280se and Lincoln MarkV included).. HOWEVER, if you have a V6 in that car of yours, it's NOT a JAG. It's gonna be a straight 6 or a 12 in your year.

Yes my car is the straight 6 engine. I just didn't specify it. It also has an XJR interior with the bone color. I really like it.

I've owned a 94 Infinti Q45, a 2000 Lincoln LS and a 2001 Lincoln Continental. While they were all nice, the Jaguar has a personality all its own.

General Comments:

Brought this light blue Jag off the internet a few years back. Found a good straight low mileage Sport pack for under 20k, so drove it across Australia (3800kms) in total, she never missed a beat. I was so impressed that I doubt I'd ever buy anything other than a Jag again.

After owning several luxury sedans, including Volvo, Saab and most recently a 1965 mk2, the XJ6 would have to be the most comfortable, reliable vehicle I have owned. Great luxury cruising at a budget cost. Will be looking to buy another low mileage one when she has done her dash.
