1996 Jaguar XJ6 6 from North America
Great Car, Gorgeous Lines, Fun to drive
I have had no problems with my JAG.
I love how smooth this car is. I think that it is the best luxury car for the money period. I have owned 2 Lexus LS400's and 3 Porsche 911's and this car is probably my favorite. It has beautiful lines. You feel like you are driving a Bentley for less than a Honda!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I was thinking of changing my 93 xj for an LS400. I see that you have owned 2 of these. Why do you prefer the jag?
I might just keep mine depending on your opinions.

I just bought a used 1996 XJ6 with minor exterior imperfections (presumably from the handicapped driver who owned it before me... I found his mirror-hanger in the glove box... guess he was nearsighted when backing up, causing the paint scrapings on the rear bumper) and a sunroof that needs to be manually opened.
I drove it 30 miles from the auction lot home and holy crap... this is the funnest car I've ever driven. Even with the paint anomalies, I was getting looks from other drivers with cars that probably cost 10 times what I paid for this beast (I only paid 2300 USD! and it only has 89k on the odometer with carfax reporting only 2 owners!)...
Anyway, I'm going to get the car checked out and get a thorough fluid change this week and get a feel for how much that goes for. It needs two rear tires, which I imagine won't be cheap because they'll probably try to sell me speed tires when in fact, I will probably never reach the 5 o'clock position of the speedometer. If I did, my face would probably peel off!
I will post again in a few weeks to report how the first month buying this 'as-is' vehicle has gone. Cheers!
