I have always owned jaguars so when my 1988 XJ6 finally got too rusty I already knew what I was going to get. At first I was on the fence about this vehicle. It wasn't as smooth as the old jaguars, but after spending more time with this vehicle I have to say it has grown on me like moss on a rock. It acts much lighter than my old one especially on tight turns. It has more body roll then a BMW, but that's the way English cars are. Even though the engine is rougher it is faster off the line, and this is the first Jaguar I have had with sport mode and I have to say I find it quite enjoyable. The interior is classic jaguar all the way, however it does concern me that I am starting to see some pieces from the dreaded blue oval (Ford) in there. Altogether this is a great vehicle both mechanically and cosmetically. It has held up very well and does not show its true age at all. I look forward too many happy years in this vehicle and plan to keep my relationship with jaguar in the future.
