1999 Jaguar XJR 4.0 liter supercharged from North America
Expensive but a joy to drive (most of the time)
Stalling at speeds due to throttle body switch, tram-lining or "jumping" when hitting bumps. Imagine driving at 70 mph and the car stalls...
I've experienced sunroof problems (actual warping of the metal roof).
Expensive to maintain.
I've read in many places to get the V-8's in a 2000 and up model, due to the Nikasil bore coatings wearing off in the 1998-1999 models.
Beautiful car, a joy to drive, but I don't think a supercharged engine and stiffer suspension is good for this 2-ton sedan, because it can't handle bumps and potholes very well.
These cars are a great deal when used, however, the savings when buying an 8-year old car will cover most of the expenses.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
