If I could marry it, I would
My upper AC hose leaked all the freon out (common with XJS's).
I think I have a couple of oil seal leaks (common with XJS's).
My passenger side window won't go down (might be the switch).
The car overheats when AC was working (somewhat common with these V12's)
The XJS coupe is the most beautiful looking car on the road.. Its long sleek hood and the magnificent shape of the rear window area truly is stunning.. I had a choice between the coupe and the convertable, and the coupe won hands down... The convertable just doesn't have the graceful lines that the coupe has.. looks like a big bathtub with a giant laundry sack stuck on the back... Its even uglier with the top up..
I've had my problems with the Jag, but I knew these cats were naughty before I bought one, its worth the aggravation..
I have one word of advice to anyone thinking of buying one... LEARN HOW TO WORK ON THEM YOURSELF.. IF you have mechanics do it, you'll end up in the poorhouse eating catfood.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
