1990 Jaguar XJS V12 from North America
The best car value in the Grand Touring segment
Window switches, steering rack bushings, catalytic converter, fuel rail hoses, lower radiator hose, air conditioning, cruise control.
I have owned this car for nearly 18 years. It is the best riding, most enjoyable, and nearly the most reliable car I have ever owned.
I regularly have people comment on the car. Yesterday, a guy in a new Lexus at a stoplight motioned for me to roll down my window, so he could tell me what a beautiful car I had.
Do the maintenance. All will be well, and you will just have a blast.
Now I am not advocating this, but there is a thing called the 621/2 shift, that only Jag owners know about. Try it once if the car is in top shape. Good luck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own an XJS and have never heard of a 621/2 shift and am intrigued...

I agree, this "621/2 shift" sounds interesting....
I've searched Google and found nothing.

Is this 621\2 shift thing for real? Can't find anything on it.

I know I am late to this discussion, but I am entertaining the idea of picking up a '90 XJS so I am looking through reviews. If you guys haven't found any answers yet or have stopped looking, the 621/2 shift may be referring to the fault code for the solenoid, "P0781-62: 1-2 Shift". I did a little research and it seems these cars may develop a hard shift between certain gears if the solenoid is having issues. The 62 1-2 is the solenoid between first and second. You're right that there isn't much info out there, but I would venture a guess that this means you could really gas it in first and when it changes to second it would really slam in there. Just a thought.
