1991 Jaguar XJS Convertible 5.3 V12 from North America
Wonderful highway car, pure luxury, but can be a money pit
Bushings (too soft).
Rear seals (leak).
Brakes (wear quickly, due to the size/weight of the car).
Great cruiser, kind of scary in heavy traffic, reliable but it seemed something always needed attention. Best suited for a DIY. Very comfortable, dismal gas mileage (combined over time about 12 MPG US), high quality of materials, very nice top and mechanism.
VERY SOLID-SAFE CAR. I was driving around 35-40 and a big station wagon (77 Mercury) pulled in front of me. Head on at a slight angle. Other than the scare, I didn't get a bruise. The SW driver broke his pinker on the steering wheel. I'm looking to buy another, but this time I will convert it to a 5-speed and install roll bars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
