Have had my XJ6 Sovereign for 6 years now. A great entry model into Jaguar driving, but get as late a model as possible, 1990 on up or later. Don't get 1989 or lower. If possible get a 1995 or later.
Fantastic engine - bulletproof. Nice styling, silky ride. Few have a Jag, it stands out. I love to drive it, the serene interior keeps me happy in traffic. A car for someone with stronger individualistic tendencies, and more money, although you can get a real nice one now for under $2,000.
Finicky electrics, needs better fitting of interior parts. Expensive to repair. Anything that goes wrong is noticed easier when a car is highly refined. Not very rust resistant to corrosion in certain spots. Runs on premium gas.
