1992 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ6 Sovereign 4dr Sedan


Review

The manufacturer intent on selling new cars with much fanfare, but like an illegitimate child it wants nothing to do with it after it is sold. The Dealer-body chimes right in with this. In many ways the dealers are worse for their inability to build product loyalty, they see the owners as plain and simple cash-cows.
Jaguars in many ways are wonderful cars that have a lot to offer, but with the present dealership structure the car will never become what it could be. I showed up at a dealership with a gleaming older model and was ignored at the parts dept. for 40 minutes staff walking by me, until I walked out. So much for multi-brand mega dealerships owned by racing magnates who's mechanics aren't even trained to work on older models. Jaguar should be elated have so many enthusiasts that lovingly restore their legacy products, but like their dealers, they don't care.

Review

What a head turner! If I had a nickel
for every time someone stopped me to
talk about this car I would have over
$3! (which would pay for enough gas to
go about 15 miles.) The car is
powerful, not quick off the start but
smooth and fast going from 50 to 100.
The ride is comfortable. The upkeep can
be expensive, but if you stay ahead of
the curve by doing preventative
maintenance it is very reliable. Change
the bushings, hoses, and other rubber
mounts, put in new switches and you
should be all set.


Best Features

looks, v12, power


Worst Features

kind of pointless on a car that has been out of production for 8 years, but a more available manual transmission would have been nice.

Review

Jag's are terrible mechanically once
you get to know them. I bought mine
used and at first it was great. Then
the problems started. It would stall
for no apparent reason and refuse to
restart for a couple of hours. Now it
has an electrical gremlin where the
battery discharges. I had my mechanic
check the car and he cannot trace the
problem.

It is a little anemic in the power
department, but that is bearable.
When it runs, the ride is great, the
seats are comfortable and I can drive
it for hours without feeling fatigue.
The problem is reliability. I finally
grew tired of the problems and dumped
it.


Best Features

Interior, seats, ride.


Worst Features

More power, better reliability.

1992 Jaguar XJ-Series XJS 2dr Coupe


Review

Just got this in showroom condition
with only 15,200 miles on it from a
friend who is original owner, for
$8,500. Old design but boy does it get
the looks!


Best Features

Exterior design. Few cars, old or new, can beat this.


Worst Features

Tight squeeze for me at 6-2, no cupholders, and it needs a 4 or 5 speed tranny, not the 3 speed it came with.

Review

This is the most BEAUTIFUL, exciting,
FUN, attention getter, PRIDEFUL,
powerful, SEXY, smooth, CAN'T STOP
MYSELF FROM STARING AT, vehicle I have
ever had the PLEASURE to own!!!!!!!!!
I love the cockpit/racecar feel/view
that it has. It's low to the ground,
and goes 0-60 in 7.5 seconds.


Best Features

Premium sound system. New pioneer CD system instead of cassette. Electric seat functions. TRIP COMPUTER calculates your average speed, mileage, fuel consumption, average fuel con.per trip, and fuel con. at that moment,and time this enables you to economize.


Worst Features

Cup holders and more leg room for the back seats.BUT---The holders you can order!
