1993 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ6 Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this car 2 months ago and my gosh, it is just awesome. My wife loves it, my kids, I even get stopped on street asking about it. It had one issue 3 weeks into owning it and it was the front fan didn't go off and drained battery. After mechanic told me to take off negative on battery in back until he could look at it, it stopped staying on after 10 days. My Jag, fixed herself. Sick. Everyone laughed at me for buying a 1993 g including my Brit friend, but now he is even a believer. He wants my car, no way! It gets 22 on highway and 18 city. Best car I ever bought!


Best Features

Going 90 and it is holding back.


Worst Features

Going to invest in IPHONE/IPOD connection, Yea they hadn't thought about that back then.

Review

I have owned this car for 2 and a half years, in the winter it has bad acceleration and the accelerator would stick, but it handled very well on ice and snow covered roads. In the summer its a blast, the acceleration is smooth and fast, and having the windows down is enjoyable. But there's many problems, got it at 86,000 and now it has 106,000 miles. Replaced fuel pump twice, has had many times the car wouldnt start due to the battery or random reasons that fixed themselves. Also. the rear end is going on me just a bad experience


Best Features

Aerodynamics of the car, transmission, and easy handling in snow.


Worst Features

Electrical system!

Review

If you're looking for a safe, quality, comfortable vehicle this is it. Overall mine has been quite reliable with only a few wiring problems covered by warranty. The drive on it is amazing and very smooth. I was rear ended going on a highway, two other cars were smashed to pancakes mine had a bent bumper. The car is solid and it overall a good vehicle.


Best Features

Seats are like a lazyboy recliner, heated seats, sunroof, chrome mirrors.


Worst Features

CD player, 2 windshield wipers instead of 1, rear defrost never worked that well.

Review

I love it, like my wife! However, both give me problems at times. As is known, this Series 40 is better than the previous Series III (which is better looking) but still has issues, especially later in life. Mine have included flaky security system and locks, which act up in wet weather. Particularly troubling is failure of right turn signals, which required replacement of the computer $500 used, plus labor) and not the other side isn't working.The soft leather wears in the front seats, particularly at the edge where the seat belt rubs the seat. Acceleration and handling can't be beat in a car anything like this size. It's still a good value to spend some money maintaining this classic.


Best Features

LOOKS! Acceleration, comfort, handling, and the hood ornament


Worst Features

the next series (300; 95-98?) is supposed to have solved the issues with the electronics, at the expense of the rectangluar head lights.

Review

I've restored a classic 50's car, owned a couple of 60's muscle cars, owned a couple later model performance cars, plus several Japanese cars, but this Jaguar was the most fun to own and drive and it by far attracted the most attention. The repair costs are slightly higher because I always used Jaguar authorized technicians, but it was well worth it. It is a little expensive to insure if you have teenagers on your policy. Unbelieveable mid-range torque and acceleration. This used to be my everyday car, but I bought an SUV and this is now my "pleasure vehicle" as the insurance company calls it, and that actually is a good adjective for this car.


Best Features

The great acceleration when you floor it when you're already running at 45. Really flat thru the corners.


Worst Features

Resolve the major electrical drain. Battery needs charged if the car sits for a few weeks.
