In the 10 years I have owned this car I have had no repairs at all. A battery, two front shocks, and a set of tires are all I have put into it. It has not been to a dealer at all in ten years. It is garaged and I use it almost exclusively with top down, which is frequent here in Florida. I have thought about a new one, but this style is too outstanding!

This cat is a beauty!! The lines of the car are timeless, attracting attention wherever it goes. The design of the new generation convertible Jaguars can't hold a candle to these classic coach made works of art. Mechanically the car is pretty sound, but problems with the interior electrical & lighting has been frustrating. I can overlook that setback in the daytime, but at night when you need lighting to enter and egress the car it can be frustrating.

Have had this car for about four
years. Bought from friend with 15,000
miles on it. I love the car...I have
always been a british automobile
fan...and it turns heads. Live in East
Tennessee and it takes the
mountain and back roads well...a
little soft compared to the SAAB
Turbo I had before this but more
comfortable. But the stupid little
things that break like door handles
and power motors are annoying, And
it is a very expensive car to maintain.
Example...the door handles have
heat sensors to keep the locks from
freezing which makes them almost
$600 to replace. However the engine
and powertrain have been problem
A passenger airbag joins the safety equipment roster. CFC-free air conditioning is added to the standard equipment list. For the XJS, a five-speed manual transmission is available as a new option for the 4.0-liter inline-six engine. An XJR-S derived XJ-S 6.0-liter V12 is available, they are differentiated by a rear spoiler, mirrors, grille and alloy wheels. The XJ-12 is available with a 301-horsepower engine and a four-speed automatic transmission.
