1994 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ12 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought the 1994 XJ12 (XJ81) because this was the only year it came in the XJ40 body style. The car seems heavy compared to the excellent XJ6 (XJ40), but the 6.0L V-12 delivers much more torque. Still, a poor trade off and the fuel consumption is hard to take. If you're a Jag guy, the car disappoints a little. If you're not a Jag guy stay far away - it will eat you out of house and home.


Best Features

Power. Interior. Ride. Sound system.


Worst Features

Balance weight front to rear. Shift-kit the transmission. Firmer ride. Fuel consumption is evil for 308HP.

Review

This car is a true classic high performance luxury sedan. It is very graceful on winding mountain roads and a real joy to drive and own.


Best Features

The 6.0L V12 is a big step up from the older 5.3. It has great power everywhere.

Review

Nice, solid car. Yes, it's had some minor service issues. After the waranty ran out(get the extended warranty!), I got sick of going to the dealer and getting raped, so I do all the little maintenance items myself now, including oil changes. Little niggling problems aside, a great car.


Best Features

Power. Performance. Luxury.


Worst Features

Better dealer support. It's fend for yourselves out there.

Review

What unbelievalbe value!! Fairly reliable. Only mechanical problems are just hoses on 7 year old car. Maintenance is expensive for the V12 but the thril of driving one is undescribalble. It is the feeling of always knowing there is power to spare. The car rarley down shifts. Fuel economy is about 14-16 mpg. Now the good stuff: Luxourous interior comparable to Bently or Rolls Royce Superb ride quality & sound system.


Best Features

Sound system
