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!
The long hood design or style of the car. Almost every time I drive into town, someone in traffic or a parking lot will compliment this car.
Better gas mileage, and use regular gas would be nice. Also, it would be nice if the mechanical arms of the convertible top would go down further out of sight. Looks OK with the boot on but still is up too high.
Bought the car late winter this yr. Car was idle about 5 yrs. So problems were expected. So far I have repaired the AC blower motor - 1.29 part, hell to get installed. Rebuilt R/Pinion and tie rod ends, new battery, new tires, front brake rotors and pads, new roof. Had problems with electrical relays but fixed with no parts. Now the front drivers seat will not recline (bad motor) - this car is becoming a quest
Style. performance, All out luxury. turns heads and now cheap Collector car insurance. All and all not sorry
Too late to improve discontinued this model in 96 . "Love the one your with"
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.
Design & styling!!! Awesome smooth ride, beautiful burlwood interior, love the glass rear window, original Jaguar sound system is amazing.
A little more pick up would be great, other than that I have no suggestions.
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
Overall Design...wide and low and
not a cupholder to be seen. Good
visibility for a convertible.
Electronics which the company
continues to improve.
