Bought used in 2012 for only few thousand.I know already i have lots to do on this car.Exactly invested $8,500 for put the car as original spec's,complete electric,suspension,and few cosmetic things.Now with 140,000 kilos for a 20 years old car.Car is almost new in and out.But electric system on this car is really one of is bad side.Parking light specially.

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.


Favorite Features

Power. Interior. Ride. Sound system.


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

I bought this car last October. I had to change the oil pump, it was expensive. Not only was repair very expensive the local Jag dealer had it for 2 months because they really didn't know how to deal with this car. But to the dealerships credit I have not had a problem since the repair. My only advice is if you buy this car--remember its a keeper --not for future trade ( much less value than when you purchase it)


Favorite Features

Nice look , nice ride


Suggested Improvements

cheaper repair for older cars! gas milage-gets the same as my suburban

Review

Pretty, great ride, great value for the money. You can easily get a VERY nice low mileage 94 XJ6 for under $7,000, so why buy a newer, but uninteresting Ford or Saturn when you can have a fun, reliable Jag for less price. Yes, parts and service cost more, but not a lot more. I've had 4 Jags now and the drivetrain systems are usually strong and reliable. With these cars it's typically the electrics or some nit-picky thing that goes bad. Keep it garaged and maintained, buy the latest model you can afford (build quality and reliability for the sedan is best from 1990 and up), and it should return the favor. 1994 was the last year for the more angular, European styling, a personal favorite.


Favorite Features

Looks, a pleasure to drive, drivetrain reliability, comfortable cabin, calming interior and ride (a nice plus these days), and satisfying to glance back at as you leave the car. Also, I can drive for weeks in a sea of Mercedes and BMW's (and the usual Honda and Toyota) and never see another Jag.


Suggested Improvements

1994 model has no glove compartment, and battery is in the trunk which wrecks the sheet metal and stinks the trunk up a bit. Rear leg space is minimal. Some build quality is lacking in the fitting of parts. Cup holders can easily break. Some more easily breakable plastic knobs around the cabin.

Review

I recently purchased the 1994 XJ6 3 months ago and already I have had to spend ever $5,000 to fix mechanical problems. Wood trim is cheap and cracks easily.
