1996 Jaguar XJ-Series Sedan XJ6 4dr Sedan


Review

Owned now for 4 years, found it on local Craigslist wanted 6K, got it 4.5K. Mint body (9+), Int 8, new tires, subwoofer. Engine compartment look new. Had a few issues mechanically-wheel bearings, frozen brake caliper. Put 2K into it, rebuilt throttle body + previous mentioned. Cant beat the looks, performance. Really where can you get this for <7K today & 3 years from collector plates ;)


Best Features

Rims & tire size, supercharger, stereo, wooden steering wheel.


Worst Features

Quad exhaust set-up, customized mine, looks great stainless mufflers, Porsche tips.

Review

This Jaguar was the best car I have owned all the luxury but when it came to Jaguar it was the best and smoothest ride once in awhile a few minor problems occur like door locks but a easy fix and well worth for this xj6! All the bells and whistles


Best Features

key and cruise control traction control sport shifter


Worst Features

In the future jaguar should make it so it doesn't occur with these electrical problems

Review

I have always thought about owning a Jaguar and I am glad that I made the choice on my 96 XJ6. Overall the car is great. Great ride, great looks and has been reliable. It gets looks and has a nice big car feel without feeling heavy. Extremely good gas mileage! My wife not being a "car" person loves it as well.


Best Features

Styling, Classic Looks, Wood, Quiet Ride, Comfort.


Worst Features

Better Headliner.

Review

I have owned Volvos, Buicks, and three BMW 5ers. Now, an XJ6. These cars are generally exceptional on reliability and, treated properly, will give you 200k miles on the original short block & transmission. They cars truly define aesthetic elegance; they are unique head-turners anywhere you go. Our XJ6 is very quick and light-feeling; it corners well with very little body lean and the steering, while not as stiff as a BMW, is precise and gives just enough feedback from the road. Because of my positive experience with our XJ6, I am endeavouring to buy another '96-'97 XJ, a Vanden Plas. Take advantage of the fantastic reliability & durability inthe '96-'97s!


Best Features

Aesthetics, sporty but never-harsh ride, rock-solid Jag I-6, comfortable seats,general quality & refinement that surpasses my (newer!) BMWs.


Worst Features

Better stock stereo. That's about it. This car doesn't have much room for improvement.

Review

I am continually amazed at what a good car this has been. My cat has been extremely reliable and still is with 113,000 miles on the odometer. I plan to put at least another 75k on it, and then maybe get a xk8. The suspension is stiff (the way I like it, in sport mode on the transmission the car gets up and goes, and it takes corners fairly well for a luxury sedan.


Best Features

Best looking car in the world with an interior that constantly pleases the eye, power.


Worst Features

Not sure what that would be.
