1996 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan

Review

I'm very pleased to say that my gorgeous big cat is still running well. In fact, the only thing I've done is a few oil changes. I've put nearly 40,000 miles on her and she's been great. She came with Toyo tires that still have 40% left on them. Still on the same brakes as well. Rear axle has been leaking since I got her (can smell the diff oil), but no problems. Front left wheel bearing still makes the same noise. Gas mileage is pretty good on the freeway 24 mpg at 80 mph. City mpg isn't so good. I've received as many compliments on her as my Porsche Boxster and 911. When I drive people they comment on how nice a ride she has. I didn't think I would say it, but I love this car. An absolutely beautiful luxury car that makes me proud to own her.

Favorite Features

Reliability has been phenomenal for a European Luxury Car. Material are tops - better than my 540 or E class. Amazing in the rain. Tire wear is unbelievable - I may get 60K miles on them.
