$12K In Repairs and Still Counting
By Lee on
1998 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan
Beautiful car, great ride, wonderful handling, expensive to maintain. Between 55K and 75K miles - fuel pump, transmission, brakes, shocks, timing chain, water pump. Replaced all the plastic timing chain tension parts with new metal parts. A simple seal is $80. Same seal with my Infiniti is $15. Jag must figure if you can afford the car, then you will be willing to pay through the nose for their parts. I keep saying what else can go wrong with this car? And, something expensive always does.
Outstanding looks, ride and handling.
The mechanical quality of this car is just bad. How Jag dealers can look a person in the eye and sell them this car is amazing.
