Least reliable car I ever owned
By worst car ever on
1998 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan
At 53,000 miles my engine failed $12,000 replacement. Jaguar offered no help, said my case was rare, but 6 mechanics said engine failures were common because of timing chain failures in engines from 1998-2002. 3 water pump failures (plastic parts). Transmission failed at 98,000. This car had 8 mechanical break downs. Maintence was $27,000. Plastic used where metal was needed.
Interior and exterior styling. Comfort, and power.
Build a car that reflects its cost, develop integrity, and support owners who are likely to have problems with you cars.,
