I bought this car in 1997 and car had 7500 miles. I was looking for sport car, but dealer was able to convince me to buy Jaguar. What a great choice. I still love this car even after 12 years of owning it. During this time I had 2 Mercedes and two BMW, all of which were driven by me and mostly by my wife and all of them were returned back to dealers at the end of lease. Jaguar still stays with me. At this point it's worth really nothing, but the way it drives, none of listed above could even get closer. The only non original parts on this car is rear shocks and battery. Of course filters and tires. My teenager is begging me to get another car and get him this one. He loves it too.
I bought this XJ 6 on E bay in Chicago
and drove it home, the car was
incredibly comfortable , 25 MPG on the
trip, silky smooth to drive , and a joy
to own. It had 82000 miles on it when
purchased and now has 108000 .The
battery is the only thing i have
changed, it was the original battery
from new. It is still a joy to drive. I
do preventative maintenance and take
care of scheduled service, this is my
5th Jag, I have owned Mercedes and
BMW , all were problem cars , My Jags
have been reliable and wonderfull to
drive. They are very exclusive cars.
This is the 3rd Jag I've owned(1976,
1982 and 1995) and by far it is the
best one yet. However, it still lags
in build quality and performance when
compared to the other 4 Infiniti Q45s I
have owned. The XJ6 interior is
cramped and there is something every
month that needs attention and $ to
keep it in order. The only reason I am
a glutten to this punishment is because
there is not a better looking car out
there. The car reminds me of an old
girlfriend, high maintenace but hotter
than hell good looks.
Fantastic car! Extremely reliable! Parts, except electronic modules, available at reasonable price, a lot cheaper than Japanese car's counterpart. Engine is powerful and without any drawbacks. It is a sporty family car, but not a rally type. Classical British conception and design.
