XJS, friend or foe? by Anglophile in Alabama on 09/29/2003. Trim: 1988 Jaguar XJS Coupe, Owned 9 years.
Pros: Grace, pace and space. My wife and friends love the car. Turbine smoothness of the V-12 when it's running properly. Gives you "the feeling" when you're behind the wheel that auto enthusiasts crave.
Cons: Have owned mine for almost 10 years and have learned several things for sure. Maintenance is expensive. Electrical problems are abundant, the cars don't like humid, rainy or hot climates. I live on the Gulf Coast and park mine most of the summer. Does great in cool, dry weather. Find a trustworthy mechnic and do what you can on your own.
Overall review: Much like an abusive lover. When it's good, it's really good and when it's bad, it's awful. Did I mention it could be really good?...
