Default New Jaguar owner

I just bought my first Jaguar. I owned Triumphs in the 70's when I was a kid, always thought the E type was the pinnacle of sports cars. I have owned other great cars like 911's, Macan, SL 500, Factory Five Cobra (very fast). Have stayed away from British cars because of their notorious reliability issues. The last TR4 I had started squirting fuel all over the engine, so I got rid of it. I currently drive a Tesla Model X, which I love.

I have been looking at the older XKRs when I found out what a bargain they are and that many of the issues of the old days are better now. They are still beautiful, so I bought a 2004 Portfolio XKR. Haven't even received it yet. I split my time between Oregon and Palm Springs, but plan to keep the Jag in California, after I register it in Oregon.

That is a short story about my love for cars. Looking forward to driving a Jaguar in he California sunshine.

Welcome to the forums PSP,

Good to have you with us.

I can see you've already found your way to the XK8/XKR forum so there's no need for a link to it from me.
The 'HOW TO' thread at the top is a good place to start for information on regular issues.

Please add vehicle details to your Signature to help others to give relevant advice. Go to the User CP button on the left of the top menu bar, then Settings & Options under Your Control Panel. Select Edit Signature and enter the details.

You can also visit the US Western Region forum by following this link
to find other members in your region.

Enjoy the forums.

I wish you success in your search.
Under Ford's ownership Jaguar made giant strides forward in the reliability field. XKRs were built during that time.
