That is sounding more and more like my experience in the XJL, only I had to have the whole rail replaced, not just the injectors. I hope your experience is less painful and less expensive than was...

Sounds exactly like what happened with my 2011 XJL Supercharged. Hit the gas hard going up hill and blew the injectors on the driver's side. Got misfire codes on cylinders 2, 4, 6, and 8.

I just activated a two-month free trial the other day without any problem whatsoever. Other than the sound quality of Sirius-XM is rather poor in my XKR. The sound falls somewhere between AM radio...

Just don't try it on a week day, or after 4:00AM, or before midnight, or pretty much any other time. When I lived in NoVA, that was basically a circular parking lot. Now the Dulles toll road on a...

The concept of "luxury" extends beyond the cabin of an automobile. I would not consider being constrained to 220 miles on a full charge to be a luxury by any definition. Having to plug my vehicle in...

I guess all this chatter about CO2 being the cause of man made global warming is just so much rubbish. One would think if CO2 levels were bad enough to influence the global climate that it couldn't...

Jeremy Clarkson quotes some data from the "Dust to Dust: The Energy Cost of New Vehicles From Concept to Disposal" study, but their track experiment seems interesting.

For me, the XKR has a presence that very few (read Aston Martin) cars can sustain. Now in my mid-50s, I wouldn't have a Corvette as a gift. It seems like a childish car for a grown man to own. The...

Sometimes I forget

Four months ago, I purchased a 2011 XKR to go with my 2011 XJL/SC. I've been using the XKR as my daily driver for most of that time, relegating the XJL to longer road trips, as the XKR is just too...

I'm confused. Step 2 says "do not start the engine", but step 8 says to turn the ignition off. Is there a step missing?

Edit: Never mind. I mistook "ignition" for implying that the motor was...
