It was as good run

After about 20 years of various Jaguar cars owned, the last one being a 2006 XJ8L, I've decided to go another direction. I traded my XJ8L for a 2015 Cadillac ATS. The ATS has about 25K miles as...

What about your battery? I got this on both my S-Type and XJ8L when the battery was on its last legs. When it's cold I got this frequently because of the voltage spikes upon first starting. It...

A bit of an academic exercise since I'm 68 and have been married for 37 years. I would place ownership of a Prius pretty down my list of desirables. Big boobs will overwrite a Prius any day:)_

I would say criminal. It certainly sounds like a scam. You may want to see if you can go to SC and pick up the car there although most likely the guy left town with the car and your money.

Hi Jon,

The MB sounds like a pretty nice ride. I assume it was not near any hurricane areas, but might be nice to confirm. Since it's a FL car most likely not AWD. In my area though, most MBs...

It's not beyond the realm of possibility. In my XJ8L I was getting 32-34 mpg at around 65 mph. The highest I saw was 35 mpg at 60 mph. However, once traffic raises its ugly head, mileage will...

Hi Jon,
