Nice cars! Best engine. Best transmission. Lots of features. Do your homework. There is a ton of info on this forum. Take advantage of it. My advice, have a pro look at any potential purchases BEFORE you buy. Make sure EVERYTHING works (it won't) and use any issues to negotiate a better price. These are actually quite reliable, but nearly all of the parts needed to remedy the "normal" issues are only available through Jaguar, and are very pricey. For example: You hear a knocking noise over small irregular surfaces. Sounds like the front suspension. Typical issue. Needs strut bushings. $255 each X 2 from my local dealer, and several hundred to install. See what I mean?? It pays to be picky here.
