A pleasure to drive, It feels as though I am wearing it rather than sitting in it. Performance and handling is fantastic and the auto box is silky smooth. I am getting about 30MPG on average on Shell V Power.
It provides a sense of occassion on every trip, if you had'nt guessed already I love driving it and it hasn't cost a fortune to run.

A long, proud heritage of British automotive style, performance and prestige for under £5000. There is a sense of occasion whenever I get into it, and a lasting memory of power, finesse and style whenever I park it and walk away. You cannot get more car for less money on the secondhand market - provided you shop wisely.

If unused for 3 or 4 weeks battery voltage can drop and cause spurious warnings. electric handbrake is slow to release. Car is just as economical as our mercedes a class blue efficiency on cross country runs achieving up to 33mpglast service labour was ł132 per hr - too high.

The car has never faltered while in my ownership. Apart from expendables (tyres, wipers, plugs etc) the only repair that has been necessary was the replacement of the rear shock absorbers.

An elegant, refined machine which meets all of my needs. This car will never leave me. Keep all of your later, more sophisticated machines, this is a truly stylish lady.

Very good reliability with only standard servicing required. Highest wear factor are tyres. steady mpg fuel consumption for a jaguar of this performance level.
