english quality sucks


Beauty On 4 Wheels — design, design,design and a nice 4 litre v8. the best looking car on the road since unbeatable e-type. drives like a dream, but has quirky english pain-in-the-neck problems

Great looking, easy top down, comfortable, great mileage (22-25mpg) for a big V8 sports car, great trunk space (two full sets of golf clubs plus enough luggage room for a week trip).


I am surprised the value of the car has not held very well.  New it was $75,000 and now it is shown to have a $12,750 value.


Great Sporty Luxury Convertible — Easy to drive, nice looking, lots of luggage space, great mileage, good overall value if you are not the first owner, $75,000 car new that lost 50% of its value in 3 years. Fantastic value for the next owners as the car can give great service for over 100,000 miles and not likely loose much in value.

Primary Use: Family transportation
