1988 Jaguar XJ-SeriesReview
Eric writes:

To be perfectly honest, the 1988 XJ40 Jaguar XJ6 had some issues in its first two years - from the smaller engine to the digital dashboard and even those dreaded seatbelts... The car looked and drove nicely, but they didnt fully sort the car out until they added the larger engine (4-liter) and revised the dashboard to analog gauges... The quality was much better from 1992 to 1994 (when they even offerd the 6-liter V12)... However, the 1995 through 1997 (X300) are arguably the best of the XJ6s and XJ12s (especially long-wheelbase models 96/97, until 1998, when they switched to the new V8 and newly-updated interiors... The V8 had some timing-chain guide issues and cylinder-liner issues until 2001... but they are very refined and powerful.
