I had one of these back in the day and have regretted selling it for 15 years. The car is long and sexy, even after 20+ years since the last was produced. The inline 6 is a steady power plant that wont leave you wanting. The interior is everything youd expect from Jaguar luxury. The wood on the dash is amazing.

An Inexpensive Car Which Makes A Statement. — There only thing I wish the car has was lower end torque. Love the looks. Great long distance touring. For it's size and weight. MPG on the highway is ok 25+. These cars turns heads where ever you go. They are timeless. Most people who don't know Jags think it's only a few years old not 17.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cost, Style, Reliability. Fun factor and comfort

Cons: Body parts are becoming hard to find.

Still Driven After All These Years... — I bought this car out of Texas as a second owner in 2000 and drove it for three years. I sold it to a friend that has a repair shop as a loaner car. It is still used albeit sparingly anymore in that capacity today. Great Jaguar sedan, one of many I have owned and love the way they drive. Mechanical quality is great, but minor issues such as headliner sag and electric switches that break are black marks on an otherwise exceptional auto.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Still being used daily by current owner, a testiment to build quality Jaguar received from Ford during their ownership.

Cons: Niggly electric issues with seat switches, headliner sag.

Very Big And Comfy Car — Jags don't come any bigger than this one. Inside it's like a house lots of leather and room for your legs and that bottle of bubbly. Performance is hard to describe as it all depends on the engine you have and how heavy you press the gas pedal. It's very comfortable handles well and looks great.

Pros: Big comfy saloon

Cons: very hungry for fuel

If You Want The Ultimate Affordable Luxury Car, This Is Your Car. —

We love our XJ6 Vanden Plas! The quality of materials is exceptional. Soft, supple Connoley leather everywhere. Gorgeous Burled Walnut and chrome. Comfortable front seats and back seats as comfortable as the nicest sofa you've ever sat on! The exterior can only be described as BEAUTIFUL! Jaguar's classic styling, curves in all the right places, shiny chrome accents - you know it's a Jaguar! Our Big Cat has a luxury car ride, but flip the sport switch and the suspension stiffens nicely. Engine has adequate power and the transmission feels good. Stereo system is surprisingly very nice. Steering feels a little vague, but the car goes where you point it. Corners very well for a big car. A little hard to park - this car is long! We've encountered minor problems such as the self dimming mirror, the power seat memory, the console cup holder and the wood steering wheel cracking. Gas mileage is okay (average 20 mpg). Maintenance has been minimal and we have 76K miles on her now. In fact, we're shocked at how reliable both Jaguars have been (we owned a 1992 XJ6 Sovereign a few years ago). Ever time I drive our Big Cat, it makes me smile! This is what a luxury car is suppose to do.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: LUXURY, LUXURY, LUXURY

Cons: Gas mileage and size (very long)
