I own a 2001 S Type 4.0 and have not had one single problem in 25,000 miles.Wonderful car! This was my second Jag after I purchased a 2000 S Type 3.0 and almost went Lemon Law after having an unusual amount of problems...Jaguar replaced my car and made me a customer for life. And despite what I have read about pre-1994 XJ40 sedans I went and purchased a 1991 Jade Green Sovereign. OK everyone, stop the whispering...I am not crazy- as a matter of fact..I Love this car! It has personality, ride is superb,everything works and it still turns heads do to its classic lines. And it doesn't have to cost a fortune to fix if you spend the time and LOOK for parts online at the many web sites geared towards the Jaguar owner.I have had good experiences with Coventry West in Georgia..very helpful. Oh, and make sure you have a mechanic you can trust. I take this baby up to 90 on the Florida Turnpike and I don't feel a single vibration. I also recommend Pirelli P4000 tires. The Bridgestone Turanza tires on my S Type are garbage. I like reading the stuff you folks write...its nice to know I'm not alone out there when I get accused of loving my cars more than my spouse!!!
I'm down in Ft.Lauderdale, originally from upstate NY...I was lucky to find a 91 that was an actual Palm Beach car, garaged and no fade or sun bleaching and PERFECT chrome all around- and the windows have only factory tint.
Another note: I strongly recommend Maguires Scratch X to remove small scratches and even fade on older cars...my buddy has an older red Porsche and this stuff is amazing at feeding the paint and bring back the shine...its in a tube and I got it at Pep Boys.
Can anyone tell me what names Jaguar used for the interior and exterior colors of my 95 XJ6? To me the exterior is black, the interior tan. The following codes are listed on the door panel plate: Paint= PDT Trim = SDC.
