Well what I can I say, the car is beautiful both inside and out. No matter where you go you will get questioned on the car. A true head turner and stnads out from all the other cookie cutter luxuary cars in the parking lot. The XJS coupes are the best because of the sleak lines, curves and styling; and when this cat runs it beats anything on the road that is 20 years younger. Like I said, it's Jag so there is maintenance. If are someone who likes to just turn the key and drive, get a Honda, you will be much better off. You to understand Jaguars to own this car, nothing like the XJ's, S-types, and X-types. You need to maintain it or it willl bite you hard with costly repairs. The most important thing is to ensure all components of the colling system are clean and in top notch running condition, if you invest in anything invest in the cooling system. If the engine runs hot, well it's done! Other electronic gremlins and issues arise also but nothing that has a major effect on the performance of the car. As large as the car looks it is delicate both inside and out. Do not abuse the car, things will break. It is a sports touring car not a car you can beat up as a daily driver. The V-12 engine is powerful and was ahead of it's time. It rivals a lot of the cars on the road today but the cost is 14 MPG of premium gasoline. Ouch! Do not use regular or this cat will cough up a nice hair ball. Take care of the car and will take care of you. Reliable? Yes, you only get out of it what you put into it.
