Classic car at its best.

by from Springfield, OH on September 20, 2017

Smoothest drive I ever experienced. Power is delivered firmly to the wheels and it handles extremely well. Love to feel the pickup from the straight 6 double overhead cam engine.

I am the second owner of a great example of a very rare 1995 Convertible 2+2 V12 and it has been a wonderful experience. I agree with other reviewers that the styling lines are fantastic and the reliability has been outstanding. The only drawback has been finding official Jag parts to ensure the credibility of this classic is maintained. I believe these cars will trend in collectibility just as the E-type, but not necessarily at the same momentum. The fact that Ford poured so much money into the last years of this model to make substantial improvements knowing they were going to build the XK very soon is rare. If you have an opportunity to purchase a good example, do so and hold on to it....you won't be disappointed.

I had a 95 Coupe that I (sadly) had to sell a few years back. I have been looking for a good deal on another one ever since. I would only consider a 95 or 96 for this car. Build quality seemed far superior to older cars. My XJS was more reliable than any BMW or Audi I have owned (7 of them). I had a coil pack split, but otherwise did not have any unexpected issues.

I have had this 1995 XJS Jaguar convertible since 2007 in SoCal (L.A.) and I drop the top and I don't even care about all the traffic. I just go with the flow. Like others here, I get lots of looks, compliments, and offers to buy it from me. In a city full of $100,000-200,000+ cars everywhere, this Jag holds its own looks wise. I'm moving overseas and can't take it with me so I will cry when someone pulls it out of my driveway, but so be it. Someone else will get to enjoy this car like I did. I put over 60,000 miles on the car and enjoyed every mile. For the money, this car is a bargain. It has some of the old school Jaguar styling. Great car!

Jaguar and reliable are two words not often heard together . Well I am happy to report that when talking about the 1995 XJS, reliable is one of many of this up and coming collectibles attributes. I have owned my 1995 XJS for 4 years now and it just keeps exceeding my expectations and man what a sexy car. I cannot go anywhere without having people tell me what a great looking car it is. The interior is a mix of old British charm and beautiful wood and leather. The revised round gauges are easy to read and work flawlessly. The 4.0L AJ16 power plant is powerful, smooth and quiet and I can get 25 to 30 MPG on the highway. Driving the 1995 XJS just makes you feel special and I find the convertible to have very little air turbulence with the top down. The ride is sublime and it corners like a dream. Jaguar got it right at the end of the run. If you find a great example of this timeless classic all I can say is do yourself a big favor and buy it. Get one before this one gets out of reach like so many other classic Jags have before it.

Great looking Classic lines!

Great car! Reliable with only regular service required....parts (brakes, oil filter, light bulbs) are surprisingly cheap at Advance Auto or NAPA. Every-time I drive the vehicle it gets compliments.......

We have owned this classic beauty for almost a year. I must admit. as a female, I never understood a guys attachment to his vehicle BUT I KNOW NOW!!! This car is MY baby! We get comments every time we drive it and even some offers to purchase it. But I will own and enjoy this classis until I am too old to drive anymore. The grandkids say "ccol car " and I agree. We have taken it on back roads at 125 mph and it handles and rides like doing 75. and still has power to give. I don't understand owners of this 16 year old car who have low mileage. It was built to be driven and enjoyed.

I love the styling and mystique associated with the Jaguar V12 engine. This is an incredible value. Exotic looks, V12 performance, great ride, excellent handling with minor upgrades and very reliable if you know what to look for and what to service when. It isn't an amorphic blob, isn't Asian, has real bumpers and grill, doesn't require 18" plus wheels and doesn't get lost in a parking lot.

If you wanna be happy

Nothing on the road looks better than the XJS in my opinion. I love the lines of this car. There's plenty of pep in this simple in-line six. 237 horsepower gets the job done nicely but it's definitely not a muscle car. Acceleration and handling on the freeway or through the canyons is agile and quick. No over heating issues when stuck in city traffic. No electrical issues like the older than this jags had. The '95-96 model of this car is a workhorse. This kitty purrs smoothly going 35 or 85. Happy to say I'm getting very good gas mileage. It's so comfortable. No drivers fatigue when cruising in this cat. The XJS has gorgeous lines and a wonderful "spirit" that means a lot to me. It did take a few hours to get used to the gas and brake pedals being a bit closer to each other than I was used to initially, but that was a quick adjustment. The top has been problem free. It smoothly goes up and down with a push of a button and it's quiet and rattle free with the top up. The rear glass window with defroster makes you forget about it being a convertible at times. No real visibility problems, which I noticed in the newer XK8. (I like the lines of the XJS much better anyway). Great factory sound system! AC blows icy cold. You don't see very many of these on the road and that's fine with me. I've owned five jags, so I get the fact that they're not going to be as simple or inexpensive to maintain as say a honda, but considering the style, weight and ride... they're worth it. I've replaced a few window switches and a brake sensor. That's it. Getting parts might be tricky down the road, though... Still, there's not a lot of complicated unnecessary bells and whistles to go wrong with on this model, but it's always a good idea to know a reputable and experienced jaguar mechanic before buying any model jag if you're not one yourself. Although it's not my only car, I haven't wanted or needed to drive anything else since buying this sixteen year old classic. Decent sized trunk, but of course, the backseat is, like a porsche's, a joke for anything much more than a couple bags of groceries and a coat and cap. You would not want to sit in the back. I can't believe how little it cost to buy this beautiful, solid, classic ride that was over sixty grand brand new. Worth every penny. I sometimes hate to close the garage door and stop seeing it. This car makes me happy.
