How you didn't kill someone is mindboggling.
Calm down, penis eater.
wow thanks my car does the same thing when i accelerate ....it jerks...maybe i know what it is now.... lol you are brave for driving that home.
When I was a kid in the ‘70s and ‘80s, I would see the old XJ series drive by here in eastern Massachusetts, and I would stop what I was doing every time just to watch it pass. They simply screamed dignity to me, even if I didn’t know how to define it back then. I’ve been an admirer of them for my whole life, so I’m always going to tend toward saving one. If you can get one running well and reliably for less than $1500.00, I see absolutely no reason not to.
Keep her! She's beautiful
Hoovie should put an azur lane ad instead of world of warships.
I will take it off your hands for the low low price of drive it to my place in Houston and drop it off. Still kind of a bad deal for me.
You may be thinking of Jaguars of the 70's and 80's with the Lucas electronics issues. Ford totally overhauled Jags electronics in the 90's so they were at least as reliable as BMWs or MBs of the time. You were spot on with the plastic tensioners and nikasil. But if you upgrade to metal tensioners and since nikasil eating sulfur gas was eliminated in the US in the early 2000s these can power on well past 200K. I'm guessing at 252K transmission drum has been sorted too, as I understand it this wasn't as much of an issue in the Mercedes 5G found in the XJR.You can still get cheap XJ8s that are smoother than 95% of the cars on the road today and surprisingly fast XJRs. I've owned several and the only electronics issue I've had is the ABS/no traction which is just a bad solder in the ABS control module, a few hours to fix. These cars are a steal.
British Limey limping...hahahha
Hahahaa, what a car..the rear ball bearing went kaput .. imagine the wheel separates on the highway at hi speed.
Hood in verse pivot . What a design.. thats difficult to work on the radiator and cooling fan..
They are junk .. money pit junkers... stay away
Doug DeMuro influenced much???? Dont forget to say nooks and crannies very finely sir doug would be proud
The only real problem is wheel bearing. Leaks are probably not very bad.
book value is very low, MPG is really bad, probably 15 MPG highway.
Anyone gonna talk about that delorean
The Jag at 7:10 sounds like the start of a euro techno track from the early 90s.
I will buy it
I can't help but feel that this car is misrepresented in this video. By 2001 the nikasil cylinder liners were replaced with steel liners and by 2002 all of the plastic timing chain tensioners and guides were replaced with the metal units. The later x308s (2001-2003) were very reliable cars as long as the transmission was serviced properly.
The only reason the nikasil liners even caused any problems was because there was still low quality gasoline back then. Many nikasil engines are still running to this day. It's just sad that bad owners neglect to replace the timing gear and end up ruining the engines.
Long wheelbase means you glide not ride. Classic car which gives you comfort, electrical problems like mechanical can be fixed. Question is how much money needs sinking into it ?
Somebody has been messing eg stripping parts off it.Don't race it treat the old girl with a bit of respect .
Jag u wa fit in with us arr lad 🇬🇧 🇬🇧 🇬🇧 🇬🇧 🇬🇧 🇬🇧 🇬🇧 players car ⚹ 🇬🇧 a bit more to play 🇬🇧
AN AMERICAN WHO CAN PRONOUNCE JAG YOU ARRWHY DO PEOPLE CALL THEM JAGWAARS
In Europe you can sell them for 3500-7000€
