Covering all engine and body configurations, this book shows what to look for, what to avoid and whether the car is likely to suit your needs, plus relative values and the best places to buy. Also includes full details on back-up organizations and literature. SynopsisPerhaps because it was Jaguar?s longest-running model ever, there are not only lots of examples of the XJ-S around, there are lots of terrible specimens to trap the unwary. With the youngest car now over ten years old, most XJ-S cars have long since dropped out of the dealer network and good examples are climbing in price but need to be sifted out from amongst the poor examples ? often superficially dressed to sell. This book takes the fear out of buying one of these quick complex cars, by providing a checklist for common problem areas, followed by the core section taking readers methodically through each system in detail and scoring them to arrive at an objective numerical assessment of the car?s condition to support a decision to buy or walk away. Short of employing an XJ-S expert to do the inspection for you, there is no safer way to avoid buying a bad car and end up with the vehicle of your dreams that lives up to expectations rather than becoming a money pit for the unwary.
