VERY reliable cars.? There is no concern there.
Four months ago I?got a?2004?XJ8 (not an R or a XK) with 66k on the clock for
$14,500.?? This is the current model Jaguar is trying to get $70k for.
So I guess all I'm saying is, while $22k for a an XKR looks attractive, it
might be high for a convertible?and for a coupe its DEFINATELY high.?
Buying at the dealer:? AFAIK the?only?benefit?may be?the warranty.?
Non-franchised dealers aren't exactly awash in these cars, but the dealer
charges a heavy premium for the "certified pre-owned" warranty.? See what is
covers, and see the repair history on the car.? If the car has never had ball
joints and brakes, for example, and the warranty doesn't cover ball joints and
brakes paying extra for the warranty might not be attractive because you may
soon be shelling out for a non warranty repair.? Fears of engine blow ups and
failed transmissions etc which most of these warranties cover are really
unfounded on a under100k car.

Subject: [Mgs] Jaguar Question
I know it's off topic and I don't even own an ascot, but our local Jag
dealer has been advertising deals that look attractive for XK8 and XKR models.
Currently has a 2003 XKR with 50K miles for $22,000.
I've got to say I'm tempted. Anyone have any experience with these models
and their reliability?

perched prominently on top of the intake manifold, aching for experienced
the small knurled caps of the oil dampeners begging to be inspected and
described in chapter seven of the Haynes shop manual.
