Hello All. I am planning to buy a XJ6 serie 2 or 3. I do not have any experience with Jaguar.
What do you can warn me to take care during the acquisition? Is engine 2.8
reliable? How can I know the difference between 2.8 and 4.2 motors? Is it
visible? I am planning to use this car only on weekends and I was thinking in
one mechanical (not hidramatic). 

What are the key points that I should check? I´d like to know if 2.8 motor has a
good performance or not. 

Thanks a lot for your help and attention.

Welcome to the Club, Luiz.


I am not an expert but I can tell you that the Jaguar XJ is a very good, iconic car.


Personally I would go for the 4.2 Litre engine which was used by Jaguar into the 21st Century and was the power source for the S Type R and the XKR for years.


Just buy it, get in and enjoy the Jaguar experience
