Pros: "Exterior design, interior, ride, power, all tops"

Cons: "Plastic cam tensioners & water pump - replace!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"If you swap out the plastic timing chain tensioners and water pump with metal factory replacements, this car's biggest problem areas will disappear. My 2001 XJR has 124k miles on the clock and remains reliable. It's superior-quality paint and leather are holding up well, keeping the car fresh. It remains structurally tight and drives nearly as new. The engine requires only 1 quart of oil (synthetic) between 10k mile changes. My only concern is the transmission, a 5-speed ZF unit known to fail beyond 80k miles. My shop, Continental Imports in Oakland CA, is trying to preserve it by changing the fluid and filters every 15,000 miles. But even if I need to fork over $5k for a rebuilt transmission, the car is such a bargain, I'll still be dollars ahead."
