I really can’t believe it! I have owned two jaguar’s, both xj6, convertible british racing green, for 5 years each, sold one after 5 years because I couldn’t get it smogged. Loved both for 5 years.
Then I chose a simple Mazda miata, that turned out to be the bane of my life, finally burning it up! worst car I have ever owned, but this one takes the the cake!
I just paid for the new pretty silver blue, convertible jag, with 101,000 miles on it , last week. I brought my car collector investigator to check it out, he said it sounded good, I had driven it out on Hwy, and around town for about 15 minutes. . Just as I was about to drive away, I asked if it had been smogged. He said no. I said I wanted it smogged. He told me it had a new alternator, and to drive it on the highway for about 15 minutes and go up the street to this smog guy. I did, and it did not pass, he did a pre test. I brought it back, to the man and he said he would drive it home, which is an hour away, to get it warm enough to pass smog. I came back two days later, and it has the smog. I drove it the next day, no problem. I went to register it at aaa, closed for Veterans day, then yesterday I went to drive it down the hill, 3 blocks, and when the road flattened out, it showed a yellow light transmission, and it would not go forward! I tried some other gears, 2,3, 4, and it finally slooooowly went forward,. somehow, I got on the highway for about 10 minutes, and when i hit a red light, it again , barely started forward, naturally a highway patrol man , comes behind me!!! I managed to get off the highway, and reached where my other car was, to trade cars! I now have a non operating Jaguar I have paid for less than 10 days ago, it is not even registered to me yet, and it does not run! Therefore my user name:: JUSTRUN!
HAVENT THEY BEEN MAKING CARS FOR 100 YEARS? DOESN’T SOMEONE KNOW HOW TO MAKE A CAR YET? SO THEY RUN??? WHAT DO I DO? HOW EXPENSIVE IS A TRANSMISSION??? WHY ME OH LORD?
