    For that kind of mileage you should really be looking for a petrol one.

    For that sort of mileage he should be looking at a bicycle.

    Once you buy a Jag I bet you'll be doing a few more miles than that Whatever your milage just change the oil and filter twice per year. For that price just buy it and think of it as a nice project. They are quite easy cars to fix.

    Don't touch a diesel with a bargepole; they're slow, noisy, unreliable, polluting, and not even especially economical. Go for a 3.0 litre petrol one, doing all the usual car buying checks, look for some history, or at least caring and competent DIY maintenance, paying particular attention to the 4WD system. For your budget, you should be able to find a really nice example, manual or Auto, with a decent specification. Buy a good one and you'll be addicted to Jags forever.

    NO humour intended. If you're only going to be doing 500 miles per annum why would you bother with all the expense and grief of running an old car?

    Because I am fed up with citroen picasso,also my eldest has an XJ 3,2 ltr
    I think 3.2 is to much of a gas guzzler,and I would lik a little comfort in old age.
    the 80 gives it away,still like your sence of humour.
    regards

    Surely, if you do only 500 miles per annum, fuel consumption is of no consequence. If you just run around locally, almost nothing will better 20 mpg, and so what? £3.00 per week for fuel. If you bought a series 1 XJ12, which will do around 10 mpg under such circumstances, your fuel cost would still only be £6.00 weekly.

  10. Thanks tonymike80 thanked for this post

    My Dad is well into his 80s and still enjoys driving. Unfortunately I've so far been unable to get him out of a Merc and into a Jaguar. Even worse my mother, also in her 80s drives a Skoda

    Happy Days
