    My car

    My new XJ6 TDV has spend weeks in the workshop - the car did not start and they say after nine days there (this is second visit for the fault) that they know what the fault is and do not know yet how they can fix it.

    They say they also have other cars with the same fault. No one seems to be able to do anything and the response from dealer and Jaguar is worse than zero. I wish I had never seen the car, as I have no faith in the ability of the car to do what it was purchased for.

    If they do not know how to sort it, where does that leave the customer?

    My car

    After test driving the german opposition I was delighted to find this home grown vehicle matched or beat them almost all of the time.

    The car stands out against the run of the mill opposition.

    Well done Jaguar a great machine, and great driving sensation.

    My car

    Ran the car for 8 months and did 20,000 miles including a memorable 460 mile trip to Ullapool, averaging 70mph and 31mpg; just did it one one tank!

    Utterly world class in almost every respect: ride and handling, cabin quality, image and impact (the wow factor), and running costs in particular. It is however very big and parking sensors are a must. I had them on the back but not the front; front one's would be useful because you can't easily judge the front length.

    My only negative thought concerns the grill; it doesn't work whilst the rest of the car is beautiful. Final thoughts: the 3.0-litre is really quite fast in Sport Mode and a head-up display would be useful with all those gadgets to control.
