Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Jaguar XK coupe?
The aluminium body isn't particularly hard to repair, provided the garage has the skills and correct spare parts. Be on guard for botched work, though, and anything that doesn't look like it came from the factory.
There are just a handful of things to keep an eye on. Electrics can go haywire, and batteries can flatten for no obvious reason. Other faults include the engine management light coming on, and the car's keyless entry and ignition system playing up.
The air-con and heating system can also give up the ghost, with dealers requiring replacement parts to fix the fault.
The tyres can wear quickly, and aren't cheap to replace, so check the tread depth before agreeing a price with the seller.
