That statement actually has some bearing because during this time period Ford owned Jaguar.
Correct...? Ford took over Jaguar....however they still rolled of the assembly line of Jaguar...difference..yes indeed...
Ford Motor Company...is a Good Product....and it is well known that Jaguar has had issues.. with Quality & Control....however once the issues are corrected has per written by Jaguar....the Cars are bullet proof....AJ6 Motors are some of the best...the trans are still built and being used in todays cars..mostly the Audi's
As a owner of previous Jags...i can tell you from experience that most problems are electrical....and most problems are just a simple connection.
sad indeed now that Jaguar is owned and operated by Tata Motors of india....would i buy a New Jag today...No....Aston Martin comes to mind...then again the history of the Aston...well Todays Jaguars come to mind..
Since i am a little confused and that you seem yo poo po Ford...and Jaguar....Just thought i would give you a little friendly up-date..
Sure a Ford....you can take the weekends off and not do repairs....has with a Jag...well that is the fun of owning a one....Sure you will have to mortgage you home for the cost of repairs on a Jaguar....so i advise people if you have no DIY experience..stay away...and buy a Compact....But if truly want something Sleek and Sexy and cannot afford a Ferrari....Buy a Jag....
Cheers and Happy Holidays to ya...Don
