To be honest with you (I'll say this quietly, so nobody else notices) I'm looking to sell the Maverick in the not too distant future :shock2: (I've said this before and it's always if the funds will allow, but we'll see)camusdarrach said:Ordered your's then, Big Chris????Big Chris said:No no no! Tin-top all the way baby! P
With owning a V6 3.0 Maverick ( :cuss: :censor: jealous!), affording to run one of those should be easy for you!!!!! ^ :lol: :lol:
My Dad recently bought an S type 3.0 SE. 'X' reg (2001) for 10k. Not bad, i've driven it a few times. Steering is waaay light!camusdarrach said:Reutation, what reputation??? :lol:Tribby said:Tata!!! :shock2:
Of all the companys I thought it would have been sold to, tata would be last on my list.
Hope this doesn't tarnish the reputation of jaguar. It won't stop me from getting my dream car though...
Over here, Jaguars over 5 years old are worth next to nothing, you can buy them for peanuts, as the are so expensive to run and maintain, indeed, for what I paid for my Escape, would have bought me a 2 year old X or S type Jag.
Our Government uses Jaguars for the Prime Minister, and other officials, but being British, they are about 7 years old!!!!

HM the Queen has more taste, She has a Rolls Royces and a Land Rover Defender!!!!!!
I know. Like Ford are gonna cough up millions in R&D to develop a 3.0 litre engine for Jaguar, when they've already got one! :wacko:Tribby said::lol: I was on the phone to a sales person a few days back organising a test drive. He offered a test drive of the 3.0L X-Type.Big Chris said:I wind him up by telling him his S type has got the exact same engine as my Maverick!
I said "No thanks, I'm very familiar with that engine, it's in my Tribute"
He then started to get quite defensive and told me how "the two engines are are completly different, it's like comparing Apes and Humans." "We have the same basic structure as apes but are completly different, this is just like the 3.0L in the X-Type and the 3.0L in your Tribute."
I'll ask him next saturday "How can the tribute's 3.0L & the x-type's 3.0L share the same bore & stroke, the same exact displacment and the same compression ratio, yet still be completly different engines?" :box:
I'll also ask about the Ford Mondeo 2.2L Diesel engine fitted in the x-type as well :lol:
