My first Jaguar ownership experience evolved into something very pleasant despite a shaky start with the '98. The water pump failed after the first month. That was followed by a couple of fuel sending unit issues and an ABS module failure. Even so, I drove this car for a little over two years, adding 44,000 miles to the odometer, all of which were smooth, comfortable, and quiet. There is something about a Jaguar that makes me smile, which I did in spite of the issues right up until I handed over the keys.
