been looking for a yr. have had sound advise and gained much from this site, which is fabulous resource.
Bought 99 silver / black GTS manual, 18,500 miles. 3 owners from Methany imports, Jag / LR dealer in Jacksonville. FL USA.
Basically car was not driven for at least 6 months, belt change feb 2011, and spoke to garage mechanic 'trained at factory'.
Car finally arrived yesterday.
Misfire on at least 2 cylinders.
Oil extremely dirty and low
Indicators not working
Fuel filler cap not working - duck taped on after they filled up car.
Took straight to my mechanic, who services everything in LA from F50 to E types, he couldn't believe they delivered a car in this mechanical condition and spent a day and did OBD test etc. couldn't find cause of fault, so going back Monday. Not spark plugs, prob injectors or fuel pump and prob contaminated fuel.
Any suggested recourse for extremely dishonest dealer and salesman??
Have stopped Amex deposit already.
What's the best oil & coolant for hot temps here on west coast?
Car needs a bit of TLC, shrinkage on dash and airbag.
AC panel replace - which is easy I read.
Apart from the thorough disappointment from the dealer, the car looks great and handles v well.
Needs exhaust and will remove CATS
Add clear indicators too.
All suggestions greatly appreciated.
