Year: 2004
Color: Black
Transmission: V8 Automatic

At This time, I am saddened that I have to get a divorce from my favorite vehicle that I ever owned! My wallet at this time of COVID-19 can no longer afford to repair my Jaguar.

(Also Willing to Barter! Make an offer..... I don't bite...)
In August of 2019, I took my Jaguar to Mr. Transmission to find out why my air ride suspension was not lifting my vehicle properly. I had not driven it in 6 months, so I purchased a new battery and put it in the hands of the pros. Prior to testing the air ride suspension, the mechanics noticed that the vehicle was having a hard time starting, instead of cutting corners, I purchased a brand new fuel pump($865.00). After purchasing 3 used air compressors for the air ride suspension that didn't work, I purchased a brand new one from Jaguar($857.00). The thought was, this was the day I would take the Jaguar home. The mechanic started the vehicle after installing the new equipment, and boom! The left rear air bag was not holding air and the front right air bag was not even raising up.
Disappointed, I asked how much more would it cost to fix those issues. The quote was $1599.00 to replace the two air bags or $1999 to totally remove the air ride suspension and replace it with regular shocks and struts. There was only one option as the wife will not drive the Jaguar without the air ride suspension, and after being laid off due to this pandemic, I could not afford to sink $2,000.00 MORE DOLLARS into my beloved Jaguar. So, My lack of funds is your gain! I have to either trade or sell my Jaguar and cut my losses.
