1996 Jaguar Vanden Plas Problems

The exterior door handles are of poor quality; they frequently break or do not offer enough leverage to open the door from the outside.

The rear self-leveling suspension is problematic and very expensive to repair. A retrofit kit is available to convert this suspension back to conventional shock absorbers and springs.

The upper bushings on the front shock absorbers are prone to failure and may produce a rattling/jingling noise as the car is driven over bumps.
