1997 Jaguar Vanden Plas ProblemsExterior Door Handles May Break
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 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.
To avoid excess play and wear problems, the front wheel bearings should be periodically inspected and serviced.
