I'm actually not surprised to see Buick make a "most reliable" list, but Jaguar? Jags have always been at the very bottom of all such lists.

And it's also kind of sad that this study (and Jaguar's triumph) has been released AFTER Ford sold the brand.

You're right about being surprised about Jag being at the top of the list with Buick, I can remember when you could buy a Jag with a Chevy 327, the engines made by Jag were so unreliable people didn't want them.

Were they actually sold new like that?

I have heard that a lot of do-it-yourself-types land up swapping their original Jaguar engines for Chevy small blocks.
