    Not a fan of Aston Martins , Jags or Bentley then? Not to mention Rolls Royce, Bristol and Landrover. Regardless of who owns them at the moment they are all build by British workers.

    I must say my Jag has been remarkably free of issues, touch wood, and it now has 180,000 miles on the clock.
