Great news for Jaguar…

Jaguar has just knocked Lexus off its long held post and become #1 in customer satisfaction – Way to go JAGUAR!

Today in the shop we are going to finish fitting a new headliner to a beautiful ’98 Range Rover and repair all its water leaks from the sunroof.  Our customer wishes to stay dry.  If these major water leaks were to continue leaking into the cabin it could cause costly electronic damage.  The body controler (the main brain of the vehicle) sits under the passenger seat and doesnt take kindly to being submerged in water.  Its amazing what kind of problems a little water can cause in modern automobiles with all the sensitive electrical components.  I heard of a woman who spilled her coffee on the center console of a newer BMW and it caused in excess of $9000 in computer damage.  Wow!

We will also be trying to figure out why a Rolls Royce Corniche has failed to start and we continue to finish up our JAGUAR XK150 Restoration.

I finally got the 1985 Jaguar XJ12 sedan running after many problems. This grey market Jaguar only has 22,000 miles but sitting in storage for many years has made things difficult.  I am very thankful that I will no longer have to push this car around the shop and yard.  It seemed to always be in the way!

Hope everyone has a GREAT labor day weekend!





Our name?

Many people have wondered why we no longer use the “Don’s Jaguar Service” name. After 30 years, we have become the leading independent Jaguar and Land Rover service and restoration facility in the tri-state area, however we are very adept at providing service to all makes and models, current or classics. Now when you see a new fiat or lotus in our shop, or even a classic muscle car, you will understand. We have been “Authorized Imported Cars” for many years, but now we are fully utilizing our more appropriate corporate name.



We are happy to announce our new Blog to keep everyone updated with whats going on at Authorized Imported Cars. We will keep you posted with everything JAGUAR and LAND ROVER related as well as all other imported car or collector car happenings in the shop. At the moment we have many XKE and Jaguar XK, as well as several JAGUAR SALOON cars in our shop. Stop by and take a look – You are always welcome!
