I’m buying a 2012 XKR, however the top only raises 7-8

Customer Question
I’m buying a...

I’m buying a 2012 XKR, however the top only raises 7-8 inches after releasing. It will not retract only hovers over the windshield. The seller is telling me it’s a $500 motor and has offered to give me cash... I’m abit Leary of giving a dealer $45K for a car with a top that doesn’t work. What kind of cash would a top repair run?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

19,750 miles, 2012 Jaguar XKR Automatic Electronic Tranmission w/ Paddle Shift on steering wheel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XKR yourself? What have you tried so far?

Going to pay for it tomorrow. I haven’t bought it yet...

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Are Jaguar warranty’s transfered to the new buyer of a vehicle?

if you are spending 45k for this car, make them fix it and have it in proper working order before accepting the car. do not buy it based on someone else observation.
