Just noticed it has paint/rust issues above the windshield. BLah! Any easy fix for this? Can you sand it, paint it, and cover it up with something cool/useful?
That XK is from Michigan which is in the heart of the rust belt & well known for heavily salting the roads when it snows in the winter time. I'd suggest you take a real good look underneath that vehicle for rust & other hidden damage; You don't need an XK that's going to rust out from under you. I can also see at least one small tear in the driver's side seat if you look real closely at the pics;
Just as I have posted in the new member section I'd do the following if you are really considering buying it;
To Anybody who is Looking to buy a Commander;
You can check to see if all of the factory recalls & campaigns have been completed for the Commander you're looking at (or for the Commander you have already bought) by clicking on the hyperlink below & plugging in the VIN; If you are still looking and have not bought your Commander yet, I strongly recommend you do this BEFORE you buy it;
To get the factory build sheet for the Commander you are looking at, or for the Commander you have already bought, click on the link below and navigate to "Your Vehicle" click on "Equipment Listing" and then enter your VIN number in the box that says "VIN" and hit "Search". The factory build sheet will list all of the factory options & optional preferred equipment packages that your vehicle had installed from the factory when it was built.

The difference between a safety recall and a campaign is this; a safety recall pertains to a vehicle problem that is a safety concern; a campaign is a vehicle problem that is not a safety concern, but, pertains to customer satisfaction.
Additionally if you buy a Commander, and it didn't come with an owner's manual, you can download and print a factory owner's manual from this website; here is the link - and again, this is from the same website I listed above, just navigate to the point where you select "year" and "model" of the vehicle you want the owner's manual for:
ALSO: This guy claims to have meticulously maintained this XK since he took ownership of it at 24,000 miles as the 2nd owner and if that's the case, you should not see any recalls or campaigns that have not been completed. If you do, that would give me pause & I'd question his honesty about how well he really maintained it.
Personally, I'd probably stay away from this one - but if it's in close proximity to you, there's no harm in looking.
