There is no indicator light, But I am currently trying to figure out where to mount an LED, that will be wired to the MSD wires in the engine. I will post up a How To, so that when you own that awesome HEMI, you can consider doing it yourself.
Things to look for...
-Pay attention to noises coming from the windshield...There have been numerous reports of whistling...mine included.
-LISTEN to the sounds of the vehicle...The motor, the transmission, the steering, etc. Make a note of these, and then drive another XK to see if they have the same noise. One noise to look for is in the steering. People have had to replace their "rack" at pretty low milage.
-Look at all of the shocks on the vehicle. I had one in the rear replaced at about 25k mi, and now have one in the front that has been out since 42K mi.
-Go through "Problems / Dealer Service" page on this site, and read about other's concerns...Don't let it scare you, but rather take it to heart and use the information here to help you decide on your purchase.
One last thing. I know I will catch guff from the others, but you can do better on the price...Especially today. I would probably offer 16, and expect to pay 18, plus warranty...I repeat: PLUS WARRANTY. lol.
PS. You never said where you were from...Where might that be?
No more jeeps for me... I get around by bicycle now.
