Great Car. Fun To Drive. Love The Look Of It. Black On Black — purchased my 99 xjr off orig. owner 2yrs.ago with 64,000miles. Have put aprox. 15,000 on car. This car is fast esp. in sport mode. car is tight and handles like a sports car. I ave. around 17.5 mpg. not bad for a super charged v8. Love the look of this car. black on black turns alot of heads. I have to say this car is fun to drive and came with a great stock sound system. I am now in the market for a 2002 because 99 has no gps. If you are looking to buy an xjr go for it..GREAT CAR..

Jaguar Xjr — This car was an all around excellent car. It performed well, very fast but heavy and powerful. This car turned heads. I purchased it used and had it for four years before I sold it at 84,000 miles. I replaced breaks twice and a fuse thats it. I ended up selling it for a BWM 325XI to increase fuel efficiency and to be better in the snow.

Pros

Great performance, looks good pulling up to the Symphony or a nice restaurant.

Cons

No headroom, poor build quality, engine issues that Jaguar should have issued a recall for.

Jaguar Xjr — This was a great daily driver for work, 370HP!!! But if you are over 6 ft - you cant fit in it. Plus, they are famous for cam tensioner failures that can cost more to repair than the value of the used car. I caught mine in time! After 5 Jags, i'll be keeping the 66 S Type, but otherwise the XJR was my last.

Beast — The car does what you ask of it. Comfortable to cruise with, unless you need to get somewhere quickly, and then it has no mercy. Excellent braking and handling. A bit thirsty, and costly to repair, but very safe and fun to drive.

Nice But Expensive. By Gerardo

I love this car but maintenance price sucks. I spent over 1000 just on tires. Plus they were the okay ones. The thing I love is the engine and the comfort and the SUPERCHARGER. I made some other car e... Read More

Greatest Performance Luxury Sedan By Nick

I loved this car, it would hold a hard corner at 80 mph and could even hold a power slide before correcting itself. The drivers seat was the most comfortable, and the interior was excellent. But the... Read More
