Nice! — Rides so comfortably....and quiet, but has the horses when needed....very good gas mileage on the highway. Silver color looks terrific and can drive effortlessly in town or on the highway.....lots of room inside [extended version] plus plenty of trunk space.

Pros

Power, handeling, and fuel mileage.

Cons

None really. As with all cars of this age sometimes you will need to replace something, but nothing major so far.

Fun To Drive, But Luxurious. — I can't believe the fuel mileage that this car gets. It's unbelievable I know, but it's true. I have on every trip between my home and Santa Monica which is 54 miles each way 108 round trip been able to make this trip with less than 3 gallons of 91 octane fuel. This is with 12 miles of the trip there in stop and crawl traffic which takes 30 minutes before clearing. The handeling reminds me of some of the best sports cars that I've owned. The air suspension is stiff in the corners then smooth over bumps. I love this car. Many of the parts in this car say Ford on them which some of you might think is a bad thing, but I believe that it is a good thing. I've owned many Ford cars and trucks, and have had nothing but good luck with them. In 2002 it's 4.0L 290hp V8 was rare. Even Ford's own Mustang GT with a 4.6L V8 had only 260hp. It didn't hurt purchasing this car $4000 under book value either. The engine runs smooth and quiet, and the transmission shifts buttery smooth.

Pros

A lovely ride overall.  Very zippy for such a heavy car, and gas mileage is about 19 mpg

Cons

Had to replace the headliner, a common Jaguar problem.  This model doesn't have bluetooth or heated seats (small issues)

Jaguar Xj8 2002 — This is a luxury car that actually has enough head and leg room for a 6'6" 275 lb man, but it also accomodated his 5'2" wife. The back seat can fit 3 adults comfortably. I packed for a monthlong trip and it fit in the trunk.
