Most Reliable Car I Have Ever Owned — I bought my car new in 2003. Have now completed 147,000 miles only problem I have had is a sender unit in the fuel tank had to be changed the car behaves perfectly and on a run from Boca Raton to Tampa I will get about 28mpg how about that for a V8

Stylish Sport Vehicle — Just acquired this vehicle less than 2wks ago. It took me a half day just 2 locate the low side port 4 the AC, but other than that, I'm enjoying the experience. I can't wait 2 really open it up on the highway.

Pros

Lots of luxury, feels like you're piloting a small rocket ship. Uses many Ford / Lincoln components (less expensive than Jag branded parts). Good highway gas mileage. Extremely quiet inside. Classic Jaguar good looks.

Cons

Small trunk. Parts and repairs can be expensive just because it's a Jag. Mediocre gas mileage around town.

Fabulous Touring Car. — I love almost everything about this car. It has put the joy back into driving again, especially on long distance trips. At 70 mph I can have a quiet conversation with a passenger without having to speak loudly, as I did in my '96 Avalon.

Great Reason To Own This Jaguar — This is a great car, pampered, well maintained, awesome car on the road. Performance, acceleration and braking is terrific! Very smooth, road hugging, very comfortable on long drives in the mountains!! Fun to drive especially with the 6 speed trans.

Pros

looks, durability, overall efficiency of engine, handling, stereo

Cons

attracts far too much attention, skimpy on room for rear passengers, exhaust note not deep enough (compared to XK with exact same engine).

Quick, Smooth, Efficient — Well it'll be mine soon and very soon. But pretty much the 4.2L scoots really quickly, the transmission shifts seamlessly, and she still returns up to 31 mpg on the highway in steady state cruising. 50/50 weight distribution leads to very stable and predictable handling, though understeers a bit much for my taste at the limit. The ride is smooth and quiet as expected, and the stock Bose stereo is excellent. Seats are supportive enough, though lacking in rear leg room if the front passengers are in a comfortable position. The brakes are excellent, though the mushy pedal takes some getting used to. Steering is communicative and light around town, but nicely weighted at speed. The interior is beautifully crafted in Burl Walnut and leather, and has held up very nicely. 5 years later, still attracts (too much) attention.

My Jag — I love my Jag!!!!! It is very fast, built very solid and looks great. I love it when people check out my car. It gets an average of 27 Mile to the gallon. I have only seen one other car that looks like it. My wife is getting sick of me talking about it.
