Pros

I love the classic look of the body lines and the beauty of the interior- I mean for any base model to have all leather, sunroof, and everything else they throw in is fantastic. It also comes with power like I haven't experienced before with any vehicle and a comfortable ride to boot.

Cons

Though it looks and drives great it sucks gas like it's still $1.57 a gallon, I had to spend a chunk of money to get so updates installed in the computer for better fuel efficiency but also achieved even more horsepower if you can believe that!

Floating On Air — I had wanted one for years and researched them enought to know which years to stay away from, finally found a couple to choose from and then made up my mind. I am more than happy with my choice and can't stop bragging about it- my next car with only be a newer version of my '03'

Good Looks, Fast, Bulky And Not Very Comfortable — This car surpassed my expectations. One small complaint is that it just isnt as comfortable as you would think it should be, who designed that emergency brake handle that digs into your right thigh? And I'm not a fat guy either!! Sharp looking car, reliability has been surprisingly good, and the car always gets lots of comments.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Magic Carpet Ride — This car rides so smooth and when you need the power, its right there waiting for you to pounce on the accelerator. I have had nothing but good luck with this car. Routine maintenance and no major issues. Love this car.

Pros

Power, looks, quality

Cons

Brakes are average at best

Class And Performance — While I'll admit the Jaguar XJR is not the most technologically advanced car in it's class, it certainly has the looks, power and handling. Unlike competition from BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, Audi and others, the Jaguar features a unique shape and style that is absolutely timeless, and gorgeous. Old man car? You may think so until you mash the throttle and watch 60MPH fly by in about 5 seconds flat, beating even some of the most exotic sports cars.

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
