An Exceptional Vehicle. — This car cruises incredibly on the free way, very good stability, soft steering, adjustable steering, cruise control, and it's ability to drive both in standard and automatic. It has an exceptional parking aid, and also has a smooth and quiet interior sound to it. In addition, it's surround sound takes you to a whole new level of entertainment.

Don't Dwell On The Pricey Repair Costs. I Love This Car. I Have Many Plans For It! — Really impressive performance for a 3.0L V6 J-Gate auto is fun while in Sport Shift mode. Heated seats coupled with power seats is a very comfortable combo. Good MPG despite its weight and very reliable as long as you keep everything maintained on it. But beware, it is a Jag, break something and be prepared to pay a lot for it. Unless its one of the Ford parts off of it. Classy and beautiful exterior lines and executive type colors. If you know how to drive an executive car like a true enthusiast, then you'll love this car!

Auto Repair Expense

Considering The Cost Of Repairs It's Still A Fun Car To Drive. — Vehicle appearance interior wise is 2nd to none. The english love to put luxury in their vehicles. The quality and craftsmanship and attention to detail make this vehicle rate 4 stars. Performance wise having the 3.0L is a little sluggish but the stoping power of the Akebono Calipers provides good stoping power. The 6 speed automatic transmission provides smooth shifting, however not happy when ATF & filter when it's changed. The filter is incorporated to the transmission pan requiring a new pan once the service has been done. Pan and filter can range from $260 or more. The handles great when taking curves at high speeds making this sedan fun to drive.

Pure British Sports Saloon — Drove this as a private chauffeur. Great car which combines sportyness and luxury in a perfect manner. Although it's an extremely fast car for its size, you never get the feeling of driving a sports car.
