2005 Jaguar XJR 4 Dr Supercharged Sedan Review
Consumes tires...but that's mostly the drivers' fault. :)
Xjr: Breed Of Its Own — One of the most under-rated cars of all time. I know many people are prejudice about Jaguars in general but this car has completely altered my perception of the company. The engine is one of the smoothest I have ever drive. Power is delivered in massive amounts (400BHP) but it is extremely linear. The car, for its size, is extremely agile as I am able to keep pace with Mini Coopers and S2000's driving at a highly spirited pace in my neighboring canyons. The brakes are infallible...the 14.4 inch rotors are clamped by 4 piston Brembo floating aluminum calipers. This car has not failed me once...no major issues have arose during my four years of ownership. The styling is unique to its own as its distinctiive shape cannot be mistaken for any other car. With only 1,400 made so far, its is a rare breed of car to see. Gas mileage is amazing on the freeway where I can average up to 27.6MPG at an average speed of 85MPH. Maintenance has been covered by Jaguar so I have not paid a penny for anything. Its combination of style, performance, and reliability makes it one of the best cars I have ever driven and owned.

Ferociously fast, hugely comfortable, and enjoyably understated, the XJR never ceases to surprise and impress me with its blend of traditional Jaguar styling and contemporary engineering. The alumini... Read More
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 i... Read More
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? ... Read More
I Loved To Drive And Ride In This Car And I Would Not Turn It Away If I Could Have It.
This car was like riding on a cloud. The handling was good along with all the extras that were included. I went a whole week without filling this car up and I went from Detroit airport to Bay City and... Read More
Look No Further If You Want A Great Car That Runs Like A Cat And Purrs Like A Kitten.
