Bought Used, So Good Value For 10 Years Of Service! — Reliable, which may surprise some people! Comfy highway car, with a great, peppy engine. Got 27 mpg on a trip from Detroit to Central N.Y. Will only part with this car for a lower, cheaper to repair car ( Lincoln MKZ).

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Still attracts attention, reliable (Ford fixed electrical problems!)

Cons: Expensive to fix, when things do ware out.

Black Beauty Ii — I sold this car to but a smaller X-Type when I moved into the hills and needed the AWD. I miss the quiet luxury this car provided when driving around town or on the highway. 1997 was the last year of the six-cylinder (4.0L) XJ's. If I had space, I would own another one, I miss the comfort.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great touring car with Jaguar performance, handling, looks.  Trouble free ownership.

Cons: Poor fuel economy

What A Machine — It is a real car. If you ever drive one you will feel like you cannot drive anything less. Cost of ownership is pretty high although the actual car itself is cheap enough to just throw away and get another if something goes wrong.

Pros: Practically Perfect in every way

Cons: Expensive to run. But worth it

Lwb And Proud — The last of the LWB Jags with the Inline 6 still make in the UK! In all ways, we love this car. Styling is superb, the inline six has great fuel mileage with still having enough power to throw you in the back of the seat. No small task for this GIGANTIC car! The Vanden Plas Two-tone doeskin interior is attractive and comfortable! Parts when needed can be tricky to find, but this car for 11 years old still turns heads, and still turns the wheels well.

Pros: EVERYTHING

Cons: parts?

Last Brit Xj — Possibly not quite as sinister as the series III XJ, this has more equipment and slightly better build quality. The Diamond Jubilee special edition adds a couple of toys, and brilliant hot-pot style alloys (mmm). 3.6 more economical but not quite as soulful as before. Same virtues as earlier XJs, though less evocative. Worth considering as it predates Ford's takeover.

Pros: Comfort, Handling, Smooth.

Cons: Parking, still some reliability issues, not as much space as you'd expect, but v cosy.
