    B.e.a.utiful — Call me a traditionalist but this body style from a sedan is one of my most favorites. So much so this is the second one I’ve owned and can tell you I’m not a fan of the 2011 XJ’s. I love the ride and sportiness of the XJR. The only downside I can say has been I have to travel too far to have serviced by a mechanic who knows jaguars. I will eventually graduate to a Super V8 and keep forever.

    Pros: In my opinion one of the best styled sedans ever...

    Cons: not enough garages who know how to work on them

    Greatest Performance Luxury Sedan — 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 small things were the things that would break, for instance the telescoping mechanism in the steering column

    Pros: Unbelievable performance, very luxurious, very nice car

    Cons: only one windshield wiper, and too many small things that can go wrong

    A Lot Of Car For Not A Lot Of Money Supercar Saloon A Shoe String — Hits the limiter at 165 on the speedo and still wants to go. MPG is around the mid to late teens knocking around, although it will do 23-28 MPG on a run. A lot of car for not a lot of money very comfortable and feels special I would defo have another.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast, comfort

    Cons: Fuel, reliability
