    Long And Low, Luxurious, Stylishly Appointed, Sports Car. — For me, the 1999 Jaguar Vanden Plas has long been the best looking car on the road, ever. And finally I came to be the owner of one. The handling, power, comfort, luxury, control features, and safety features, all combine to make this the best car I have ever driven. And the styling makes it the classic beauty of all time. This basic style has been the Jaguar look for decades, and the 1999 refinement of this look, is in my opinion the apex of this style. After 1999, the entire XJ series began to shrink, the classic exterior stainless steel and chrome trim diminished and interior burl walnut and luxury trim began to adopt a more economic appearance in response to the demand for a smaller, more fuel efficient and generally plebeian cars. Years ago, I watched as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles arrived at the National Cathedral, in Washington, D.C. For safety, the Royals always ride in separate cars, and not surprisingly the car reflects rank. The Prince rode in a Jaguar Vanden Plas much like my own, in the signature forrest green of British royal cars. The Queen rode in a majestic, well preserved Rolls-Royce, same color.

    Pros: Styling, luxury and comfort features, handling, power, 4 speed Automatic transmission.All Lucas electric parts and the infamous XJ-6 engine were replaced with those designed by Ford.

    Cons: The error messages, and computer code results are not specific enough to eliminate the

    For People With Champagne Taste On A Beer Budget. It's Affordable! — This car is reliable as it is beautiful. It handles well and has power. Just be careful of dips and low driveways because the car sits low. There is plenty trunk space, leg room, and seats five comfortably. Great car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great ride.  Excellent for road trips or Sunday drives.  Great cars as long as you keep the maintenance up.  It will last forever.

    Cons: The car is low so it's easy to scrape the air dam.

    A Very Classy Car. — A Jaguar Vanden Plas is the top line for Jaguar cars. The wood grain interior is the highest quality and it shows in the front and back seats. This is a very clean and beautiful car. It drives and rides very smoothly. It is a safe strongly built car.

    Pros: Good looking car and a smooth riding car.

    Cons: Nothing

    I Would Not Recommend It, Unless You Have A Lexus Parked In The Garage For Daily Driving — Jaguar has a very good history, well that's history....nice distinguishable lines, leather interior, but gotta put a BMW engine in it to make it worth driving. Among Luxury car, price drops like a hammer, nice 2 drive. parts are specific to a couple of years

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: they are cheap when bought used

    Cons: parts break too often, especially the transmission

    1999 Jaguar Xj-8 Vanden Plas — This car did everything but pour your coffee for you. Unfortunately I got this car after some idiot who didn't know how to take care of a German luxury car. You can't just put Wal-mart stuff into these things. Overall though this was a very good car. I would like to have another one someday, maybe an XF next time.

    Pros: Fantasticaly smooth ride.

    Cons: Premium fuel only.

    Proof Of Time Travel. — This car is way before it's time.The phone, stereo system, remotes all over for things that one wouldn't usually think of. It's as if a time traveler went back from the future and created this vehicle based on what was to come. This is what makes this car so unique. Although I prefer a sporty car over the large luxury classic style,( other car is Alfa Romero Quadrifoglio) I have to admit it's a fun drive. High maintenance costs. This is a great luxury car for an individual who wants comfort and a safe adventure car.Family car? I don't know if I would personally want dogs and ice cream all over my handstitched leather interior.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: beautiful, comfortable, lots of bells and whistles

    Cons: Maintenance is high as expected with a Jag.
