Overall:

The engine in this car has three major weaknesses. First, the plastic timing chain tensioners like to fail around 60-8-K miles. An expensive repair! Second, the water pump impeller blade is made of plastic and likes to fail on a regular basis. Third, the thermostat housing is made of plastic and prone to leaking. Otherwise, a beautiful car and VERY fun to drive.

Dream Car — Great style in and out. Not the color for everyone but I love the uniqueness.... I believe it is called Phoenix....a deep burnt orange...with white interior and beige convertible top. Very good condition. Haven't had it long enough to judge upkeep costs so maintenance has a mid score. I don 't plan to "race" the car nor use it in snow so, again, the reliability rated a mid score since I don't know how it would be under those conditions.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun to drive, makes me feel good to be in it.  Used for leisure and scenic driving. It looks fantastic.

Cons: Not too easy to get in or out with the top up.  The "back seat" may be good for a dog but not many humans would be comfortable there.  I really don't know who this space was designed for.

Great Car, Certainly Eye Catching — I love everything about this car. The only problem is the cup holder! Leather is of great quality. Fairly large comprehensive online database of innovations and servicing assistance. Upgrading the wheels certainly adds additional eye appeal. You will love this car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great styling and handling

Cons: Maintenance cost.

Xk8 Convertible — Fun toy for sunny days out! Decent performance but it's no sports car. Well built, beautifully styled. It doesn't cost a lot to run, it's been pretty reliable and it turns heads wherever it goes. All in all a lovely place to sit on a sunny summer evening.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Looks

Cons: Auto gearbox

THE WORST CAR I EVER PURCHASED.....always breaking down, transmission problems plagued me, and some engine hoses were impossible to change as they leaked. What morons engineer these stupid vehicles.
