Overall:

This Jaguar XJ is loaded with comfort features. Frompremium sound in each trim package to GPS, heated fron / back seats. Other features can be a factor to be aware that will need replacement soon like the adaptive height suspension. The V8 engine is highly reliable, although service parts are expensive.

Floating On Air — I had wanted one for years and researched them enought to know which years to stay away from, finally found a couple to choose from and then made up my mind. I am more than happy with my choice and can't stop bragging about it- my next car with only be a newer version of my '03'

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the classic look of the body lines and the beauty of the interior- I mean for any base model to have all leather, sunroof, and everything else they throw in is fantastic. It also comes with power like I haven't experienced before with any vehicle and a comfortable ride to boot.

Cons: Though it looks and drives great it sucks gas like it's still $1.57 a gallon, I had to spend a chunk of money to get so updates installed in the computer for better fuel efficiency but also achieved even more horsepower if you can believe that!

Sybil On Steroids — Loved this car, although you can get a lemon or just one that needs some TLC. If you buy one, be prepared to put some money into her every now and then. Otherwise, when they are running they run like a dream.

Pros: Smooth Ride, Looks of looks and compliments

Cons: Can get squirrley with misc repairs but still one of the prettiest rides out there

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 issues. Love this car.

Pros: luxury smooth quiet ride with 370 hp on tap excitement when needed

Cons: Hard to get in and out of driver seat quickly

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? And I'm not a fat guy either!! Sharp looking car, reliability has been surprisingly good, and the car always gets lots of comments.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: cruising, looks style

Cons: comfort

Class And Performance — While I'll admit the Jaguar XJR is not the most technologically advanced car in it's class, it certainly has the looks, power and handling. Unlike competition from BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, Audi and others, the Jaguar features a unique shape and style that is absolutely timeless, and gorgeous. Old man car? You may think so until you mash the throttle and watch 60MPH fly by in about 5 seconds flat, beating even some of the most exotic sports cars.

Pros: Power, looks, quality

Cons: Brakes are average at best

Sweet — This is a little better model than my last car the VDP is the top of the line for Jaguar. The interior shows it. Plush, all power everything. These are real head turners and they ride like they are on a cloud! Had the car a week and it stands up to the last Jag I had. The car rides great no rattles no squeaks. I have two minor problems the power drivers side head rest doesn't work and the CD player seem not to want to play. Both should be easy fixes for me. Of course I'll need to have the car for several months before I really know every little detail but so far it's just as good as my 98 XJ8L.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Like my last car these are amazing vehicles

Cons: I haven't found any problems with my last one i doubt this will be any trouble.
