    Classic Elegance — This car is wonderful to own. It's a classic and elegant automobile, it's not a car per se! Great performance and handling. Extraordinary comfort at all speeds. Not for everyone as it's maintenance cost can be a serious drawback unless you strictly follow the maintenance schedule. I love it!

    Pros: Style, pace and grace

    Cons: None

    Luxurious Sports Car — I like the comfort as well as the look of my car and especially the power and the way she handles curves without having to touch the breaks and the breaks are heavy duty and will stop on a dime.

    Pros: Looks great inside and out,no dents,dings or cracks in the leather

    Cons: Have to special order alot of the parts but a good mechanic can have most within 24 hours

    Buy One And Buy One Now! — Finally got an XJ! 4.2 V8, but the aluminium body makes it no heavier on fuel than my previous 3.0 V6 X Type. Hit the sport button and this car really shifts. Big and comfy, superb handling. It's a big car but it somehow shrinks around you when you drive it. I'm in love!

    Pros: What's not to like?

    Cons: Nothing.

    A Great Buy For A Luxury Car Lover — I have honestly nothing negative to say about this car, perhaps its because I get a thorough maintenance job done on it every season. The only reason I am looking to sell it now is because I am no longer single and need a family vehicle

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It starts up every morning, drives well, handles the road great, smooth ride, breaks work great. Never had any major mechanical, electrical or AC issues.

    Cons: Haven't had any yet

    2004 Xj8 — 2004 XJ8 - great ride! Impressive, great looks. Runs like a champ. Power galore. Big V8 engine gets off of the line in a hurry and can move around corners like a sports car. Impress your friends and drive a Jaguar.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Premium gas

    Good Car If You Can Afford Having Another Car Around To Drive — The car is beautiful, fun to drive, and performs (when it works) but it's in the shop all the time so we have to give only 2 stars. Jaguar cars still have the mechanical problems of the past and it makes it a problem for fans of the cars. You have to have a second car to use to own a vandenplas from the 2004 year. This car has been in the shop more than 60 days in the past year. We love the way the car drives when it works, sadly it doesn't work well often.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: comfortable ride, beautiful, fun to drive

    Cons: always in the shop

    Jag Xj8 2004 — I still shake my head at why the car devalues so fast. This car was totally re engineered in 2004 and it doesn't have any weaknesses. I really can't think of any complaints even if Ford sold them to Tata. Tata has some deep pockets so maybe Jag will take it rightful place once again.

    Pros: styling, ride, performance (weight is low for big car), solid body construction - very rigid but light, 1st class tranny

    Cons: living in FL I would ask for the AC to blow harder during startup, but that's about all I would change

    Samm's Car — I don't like the sporadic warning light flashing up for no reason - I have to take it to the dealer to get it turned off...A known problem with Jaguar, I hear. I just love the smooth, comfortable ride in my car. Perhaps I just grew up but I wouldn't swap it for any sporty job!

    Luxury On All Levels! — I like the power yet the comfort and feel of the car. Handles curves very well and engine is very strong.i like the luxury and feel of the jaguar family.great family car as well and fun to drive. Compared to other cars i would say jaguar is 10 steps above the rest.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Has alot if get up and go with a luxury ride and feel to the car!

    Cons: Finding mechanics that honestly know how to work on jags,which I have a very good mechanic that does work for a fraction of the cost of a dealership.
