A Great Price When Purchased Used For Such A Nice Car. — This car is fast, just as fast as my 06 sts-v that was also supercharged, however this xjr rides SOOOO mush better, so smooth even with the very small sidewall tires which usually give a car a harsh ride. This thing as incredible torque, 18 piston brembo brakes so it stops better than anything I have ever driven. OK, so performance is great, ride is great, and handling is very sharp. Styling is very old school, but with refreshments to it doesn't look to bad. It is a blast to drive, i never had so many people pull up to me in traffic and tell me "wow, that's a nice car". There are drawbacks, not a spacious inside as you would expect from the largest car jaguar makes, it has the upgrades stereo, however it is unimpressive, and doesnt even have an aux input for ipod or anything, yet it has navigation.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the power, brakes, and handling.

Cons: Not as spacious as you would expect, poor fuel economy but what would you like from something faster than a factory corvette.

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

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: acceleration and  spped

Cons: nothing

Xjr — Ferociously fast, hugely comfortable, and enjoyably understated, the XJR never ceases to surprise and impress me with its blend of traditional Jaguar styling and contemporary engineering. The aluminium body makes it remarkably agile for a big car, and motorways are dispatched with disdain. It's not a cheap car to maintain with 20" wheels, enormous brakes and a thirst for petrol, but it is undoubtedly entirely worth the investment.

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

Pros: 400bhp, leather, wood, aluminium construction.

Cons: It'd be nice if it did 40mpg

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.
