    Love At First Sight — Very comfortable and reliable car to own. My 1st Jag, but not my last!!! Plenty of room for 4-5 passengers with a luxury ride. Surprisingly good fuel economy. Impressive visual appearance and an eye-catcher. Looking for XJK Convertible now

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Rides and handles exceptionally well. Joy to drive everywhere

    Cons: None

    Stylish — Great and comfortable car to drive. Lots of space in the rear seat and in the front seat, quiet when driving down the road and handles back country roads like a dream. Glad we bought this car, will see how repair costs go in the future

    Pros: interior space, power

    Cons: fuel economy, average 22mpg

    Looks Great, Handles Great — Overall a great sedan but too much plastic under the hood and with all the room in there stuff put where it cannot be gotten to. Good gas mileage, handles well for a heavy car, lots of interior room, Radio channel alignment is squirely at best...

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: lots of room and power for a big sedan. Very nimble

    Cons: too costly to repair at dealer , found an after market repair shop that is reasonable or do some repairs myself
    Ford did not have a better idea when they bought Jag!!!

    Pure Joy — I have owned the car for 10 years and it was a great investment. The repairs were covered under warranty and the vehicle was dependable. I would highly recommend this machine if you enjoy Pure Joy and great driving. Go Get One.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Pure Joy

    Cons: You tend to get spoiled when you drive a machine like this.  The ride, pick up, and the looks.

    Excellent Executive Sedan For Less — Fun to drive. Great on long road trips. Some many be put off by the styling but is is a classic British charm and knows when to use good manners and when to get rowdy. Excellent deals available and surprisingly good fuel economy.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent value for money. An executive sedan for less.

    Cons: Outdated styling

    Perfect Car For An Englishman Abroad — The Jag I always wanted - all the toys, most of them still work, fast enough to have to be careful, rare enough to turn heads, nice to leave with the valet parking, everything you need in a car, only costs £25 to fill the tank :-)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The whine from the supercharger on kickdown

    Cons: A bit fragile in the Dubai heat, repairs starting to get expensive

    2005 Jaguar Xj Vanden Plas — The car drives like a dream. Couldn't ask for more performance or smoother power from the 4.2L V8. More toys than anyone could ever ask for either. Plus - it gets great gas mileage. All in all, the kitty delivers flawlessly.

    Pros: Power, Ride, Handling, Features

    Cons: Stock Grille

    My New Jag Xj8l - 3 Years And Counting . . . — Performance? Man, I live in the wrong State, L0L I nail this baby and I'm 80-90 by the end of the block. Squeaks & Rattles? Only when I take my moms Chryslerout for a spin. Appearance. Well, would you believe i still get the compliments after 3 years. Cost of Ownership - yea, does this baby depreciate fast. But I get astonishing gas mileage. Long trips down the interstate a whopping 36MPG at a steady 80MPH. Normally I get low 20's with each tank although just the 2 mi to work and home pulls me down to 18. Who cares if it takes SuperHi-test. Fun factor. Yes, this car is fun to drive (and comfy too)

    Pros: Comfort, style, responsive and reliable.

    Cons: Negatives? Hey this is a Jaguar.

    Wonderful Luxurious Car — great car, super fast, super luxurious, everything is electronic and adjustable, nice audible navigation system, even talks.....a lot more extras...luv it.

    Pros: wonderful...

    Cons: seating is a bit uncomfortable , maybe because it's a sports car. I luv the Murano seats more.
