Overall:

Its Not The LONG MODEL... Which I Much Prefer. Its The Perfect Colour Combination Of All & Of Course Has All Of The Finest Safety & Luxury Features. If You Can Find More In One Vehicle, Well, You Would Have To Prove It To Me.!!! The XJ8 L Van den Plas Is The Absolute Top Of The JAGUAR Line... Long, Sleek, Stylish, Classic Lines & Safer Than A Locomotive Engine. If You Dont LOVE The Big JAGUAR XJ8 Models, Well, You Just Dont Know Real Automotive Engineering, PERIOD.

Overall:

These cars are so over priced in the used car market. Everybody including dealers, thing these Jags are the best thing since duck soup. But nobody, and I mean NOBODY, knows that those air ride shocks do not last forever, they go around 50,000 miles, which is way too soon, and they cost $500 each and an extra $500 for the air pump. So, after you drive the car off the lot, you are looking at a shock bill of $2,500....AND THAT IS JUST FOR PARTS!!! And Jag dealers labor of 8 hours, at $165/hour...that a plus $1,320....for a grand total of $3,820.!! And you hope and pray that nothing else is bad! But hey!...Its a Jag!

Great luxury tourer. Love it. A low mileage Super V8 is such a bargain.

Jaguar should have used the XJR suspension in all XJ8L models ...which does not roll in turns yet still rides super well.

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

Overall:

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!!!
