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.

Sugar And Spice And Everything Elegant... — Luxurious (not just "stylish"), comfortable, excellent interior design makes it an enjoyable car for drivers of all ages and abilities. Sitting in the backseat is more like sitting on the sofa in your family room - only more comfortable. But don't be taken in by the smooth elegance.... all you have to do is step on the gas to get the full benefit of the Jaguar racing team history. Need to make a left turn onto a busy street to get out of our parking lot or neighborhood? No problem. This jag will have you pulled out and up-to-speed with the traffic flow before you realize it. Simply put, it's elegant performance and enduring style...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance, handling, interior design and user interfaces, spaciousness, comfort, stowage and luxury MPG

Cons: Absolutely NOTHING sucks about this car; the only downside is a relative one - if you  are looking for 40+mpg (as Europeans are used to getting in their cars - Americans are still getting ripped off in that category), then you'll be bummed that this car gets only about 28mpg Hwy.

2005 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 RWD Review
Megane_1125 says:
Fun to drive and a much improved and better engineered once Ford acquired Jaguar/Coventry(in the early 2000s). Has a much heavier feel than my 1994 XJ6. But none compare to my first Jaguar, a 1961 XK150 Roadster, with Lecock De Normanville electric O/D and chromed wire wheels, and Pirelli Centurato HSs.
