Overall:

An absolutely spectacular driving machine! Beautiful in every way. Perfect handling, FAST and responsive. Very quiet and luxurious. I was lucky to find this perfectly maintained automobile with flawless attention to detail in the maintenance. Literally, the only thing I am doing is changing the tires for road safety.

2008 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L RWDReview

Overall:

2,500 Miles And Already Having Transmission Problems. — I bought my 2008 XJ8L with zero miles on it and at 2,500 miles I started having what some web sites refer to as "the lurch". When I come to a rolling stop I feel a thump as the transmission downshifts from 2nd to 1st gear. It's not like the car wont run, but it's so irritating that I no longer enjoy driving the car. It's not what I would call a pleasant experience after just 2,500 miles for a $70K car. The car is now at the dealership for the second time. If they can't fix the problem after this second trip to the dealership I'm going to ask them to buy the car back from me. I LOVE the look of the car from the outside, and the inside. It's distictive (doesn't look like a jelly bean like so many other cars) and dignified (the dashboard doesn't look like a boom box). But the transmission issue leaves me cold.

Pros: Beautiful body and interior.

Cons: Transmission issues, poor finishing touches on trunk carpet, no rear view camera, no in-dash 6-CD player, shallow trunk, no keyless entry, no keyless start, and horrible navigation devise.  I can overcome all of the shortcomings except the transmission.  Nobody will ever buy this car from me with its current transmission issue.  I spent $70K on a car I now hate to drive.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed the the dealer will fix the transmission.  If they can, then all will be forgiven and all the cons will melt away.

2008 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ Vanden Plas RWD Review
Guru9T24P says:
Very classy looking vehicle. Very comfortable with more than enough room in the front and back seats. The 2008 Jaguar VDP is a Jaguar i-con with its style and grace that demands attention where ever its seen. I have owned four of them over the past twenty years. I have owned 3- XJ8 Vanden Plas….. and 1-XJS Convertible . Loved them all. JVM
vs2013 Porsche Boxster S
2008 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ Vanden Plas RWD winning categories:
  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Handling Ranked 2013 Porsche Boxster S better.
"Its a smaller vehicle. Built low to the ground. Will hug the road much better than the Jaguar. Will maneuver much better in high speed turns and heavy traffic. And, is a fun car to drive with the top down when out for just a cruise down the road."
Would Buy Ranked 2013 Porsche Boxster S worse.
"Classic style, comfort and beauty. An icon in automotive history and I have owned 4-Jaguar VDP in the past twenty years and had good luck with all of them ...... JVM"
