Smooth, comfortable and beautiful

by Brody from Santa Barbara, CA | June 28, 2014

This is the last truly beautiful Jaguar design. In the past 20 years the bodies got bulkier and less slick. The car is gorgeous, sits low and drives like a dream. If you take care of it it won't let you down!

Great Cars

by DJHAN from Springfield, IL | November 13, 2012

I have had several of these XJ8 series cars. No problems, superior good styling, excellent blend of comfort, luxury and sportiness - something the Germans haven't figured out to this day - except maybe Audi, and they cost $5000 more at least for less in the performance domain. You should know that the pre-2004 versions need to look at timing chain tensioners, but other than that they are practically bullet proof other than normal maintenance. You should ALWAYS have one inspected by someone with Jaguar experieince before buying.

DO NOT BUY JAGUAR XJ8

by cigan from Florida | February 29, 2012

I purchased 1 2 years ago with 70k miles, it now has 88k and the transmission is dead.A new transmission is 6500, and even a rebuilt or used you'd have to still take to them so they could open it up and program it. I researched online and found out that the transmission failure is common and other jaguars have had their transmissions die by 45k, one even had 3 die by 40k. DO NOT BUY, beautiful car, but even a fiat is superior when considering its lifespan.

best bang for buck!

by sonny from Phila.,PA | August 24, 2011

excellent made auto w/all quirks removed. Prices have never been any better for a high line car such as this. Who wants or needs a Honda/Toy??? Best design up to 2005 ....still very classy and looks just right!

Bigest mistake I ever did

by Fine car admirer from New York, NY | March 11, 2011

You might take all the time as necesary before you buy a car. Do not go just because looks nice. Do not sign anything till you check out every detail of the car you want to buy.

Graceful Cat

by Big Mike from Seattle | January 3, 2008

I bought a 2002 XJ8 Sport in 2005. What a deal; original cost $60,000 plus, can be bought for a third of that. Smooth, fast and beautiful. No quality issues, Ford fixed all the electrical and cooling issues. Imagine that, Ford made Jaguar better! Man Jaguar must have been pretty bad to begin with! Big Mike
