2014 Jaguar XJ Reviews

Vehicle Overview

Jaguar's flagship sedan, the five-seat XJ, has exterior and interior design cues in the style of the XF sedan. The long-wheelbase XJL has five inches of extra rear legroom. The XJ competes in the full-size luxury class with the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, Lexus LS 460 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
New for 2014
A high-performance XJR model replaces the XJ Supersport and is powered by a 550-horsepower, supercharged V-8 engine. The normally aspirated V-8 engine has been dropped.


Other changes include standard soft-close doors, enhancements to the available front-seat massage feature and a newly available 26-speaker Meridian premium stereo.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
