I have owned 2 S-Type V8 (still have one) which are really fun to drive and this XJ8 which is the best CPO money can buy for the money. If you want a sports sedan that is reliable and stunning, this blows away BMW,Mercedes and Audi for the money

Nice Ride

by from South Florida on November 30, 2009

Bought mine 3 mos ago and have put 6000 miles on it. 29 mph highway and 24.5 mpg blended. Big, fast and smooth. Cup holders too small and too few. Trunk too small for size of vehicle.

Incredible design, style, class, performance and reliability - purely classic. Even the mileage is great. It is not only an all around head turner but we look forward to "having" to go somewhere just so we can drive it. Purchased CPO it is way too much car for the $ - not many times one can ever say that about anything. I have always been a BMW nut and now have added Jag to the title.

I purchased this vehicle several months ago and I'm still in love! I've had no problems whatsoever. The car is approximately 8 years old and is still a head-turner! People assume it is a brand new vehicle because it's features are YEARS ahead of the rest. In spite of the fact that it's 8 years old, this vehicle MOVES! And is surprisingly AMAZING on gas. I have the big 8 cylinder (not the supercharged R) with upwards of 300 horses and get 17/27! UNHEARD OF! I've done several long distance trips and will get upwards of 600 miles to the tank! I love this car and I think I might become a Jaguar diehard!

I purchased a CPO 2004 XJ8 with 22,000 miles in June 2007. Beyond a few cryptic control labels and a mediocre trip computer, I have no complaints whatsoever. It's quiet, smooth (great transmission!) and has plenty of power. Freeway mileage is always around 28 mpg. You can also fit three car seats which makes it a nice alternative to other family transport options.

Im usually an Acura/Lexus guy I took huge risk & bought an XJ8 with just under 150K.expecting to drive it til the major issues started. To my surprise it drives like a dream & I haven't had one major issue in 2 years & I drive rough. It now has 197,138 miles & will out run my brothers 2006 Audi A8 no problem. Ive only had to replace the shocks & the both back door locks.. Great for 200K. Ive always been afraid of Jag maintenance. No more.... Im ready to pickup a 2012. & Im keeping my 04. Wish me luck

This is my second big Jaguar sedan; my first was a '94 XJ6 which I still have, and I just purchased my second XJ (8) today (5-31-11). I can't say enough good things about them. I am totally impressed with not only the appearance but also the performance. I own a Cadillac and a Lincoln, so I can recommend without reservation that of all the luxury cars available, I think Jaguars are the ultimate vehicles!!!
