I own a 2005 Jaguar XJR, now with 76k miles. 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, and acceleration on the highway when passing people is second to none. Enthusiasts can tell the difference between an R and an 8 (grill, wheels), but it surprises everyone else with the speed. I avg 23 mpg which is pretty good for 390 hp supercharged V-8, better than other cars I owned with over 100 less HP. Not the most comfortable for cross country trips, as it is more for sport, but the sound system is amazing and keeps you wanting more. Blows away my MB S600. Catches everyone's eye, and looks amazing. If anyone has any suspension issues... check your battery first! Easy cheap fix. or any expensive car with air suspension.

A car to be appreciated

PROS: handsome as George Clooney, faster than you'll ever need (155 mph); sheer eye-candy; best seat I've ever had thanks to squab adjustment (for shorter legs); leaper is visible from the driver's seat;low mile certified cars can take the worry out of ownership. CONS;No usable left-foot deadpeddle (Unless you make one yourself as I did); heated seats take forever @heater is v. slow to warm up, leather is on the stiff side; touch-screen is wonderful but can wash out in direct sunlight; my dealer in Toledo left town. OTHERWISE: BEST OF THE FIFTY CARS i'VE EVER OWNED! THE XJR IS A REALLY REAL AUTOMOBILE!! '04, owned 4 years @ put on27K miles.
