Vehicle: 1998 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan

This was my first Jaguar and has always been my dream car. I always joked that when I retired I would get a jaguar and guess what, I got one!! It has met every expectation I could of had. I have never driven a car so smooth and beautiful. I sure do get the looks and love every minute of it. I am averaging 26-28 MPG on the highway. I could not ask for a better car and I love love this one.

Vehicle: 1998 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan

This is the 3rd Jag I have owned and it is the best so far. The V8 engine is actually no better than the 4 liter 6 cyl eng, but it has a better reliability factor. Change oil at 4-5000 miles, rotate tires every 5000, wash and wax regularly. Wonderful family car with LOTS of room.




Amazing car

From the exterior design to the comfort and performance this car is A+++++ Just make sure you service it by a qualified mechanic and update the cooling system with a new water pump and hoses and you shouldn't have a problem. Also, buy parts ONLINE only; save you a ton of money!

A new V8 engine, taken from the XK8 Coupe and Convertible, makes its way into the engine bay. A revised instrument panel greatly improves interior ergonomics. Cruise and satellite stereo controls are located on the steering wheel.
