1998 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought 'certified Jag' hoping to get a good reliable car, no such luck. The car has a tendancy to loose all power, I mean ALL POWER while traveling down the freeway at 70mph. Not a good thing. Has been in the shop 9 times for problems ranging from the rear view mirror dripping chemicals, to replacing the front ball joints (3 times) and rod ends, to replacing the throttle assembly (twice - the cause of the freeway melt down). Fun to drive when it is up and running. Havn't had a problem in 7 months. Fingers crossed!

Favorite Features

The extended warranty. You will need it. Total repaires in excess of $9,500.00 Jag paid for all repairs. Next car will be a Q45!

Suggested Improvements

Design great. quality interior un surpassed. Mechanical needs to be rethought.
