1999 xj8l solid car

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan

Car was purchased in 2003 just turned four years old with 28,000 miles, interior and exterior were in perfect shape and remain so today even after being driven all through the winters in Buffalo NY, the last six years. Only problem with the car in all that time was a timing chain tensioner went bad and was expensive to repair. All told it has been the best car I have ever owned and with only 81,000 miles it still has a long way to go.

Still loving it

Vehicle: 1999 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan

I am still loving my Jaguar XJ8L. I purchased it after 12 years of "mom- mobiles" ... Taurus station wagons. I had always dreamed of owning a Jag but never thought it would be possible. It has given me no trouble over the years and is completely cool to drive :) One year remained on the original warranty when purchased at 22,000 miles and there were a few issues, mostly cosmetic and the radio was replaced twice, that Jaguar gladly repaired under warranty. The Jaguar dealership in Greenville, SC was a delight to deal with. I now have 122,000 miles on it and am looking forward to more. It gets better than 25 miles to the gallon (premium) on the highway always and about 18.5 around town.

Buying an old xj8l

Vehicle: 1999 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan

Buying an old 1999 Jaguar XJ8L can be very dangerous, however this one is superb. The leather on the driver's seat edge is a bit worn, needs re-dyeing, but that said, the car is gorgeous both outside and inside for such an older one. It drives dead silent at any speed like a Jaguar should. I was impressed by the great gas mileage for a car this large, 24 mpg. Lots of room in the rear as it is a long wheelbase "L" version, and I highly recommend buying this model over the standard sedan. It is fun to drive, very comfortable, and has that timeless Jaguar styling. Highly recommended for the money, you simply can't beat it. Buy one for around $11,500 in great condition, you'll love it.

Wife has always wanted a Jaguar. So, for her birthday we found a single owner Jaguar of sale. He had all of the service records from day one. Fun to drive and handles great. Mileage is OK, around 23 on the hwy and 19 around town. Price? Less then $16k, for a car that cost $61000.00. It doesn't look like every other car on the road. Body styling is what makes this car turn heads.

1999 jaguar

Vehicle: 1999 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan

I have in the past 20 years owned 14 vehicles mostly cars,and a few suv's and pickup trucks. I have owned a few American cars,and the others, imports from either Japan, Germany, and now England(UK). The Jaguar is by far the finest,in it's boldly elequent body design, and equally handsome leather interior.The performance is second to none with power in reserve at all ranges,and the ride and cornering are perfectly suited for a premium sedan. Surely the Very Best of the best.
