2000 Jaguar XJ-Series Sedan XJ8 4dr Sedan


Review

I absolutely loved this car, was such a classic. However, I had to get rid of it after 2 transmission failures. It kept cracking drums within the transmission. There has yet to be a car designed that captured the stunning class and sophistication displayed by this Jag. Loved it, and as hard as it was to let her go, it proved impractical to keep fixing it over and over. Ford built it, so that should say something.

Review

Purchased from original owner, low mileage. Beautiful car, best ride ever IF you can keep it out of the shop. Never could get the heater to work properly, froze every winter. Difficult time finding a "good" jaguar mechanic that could troubleshoot. It seemed to always be something. Every time it went to the shop it was $600-$1000. The final straw was when the transmission went out at 79K. Resale value was so low I chose to not fix the car. What a shame. I'll never buy another one.


Favorite Features

The best aspect of this car was the looks and the seats. The seat was great on my bad back. Wonderful car on the highway.


Suggested Improvements

Quality and dependability.

Review

I purchased my XJ8 with 38,000 miles on it have driven it 2500 without any problems. I am now having an issue with the drivers side brake light. The passenger side works. I think it may be a ground problem as it works some time. The 4.0 engine is quiet and powerful,really like driving it. It is my 3rd Jag., and I love it.


Favorite Features

Exterior Style, interior luxury. Smooth and quiet.


Suggested Improvements

Better tires for all seasons, move the cup holders in front.
