Review of the 2002 Jaguar XJ-Series

  • The XJ8 is authentically Jaguar: big outside, small inside, filled with supple leather and lustrous wood, and hopelessly outdated.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful supercharged V8 engine, aggressive and sexy look, sport-tuned suspension.

  • Cons

    Classic British interior might be too cramped for some people, aged chassis and structure.

  • What's New for 2002

    A new XJ Sport trim debuts, which melds elements of the XJ8 and XJR. Additionally, the Vanden Plas Supercharged model -- previously available only on special order -- is now a regular-production sedan, called Super V8. The long-wheelbase XJ8L is discontinued.

Not the jags of old

5th Jag. 3rd XJ. My wife wouldn't even consider another car. Very reliable, comfortable to drive, handles and performs well. Solid family/luxury car. Ford has done an amazing job with these cars.

I have a 2002 Jaguar XJ Sport (XJ8). It did not come with a key remote. I purchased the proper remote and now I need to program it. Anybody know how that is accomplished short of going to the deal?...

Jaguar has excellent safety profiles. This is obviously confirmed by your tragic accident but fortunate in its outcome....
