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XJ8 is authentically Jaguar: big outside, small inside, filled with supple leather and lustrous wood, and hopelessly outdated.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

Vehicle: 2002 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 5A)

Overall very pleased and impressed with this vehicle. As a first-time Jag owner, had not considered a Jag in the past, had previously owned MB, Audi. Have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this vehicle. So far, my ownership experience has been great and has exceeded my expectations!




Amazing vehicle!

Vehicle: 2002 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 5A)

Wife and I found this car in 2006 with only 9600 original miles. I can hardly get her out of it! We have a 2005 Town Car, which rides great, but there is nothing like driving a JAG! What a ride!




The king of cars

Vehicle: 2002 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 5A)

This car feels like you're driving a cloud. Extremely smooth ride, an amazing drive with superior power.

Vehicle: 2002 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 5A)

This vehicle is my number one choice, I test drove all the others in this vehicle class,(the S-class, the 7 series and the Deville), nothing else compares to this beautiful masterpiece.




Back to jag

Vehicle: 2002 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 5A)

After owning Jags since 1998, decided to try the LS430. After 3 weeks in the Lexus I knew I made a mistake. The Lexus felt like a van, cross winds, uncomfortable seats, road noise from the rear tires. I thought I sold my cabin cruiser in 1994. Back to Jaguar in 4 weeks. The drive, comfort, style, handling. Just sit in the car and let it go. It purrrs at 85 mph.




There's none better

Vehicle: 2002 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 5A)

This is my second Jag and if it is anything like the first I'll be estactic. I had a XJ8 before, now I went for the Vanden Plas...wow, what a difference in ride and confort. The last one was excellent, this one is subperb. It's a darn shame they're going to change the vehicle next year, as this is one classic style vehicle that doesn't get old.

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....
