2002 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ Sport 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 5A)
2 years ago I bought this car for my wife for her birthday because she has always wanted a Jag. This is just a beautiful vehicle. It does have it's quirks but they are far overridden by the cars elegance and luxury. All her local driving is done in her Maxima and long journeys are taken in the Jag. This is a touring car and is designed to be driven on the highway for long distances at cruising speeds(within the law, of course). Jags have had a horrible history with quality control that I believe Ford ironed out when they took over. Neither of us has ever quite driven a vehicle quality and luxury which is why it is probably the best car we ever owned.
High performance 4.0 liter engine, elegant body design and interior comfort. Excellent command of the road with cat like responsiveness.
Small interior compartment if you are a large person. this is not a fuel efficient car either, the trade off is for comfort.
