2004 Jaguar XJ-Series XJR 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

The "I Love to Walk Up to It, Get In,
Drive it Everywhere All the Time And No
Longer Rent To Cut Mileage On Frequent
Cross-State Trips" factor is
overwhelming! It is the World's Best
Car, for me. It has dramatically
ameliorated if not erased my life
long "Bently Thing" (the dash
especially is that fine --and fun). I
took a leap of faith they have, in this
ground-up new vehicle, erased the
incontrovertable Jag demons; with
12,800 HARD miles in 7 months and
nothing of consequence wrong, I believe
they have. Its brilliant, tough, fun,
luxurious, complex yet intuitive; and
blisteringly fast! An Aston Martin with
a baby seat next to the rear door!


Best Features

The "its yours" thrill gets me every time; I simulate this by going up to 740's, 500's, 8's etc. and don't feel nearly the same emotinal call! (Phaeton 12 comes close, but not at 1500 lbs extra (!), 18k more and still slower! FINALLY; 4.8 seconds zero to 60 (Car and driver tested!)


Worst Features

Better wipes on side windows (streaks 24 hrs after wash) Overdue satilite radio (offer update package to 2004 owners!) Sligtly wider, better looking seats (dont touch the dash!)And with those honking huge MB engines coming; KEEP IT COMPETITIVELY FAST (though its all already insane!)

2004 Jaguar XJ-Series XJR 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

Sexiest car I will ever own, drives
like a dream! I would recommend this
car to anyone. Driven German cars for
a few years now and I will never look
back, I fancy an XJR one day!


Best Features

Sexy looks, Power Quality build/finish.


Worst Features

2006 version will lose abit of weight, which should help leave the opposition even further behind.

Vehicle

2004 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

If you like a big comfort type of ride
the XJ Jag is top of the line. It's not
as tight or quick as a Bemer, but not
nearly as expensive and a whole lot
better looking. Gas mileage sucks.


Best Features

Everything you look at.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Higher contrast in the digital readouts. Need my reading glasses to see numbers.
