2007 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

After owning almost every other premium import sedan over the last 20 years, I finally bought the XJ8L Jag. What a surprise. It may be sold as a luxury sedan, but it performs like a sports sedan. Quick reflexes without the hard ride. Comfortable seats, tons of room and excellent mileage. Plus its straightforward interior controls and ergonomics beat BMW and MB to death. Its sad that this car is not considered by more enthusiasts drivers wanting luxury as icing.


Favorite Features

Classic styling, agility, fuel economy, lots of leg room (L body), supportive seats, simple controls and quietness.


Suggested Improvements

Offer a more feature-rich nav system, and a factory integrated audio connectivity module with back up camera.

2007 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

A beautiful car inside and out. A very British look makes heads turn when you drive it. Smooth powerful engine that gets excellent gas mileage - typically 28mpg highway driving. Navi system a bit difficult to use and has a great display.


Favorite Features

Classic British looks that's unique, beautiful leather interior, wonderful smooth ride. Nice and helpful parking sensors - front, sides and rear.


Suggested Improvements

Navigation system is hard to use. Turn indicators on the mirrors would be nice.

2007 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I have owned a Jaguar since 2002. I first purchased the Vanden Plas, which I still have. The just recently purchased the XJ8 LWB, which drives even better (maybe because it is newer), but never the less, the drive is smooth. The luxury is to die for and it is an overall showstopper, head rocker. This car is not cheap on the wallet, but classy in the street and when you need to get there, (your there). If it is luxury you want, this Jaguar is what you need, if you are worried about your wallet a (Pinch Buggy) is what you need. The question is which is more important, for me it was the drive, the look and the dependability, and Jaguar has all of these.


Favorite Features

Bluetooth, navigation system, leather, burl wood trim inside, the crisp, clean and business look outside and the lamb floor mats.


Suggested Improvements

Make the front of the XJ8 as is on the S-type, but make it BOLDER, so when the Jaguar comes down the road, there is no mistaken it for any thing else, like the original Jaguar from 1990- 2001.

2007 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

It may not appeal to the more contemporary types, but the Jaguar XJ8 is the most satisfying luxury sedan money can buy. It has style, it has ultra-luxury and comfort, it has unshakable ride quality, a silky-smooth 300hp V8 mated to a fantastic six-speed automatic, and all the features anyone would ever want or need. All in all, if you don't want your average BMW or Mercedes, this is the car to get.


Favorite Features

Ultra-soft seats, British charm, powertrain, gorgeous


Suggested Improvements

Put in a backup camera

2007 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased a 2007 XJ VP and find this car to be an absolute joy to drive. For the first time in owning most other prestige makes, I have finally found a vehicle that I am proud to own. The XJ VP interior is total comfort and the finish quality is unbeatable. Despite its size, the 300 HP V8 and all-alloy body makes this car surprisingly quick and it handles almost like a sports car. Thank you Jaguar! After so many years I am enjoying the experience of driving again.


Favorite Features

Fabulous quality interior. Air suspension. No road noise. Great rear leg room on the VP.


Suggested Improvements

Better sound system.
