This is a long term ownership review. It had around 42,000 miles on the odometer at the time of purchase. Be sure you're ready to pay the "Jag tax" for ownership. In other words it is very expensive to maintain. Don't get me wrong, I love this car, but certain items of normal maintenance are expensive: Catalytic converters: $2400, tires, $1200, cooling system repairs, $$, depending on what you have to do. Brakes, $1000 unless you have Brembo, then it's double that number. Given the cost of ownership, if you find one that has had much of this done, or are willing to fess up in the first 100k miles, you too can really have a fun, classy, powerful ride.

As a jaguar enthusiast, I love my XJR. Amazing accelerations, fun to drive and the look!! The most beautiful sedan design. But in 6 months, the car has worked well only 2 weeks!!! AC valve. Gasket. Electronic problems. ASC, traction control, heated seat, etc... Today it's a knock sensor!! And tomorrow?? If you have a second car, a mechanic who knows (!) Jag and a lot of Zen attitude this is a dream car.

This car really moves, but doesn't look like it. Is faster than most, looks better than most, more fun to drive than most. If you want a fast car that doubles as a head turner, than this car is for you. Had early problems with timing componets, but once repaired look out, nothing but fun!!

The company has made it difficult to deal with recalls. The reliability, especially the electronics are disappointing. The power is suspect at times as the acceleration has waned at the most inopportune times; like getting on the freeway.

What I really love is you can drive it for 4 hours and get out as if you hadn't driven at all. The car is incredibly fast and the sport mode button is very effective when needed. Many times cars have this option and it seems useless. Not the case with this car. I bought it used with 40k miles and it has been very reliable. The only complaint I have is the climate control sometimes wanders regarding temp.

A wonderful car in every way! Very
fun to drive, superb comfort, lots of
power, an extraordinarily classy car
that draws admiring stares wherever I
drive. I've had this car for three
years with nary a problem. I did rate
down on fuel economy, but then what
can you expect with a 370 hp engine?
All in all, this babe's a 10!
