2000 Jaguar XJR 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Powerful Supercharged 370 HP engine, mated with a great tranny and suspension.


Suggested Improvements

It would have been nice if Jaguar would have accepted some of the cost for replacing the instrument cluster at 48K miles.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Performance, surprisingly funny handling, design, comfort


Suggested Improvements

RELIABILITY!!!!!! Trunk size.

Review

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!!


Favorite Features

Engine performance, looks.


Suggested Improvements

More rear leg room, smoother ride.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Like driving a piece of jewelry while sitting on a very comfortable chair.


Suggested Improvements

More headroom. More responsive steering.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The seats and the supercharger. Oh yeah, the steering wheel wood and leather is a great combo.


Suggested Improvements

Stereo still not as good as I like.
