Great car IF you can afford maintenance
By bcoreilly on

1997 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Convertible
Review
It's a great car, and a lot of fun to drive. The exterior design is timeless and really does turn heads. But despite its exterior beauty and superior performance, it has drawbacks. The interior is cramped, and the back seats are laughably small - only small children or people with no legs could comfortably fit. My particular XK8 was fairly reliable until about a year ago, but now it's killing me with maintenance costs. When something does go wrong or require maintenance, expect to pay significantly more than you'd pay for a GM or Toyota.
Favorite Features
One of the most beautiful exterior car designs of all time. Great handling, acceleration, and performance. Fuel economy is quite good relative to the engine's power. It is a pleasure to drive when it's working well.
Suggested Improvements
With about 87,000 miles on it, this car is killing me in maintenance costs. Also, interior is cramped and back seats useless.
