Wonderful Brit Ride
By Preston on
1998 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Convertible
Purchased the XK8 used, after correcting a few neglected maintenance items the car drives, rides and runs excellent. I have taken several long trips of 8 hrs in a day and found comfort to exceed expectations. Fuel economy on the road exceeds 25 MPG. As a used car it is an excellent value! I've had 3 Jags in the past, this is the best including XKEs.
Style is superb, interior excellent. Noise level is very low with top up. Top mechanicals work excellently, not your typical Jag of the past. Accelerates well from dead stop but not an exotic like a Maserati.
Cup holders are real bad, knobs to adjust seats. On board telephone is a waste use the space for better features. Top booth attachments when the top is down.
