1999 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Convertible

Review

I traded a 98 Porsche Boxster for a 99 Jaguar XK8 a few years ago.son I did it was to have a back seat for my kids to ride.

Unfortunately the back seat is so small only kids under 5 can fit.

Exterior:
No complaints. It's a sleek, nice design.

Interior:
Extremely difficult to enter/exit but once inside is comfortable .
The wood interior is nice but the rest is cheap, easily breakable plastic.

Mechanical:
The well-known cheaply-made plastic timing chain tensioners should have been replaced on all the XK under warranty.

Overall by no means a luxury car. Then again, I'm comparing it to an LS Lexus.

Best Features

Appearance.

Worst Features

Needs a self covering convertible top. Shouldn't have to get out of a $70,000 car to manually cover the retracted top.
