Review of the 2001 Jaguar XK-Series

  • Smooth, sleek and sexy, the XK is more of a gran turismo than a true sports car.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Divine exterior shape, supercharged engine in XKR form, good balance between luxury and performance.

  • Cons

    Cramped interior space, cheap-o plastics, fussy GPS system.

  • What's New for 2001

    For 2001, there are standard child seat-anchor points for the rear seats and a reverse parking-control system. The premium audio system with a six-disc CD changer and the GPS navigation system are now standard equipment on XK8s. Topping things off are minor exterior styling changes and a new no-cost scheduled maintenance program that covers four regular service visits under the four-year/50,000-mile limited warranty.

Beautiful, reliable and still great

Vehicle: 2001 Jaguar XK-Series XKR 2dr Coupe (4.0L 8cyl S/C 5A)

Have had this vehicle for more than 7 years, and still outperforms others. Has been SUPER reliable, no mechanical, build or cosmetic issues AT ALL. Only my usual Mobil 1 oil changes.




Lousy seats

Vehicle: 2001 Jaguar XK-Series XKR 2dr Coupe (4.0L 8cyl S/C 5A)

Gorgeous car. The engine is smooth and powerful, and the interior is terrific! BUT, the seats are terrible. I would expect seats that are firm but comfortable, with good lower back support and stiff side bolsters to hold you in place around corners. Instead, Jag uses soft, uncomfortable seats that deny a driver the pleasure of experiencing the car's capabilities...Try to going around a corner at anything but granny speed and you'll end up on the other side of the car!
