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.

    For 2001, there are standard child seat-anchor points for the rear seats and a reverse parking-control system. The premium audio system…

Great choice for free

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

I had had all real makes, and this one rocks, bought it for $13,000 with 55k on it, replaced the tensioners straight away with metal ones as this is the only issue with this car. Bought an amazing sports car for free basically, cant even get a Kia for this price, highly recommended !!!!




Xkr - simply the best!

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

I previously owned a 1998 XK8 and after totaling it I felt like I lost one of my children! I do love this car. Now I own a 2001 XKR and it's just tweaked enough to make the XK8 even better. Sorry they discontinued this body style. It's sleek without being overdone. It's macho yet feminine. The curves are a woman, the power and the hood design are a man. What better combo in styling? I can get 21 mph easily. NOT BAD!!! My only criticism is the steering. It is so fine that if you look to the left you can easily be there without meaning to. That being said...no one drives my car but me and Hubby! Driving is pure pleasure even on travel trips of 10 hours. Go Buy One!

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.

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.
