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


Review

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 !!!!


Best Features

looks and feel


Worst Features

must upgrade the secondary tensioners to metal (cost aout $850 total at Import shop)Factor that into your purchase price and you are Golden as you can find one for under $15,000

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


Review

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!


Best Features

Pure Style, Comfort and Pleasure!


Worst Features

Tighten up the steering.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Smoothest acceleration, especially in the 60-90 envelope.


Worst Features

Wish I could get an updated DVD for the nav system.

Review

I have experienced zero problems with
this car - it is well constructed and
has a high quality feel to all parts.
It has exceptional power and handles
corners as if it were on rails.
All instruments are easily viewed and
the driver and passenger compartments
are comfortable though not spacious -
there is adequate headroom. I miss
certain features that were included in
the XJS, particularly the automatic
side mirror tilt when reversing - the
reverse sensors compensate but not
completely. There are numerous blind
spots when reversing.
"Back seat" is almost useless except
for bags, jackets and obviously
insurance rates. Overall, this is the
best performing and constructed car I
have owned


Best Features

Road handling and power are excellent


Worst Features

Automatic tilt side mirrors when reversing to assist with blind spots

Review

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!


Worst Features

Take a cue from Porsche, the Corvette, and the NSX and get some seats that are firm, yet comfortable. ford owns Aston Martins...the seats in the Aston are terrific...Jag should borrow from the Aston parts bin...
