Dream car

Vehicle: 2004 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Have wanted a Jag since the first time I spotted an XKE when I was a child. It's beautiful, fun and now I can't imagine not having one.




Fun to drive, the envy

Can't believe the envious looks and comments we have had. Handles very well, great styling, reasonable gas mileage. Great acceleration. Surprisingly quiet ride with the top up. Problem getting routine parts such as oil filters, etc.

I've owned this type vehicle for the past 14 years, buying annually to semi- annually. I have that much faith & love for these machines. Not much maintenance, just menial things like oil changes, filters & maybe a computer glitch this year on the transmission (first time!) Overall, because I don't have a dealership in Corpus, it still doesn't concern me much about repairs. They are all small enough to extremely enjoy this great car that sounds like it purrs when you're driving into your big garage! I love the feel, elegance, drive, reliability & social status you receive when buying this vehicle. You can't afford to miss out on this car!

This is an incredibly fun car to drive. It is an eye turner: sleek, sexy and beautiful. Driving it makes you forget the few blemishes it has.
