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


Review

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.


Best Features

The power, smooth ride, and great looks of the car make so much fun to drive. love the 19 inch wheels, and the sound system is great.


Worst Features

Get the cassette rack out of the trunk, automatic tonneau cover and XM radio. Have seen complaints about the gas mileage, but it gets 12 mpg more than my Tahoe!

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Styling and performance.


Worst Features

Definitely made for smaller folks. Needs more headroom. The seats are too narrow.

Review

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!


Best Features

smooth, feminine lines with fast driving power, as wel as an engine that will purr as you drive it (stroke) because it likes to be driven!


Worst Features

Don't change the body for a while & put the big spare tire back in the trunk, instead of the smaller one on the 04's. Believe me, we don't need that much trunk space, over a larger, standard size tire it used to hold (also keeps us from going back to get it taken off & switched out.)

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Styling, styling, styling!! The acceleration and handling are amazing - the car appears to be glued to the road. Seats are comfortable. I love the J-gate transmission box! Classical dashboard with Jaguar racing green display.


Worst Features

I'm 6 feet tall and find acceleration / braking pedal locations somewhat uncomfortable. My right knee keeps hitting the "Jaguar" keychain hanging from the ignition. Little room inside for CDs, maps, etc. Steering column audio control, incredibly, doesn't have "Forward" button.
