2008 Jaguar XK-Series XKR 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

Bought a certified used XKR convertible with 9220 miles, 6/100k warranty, and the Jag special financing. I've owned Mercedes SL, Boxster, Audi, and other luxury automobiles. This vehicle is the perfect blend of all of them. Great ride, neat exhaust notes, unbelievable sound system, and OMG - the power. Does not handle like the mid-engine Boxster, but a small inconvenience. Did I really get nearly 27 MPG on the interstate?! One thing is for sure, the Mini Cooper drivers won't be waving at me!


Best Features

Power, sound system, comfort, and fantastic styling.


Worst Features

I know the 2011 model year remedied some of the 2008 shortcomings (mp3, improved touch-screen interface, etc)so I knew what I bought and it's okay.

2008 Jaguar XK-Series XK 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

My 2006 Cayman was rough, cramped and edgy. I love my new Jag; it has decent performance, good manners and is one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen. I have discovered that it handles and drives better when being pushed. The fact that I paid about the same for the Jag as the poor man's Porsche is a bonus. The left over 2009s are a great buy if you can find one.


Best Features

sport mode transmission feature with paddle shifters, leather dash and door panels, exhaust note, 525 watt stereo, 27 MPG on the road, the way people stare with their jaws dropped


Worst Features

the 2010s have more power; good move

2008 Jaguar XK-Series XK 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Great car, the coupe design and look is as close to an old E-Type as anyone will get. Love it like my 911, but much easier to commute - and not an ounce of harsh highway ride. Light, fast, beautiful and good mileage. The coupe is just stunning.


Best Features

Everything at this point


Worst Features

Style, ride, design -- drives and looks like a modern E-Type. What could be better in life.

2008 Jaguar XK-Series XK 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Traded in a 2 year old Carrera with many, many problems for a more beautiful car. Although not the handling of the Porsche, this is a true GT with plenty of room, comfortable ride, and admirable get-up-and-go.


Best Features

Sat radio, keyless entry/start. Beautiful exterior design. You keep looking back to get another look.


Worst Features

Cargo management system of some sort. Temperature , oil and other engine status gauges.

2008 Jaguar XK-Series XKR 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I just picked up my brand new 08 XKR convertible, and it is a blast!! In my opinion, it is the best looking car for under 100k. I am glad I got this over the 6 series. It has great performance and great sound! I get looks from everybody. My son loves to drive it as well.


Best Features

ASL - limits how fast you can go (helpful for staying under the speed limit), looks, interior materials, wheels, "S" mode, comfort and a lot more.


Worst Features

Make more room in the back - no normal sized human can fit in the back (possibly an infant). Trunk space could be a little bigger. It's very low to the ground - I already scratched the bumper going down my driveway.
