2008 Jaguar XK-Series Coupe 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.


Favorite 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


Suggested Improvements

the 2010s have more power; good move

2008 Jaguar XK-Series Coupe 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.


Favorite Features

Everything at this point


Suggested Improvements

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

2008 Jaguar XK-Series Coupe 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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

This car is incredible. It is hands down, the sexiest, best driving, daily-driving automobile made, and it is a reasonable value. I also own a SL500, and aside from the hardtop convertible, not one item holds up to the Jag. Don't be fooled by the car magazine comparisons and ratings. While the Jag holds up pretty well anyway, the tests put too much emphasis on empirical performance, and ignore what most people really care about in a car, which are good looks, and how you feel driving it. The Jag has sufficient performance, a solid, rich feel, a growl when it needs one, and is downright beautiful. You cannot walk away from this car without looking back for a double take.


Favorite Features

It's looks. It's solid feel. It's toney exhaust - when pressured.


Suggested Improvements

The F-1 paddle shifters are easy to bump when driving, and the car automatically upshifts, and then stays in sport-manual mode, until you shift the J-shift knob from D to S, and then back to D. There are also some quirky electronic stuff with the Navigation which would otherwise be perfect.
