1998 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan


So many people like to put down Jaguars, the car not the cat, I would bet good money few of them have owned one or even sat in one, I know my car is knocking on the door of it's 10th year, but you couldn't tell by driving it, the interior is still pretty fresh and I like to look at the car too. I feel like I'm driving an $80,000 car, I know it's only $6000 now, but the luxury feel does not fly away as quick as the forecourt price.

Best Features

Speed when you need it, you hear the Jaguar roar. Looks great when it's just been polished.

Worst Features

Easy access to the little bulbs in the facia and window controls, it's a shame to see dead lights, you just know if you dig your screwdriver in it's going to damage something. Rear bumpers tend to come loose and it's not easy to get in to fix.
