Back from Benz
By CBuck on


2004 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Had some Jags, went to Benzs but they feel sterile and cold. Now back to Jags and I have been very pleased. Six years old and still a head turner getting lots of unsolicited compliments. No car draws like a Jag. 32 MPG on a 400 mile highway trip (70+MPH). I use the recommended premium on trips but regular around town. These are a bargain on the used market. Paid $18,000 for a beautiful car with only 43,000 miles. For that price I could have been stuck in a new econobox.

Best Features

Looks, ride, class, interior, power. I forgot how much fun a V8 can be. This 2004 Jag has more hi-tech gadgets than my 2006 Benz did.

Worst Features

Nav is dated and a just to get a new disk is more expensive than a entirely new Garmin system.
