2004 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


It's tough to beat buying a luxury car that sold for $65,000 for less than $30,000 with only 27,000 miles on it. I've owned 12 cars in my driving life and this is by far the nicest. It's quick and super comfortable. The ride is on the softer side however for every day driving and some fun on the weekends you can't beat it. The reliability has been great so far. Compared to the 745 from 2004 there are some definite differences in size and ride however they cost at least $10,000 more for a comparable car. Not worth it in my mind. All cars are worthless in the end.

Best Features

Seats, smooth ride, leather wrapped everything, solid handling, great acceleration. I'm averaging 21 mpg with a 300hp V8 under the hood. You can beat it.

Worst Features

Tighten up the interior a bit. Some creaks and rattles have show up recently. A bit firmer suspension, or the option to select a sport suspension mode would be a nice touch.
