Remarkable value. Exceptional car

2004 Jaguar XJ-Series XJR 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


This car has to be the best value on the market. It get a respectable 24 MPG with 400 horses under the hood. This is not your dad's jag. It feels light and responsive. When you hit the sport button the throttle is very responsive and you feel extremely fast. The interior is perfect. Everything that looks like leather IS leather and everything that look like metal IS metal. Things you expect when your original sticker is $90k. Ridiculous depreciation that is mostly due to the sins of the past make this car a remarkable value. Currently the car has 85,000 miles and I've had it for 3 years. Buy an extended waranty and pat yourself on the back for buying one of the greatest cars ever.

Best Features

The Ricaro seats are very nice. You sit in the seats not on them. They hug you nicely in the corners. Adaptive cruise control is very reliable. I set it for 70 MPH in 5 o'clock Houston traffic and the car reduced speed all the way to 10 MPH before finally disengaging, incredible technology.

Worst Features

Brake pads can be expensive due to a low aftermarket. $100 per wheel but they are very good and stop you when you need them to. Plan on this when you purchase the car. They last about 30-40,000 miles. There is no need for expensive dealer service on this job...go to any mechanic to have this done.
