I love my Jag
By John on


2005 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


I have been an owner of Audi A8 and Merc CLS AMG. And I must say they both do their thing very well - separately. My AMG is wickedly fast, the A8 comfortable. But my Jag is the only car so far that does all these things well - in one handsome package. The surprise bonus is the economy; it runs more frugally than my previous A6! The aluminum frame is light and nimble, making this a fun car to drive actually. Its handling is not far off than the AMG, yet it's backseats are much more spacious. Awesome!

Best Features

Unbeatable timeless styling. Few trips to the shop and pump. DVD at the back.

Worst Features

The interior build quality can be more Bentley- esque. Am I asking too much?
