2006 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I am back to Jag. It is like coming home to that smooth, comfortable and quite ride. Besides the XJ8's unmistakable classy exterior design, it offers the most beautiful interior on the market today. With its 300HP, this car can preform as well. It is tight and quick on it's feet. Great performance with a remarkable average of 19.4 MPG (mostly city driving). This is my third Jag since Y2000, and I can tell you these cars are extremely dependable! Do not make the same mistakes by straying away to the other luxury brands. Wow, it's great to be home!


Best Features

Dependability, gas mileage, classic design, power, and overall driving. Experience

2006 Jaguar XJ-Series Super V8 Portfolio 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

The 2006 XJ Super V8 Portfolio is my 6th Jaguar and by far the best and my previous 5 Jaguars were terrific. MB says that the S550 is a rocket ship. Not true. My wife owns an S550 and I can say from experience the 2006 Super V8 Portfolio is the true rocket ship.


Best Features

Power plant, interior, exterior, rear seat entertainment center, laser guided cruise control and 20" wheels.


Worst Features

Rear view camera.

2006 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Recently bought a 2006 VDP which came fully loaded. The car is an absolute treat to drive, with a responsive, powerful engine that still gives good gas mileage. It is quiet and smooth, yet can take corners at speed. The interioir is a place of calm and comfort. I like this car very much.


Best Features

Aluminium body gives better responsiveness, braking and gas mileage. The heated wheel is neat.


Worst Features

Change the shifter.

2006 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I absolutely love this car. I have always thought it one of the most beautiful avaialable cars, but with the redesigns and the increased head room, they are there. She is quiet, quick, incredibly nimble for a big car, and flat out nice to be in.


Best Features

The list is too long to go through.


Worst Features

Satellite radio needs to be part of the stereo, not a dealer installed option.

Review

I have driven Jags all my life and every time I buy a new one it only gets better, I now own a Super V8 and wow the power, the luxury - absolutely awesome. I would love to see in the next generation XJ a backup camera, to me this is all that is missing. The car is fun to drive, plenty of power and just so British, fit for a king. If you are thinking of owning one, go test drive one, before you waste your money on other luxury models, you won't be sorry. Happy motoring and enjoy.


Best Features

Navigation, voice commands and electric rear seats.


Worst Features

Back up camera.
