XJ Offspring is wonderful!

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


My wife inherited a XJ12C that I eventually restored. I was aware of some of the older Jaguar "mythology". As I restored this vehicle, the craftsmanship and engineering made an impression on me; however, the design and styling were the best. After learning this older Jag, we could not stray too far from the classic style and comfort of Jaguar. The 2006 XJ L is a remarkable vehicle. We have experienced fuel economy greater than 25 mpg on the road, in some cases very close to 30 mpg. The nimble comfortable ride make this vehicle a treat to drive.

Best Features

Acceleration and nimbleness. Road noise quieting. Rear bumper distance sensors.

Worst Features

Wheels are difficult to maintain clean -- reduce spokes. Improve rear seat comfort.
