Lousy Seats
By socalh2oskier on


2001 Jaguar XK-Series XKR 2dr Coupe (4.0L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Gorgeous car. The engine is smooth and powerful, and the interior is terrific! BUT, the seats are terrible. I would expect seats that are firm but comfortable, with good lower back support and stiff side bolsters to hold you in place around corners. Instead, Jag uses soft, uncomfortable seats that deny a driver the pleasure of experiencing the car's capabilities...Try to going around a corner at anything but granny speed and you'll end up on the other side of the car!

Worst Features

Take a cue from Porsche, the Corvette, and the NSX and get some seats that are firm, yet comfortable. ford owns Aston Martins...the seats in the Aston are terrific...Jag should borrow from the Aston parts bin...
