2003 Jaguar XK-Series Convertible XK8 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Wife's Xmas present 12/05. She said she always wanted one, and she couldn't believe it when it "appeared" in the driveway 2005 Xmas a.m! She drives it everyday. This is "our" 2nd Jaguar; had an '89 XJS coupe (V12) previously - what an improvement since Ford took over. The '03 is wonderful: 4.2 engine is buttery smooth, and not as fragile as former 4.0 of earlier years' V8s. I put the XK-R wheels on it with all-season Michelins, and these work much better in winter than the 19s with Pirrelli summer/snows -- we have a lot of rough roads in Michigan. KNOW your mechanic, even if just warranty stuff. Not all dealers have "Jaguar certified" ones do work (some go out on own).


Best Features

Looks/styling, performance (for a grand tourer), prestige, and features. Wife's "blue baby" is unique in our area, and she sure has fun with that.


Worst Features

For what one looks for in a vehicle such as this, not much can be done to improve it. "Nitpicking" items: cup holders, convertible boot cover, and visibility to the rear (although not much catches up with her!).

2003 Jaguar XK-Series Convertible XK8 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Love this car for the fact that my
father had a e-type back in the 60s
and these bring me back to those
days. Jag has wonderful services
and excellent reliability.


Best Features

Love the styling and reverse park control. Also Alpine sound system sounds great.


Worst Features

A retractable hardtop.

Review

Performance and styling are outstanding.
The factory quality has declined over
the previous jaguar I had. The
interior headline is impossibile to
keep clean and the boot for the top is
antiquated.


Best Features

Styling is magnificient, power is great, easy to use top.


Worst Features

Improved build quality and body shake. Need to have an automatic boot for the top.
