2003 Jaguar XK-Series XKR XKR 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

The XKR is a touring car, not a race car. People often get caught up in statistics when evaluating cars in this category. The XKR is heavier than other sports cars so it is slower in 0-60 times and around a track. You do get something though from the weight - leather and wood everywhere. Sitting in an XKR is a thrill in itself let alone driving it. And it is plenty fast with 400bhp. There are some quirks and design flaws on the XKR that you wouldn't find on a German car but the XKR seethes passion unlike its rivals. It is gorgeous to look at and a very rare car, the coupe especially; people will stare. In short, when I feel like getting out of town for a weekend, this car is perfect.


Best Features

Styling. 4.2 liter supercharged engine.


Worst Features

Some minor quality issues.

2003 Jaguar XK-Series XKR XKR 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

This car has changed my life,liturally!
I no longer stress in traffic jams, I
have the convertible top up or down
with ONE touch of a button,I feel safe
and it almost drives itself. Their are
features to let you know how far you
are behind and in front of and obstacle
with a ring of a ascending bell. My
trunk is HUGE, holds 2 sets of golf
clubs and ALL the Holiday Shopping I
can do in one day! I look forward to
going to the store a quick errand. When
I drive I am wrapped in Performance and
Luxury.


Best Features

I love all the toys, gadgets, buttons and the sound system. I feel like I'm at a concert in Carnegie Hall. The body style is sleek and unmatched by any other automobile. I truly LOVE it.


Worst Features

CD player inside car. It is so inconvenient in the trunk.

Review

I just had my 2003XKR break down while
I on a trip. My steering went out.
Jahuar does not keep replacement parts!
They kept telling me "next day" stories
on when it would be fixed. After almost
three weeks I got the car back. Now I
am getting the roal run around on what
they promised to reimbusement for
travel to get back home. Beware...this
company wants to sell you a car, but
does not live up to any of the after
the sale promises. Its' always a story
as to why someone else gave you wron
information.


Worst Features

Tell the truth..if they don't have the parts. Let the comsumer know that repair times are going to be extended and deal with you fairly!

Review

OK, so I'm biased. I'm a Brit, work
both in the US and the UK - but the XKR
is the second I've had - and the 2003
model is my latest purchase for my UK
travels. I've driven stacks of
different and very nice cars - but
something just keeps me in these
Jaguars. Perhaps it's the feeling that
any moment the waiter will come over
and ask if sir would care for another
Pimm's.. All that leather and walnut
combined with neck snapping
acceleration make this a seriously
quick tool for demolishing distances in
style, grace and comfort. I guess
(proudly) it's something that us Brits
still do well


Best Features

6 speed Auto box is a dream and far better than the old 5 speed. CATS with the 20in wheels transforms the handling of the car from sharp knife to scalpel.


Worst Features

More footwell space (only 1/2 inch needed) with better pedal heights for those of us over 6 foot tall and with big feet! Ban the use of cup holders in this car - all owners should sign a pledge to maintain the standards...!
