2007 Jaguar XK-Series XKR XKR 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

This is my 3rd Jaguar. First was Xk8. 2nd xj8. Bought this used with 18k miles in pristine shape. I drive it like I stole it. Paint still awsome. Runs like the cat it is. Replaced front bushings, guck bill a/c prob, couple lil things and at 65k miles. I love it more every second. 10th of a second faster than the XKR with a hundred more ponies to 60mph. Interior more classy IMO. I think this is the best jag ever made. No intention of selling it.

2007 Jaguar XK-Series XKR XKR 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I purchased by 2007 XKR Coupe with 77,000 miles in good condition Nov 2015. within the first month needed $500 in maintenance for supercharger pulleys and belts because they started to rattle... fine. Then in February after hitting multiple a potholes, the front suspension was leaking, busted both front tires and bent both rims. On a high performance coupe why did the put 20 inch low profile tires to only be fitted on this car? Suspension, bearings, 1 new rim 1 fixed rim, and 2 new tires, road force balancing, and alignment; TOTAL $6000 TO COMPLETE THE FRONT END AT A AUTHORIZED JAGUAR DEALER AND THE STEERING STILL WAS CRAP AND MAKING NOISES. I have taken the car back over 10 times to the dealer to try to find the problem as they continue to try new things. Their mechanics are obviously just as crap.it has been 8 months taking the car back and forth because the steering and drive has been horrible ever since. Th next issue was at 83000 THE ENGINE BLEW LEAVING ME ON THE SIDE OF A HIGHWAY AND THEY HAVE NO EXPLANATION. OIL WAS CHANGED 6000 MILES AGO AND THEY ADVISED I WOULD ONLY NEED A OIL CHANGE EVERY 8000-10000 MILES.... TOTAL CRAP!!!!TOTAL PRICE OF A REPLACED ENGINE WAS $7000. The water reservoir also started to leak $450, the headliner on a 2007 car already has fallen $600. Front grill that is only snapped in pops out all the time and finally it came off on the highway $200. Rear axle snapped clean in half $400. Speaker system is crap, and the tweeter grilles have popped out. Bluetooth only recognizes certain frequencies and not all so my phone is not compatible, and when it can work its for calls only no audio or media sharing. As of today ALL 4 RIMS ARE BENT THEY ARE CRAP! Rear glass cover always falls down and then finally the clamps cracked and broke off. the heated seats stopped working. the seat adjustment makes you feel like your in a convertible because they don't go back far enough and I'm only 5"10. On the good side the car looks absolutely stunning in profile it always has people stop and look. The drive and power and sound are exotic at its best. The sound can be heard a block away and is beautiful. But jaguar dealers are horrible in luxury standards in service and repairs are over the top for poor quality. This is a ford product with bells. the newer Jags owned by Tata will definitely be a better buy. I love what this car does... but i hate its quality and reliabilty. I would never recommend purchasing this model. save the headache and buy a CL Mercedes or the new Jaguar FType that's all new built if you have the $$$

2007 Jaguar XK-Series XKR XKR 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I was seriously looking at the Aston Martin V8, because of it's better looks, but after a test drive it was clear: the XKR is by far a better car. It handles great and shifting gear is much prettier.


Best Features

Gearshift paddles, gearbox. Interior is complete and well thought. Steady like a rock on the road, stiff body because of the new aluminum bodyworks.


Worst Features

The touchscreen with electronics is absolutely fantastic. BUT: the radio receiver part is terrible. The quality is bad not worthy for such high class car.

2007 Jaguar XK-Series XKR XKR 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I absolutely love my XK convertible! I truly underestimated the fun factor of having a convertible that the top goes up or down in 18 seconds... so fast you can put it down at a light. In Alabama where I live, I get 10 mos of top down weather. It is also a head turner... looking like nothing else on the street (except now it's new sister the XF sedan). It is great for a road trip... it's very adjustable seating lends itself to comfortable driving. I've leased this vehicle, but will most likely buy it at the end of the term. Drive it, you'll fall in love!


Best Features

Fast hydraulic top, no boot, heated seats, CATS suspension,


Worst Features

Bowers & Wilkins Stereo, iPod interface

2007 Jaguar XK-Series XKR XKR 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I LOVE this car, it's beautiful inside and out, fast, and handles great. I have never had a problem of any kind with this car. The XKR is fast, not the fastest, but still plenty fast and yet still manages to ride extremely well. I have never driven a car with better handling, or that is more fun to drive. The only flaw with the car that i can find is that mine has one of the ridiculous antennas, but they thankfully got rid of that for 2008.


Best Features

Looks, handling, power, luxury features, interior.


Worst Features

Jaguar/Range Rover known for electrical issues, touch screen could be faster.
