The New 2011 Jaguar XJ Supercharged
Pros: The 470 Horsepower of sheer elegance and guts
Cons: It would be nice to have a real instrument cluster, but heh, we live in a world of graphics.Wow, what a car. This is the first time a bought a car sight unseen. The car far exceeds my expectations. I previously owned a 1998 XJL. Yes, I had problems with the 1998 but Jag fixed them all without a fuss (including replacing the transmission). The 2011 is far superior in interior materials and design. The new exterior is very striking and worthy of a car of this stature. The 470 HP is very responsive and gutsy. For the weight/HP ration, the car screams performance. On the highway, it certainly provide good gas mileage. I am averaging 18 combined. The are minor glitches but nothing to gripe about. Yes, I would buy this car again. Overall, I love the looks, stance and interior. My true test is that I enjoy washing the car every weekend to admire the 'cat' for all perspectives. It doens't meow, but growls with purrfection.
