Deferred Dream Realized
Pros: The magnificently tuned ride and suspension.
Cons: Have yet to discover anything I don't like.As a member of the college graduate class of 1967, I saw myself as soon earning 10K a year and driving an XKE, but there was the war in Viet Nam, then law school, then family and always something that took priority. Forty years later the XKE had been long replaced by the XK8: well worth the wait!
Pros: everything...........(interior and exterior, lots of pep)
Cons: glove box sometimes gets stuck open.This car was given to me for my 60th birthday. In college my father let me drive his Jag and always wanted another one. This is the nicest and best looking car I have ever had the pleasure to own. Thank you dear sweet husband!
Luxo vs Sportiness
Pros: Comfortable ride on a sports car frame.
Cons: lack of performance sound at low RPM.My Jaguar XF is a break through in car design. It sorta looks like other cars in it class but after a few minutes with it, You can tell its unique. It really does a have the luxo feel but really adds the sporty performance. Most cars in its class are either to much sporty or to much luxo but not right in the middle. I would recommend it to anybody who wants all the comfort features but who also wants to enjoy a weekend free spirit drive.
Love my Jag
Pros: Looks and performance.
Cons: NothingI have a 2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged and love everything about it. It is the third Jaguar that I have owned since 2007 and is as good or better than any that I have owned. I will have to say that my 2007 XK had to be the sportiest of any and I still miss that car but the performance and acceleration of this car is breathtaking.
Best car I ever owned(
Pros: Perfect paint job was bulletproof and aroma of fine leather
Cons: The fact that this style of car is no longer available from JaguarThis little AWD jag was the most appealing car I ever owned. Paint job unsurpassed.Styling superb. Connolly hides sumptuous and always smelled of fine leather. Fantastic interior lighting. Beautiful dash and woodwork. Ergonomic seats. Comfortable, secure ride. Service at dealership first rate. What more could you ask for? The chance to buy this same car new again. Sadly discontinued. Always turn my head if I see one pass by.
Pros: The paddle shifting is revolutionary. The handling is sure and forgiving. It is quiet inside.
Cons: The seat will not recline enough for me to be comfortable & is too narrow in the shoulders.
Advice: If all they have is black and grayThe Jaguar has a quiet roar which betrays a well-bred confidence. It is a gentlemen's car without being quite tame. It trounces without showing off. The new 5 litre V-8 in the 2010 is very responsive and can get 24 mpg on the highway. I have never seen a car merit such reverent attention and respect.
Advice: Get one before they're goneThe XJR has fantastic performance, classic good looks, and is fabulously comfortable. A sports car in a sport sedan disguise
