"I have owned this car for the past 8 years and can't say enough good things about it. It continues to meet my every expectation for reliability and driving comfort. I continue to get compliments on its color, sleek lines and comfortable ride. It has become a real "babe" magnet in my retirement years and I'm enjoying the attention."

East Texas Jag!

"After hearing negative reliability reports on Jaguars for years, I decided if I was going to own one before it was too late, I had better get with it! Simply stated, this is the most "fun to drive" auto I have ever owned and after 60 years of driving I have owned quite a few! Yes, there have been a few repairs but then all cars have to have repairs from time to time! Other than normal maintenance repairs, batteries, tires, etc. the only major repair has been an air conditioning compressor and believe an old man, Fords, Chevys, Toyotas, Hondas and even Corvettes have to have compressor replacements also! This is an "attention getter" everywhere I drive it! Great styling and looks that do not go out of style! My only regret is waiting so late in life to enjoy it! Don't be "put off" in purchasing a Jaguar if you are inclined to do so! A lot of the negative reports might be coming from people that could not afford to own and operate one in the first place!"
