"Other than depreciation, it's a vehicle you can keep for a long time. Good performance, comfort, mpg, distinctive style and easy to care for. Always love its old/distinctive look. Wish its old look stays, just to be different from all the other cars. Super comfort for long haul. After initial a/c and front brake rotor repair under warranty, it's been trouble free at 45K miles."
"I have driven this beauty for the last 2 years and I love it. Gas mileage is not great with the premium fuel to boot but the car is so beautiful, drives like a dream and has plenty of room in the back for my big family. My 6'8" father fits in the back seat as well as the front, a first for him. The Vanden Plas extras are noticeable with the fine interior and the lovely lines. We all love the little "grey poupon" pull out trays in the backseat attached to the back side of the driver and passenger seats. I love this car, compliments every day!"
"This car has been rated by a dealer mechanic as having one of the best engines made by Jaguar . Its transmission and drive train very dependable. Mechanics have stated it has a longer life than a human being. I bought the car at 60000 miles and have owned the car for 15 years. It is a jewel.
The car has some minor scratches and dents."
"I have owned this car over twelve years. It has been the most reliable and inexpensive to maintain (average yearly) that I have ever owned. Comfortable, handles well, and constantly gets compliments!"
"I bought this car from my daughter 10 years ago. But before I did it I test drove same year and comparative models of Lexus, BMW, and MBZ. This car drove as nice, was quieter, and smoother riding than any of the others. A classic Jag look. Solid, no liquid leaks, continuous compliments...still."
