Pros: "Great Hwy fuel milage,20-24mpg from it's 300HP eng"

Cons: "cup holders in armrest suck,should just be armrest"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I Love my Jag.It's a beautiful newer red metallic paint with a grey/tan interior.The only really negative part is the armrest/cupholder are poorly designed.Should have just kept it as an armrest.The oil cooler lines tend to leak as does the power steering hose.Other than that the car is great with the straight six cylinder pumping out 300 bhp. Stay away from the V8,XJ8.Notorious for leaking valve cover gaskets which is a major job and one that cant be avoided.You must change every "O"Ring and gasket because just thinking that you can get away with partial parts replacement will just cause an unhappy customer and you'll have to do it again if he lets you.The inline six cylinder is bulletproof and the rear end differential is geared for smooth highway cruising at low rpm AND GREAT GAS mileage!!!"

driver's side

"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."
