"We purchased this car from the Dealer's select pre-owned program. We love the look, style and comfort of the vehicle. It gets the same mpg on the hiway as a VW beetle -- 24mpg, and is much more comfortable. Other than routine maintenance, we have not had any major problems. Although we have replaced the timing chain tensioners as recommended on various forums."

"I loved my xj8 sport. It was a smooth ride and drive. I felt like I was floating when I was on the road. If I could find another 2002 xj8 sport in the right color and in excellent condition with a reasonable price. I would invest."

"A wonderful vehicle in every way; appearance, power, handling, etc. I hate to trade it in but because it is build so well and I don't know when I will need a new one so since it is 17 years old I just want a new vehicle. Good bye old friend!"
