"I bought this car with 23K miles in 2000. I change the oil on 3Kmi.It has over 223,0000 mi.and I don't even think of replacing it. It is an instrument, built by FORD, and it has endured my heavy foot which really likes a supercharger when needed. Maintenance was originally expensive when I used the dealer, which has an obvious desire to keep customers happy and less wealthy, but a knowledgeable mechanic can save plenty nowadays. Replaced the trans. years ago but overall average maintenance. Rotating and alignment is a must. It is very reliable, beautiful, and still makes me know that I am driving something special. Handling is comfort in hand. My next car may be another of the same with less miles, but who knows when that might be? This vintage with its (undeserved) reputation will be a good buy."

A real Beauty!

"This is a car that was made for the open highway-it LOVES to run FAST. A comfortable ride with interior appointments that were just right. The driver panel has all the gadgets in easy reach with touch-access on the steering wheel for the radio and speed control. The back seat was quite comfortable and roomy for passengers and featured rear-AC vents for added comfort. Mechanically, there were a few issues in the early years of ownership but the Jaguar coverage and service was excellent. Biggest negative was with the stability control-it repeatedly 'went-out'. I finally determined it was not really required for safety so I ignored the 'panel-light' and kept driving with no issue."

"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!"
