"Bought it w/ 144,000 on her and she still exudes class, style and luxury. Have taken her on the road several times in the 4 - 5 months since and its a very comfortable ride. It's my daily car and handles well in city driving. Gets better mpg than I expected for a 8 cylinder, especially w/ the power. . ."

"2004 Jaguar XJ8, 4 door sedan. White exterior, cream colored leather interior with rich dark wood grain trim. A true status symbol of success. Always in-style, provides a smooth, luxurious ride. Meticulously cared for."

"Bought it to be kind to my body after many years getting into and out of Corvettes. The car spoiled me. Many creature comforts. Jag did not cut any corners when they designed it. Quiet, comfy, very fuel efficient (33+ on the road.) I arrive at my destination ready to go! I have kept records of all mileage and repairs."

"I typically get another car every 3-4 years. I've had this car for 8 years and continue to enjoy it like when first purchased. It looks and drives just like new."

"This car was built during ford ownership. The car was under warranty when the throttle body needed replacement, but Jag did it at no cost. I drive 70 miles daily because of job-highway miles. I bought the car with 34K miles and it currently has 137K miles. During this over 100K miles, I have had to replace the cooling recovery tank and water pump. I put brakes and plugs in it at about 90K. I have bought about 6 tires and change the oil myself about every 5k. It would put all this at about 4K-not bad for 100k of usage."
