"I have owned most major brands, Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, Porsche, Volvo, Corvette, Cadillac, Lincoln and others. This jaguar has so impressed me that I now own three of them. I own an XK8 convertible and an S Type sedan. This XJ8L is still my favorite. It handles well, looks good, is very comfortable and has been reliable and easy to maintain. I highly recommend them."

"While stationed at the USN submarine base aboard an operating submarine in New London Conn back in the late 60s , I bought a 1954 Jaguar XK120 from a shipmate who had just gotten married and needed money. I immediately fell in love with this now legendary car......the unmistakeable sound of its engine and exhaust....the uniqueness which is what Jaguars are all about. A few months back I had the good fortune to acquire a 2003 XJR super sedan. Wow ! in Anthracite with black leather interior in near mint condition with only 38000 miles on it ! I was astonished as to what a technological marvel had evolved from the "primitive" XK120. What I love most is that this car looks like a an older "rich guy's" elegant classic body style sedan. Don't be fooled . This car is an absolute monster when the supercharger cuts in and flogs 375 horsepower with incredible torque out of a relatively small 4 Liter block. Now I know what it must feel like to be a rhesus monkey on a rocket sled. My god this car is fast !Shockingly fast ! One must remember though, that much like a luxury boat , maintenance is expensive.I'm a "motor head" and a reasonably good mechanic. I bought the full service manual on line and quickly realized how much there is out of the scope of amateur mechanics abilities with unique and special test equipment required along with complex maintenance procedures . Don't even think, for example, of having its Mercede Benz transmission worked on at AMMCO . This is a "trophy car"for me that will never see bad weather that I plan to have for a long time. I give it all 10s because that's what it is in my opinion. Give yourself a treat and buy one"

"I have owned it since last 18 months and have driven it around 11000 miles without any issues. It takes premium gas but returns really good fuel economy 18/26 city/highway. Has good looks in and out, impressive interior that makes you feel special. It does not have bells and whitsles those you will find on a Merc or BMW with same price range vehicles. Like my car does not have front parking sensors, no bluetooth connectivity.... strange."

"I bought the car a year ago from a Jaguar entusiast who had tended to every little mechanical and cosmetic issue, and rigorously maintained it. I have carried on with the policy of frequent oil changes, regular service, and keeping it meticulously clean outside and inside. I continue to marvel at the silent, silky ride, plenty of power, and plethora of features which make the occupants as comfortable as is possible in any autombile. This car represents the best example of how to keep a Jaguar happy and hearty. (Treat it like you would a beautiful woman and it will reward you with all your heart's desires.)"
