"these cars are styled by the same designer as the Aston DB9, built in the same factory and using the same technology as the Aston with far lower operating costs due to a bullet proof engine. I have owned at least 10 jags in my life and this is the best one."
"First, this car is strikingly beautiful. Wide track with huge tires all around, it looks like it's doing 100 sitting still. It's as fast as it looks and lives up to it's looks. The paddle shifters are a blast to use. They rev the engine up between shifts as if it were a manual transmission. I've had this car on the track a few times and it screams and handles like a race car. Fit & finish are superb. I love this car."
Pros: "Definitely a blast to drive and it looks great."
Cons: "Lack of trunk space and other amenities"

"While the XK is a very quick, stable, and great looking car to drive, it has a couple of serious shortcomings for a car at this price. First, there is an icon on the steering column that would seem to indicate there is voice activated controls. That IS what it does on other XK models, but not the Touring Convertible model - it just mutes the audio system. Next, there is a button to "Load" discs on the CD player, however, the standard equipment is a single disc CD player - the button has NO function. Another shortcoming is the lack of a blind spot monitor. My other Jaguar (an 09 XF) has it, but this newer, more expensive model doesn't. And last, but not least, don't plan on taking any golf clubs with you on a trip. They won't fit in the trunk unless you take them out of the bag and lay them in at an angle. Really? I could put 2 golf bags and a clothing bag in my 07 Corvette."
Pros: "Beauty, Power, and Luxury at the same time!"
Cons: "Blue Tooth connectivity to play Music"

"The 2011 XK Convertible has stunning beauty when you see it passing you by. Heads turn no matter where I go. The car does not have the rough sports car ride but it has more than enough power to feel like a super fast sports car. The drive in it is excellent and for a convertible you do not feel squished in it. It is roomy and very comfortable for 2 people with enough trunk space for a large suitcase. The only blemish on it, the XK's Bluetooth only allows calls unless you hook up the old Ipod connector not the new Lightning connector for Iphone 5/6. Other than that no complaints and the free maintenance until 2016 is a blessing even though I have not had any issues at all. Superb Car all around (I was a BMW lover at heart)!!!"
"Love the car with one exception: VEHICLE DOES NOT HAVE BACKUP CAMERA. WHEN TOP IS UP NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE BEHIND.
backup camera not available aftermarket. poor engineering not to have this a stock item.
Would not buy again due to this sole reason."
"I LOVE TO DRIVE AND I LOVE THIS CAR.
Perhaps a little too much cheap plastic in the construction for the price paid but, I LOVE THIS CAR! The Bluetooth system isn't great but, I LOVE THIS CAR! With the Nav. system, you can't make adjustments to your route while in motion but, I LOVE THIS CAR! Major blind spot (right rear) but, I LOVE THIS CAR!
Did I mention that I LOVE THIS CAR?"
"Was at the MB dealer buying my wife a CLS500, saw the XKR on the floor, there was a Ferrari next to it but it looked boring, everyone that walked into the dealership looked at the XKR and ignored the Ferrari. so I bought both the MB and XKR that day. Had the XKR delivered a week ago and finally had a chance to drive it for the first time, nice!!!!!
Just a fantastic machine, hope to get in on the hwy and drive it sometime."
"30 years ago, I lost my 1967 XKE coupe in a business deal and I swore that one day I would get a Jaguar that was just as much fun to drive. Well, the XKR is that car. Faster, more powerful and responsive. Worth every penny."
"I love this car. I fell in love when i saw it on the show room floor. I used to drive an SL55 but I wanted something different. I had the dealer put a aftermarket exhaust system on it for $2,700 and it made the driving experience even better. Besides the great look of the large diameter quad pipes and the extra 60 hp, the growl of the engine is awesome.
The only negative is the suspension isn't tight enough at high speeds, resulting in to much play in the wheel. The low profile tires make pot holes painful, but thats what you get with performance."
"I bought my 2007 XK one month ago and it is the greatest car I've ever had (of many). I enjoy being seen in it, as well as just the pure enjoyment of driving it.
It handles like crazy, is great on gas mileage (20 city, 28 highway trips) and is just something special. To me, it's like having an Aston-Martin for a heck of a lot less!
I have the extended warranty to 100k miles and 6 years, though I hope to not use it. Nothing but good/great from it so far."
"Awesome performance and handling. Gorgeous styling on the outside, sumptuous on the inside! The finest quality of any automobile I have ever owned. This is my 4th Jag and it is the sexiest cat ever, purrfection on wheels!! Eat your heart out MB, Jaguar is the WINNER!"
