"While I have always admired the Jaguar coupe lines I was never willing to pull the trigger and always went BMW or Mercedes instead. Well I finally got up the courage to purchase the Jag and wow. First of all the reliability isn't even close. This car has been amazing. Both the BMW and Mercedes allowed me to be on a first name basis with the entire service shop. I can see why Jag just won JD powers most reliable 3 year old car nameplate. I have been very impressed.
Beyond reliablity, it is just a treat to drive. The sound is incredible. This car just rumbles. It is hard not to drive hard just so that you can hear that Jaguar note in the exhaust. I like the coupe over the convertible though a moonroof would be a nice option."
"These cars without a doubt one of the sexiest vehicles ever produced.
With that being said,beware of the atrocious repair and reliability of this car.
At 50K the car started to burn oil at an alarming rate.The dealer said this was normal.
It turns out it needed a ring and valve job at $$$.
At 118K,the tranny is now dying and this will cost $$$.
These cars are beautiful money pits.
So buyer beware!"

"I bought my 1997 coupe about a month ago. I searched the tri state area for a coupe for about 8 months. The car cost me 16k with 77k miles on it. It is sapphire blue with a biscuit interior. The car is a TEN. Even with the repairs I had to make and the services I had to do, and the CASH I had to pay out additionally to make it my own. The car is an absolute STUNNER, STUNNER,STUNNER! I noticed people wont even look at me while I am driving. When I park it and walk away thats when they really look at it. I have 5 other cars but this one beats all of them hands down. Except my antique Cougar Xr7 convertible. If you want a JAG you only live once, BUY IT! Ben"

"This car is my very best friend. So comfortable to drive, fits me like a glove. So powerful and so smooth, it handles like a dream and it is a great ride. The engine literally purrs like a cat, there is no other engine that sounds quite like it. It stays in the garage all winter and I can't wait to break it out each spring and get that top down and feel the wind in my hair! This car has been one of the most reliable sports cars I have owned so far."
