2006 Jaguar XJ-Series User Reviews
- $12,059 - $19,468
- Excellent in every way- Exceeding my expectations
- Navigation should be standard, 6 disc CD player should be standard, Satellite radio too!
I own a 2005 XJ8L and so far the car has been fabulous (14,000 miles into ownership). Lately I have been doing all my driving in sport mode and really womping the gas pedal off the line and I am still managing 21 MPG...The car is amazingly quick from 50-100 and if your not careful you can light up the tires off the line. I had some jiggles in the headliner when I first bought it but JAG was quick to correct the problem- no jiggles since. The back seat has an incredible amount of leg room and the driving position is just terrific. The trunk is long, but not deep. Don't expect to fit any really bulky items in there. The overall quality is really superb given the past history of Jag quality. Sound system is good. Engine note is great. When I was shopping for this car I looked at 7 series, A8L, S class MBZ (430) and E350. Nothing really came close to this car. The 7 was way too complicated, the A8L while nice, just didn't have the secret sauce to justify 75K, MBZ was so underpowered I was shocked, and the E350 felt like a camry. in summary the new Jag is fast, unique, high quality with great MPG to spare- Couldn't be happier....read morehide

- The Car is beautiful, elegant and not a lexus clone
- the car is fabulous.
Its fun not to be in the typical Lexus/BMW type of car. The car is ungodly fast, elegant and gracious. I always get parked by the valet in the front and garner attention everywhere I go. The quality of the Jaguar is unrivaled, and the attention to detail is impecable.

- 24 mpg cruising at 75mph, great ride, both worlds family and sporty
- Modulation of brakes a bit difficult but great response. No complains
I bought this car new Dec05. I have put over 3,000 miles nad all I can see is I am speechless. I have been a BMW follower M3, 540..and nothing rides like this. The CATS and air suspension makes this a total Royal ride. Want to go easy? Fine...want to enjoy an amazing ride? No problem press S and the car will move like a real cat aroud the corners. The problem I have is that after this I do not think I can drive anything else. Great GPS, only bothering thng is the lock after you start driving. Economy in sport mode can go under 13mpg....but in highway you can get 24mpg at 75mph!!!!. Great strereo, great seats. Great adadptive cruise control and absolutely beautiful. Lots of friends amazed!!!! And very exclusive!!! Only minor thing to fix maybe is to make the brakes smoother but on the other hand they are massive Brembo so...you get amazing stopping power with some jurkiness. Ian Callum has kept the spririt of Jaguar alive (not like mR Chris Bangle with his odd exteriors and not classical interior. Jaguar has kept top quality with top technology easy of use (forget Idrive) and beauty of conception and clean materials. I have driven this car for 4 months and every time I jumpet at the wheel it makes me feel I am royalty....read morehide

- 400 HP & 24 mpg. Classy. A jeweled 4 door sports car. Is there such a thing? There is now!
- Not many cons. The trunk could be deeper. 20 in wheels should be standard.
If you like class, luxury, horse power, and sports cars, and.... to be able to haul up to 5 people if needed, then look no further. This is the car. I have had many cars, and this car ranks as the most classy and the most FUN. Adults are allowed to have fun, are they not? Best of all, it has a lot of room. And for the record, this XJR does get 24 mpg. In fact, I have gotten up to 25 mpg on freeway driving going 73 mph. And that is the truth. One more thing.... make sure it fits in the garage. It is 200 inches long, and a car this nice should be garaged. Have fun!...read morehide

- Ride, handling, acceleration, comfort, style, ergonomics, visibility, fuel economy, brakes, and more
- Rear parking sensor should have camera, prefer paddle shift over J-gate, brake modulation not linear
This is one very classy, extremely smooth, incredibly fast luxury tourer. The light weight aluminum structure gives this car tremendous responsiveness in handling, acceleration and braking and contributes to very good overall fuel economy of just over 20 mpg. The interior is exquisite. The exterior is eye catching, yet timeless beauty. I get raves over this car everywhere I go. Also very rare ... I've never yet seen another on the road. Nothing in its class at anywhere near its price makes this car a phenomenal value....read morehide

- design , quality , high tech, elegance, ride
- let the valet drive it...small trunk , ostentatious
a wonderful machine, classy , quick , better than the current german and japanese offer with an ellegance and style above the rest in its pricelane.
the jgate trans is often described as an obsolete device but if youre not andretti or senna it is as good as the rest of the trans out there.
the interior is just like a fine lady with the smoothest hand crafted leather and exotic woods and a design that was thinked to relax , enjoy and pamper those who are inside .
a place where the time seems to stop when you are inside....
the exterior is like the old school jags and remember that those jags where used by the royalty.......read morehide
