- Very smooth confertable ride, Has all the bells and whistles,
- Moon Roof jamed up after the first few months.. Only takes PREMIUM Gasoline.
I have always Liked Jaguars, despite many friends telling me not to buy them.. I have had excellent luck with them, I have had very little to minor issues. This is my third Jaguar. They run excellent if you do the service maintenance required ADVISE TAKE IT TO YOUR TRUSTED MECHANIC CAUSE I HAVE HAD THE EXPERIENCE OTHER MECHANICS TAKE ADVANTAGE.. For the moon roof incident, Jaguar went beyond and even rented me a free car of equal value while they fixed it...

- Average fuel economy but if you could afford a Jag, is fuel price a consideration?
- So far, the 2008 XJ8L earns a better grade than its previous model years.
I loathed the front end look at first, but it has now grown on me. Overall, its sportier look is a more refreshing refinement this outdated styling can depend upon. Comparing to my former '06 XJ8L, it's much quieter and definitely more pleasant to drive.
By the way, the '06 was re-purchased by Jaguar USA because it turned out to be a real sour lemon. It was a tough fight with Jaguar to have it declared as such, and an even tougher fight to get a reimbursement. The Jaguar dealership in San Diego was great to deal with while the Jaguar Consumer Affairs office who handled the buy-back was bully and extremely discourteous. The kid who handled the case must have been a former member of Cribs or Bloods.
Despite all that, the new 2008 XJ8L is a real blast! I love the cooled/heated seats as well as the updated adjustments for them....read morehide
