- NOT ONE! I MEAN IT IT'S THE BEST CAR ON THE ROAD MY FAVOURITE CAR OF ALL TIME!
Right for starters, all of you out there who think that this car is just an expencive Ford you are WRONG! Yes Ford do own Jag now but it's still British car standards and always will be. This was the first car i bought when i passed my test and i will never enjoy a ride so much every again, to put it another way: if someone offered me a Rolls-Royce, Maybach or a Jaguar XKR i would choose the Jag each and every time, even if the others came with a driver. The Jag is still the very definition for quality and style. My best friends, brothers and even my boy-friend love it infact in 2 years it's clocked over 250,000 miles which is quite alot no? Unmistakeably the best car on sale now or ever!...read morehide

- basic bells and whistles for a lux car
- stupid designers, this car is plagued with problems, dont waste your money
what's the harsh all about? the car sucks. a honda prelude is more fun to drive, has better response and can out corner the xk8. ive had my xk8 for three years. constaint problems with electonics in engine management. Yeah, jaguar was good until they got a face lift by american designers with little reguard for durability. buy a brammo, thats the car you want if power is your game....read morehide

- fair fuel economy, real eye catcher, good handling, good value as a used car
- stiff suspension, repairs at dealership way too expensive
very nice, civilized, sports car , depreciation excessive,great buy as a used car with low mileage. still looks great after 10 years on the market

- Beautiful, sexy elegant car. Not to mention fast, really fast
- A bit on the expensive side, but well worth it
My dad gave me his old Jaguar XJ for my 16th birthday two years ago and bought the New XJ and is looking at purchasing the XKR. I have fell in LOVE with Jaguars ever since. The Jaguars are a joy to drive, and when a 390 hp engine is put in one, like the XKR, it'll make it all the more fun to drive. Jaguar makes a qaulity car, hands down. We've had my XJ for almost 4 years and never had one problem with it. And the Jaguar is a chic magnate, trust me on this one guys. If your having trouble finding a date buy a Jaguar, it'll solve the problem. You'll have one of the Olsen Babes on your arm the next day. So if your in the market for a $70,000 plus sports car look no farther. The XK8 is a fast, stylish car that comes with just about every feature and aminity you could hope for, except that british accent....read morehide

- GPS, comes standard
- Town mileage should be better
They should make a red one with black trim. It would be a big seller.

- Excellent Car, Beautiful Ride, Good Looking, Fuel Economy for this class of Car
- Minor trim issues, maintenance costs
When I bought this car (traded my lexus), I really like the look and feel of it. Rides great and is very fast! Have reserves for maintenance costs after warranty (parts are very expensive). The roof is not too attractive when down though.
FYI, if you don't own one, please refrain from reviewing, it wastes everyone's time! We don't want to read your misspelled lies!...read morehide

- It will atract the ladies
- Its too damn expensive for not enough car. Only 390 horses.
Let's be real. If you want a real sports/perfromance car this is not it. why would this much money for a two seater, which I can only drive in the summer months. I kow that "it's a jaguar", but we must face the music. Jaguar is all about style and cosmetics. Quality, performance and durability are not thier strengths. Not to mention this looks like a cereal box car. Maybe if you just want to blow $85,000 on a chick magnet this is the car for you. But hey, I gurantee mercedees, lexus and BMW will give more bang for your buck and probally a lot more style. This car gets a thumbs down....read morehide
