2008 Jaguar XK-Series User Reviews
XK Convertible shown
- $27,212 - $38,431
- Smooth Ride, Lots of Power, Luxury Features
- I'm still thinking.....
This car is amazing. It's smooth, fast, great stereo, it's comfortable. If you are looking for a sports car where the ride is tight and beefy (like a Porsche) this is not the car for you. But if you want a quick, great looking easy car to drive, get one! My husband and I have a Mercedes SL600 AMG, Bentley Continental, Maserati Grande Tourismo, etc... and this is car has the best ride overall out of those listed....read morehide

- Great Looks, Good Speed
- Navigation needs work, software issue,And If battery is a weak, top will not go Up but will go down.
Overall a good car but expensive. Fun to drive.
Unsure if its a Jaguar thing but my dealership Hennessee Jaguar is very cheap. Took in for maintance, no free loaner car ??
My Jeep comes with a loaner car and it only costed $27,000 not almost $100K

- Great fuel economy, wonderful engine, very resonsive, great sports car feel. Transmission is great.
- After three months of ownership and 3,000 miles--NONE
Over the past 45 years I have owned nearly all of the luxury cars on the market and the only one I would rate higher is the Ferrari which is not really fair because it is in a completely different class. Before I bought the XK I drove the Benz 500 series, the BMW 6 and 7 series and the Aston Martin and always came back to the Jag. The body style turns heads where ever you go. The Jag XK is a far better car and much better value than the Aston Martin coupe which feels underpowered and is somewhat difficult to see out of at all angles. The electronic system is fantastic and although the Nav system takes some getting used to it is great. It is impossible to make a mistake buying this car. Ford has done an unbelievable job of totally cleaning up the quality mess Jaguar was in for so many years. I just hope the new owner of the company keeps it going....read morehide

I LOVE THE SOUND OF THE JAG THE HANDLING AND THE AWESOME DESIGN. I HAVE HESITATED BUYING A JAG BECAUSE OF THE PAST REPUTATION BUT WITH ONLY 1000 MILES ON THE NEW JAG I AM SO FAR VERY HAPPY AND IMPRESSED...read morehide

- technolgy, general aspect, performances.
- too sophisticated GPS
I visited the works near Coventry England and was very surprised by the quality of the material and the motivation of employees. This car is exceptional for its road handling, its equipment, its technology (riveted aluminium) and its general aspect. I purchased one of the first models and two years later, am still very happy with this roaring cat....read morehide

- Stunning looking car, great exhaust note, all aluminium construction
- none! only can't park it in a busy supermarket just the thought of a little old lady with a trolly!
First saw the new XK in the Jag showroom after going in to price up older shape XK and just had to have one, sleek lines, great chrome mesh nose, usual classy jag interior. to drive even better usual smooth auto system with manual steering wheel gear change if you feel the need for manual, best of all I've owned a lot of sports cars Porches, Lotus but none have attracted as many looks just love this car!, say no more...read morehide

- looks, comfort, handling
- speed freaks should consider the XKR instead
Looks great, drives like a dream. I especially love is the car's split personality. Has the ride of a luxury sedan when driven responsibly, but push it a little bit, and the suspension tightens up, the exhaust roars, and it feels much closer to a sports car than to a GT (am not saying it actually is a sports car, just that it is handles way better and is more nimble than most GTs, including some that cost much more). When I took it out on the track, I had no trouble keeping up with assorted M3's and 911's in the turns. Also, this transmission rocks, paddle shifting is way way faster than the Tiptronic on my old 911 or Audi S8....read morehide

- GREAT LOOKS, EXCELLENT BUILD QUALITY, SUPERB POWERTRAIN
- $2,500.00 PREMIUM STEREO COULD BE A LITTLE BETTER..... CHEAPER INSURANCE!
The 2008 XKR is my second Jaguar that I have purchased since 2004. My first Jaguar was an '04 XJR. Both cars are excellent automobiles. The 2008 XKR has many features that my '04 XKR did not have.... such as, more horsepower, suede headliner, active headlights that turn with the steerng wheel & most of all, a defeatable DCS & trac system so you can get really crazy if you want!
This car is sooooo addicting & fun to drive I actually started cruising again! I haven't done that since I was in my 20's! This car is better than drugs.
I would recommend this car to anyone who is looking for an excellent & supurb Luxury Sports car at an affordable price!...read morehide

- great driving car
the 2008 XKR is a great car to drive; looks great; handles like a true sports car. finest driving machine on the road for at least $125k less than other high end coupes from Italy, etc.
Will be 25 years from now a classic to have owned.
