2003 Jaguar XJ8 4.0 V8
Beautiful car, and a great buy
Nothing really. The rear door was sticky, and would not unlock sometimes - quite an easy fix - just take the door cover, and clean and lube. It's all about preventive maintenance - I did a transmission service, replaced the thermostat housing with an aluminium one, did an oil change and coolant flush, change the belt, and it is good to go.
The car is beautiful to look at, and is plenty fast. Being a regular XJ (not the R), it is very quiet and soft, which I like. Some of the trim pieces are of questionable quality, although nothing had fallen off. It looks like nothing else on the road, and it makes you feel special. Nothing beats it for the money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
