this vehicle requires high octane gasoline which can be costly. It also is expensive to maintain.

British luxury design with performance are the primary reasons I like this vehicle. I bought this used in great condition. My only complaint was front end suspension and steering components needed replacement which cost a lot of money.

Classic lines for a sedan with the jaguar mystic.

Finding someone that can work on the jaguar xj is difficult. Also finding parts for my car can be frustrating at best.

- John P

The car can be hard to park because of its size so be careful

I will use the XJ until I get a new car but so far the XJ is a perfect car
