  • Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    I am not status conscious so I am not comcerned about what it says about me. My friends are successful and wealthy so we don't dwell on the wealth as anything other than providing comfort and security which is exactly what this car provides I suppose. Sorry that sounds terribly smug which I am not as I made my own money.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They are all envious and like to talk Jag given the chance!

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    I will definitely buy another. But this beauty is such a good car I will be loathe to swap it for even a new one. It does not show it's age at all. She is used almost every day and lives outside. There is no rot or signs of ageing. Must be the aluminum body I suppose.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    XKR Simples!

    February 2011

    I paid top dollar because this was the car I wanted. I looked at about 5 or 6 before settling for mine and it was perfect in every way from day one.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Jaguar have always made iconic cars and as soon as I could afford one I bought it. Having had Mercs and Porsche before It felt like coming home and so it has been. Every single thing about the big cat has been a dream I have loved it!

    What was the dealer like?

    Could not have been more professional and helpful in every way

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    Driving the big Jag is lovely and easy for me, the wife and my two boys. I can't keep them out of it they love it! Seriously it corners on rails acclerates like a super bike and is quiet and relaxing on long journeys. Motorways are fun as everybody moves over when they see that big bonnet coming up behind.

    What's it like to park?

    Sensors make parking a doddle and it takes up less space than my Land Rover so it gets used for shopping!

  • Living with it

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    As smooth as silk and completely trouble free. As the records showed she only went in for a service annually and nothing else.

    What's most practical about your car?

    User friendly about town easy to park quick about the side roads and smoooooth on the motorway. Big boot takes my golf clubs and a picnic hamper.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The sheer qulity that has been lavished on the construction of this excellent machine is obvious as soon as you sit down in the drivers seat. Everything is in the right place and intuitive in use.
