timeless beauty by tim st.petersburg on 02/01/2010. Trim: 1997 Jaguar XK8 Convertible, Owned 10 years.
Pros: probably the purest looks of a classy sportscar ever. the balance and lines are exceptional and timeless. i have owned my jag since 2000, and never seem to tire of that initial spark when i first look at her in the a.m. ,as i have owned 2 corvettes and 1 911 my jag turns more heads than either car.
Cons: in reading prior comments in the negative department, i also do share negatives such as poor material qualities such as the visor mirror spring falling apart, the center console beverage clip breaking, dash rattles, moisture in my headlights,[third set], dash lights burning out, a transmission replacement, suspension components, and h20 pump impellar breaking, and like anything else, having extremely poor dealer/customer support and concern other than wanting to take mine in trade and selling me a new one, after quoting me a small ridiculous fortune to repair. i highly recommend a second opinion/quote with any repair needed, as i have saved thousands by doing so.
Overall review: a gorgeous car with exclusivity, but the frustration that after the purchase service and support by "qualified" jag dealers is the absolute draw back. purchase one with at least 15000 dollars in escrow for" stupid" repairs. find a good secondary repair facility.
