      This guy should become a key presenter on BBC Top Gear.
      Straight forward presentations, pleasant clear voice and good balance of technical and opinion.

      Indeed. A time when top gear was informative and about cars before it became a comedy vehicle for three clowns. Yes, a good review, well paced and informative. Having owned many Jaguars and a four of Daimlers, I too appreciate these cars, so much better than the competition.

      Hi I'm the angry internet mechanic, Honda and Toyota lover. Yes you can buy a car that's 15 years old and expect little to no problems. Enough prove of that in the net.
      Other than that, if you can afford a car like this, then it's awesome, you sink in to it, isolated and comfortable, jaguars might not be the most reliable cars, but they are one of the nicest to be in. Great review.

      I have the facelift X358 with the 2.7 Twin Turbo and as the man says it is a pleasure to drive and returns an amazing 38/9 to the gallon at a steady 75mph. It also has more than enough power with 204BHP and 0 - 60 at 7.9 seconds.

      I like the style of the car as much as you do.But don't get me wrong,there is no sense in buying one of this over an Phaeton or an Audi A8 d3.The 7 series from that gen was crap and the S can't be compared with those it's far ahead from them.But in every way the Vw Phaeton and Audi A8 are better...i am a fan of Xj's especially the X308 i loved the design of that car.But they lost a lot of playground over the german cars in the last 15 years.Nice video btw and nice car :)

      Thanks for watching! The A8 can have timing chain issues as well as auto box issues. They too suffer from corrosion on the bodywork. They're not without their issues. The Lexus LS460 would be the safest bet

      I had a 2004 Jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas from May of 2015 to January of 2018 and let me just say I should NOT have bought that car. Sure it did bring me great experiences, but I sold it with close to 120,000 miles on it and spent way more than the car was worth only to keep pouring money into it for the next (almost) 3 years. Finally sold it in January of last year because there was an on-and-off check engine light and I needed something more reliable to commute to and from college. Only paid about $5,600 for it in 2015, but sold it for a measly $2,300 (ouch). While I had the car, I did get a lot of hate just for voicing my opinion of the problems it has. Still do to this day even though I sold the car (you won't believe what people have written)! Great video man, you deserve a medal!

      +High Peak Autos A 2014 Honda Civic Si. Very engaging to drive, decent power, 6 speed manual, same 0-60 as the Jag, and reliable! I'm thinking the next time I buy a luxury car, it will be a Mercedes.

      What a beautiful car. What year did Jaguar make the last of the sport version and did they give more spec with the outgoing model? How much would you expect to pay for an outgoing sport model?

      Great vid. I myself own two X300 models and thinking of purchasing a X350. Was always skeptical about the reliability only because I know Ford owned Jag at the time. I myself currently work for a Ford dealership, but never had any major problems from my X300’s other than corrosion. I do love the X350 body style along with my X300.

      Perfect review of this era of Jaguar. And I'm in the market for one !!!
      I'm currently selling my Merc CLK which was a mistake purchase and I'm going to have a 07 or 08 Sovereign diesel because they have more torque than the V8 4.2 and loads of toys.


      Always enjoy your vides because in a world of noise and frenzy, yours is the voice of reason.
