Having been around previously Jaguar models, beginning with cars from the late 1990's all the way to the post millennium mid-2000 models, I was excited when my car dealer from Jenkins Imports called me up a blustery summer evening in 2009. When I arrived at the dealership, I couldn't have been more excited to feast my eyes upon my new black 2010 XK. The vehicle eminated sophisitcation, and sex appeal was oozing from the mufflers. I opted for the convertible; a risky choice for Midwest weather, seeing as how brutal winters we have. Luckily, I would garage the vehicle until the appropriate conditions arose.
Although the car looked wonderful on the exterior, that's not to say there weren't several maintenance and transmission problems to go along with the ride. It seemed once a month I had to drop off the car at the shop, sulking in misery as I rode the city bus back to my condo. First, something with the allignment wasn't quite right, and then something with the alerntator became malfunctional. I was used to routine maintenance check ups due to my past experience with Jaguar, but nothing to this extent.
The pros of the vehicle would be that it looks amazing, and when it runs, provides a smooth, powerful ride. The cons of the vehicle would be the purchase price (over $70,000), as well as general maintence of the vehicle. And the repairs need to be done at a speciality shop so that is not cheap either.
Great car if you have the money to spend, but if you're looking for a reliable daily driver, you may want to look elsewhere.
