Used Jaguar Xj Series

Background

The Jaguar XJ was released in the UK in 2003 and production ended in 2010. It was the first series-production car to be made, almost entirely, from aluminium, which means it is 200kg lighter than its predecessor. This is despite it being longer, wider and taller than the previous car and having better head and leg room for all passengers. Its aluminium body also makes it 10-15% stiffer than the previous Jag which improves its driveability and strength. The 'aluminium XJ' was the seventh generation of Jaguar to carry the XJ badge. The first XJ was unveiled in 1968. 

The Jaguar XJ was powered either by a tried and tested 4.2 litre V8 engine, or new 3.5 litre V8 and 3.0 litre V6 options. All models came with a six speed automatic gear box. Soon after, the initial launch, Jaguar introduced long wheelbased versions which were supplemented with the addition of the luxury Sovereign trim level and an XJ6 entry-level car. A diesel option was added in the Spring of 2005 and in 2007 the XJ underwent a cosmetic upgrade which gave it a much more sporty look. However, the new large bumper and side gills weren't too popular with some Jag enthusiasts.

Bang for your buck

The used Jaguar XJ is an understated work of genius. It still has the classic Jaguar looks and the interior is as classy and well put together as you would expect. But its innovative aluminium body improves it fuel economy, performance, rust resistance and carbon emissions rating. All this and the XJ is bigger than its predecessor both in terms of leg room and luggage space.

All used Jaguar XJ models were fitted with the innovative self-levelling air suspension in combination with the CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension) system. This was a first for Jaguar and means that the full suspension travel is available at all times through increasing spring stiffness relative to the car's weight. This has the result that the XJ never slumps when travelling with a heavy payload and offers increased comfort and refinement. Additionally, aerodynamic efficiency can also be improved when travelling at speed by the automatic lowering of the ride height.

What you'll pay

Used Jaguar XJs hold their value pretty well, probably even better than their Mercedes equivalents. Prices for the 3.0 litre model start at around £27750 for the base trim and you can add another £2000 for the SE or Sport versions. The 3.5 litre V8 version is very sought after and will set you back around £32800 for a 52 plate. The 4.2 litre models kick off at around £35,000 for the SE or Sport and the XJR fetches around £40000. A 52 plate Super V8 will still relieve you of £45,000.

What to check

Buying a used Jaguar used to be a huge gamble but since they were taken over by Ford, most of the previous reliability issues have been smoothed out and Jaguars can now compete with Mercedes and BMW in the reliability stakes. There are no known mechanical issues with the XJ, the only known problem has been with the in-car entertainment system but even this is rare.

Parts

Replacement parts aren't cheap for second hand Jaguar XJs but then, you shouldn't need to buy them too often. To give you a few examples, a replacement starter motor is around £375 and a radiator costs approximately £425. Front brake pads are around £75 per set and rears are around £60. 

How it drives

Of the four engines available, the two 4.2 litre versions retained from the previous model are the top options and are the only units available in long-wheelbase form. In its normally aspirated form, the first of these V8s can generate 300 bhp, whereas the supercharged engine supplied with the XJR and Super V8 models gives 400 bhp. All this power combined with the XJ's lightweight frame results in an astonishing performance. A 3.5 litre V8 is also available and will generate 262 bhp. 

If you can afford the fairly high asking price for a used XJ, you could do a lot worse than invest in one. They are reliable, stylish and good to drive and are just as good and in many ways superior to, their German equivalents.
