This is the essential guide to all Jaguar XJ models from 2003 to 2009. An important read for any potential owner, but also a constant reference guide to keep with you when viewing a car. It will help you identify the model that suits you, what to look for when inspecting a car, and will provide you with all the necessary procedures to ensure the car is actually what it appears to be. It will identify some of the pitfalls to avoid, help you decide on exactly how to buy - from a dealer, private sale, or auction - and how to get the best possible car for your money. The X350s are the last with what many would call traditional Jaguar styling, yet they embody many technological advances. Therefore it is even more important to study the subject closely and inspect cars thoroughly before purchase. This book is the perfect pocket guide for that purpose.
