What used Jaguar XK sports will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Jaguar XK sports?
Despite the modest price for a used version, the XK Convertible isn't going to be cheap to run. Fuel, maintenance and insurance costs are all high, even though they're more palatable than those of rivals such as the Porsche 911 and Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
Claimed average economy is 25.0mpg for the 4.2 V8 and 22.9mpg for the 4.2 R, and 25.2mpg for the 5.0 V8 and 23.0mpg for the 5.0 R. A word of warning, though: exploit the engines' power and those figures will nosedive.
Better news is that, if you buy a used XK at the right price, you shouldn't lose a fortune in depreciation. Regular maintenance is essential. Jaguar dealers have a good reputation for customer satisfaction, and while you don't have to use them, it will help your car's future value. You can always use a good independent garage to save money once the car is out of warranty.
