Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

2011 Jaguar XK Convertible review: 2011 Jaguar XK Convertible

Entered in an automotive beauty contest, the 2011 Jaguar XK would certainly come away with the crown. Even in convertible form, where its soft top loses the lines of the coupe's roof, the long nose preserves the car's essential sleekness.

That smooth as silk exterior comes at a price, though, with poor sight lines to the sides and rear. Jaguar could have made lane changes and parking safer with a backup camera and blind-spot detection, but these features are not available.

Putting the top down increases visibility around the car, but the convertible XK suffers from compromised trunk space, not something we usually see with a soft top.

The cabin of the XK convertible competes with the exterior design for elegance, its handsome coachwork using metal switchgear, leather coverings, and wood trim. There is not much plastic to be found in the XK convertible.

The XK's torpedo shape hearkens back to the Jaguar E-type.

Jaguar attempts to make the cabin tech interface as lovely as everything else, but ends up with a menu system that looks like 1990s Web design. This interface, built on Adobe Flash, slides menu buttons in from the left side of the screen, slick animation that ultimately proves more spectacle than practical.

We found ourselves having to drill down through multiple menus to choose music from a connected iPod, place a phone call, or enter a destination in the navigation system, too frequently pulling our attention from the road. There is also a voice command system, but it only offered the basics, not sophisticated enough to let us dial contacts by saying a person's name or choose music.

Aside from the audio system, the cabin tech in the XK convertible lacks the kind of advanced features we've come to expect from other luxury automakers. The navigation system was particularly disappointing, its DVD-based maps only showing in 2D, with no traffic information overlaid. At least the resolution was good, and the navigation system calculated routes quickly. The only thing we really liked about the navigation system was that it showed route guidance instructions on the instrument cluster display.

The cabin tech interfaces uses buttons that slide out from the left side of the screen.

The Bluetooth phone system went a little beyond the basics by downloading contact lists to the car, making them available on the touch screen. Instead of a simple list of contacts, the interface made us enter letters, then push a search button, a process that seemed a bit strained for an automotive interface.

We were pleased to find a dedicated iPod connector in the console next to a USB port. The iPod connection worked reasonably fast, but we felt that the number of menus we had to go through to select music was distracting. The car also offered satellite radio, but no HD radio or Bluetooth audio streaming.

Much of the interface hassles we could forget, if not forgive, when listening to the stunning audio quality from the Bowers and Wilkins system, which comes standard with the XK convertible. Using eight speakers and a 525-watt amp, this system lives up to the high-end reputation of is maker.

Music that really stood out with this system seemed to be simple acoustic tracks with a singer. For example, listening to the Kings of Convenience album "Riot on an Empty Street," the vocals were broadcast with a pleasant warmth, and every sound from the acoustic guitar strings came through in detail. Heavily produced tracks were also amplified with an attention to detail, bringing out every layer. This system is truly audiophile quality, making the XK convertible's cabin a place for music lovers.

The Bowers and Wilkins audio system produces exceptional quality sound.

At least, that is the case with the top up, which does a good job of damping external noise. The system does not compensate well for fast, top-down driving, losing out to wind noise. Digital signal processing settings include Dolby surround sound, three-channel, and simple stereo, but nothing to combat the rush of air. We appreciated the staging of the system, which did an excellent job of centering the sound near the windshield, but Bowers and Wilkins should come up with a setting specifically for top-down driving.

The growler
Another audio source we particularly enjoyed in the XK convertible was the engine, a finely engineered direct injection 5-liter V-8 producing an aggressive growl whenever we got on the gas. With 385 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, that growl was accompanied by immediate and powerful forward motion. Like its brand namesake, the XK convertible leapt forward easily.

This aluminum block direct injection V-8 is a thoroughly modern engine with an excellent exhaust note.

Our repeated desire to hear that delightful growl helped keep the XK convertible's fuel economy on the low side, at 16.4 mpg during our mixed city, freeway, and mountain highway driving. The EPA range for the car is 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway, that upper figure not bad for a V-8 with this much displacement.

Jaguar updated the interior controls of the XK convertible with the same sort of shift dial introduced in the XF sedan. This bit of techie gimmickry sits flush in the console when the car is off, rising up when the engine turns over. We found the dial intuitive to use, and it feels solid enough. Along with the usual automatic transmission settings, it includes a Sport mode that requires pressing the dial down past a detent.

We were very impressed with the responsiveness of this six-speed automatic. In Drive mode, it moved through the gears smoothly, and in Sport mode it held on to the low gears well when we encouraged it with the gas pedal. Paddle shifters on the steering wheel throw it into manual mode, where we found the gear changes happened with a satisfying quickness, limiting torque converter slush. With this transmission, we would only want for an extra gear or two, letting the engine run a little slower on the freeway to save gas.

The XK convertible's handling proved a delight, as well. Left in standard settings, the car showed good stability and rotation when we threw it into a corner. But this gentleman's sports car has much more to offer, a set of buttons near the shift dial that loosens up stability control and puts it in an aggressive Track mode.

Although not traditional, the dial selector works perfectly fine for transmission control.

Tackling winding, mountain highways with the transmission in Sport mode and the stability control dialed down, we noticed a bit more rotation in the corners, but it did not feel like a dramatic difference. We expect that the harder cornering possible on a track would reveal more benefit. The checkered flag Track mode button made the accelerator more responsive, letting us more easily modulate power in the turns, and pick up speed fast on the exit.

An open and twisty road was clearly the XK convertible's preferred hunting ground. It was smooth in city driving, its steering radius and power boost helping during tight maneuvering, but the engine occasionally proved a little too aggressive, making the car occasionally leap forward with minor gas pedal input in traffic.

Whether on the highway or the freeway, the XK convertible cruised delightfully. At 70 or 80 mph with the top down, there was a good deal of wind noise, but turbulence was minimal in the front seats. Although we didn't have it in our car, Jaguar makes an adaptive cruise control system available, its most high-tech driver assistance feature.

In sum
The 2011 Jaguar XK Convertible wins on performance and looks. Its V-8 delivers immediate power with a pleasing growl, and the suspension and active stability systems help put that power to the pavement. Although an automatic, the transmission changes gears quickly, and our only complaint is that it won't downshift aggressively during braking. Track and Sport modes let the car really stretch out its legs in an appropriate venue.

The sound quality from the Bowers and Wilkins audio system serves as the high point for cabin tech. All else is mediocre. The navigation system lacks advanced features, as does the phone system. This car could really use a blind-spot detection system, along with a rearview camera.

Curved lines give the XK Convertible a torpedo-like look, very appropriate for a Jaguar as it hearkens back to the legendary E-type. But there are too many practical problems with the design, such as the poor sight lines and the minimal trunk space. The cabin tech interface design is particularly poor, requiring too much attention away from the road for simple operations.

2011 jaguar price xk

Jaguar is confident it got the XK right. Proof is on the order sheet, where there are almost no options. The factory is 13 color choices away from churning out an endless parade of identical cars. The only options are added-cost paint, a pair of wheel upgrades, a black headliner, a heated windshield, HD Radio, and the Advanced Technology package, which bundles adaptive headlights (which you might want) with adaptive cruise control (which you absolutely do not).

Then again, if a carmaker includes everything as standard, there’s nothing left to ask for. On the cheapest XK you can buy are navigation, satellite radio, 16-way power seats—heated and cooled—a heated steering wheel, keyless entry and go, and a 525-watt Bowers & Wilkins stereo with an in-dash six-disc changer and a USB input. The interior on our test car, which was beyond reproach and filled with wood and leather so sumptuous you want to lick them, didn’t cost an extra nickel. We were positively floored when we looked at this car’s window sticker and saw not a single option listed. Of course, a price of $83,000 will also floor a lot of people.

Entry-Level Excellence

This Jaguar’s standard excellence extends beneath that long, elegant hood, too. But even cars that get it right on the first go have some room for improvement. So for 2010, the former base engine—a 300-hp, 4.2-liter V-8—was replaced by a direct-injection, 5.0-liter eight with variable valve timing and a variable-geometry intake manifold, generating a stonking 385 hp at 6500 rpm and 380 lb-ft at 3500. In addition to shuffling the XK about effortlessly, turning in a 5.0-second 0-to-60 flick, and bellowing through the quarter in 13.5 at 107 mph, the 5.0 sounds marvelously unrestrained, nearly out of place in a car so elegant. We say “nearly” because ensuring other people know you’re better than them is part of the Jaguar allure, no? The engine’s tremendous flexibility is reflected in its passing-acceleration times: 30 to 50 mph in 2.5 seconds, 30 to 70 mph in 3.6. This is a car for people who are going places and are bent on getting there immediately.

Behind that engine is the only transmission available, a six-speed automatic (if you’re hoping for more griping about the rotary shifter, look elsewhere). Paddles on the back of the steering wheel are standard, of course, and each one has a single assigned task: The right upshifts, and the left downshifts. The transmission responds instantaneously, and on downshifts, it rev-matches so aggressively it’ll probably fool a lot of automatic-driving bystanders.

The Jag also feels plenty sporty on a winding road. The steering is weighty but without being crass or overly sporty. Feedback is muffled somewhat—just enough so that it doesn’t trouble the driver. The same is true of the handling. Toss the XK into a bend, and it is balanced and planted but without being so stiff as to ever upset a passenger. The base XK rides on the same suspension as the more sporting XKR, which helps explain the cars’ essentially identical skidpad figures: 0.92 for the XKR versus 0.91 for the XK seen here. Braking from 70 mph to 0 is similarly similar, at 163 feet for the XK and 160 for the XKR.

The one demerit the cars share is the size of the interior. Although sumptuous, the space is a bit confining. Then again, that’s the British tradition—didn’t the colonials bail because they found the Old Country too stifling? The XK wouldn’t have to be so snug if it weren’t for that vestigial rear seat, though. Nobody is going to fit back there, and even if you find someone who does, the sleek roof and the high beltline leave them a nose-high pillbox slot for a window. Just ditch it, we say. Even if the resultant space increase is minimal, it’s still an increase, and any bump in insurance rates from ditching two seats would be irrelevant to people shopping the XK.

Seriously, Fix the Electronics, Already

We were also disappointed—but not surprised—to find a few electronics issues with our Jaguar. One staffer slowed to maneuver through some bumps in the road and emerged on the other side to find that the transmission had disengaged. The twirling tranny knob still pointed at D, but the D was blinking. He rotated the knob to sport, which did nothing, and then to neutral, which did nothing. So he stopped, put the car in park and back in drive, and was only then able to continue on his way.

Later, on a freeway slog, we noticed that bumps would occasionally cause the cruise control to quit. What made this even stranger was that it didn’t seem to be the biggest impacts that did it—just random expansion joints here and there. Although moving our thumb to the “resume” button is easy enough, that’s not quite the point. The cheapest cars on the road don’t have problems like this; it’s not okay for a Jaguar to.

Those, though, are our only complaints. The XK is a stunning car to look at, to be inside, and to drive. It feels special and substantive, and everything that makes it so is standard. The fact that the $96,000 XKR merely adds more power—but not major chassis, transmission, or interior upgrades—is proof. The only way Jaguar saw fit to make the everyday XK better was to fortify it with this bigger engine. We agree. (And if somebody could permanently banish the electrical gremlins, we’d agree to that, too.)
