I see many low mileage cars and a number of 07s as well. The 07 should be the best bang for the buck with the big chunk of depreciation factored in. Regardless, after being on this forum for awhile I see the XK as being one of Jaguar's most reliable cars. I'm definitely a fan now.

This is very reassuring as I plan to keep mine up to at least 100K

At just over 160,000 K's. Both belts changed with tensioners too. Gets rid of that budgie chirp chirp in the mornings. Agm Battery. Trans filter and oil replaced. Just recently the spark plugs. The usual brakes/pads, tyres etc as per the norm.
That's about it. The xkr feels nice and tight, never know it has done over 160,000k's. I think if you follow regular service intervals these Jaguars will go a long way.

At just over 160,000k's apart from the usual brakes, tyres etc. I have had the belts and tensioners changed. Gets rid of that morning chirp chirp sound. Trans filter and oil replaced. Just recently the spark plugs replaced. The xkr still feels nice and tight. You would never know it has done over 160,000k's. If you keep up with regular service intervals the xkr will reward.

2010 XKR 75, 29k miles - but most of those aren't mine, as I bought second-hand. I do less than 4k miles per year.

Current 2013 XKR 510 miles. Bought July 30, 2013 with 300 miles.
Sold 2011 XKR 175, July 1, with 5100 miles.

Changed my signature picture and avatar to the C-X75. Has to be best looking car ever. To bad it's not going to production. My closest replacement car is the Acura NSX. However, not even close to C-X75. What a shame. If I had a C-X75 I would drive it about 10 miles/year.

On second thought, with the efficiency of a Prius I'll make it my everyday! lol A 1.6L petrol engine, making about the same performance specs as the current 5L SC, and AWD with 2 electric front wheel engines. Acura has the NSX in production for 2015 with a similar configuration but not even close to the performance level of the C-X75. I expected some of the technology in the C-X75 to be in the F-type. I'm disappointed with Jaguar, producing a conventional F-type sports car with no C-X75 technology and killing the C-X75. When will Jaguar product a real super car in put the brand along side of Ferrari and the other exotic supercar brands? Come on Jaguar give us the C-X75...

Bring it on Jaguar:

My 2009 XKR Portfolio has given me the best 66,000 miles of my life. I wouldn't trade a moment of it. Here's to another 66!

83,500 on a 2007 XK coupe. I bought it with 54,000 on it this time last year.

PROBLEMS: TPMS intermittent when bought (bought and installed a new TPMS monitor to be calibrated sometime next week).........antenna made the bummity bump thunka thunka sound going up and down when bought (new mast fixed that)..........coolant outlet assy broke an internal passage causing too high a water temp at idle (new outlet assy that I installed fixed that).......airbag light came on intermittently caused by a bad clock spring (piece of black electrical tape over the airbag fault symbol fixed that).............a speed control that has a habit of kicking off after I've been driving constantly over 10-12 hrs. I've found I can just pull over to the side of the road and restart the engine and then the cruise is good for another ten plus hrs of driving. This was irritating til I found out that just rebooting the thing by doing a restart would make all well again...............the upper seat back will hit the wheel arch when tilted back and this will cause the upper seat back to 'warp' unless you tilt it back upright to miss the wheel arch. On a SL if you tilt the upper seat back it will automatically stop the upper seat from touching the wheel arch by moving the whole seat fwd. I'm not sure if the Jaguar is supposed to act like the SL does or not. I'll ask the Jag tech when he calibrates my TPMS monitor next week. And no, my seat back is not ruined, it just warps if you keep the button pressed in the rearwards tilt position. So I don't do that.

EDIT: Battery went **** up a couple of months ago. Five year old battery. Poor maint. on my part by not replacing it a year ago.

Most of the miles I put on the car were interstate miles and drives of 26-27 hrs length at interstate speeds of 75-85 constantly. All in all it's been a reliable car. I think it's good til I hit somewhere around 150K. That should take another couple of years and I might tire of it prior to then and trade for something or other. No F Type for me. Too noisy for long road trips and I don't like noisy convertibles.

One thing that irritates a bit........the rear wheels/tires make too much noise going over rough aggregate roads. Not that many of those rough hwys out there, but Jag should have made more of an effort in deadening that tire noise.

I also will take the time to say......that if there is a new XK in the near future, I definItely won't buy one if it has four seats ( I don't consider the two rear seats in my 2007 'seats'. Luggage area at best).

EDIT: Forgot to say I love the car. The 'problems' described above are not serious problems imho. Just irritations but would not stop me from buying another XK (two seat version, please).

EDIT: Forgot one other item. A one time event. I went to the car and pressing the start button did nothing at all. Nothing seemed to work on the car. No headlights. I Think the side lights might have worked. After fumbling around, I read the owners manual and took the Smart Key and Docked it in the center console and then the car started up. The car acted normal the rest of the day. I did replace the battery in the Smart Key later just in case it was a weak Smart Key battery. I really don't think it was though.
