Cool Cats – Jaguars Across the USA for $18-33k, Including an XKR!
Let’s start with the Jaguar unicorn ($35,000 or less, 60,000 miles or less) that got away not once but twice. You can find the details in the search for my next car here but I’ve found two 2010 Jaguar XKR’s with low mileage, under $33,000, and wimped out both times. This is the car that I rue regularly. I’ve added the CarMax purchase order and MaxCare warranty at the bottom of this post so you can see how a deal might look.
But in the meantime, the search continues and I’ve tracked the cars below that I hope are of interest to you. Today there are 101 Jaguars on CarMax lots nationwide and 14 of them meet my unicorn standards – and have V8’s. I’ve included a pair of XJ’s, a quad of XF’s, a lonely XKR, and a few cars that were once on the market and gone….for now. I started the post last night and this morning the XF and XKR are gone. While editing this morning this ridiculously low-mileage 2010 XK surfaced in Las Vegas. I welcome suggestions on making this more relevant for the reader, and please sign up at the bottom if you’d like updates.

Outliers: A Cheap XKR Convertible and Cheaper XF V8!
XK and XKR Bonus Tips – 1) CarMax almost always lists XK’s as having sunroofs, even convertibles, and they don’t. As far as I can tell they never did. CarMax refunded my transfer payment when my very first XKR arrived and it was a bit claustrophobic. Didn’t know how I missed it not having a sunroof, then I learned it was listed with one. They promptly refunded my money. 2) Perhaps Jaguar experts will know why, as I don’t, but pre-2012 XKR’s show up in the XK category on the CarMax website, and 2012 and newer XKR’s show up in the proper XKR category. Only matters if you have your heart set on an XKR and only search there – you will miss the 2011 and older ones!
