I definitely prefer a v6 over the v8.
Avoid Jags at ALL costs. I used to work at a Land Rover/Jag dealership and I know first hand what unreliable wrecks these cars are. They make first generation Daimler-Chrysler Mercedes looks reliable. Sometimes they even make Land Rover look reliable. The cars (Jags) are great to look at, but that's where the fun ends. They simply don't compete with the best in the class and are a dealer service department's best friend (because they spend more time there then on the road). AVOID!

I don't think the CPO applies for the 00' and 01's. It's only good for 2003's and newer. It says 5 years.
