So it has been just under two weeks since I bought a thing Meow wandered through our neighbourhood, lonely and looking for a loving home.
So Meow is a 2014 XJL, an X351 generation (sold in the US since 2011) and the long-wheelbase version of Jaguar’s flagship. Being a 2014, it had gone through some minor updates (the substantial facelift came in 2016). The most obvious is the 3.0 label, denoting the downsized supercharged base engine replacing the 5.0L NA V8.
Of course, being a luxury car and a brand flagship, it has distinctive design, tons of features and a lavishly trimmed interior. That needs no introduction. Being a Jag, however, Meow has some...personality.
Allow this cat noob to present some of its oddities.
