Overall the 2008 XK is a reliable vehicle and with low mileage should not have a lot of issues as long as it has been properly maintained. The powertrain and drivetrain are strong. Some issues I do see is with the thermostat for the cooling system, some leaks developing in the rear end and some electrical concerns with the convertible top and other body electrical functions. Also they do tend to eat up tires since they are staggered tires and can't be rotated.Let me know if you have any further questions or concerns about the vehicle let me know.
