Repair costs for the base model Jaguar XK are expected to total $2,597 over five years, the NADA reports.

The NADA estimates that the fourth-year repair expenses for the 2011 XK will total around $1,039, and owners will pay approximately $1,558 for repairs during the fifth year of ownership.

The NADA reports that routine maintenance costs for the Jaguar XK will total about $3,188 over five years.
