  • I think it is one of those uncomfortable words that I say one way one time and another way another time, lol. Either Jag-wire like the pp or Jag-whar. But on the commercials they tend to say Jag-u-ar. I just don't know which is correct, lol.

  • I've always said it jag-wire too. DS heard me say it and he's like, I say it jag-wahr. I looked it up and the dictionary said "jag-war" so I was just curious if I've been hearing the actually pronunciation wrong all this time or if others say it jag-wire too.

    Thank you - apparently I'm NOT the only one LOL.

  • If you buy a jaguar it comes with a dvd. The dvd's speaker is an englishman with a lovely accent, lol, he pronounces it Jag-u-wire. I LMAO when I heard it.

  • jag-wire.. On the commercial when I hear the guy say jag-you-are It makes me nuts! I've never heard anyone at the zoo say- "look at the jag-you-are!" I'm in Tx, so not sure if that changes things at all- maybe some areas say it the "wierd" way! lol

  • Jag-wahr is the right way I guess.. but jag-wire is close enough! As long as you're not saying it like the crazy commercial, I wouldn't notice.
