    My car

    This is a tremendous performance car to drive with great seats for long distances in comfort.

    However, my dealer experience has been mixed and not to the standard of BMW dealers in sevice levels. I believe extended warranty costs are excessive.

    My car

    I drive the x/2001 plate S-type on a daily basis and I can honestly find no faults with any aspect of this at all.

    Personally I can't drive it enough. I would not hesitate to upgrade but would go for the v8 sport version, not that there is anything wrong with the available power at the kick of the pedal of my current model.

    I do find the acceleration to be much quicker in normal drive mode than in sport mode, which I now rarely use for this reason alone.

    Great for long journeys with plenty of comfort and still feeling Ok after 400/500 miles.

    Bit on the expensive side but prices are coming down. Buy one!

    My car

    This is my first Jaguar after owning various other makes the last two being Mercedes E-Class diesels. I can only say that I this car betters the handling, economy and comfort of my previous cars. Well done Jaguar.

    My car

    It's very comfortable and fast especially the sports model/gear. The interior is very good and neatly done, stereo is superb, the sports seat is expecially good as I have a bad back.

    This car is comfortable and the sound is excellent - it sounds like a 3.2 petrol engine. The only time I hear the diesel noise is when l open the window and the car is not moving.

    I have a mercedes benz but the jaguar performance is excellent. I love the hand brake as well (auto release). the only down side is the pedal. Somehow i think it needs improvement as to the positioning of the foot. I also wish the S-type comes in 2.3 & 2.5 engine. I love the leather and the interior.
