I have now sold my car and replaced it with a BMW, Having been a Jaguar owner for many years, it seems they have gone from Great to Not So Great, and really a waste of money, with so many un-resoved problems.. Watch out for the car Juddering when idle. the gearbox, Heating system and suspension.
After having owned 2 XJ's, decided to get something different. Opted for an S type which was full of all the tricks - Sat Nav, PDC, TCS, DSC... the upshot is that the car was a real disappointment compared to previous cars ('92 XJ40 & 95 X300 Sovereign). The early S type's should have been a lot better than what they were. Overall, they look quite nice, can be head turning etc... but get a problem with them and the car will happily empty your bank balance. In summary - buy something else (XJ/ 5 or 7 Series, E class)
I have always wanted an S type Jag whicj I have now bought.It was loaded with a vast amount of extras by the previous owner.I am really pleased with it.I have only had one issue.Headlamp lens bracket about £300 but this was done with no fuss at Stratstone Swansea under warranty.It is expensive to run at about 26-30 mpg.However I am sure that everyone knows this.The boot is not condusive to more that one suitcase so try and travel light.My wide thought it was an old mans car but when she rides or drives it she hates to admit that there is no comparison to her Peugeout 206 cc.I would urge any prospective byer to use a main dealer to puchase to possible taking advantage of the Jaguar warranty.P.S.I would like to thank the person who scratched the side of my car with theirs for not stopping and paying up.All in all my experience has been good.
Outsanding car, especially as I had the X-Type estate prior to the S-Type. The S-Type has class and presence on the road. I have had the car for 4 months, from new, and has exceeded my expectations.
Living in Germany has its advantages when cruising 100+ on the autobahn. Having the emerald green with champagne leather gets the car a lot of admiring looks.
Look forward to the launch of the XF as I intend to get one in Sep/Oct 08 when I come back from 6 months away.

I've had 6 VWs now including this one and it is a mixed bag. In no particular order the economy is poor despite the FSI badging and in town never…
Why is there so much whining about the rear sets? It's small - it's called a "mini" (hint). It didn't get any smaller after you bought it, so deal…
