I replaced my 3.0 V6 with this car. I had the 3.0 for 3 years and loved it.
What is the difference between the 3.0 and the 4.2? Where do you start?
The 4.2 is very quick when needed and even more of a pleasure to drive. I have toured Scotland and Ireland doing 3000 miles and 4000 miles in a fortnight. It has been totally reliable.
After a 564 mile trip with only one stop for more fuel, I got out of the car and felt fresh, ready to drive some more.
I average about 21mpg on daily trips, up to about 26 mpg on a run, so it's quite thirsty. But what the hell, why buy a 4.2 if you are worried about the petrol costs?
It looks better and handles fantastically too.
I would not trade for the equivalent BMW or Merc.
I purchased the Jaguar after test driving all the usual Merc, BMW, Audi etc and was glad I did.
I kept the car for three years before trading it in for the 4.2 V8 Sport.
It was a fantastic drive, quick, reliable, nice looking and the best car I had owned.
Go buy the Jag.
Follow up my post of 6th July, I'm still no further forward on the repair to the S-type.
It has been three months now and there is no date in sight for the replacement part needed.
My advice is that if you are thinking of buying one, be sure that you can do without your transport for months at a time as Jaguar consider this normal.
By 25,000 miles following have been replaces. 2 injectors, pre-heater pipe (fault filled car with fumes),centre consul information unit,drivers seat motor and steering rack. Car reluctant to start in cold weather (dealer failed to fix on 3 attempts). Has never achieved anywhere near quoted mpg (I appreciate they never do but a 30% lower figure?). General Manager at dealer said I must have been unlucky! Won't be again as I will not buy another Jaguar.

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…
