Pros

Excellent combination of qualities

Cons

Quite preposterous fuel consumption - on LPG it would be the perfect car!

A Drink Problem!!! — Excellent performance if a little sluggish on the kick down. Fantastic grip in the dry, agile, even though heavy. Fantastic brakes. Terrible grip in the wet, verging on the scary, and I return 15.1 mpg long term average, which is really quite preposterous. Great combination of safety, comfort, with reasonable fun. Generally fairly reliable, but you need to find a specialist independent for servicing - which is no problem in Dorset. Fast family car, still much quicker than 95% of cars on the road, and very cheap to buy if you can afford the insurance and fuel!!!

Buy One. — Love the car... Fast, and goes where ya put her. The luxury options are there, with all the conviences of a BMW or AUDI. The ride is un surpassed and suprisingly it hasnt once left me stranded. Very reliable and is my daily driver!!

Atrractive, But With Many Flaws. — I dislike my 2000 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 because since buying it in 2003, I've averaged $1200 every 6 months in repair bills. It's a never ending saga. Just when I think I have fixed everything that can break on the car, it all starts again. VERY frustrating and VERY expensive. New catalytic converters, new coil packages (it's on its THIRD set), complete brake assemby replacement on two occasions, transmission work, radiator repair, front-end assembly replacement.

Pros

Love to drive. People think its awsome you own a Jag.

Cons

Cant stand to keep fixing the piece fo crap

Headache!! — Sick of fixing it every couple months. Bad ignition coils CONSTANTLY!! Luckily I fixed the suspension/drivers window/air conditioning/cooling system, before the warranty was up. Now I just have to keep changing the coils ALL THE TIME! I love to drive this car though. I love when people think they can pass me and then I decide to blow right past them. Gas mileage is what you would expect for a 4L V8. Only takes premium gas which sucks.

Nice looking, nice pick up, comfortable ride. Good handling, breaking, acceleration.

Does poorly in snow without snow tires. Older car and parts are expensive. Poor relative gas mileage.

Nice Car For Sunday Afternoon Drives — I loved the look when I bought it and still do today. In recent years I have put in a new starter, new tires, new breaks, new thermostat and these things add up in cost. You have to love cars and enjoy the mechanical upkeep.

Cheap And Fun To Drive — I bought this car used and the value drops precipitously but the fun remains - quirky British controls,funny looking and yet attractive, sounds and drives great, leather and wood trim and fast. 24MPG on hiway was ok, too. I moved on to a 2000 XK which is more advanced in every way.

My Car Is My Friend — I love the make and model of my car. it really takes off. I very happy with my car. the gas mileage, maintenance and repair costs are high. I need studs and I can't avoid them at this time. This car's acceleration, braking and handling is out of this world. I feel safe and in control driving my care but sometimes I am going to fast and have not noticed it at all. My car is so fun to drive. I get so many compliments.

Pros

This is definately a powerful luxury car, it hugs the road, and goes where you want it to as quick as you want it as smooth as could be.

Cons

Jaguar parts if needed are expensive, but well worth it.

Sleek, Beautiful, Fast And Sporty. — I absolutely love driving this car. It combines the best of both worlds, luxury and performance. After driving this car and putting it to the test you too will fall in love with it. It just is not a family car by no means.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — Driving is both smooth and responsive, depending on the Sports mode. 0-60 is about 7 seconds. Revs at just over 2K at the Speed limit so I guess 150 tops. Build quality is great. only problem found is no CD player.

lack of Jaguar-ness compared to the XJ

Your First Step Onto The Jaguar Ladder — Having owned many XJ series Jaguars I decided to get an S Type. Its a lovely car, especially if you`ve never had a Jaguar before, but its not as special as an XJ.
