A Sporty New Jag - John Prescott Please Note

AdvantagesSee opinion

DisadvantagesSee opinion

"...model from the British manufacturer Jaguar made its first public appearance at the Bologna Motor Show in Italy in December, 2000. This is the car that Jaguar (now a Ford-owned subsidiary) hope will endear them to the more youthful buyer, and manage to lure them away from competitors such as BMW and Audi. ~ ~ The S-Type Sports was the model in this range that the Jaguar designers really went to town on. At first glance, the first change that ..." Read review

Jaguar - Ford, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE????

AdvantagesNice Boot Size. Good Looks.

DisadvantagesBuild Quality, Ride Quality, Comfort

"...brings my nicely onto the Jaguar S-Type. I have test driven TWO S-Types now. The Standard S-Type S and the S-Type SE which has all the goodies. Both 2001 (same age as my 607) I'm shocked quite frankly. The Bog standard S-Type S The first one I drove was an utter dissapointment, I thought stepping into a Jag would be like stepping into a whole other league. Boy was I wrong. It felt like I had actually stepped into something worth nothing. The ..." Read review

My life with the 'S' type

AdvantagesLooks

DisadvantagesNot as quiet as I had expected

"...have been kept to the Jaguar guarantee of £150 + vat (every 10,000). Fuel consumption on high speed motorway journeys can top 30mpg, but 26mpg is the average. One amazing feature of the car is Jaguars ability to change the entire software when in for a service. The latest software upgrade (to cure a minor problem with the airconditioning) has had an unbelievable effect on the 0-60mph performance. Jaguar now let the car rev to over 7,000 rpm before ..."

What a car

AdvantagesSpeed, comfort, style, class

DisadvantagesNone to think of

"Well first of all you are probably thinking how on earth does a 22 year old female get to drive a very fast 3.0litre S-type Jaguar? Well its not mine and its my dads. But I get to drive it! Bonus! Out of all the cars I have driven over the last 5 years, which is quite a few! This is the best. It is a dream drive, handles well, takes corners well even at high speeds. Yes it should be for the amount of money you have to pay for it, but not everything ..." Read review

A Classic Car

AdvantagesLooks, comfort, agility

DisadvantagesSpeed

"...plunge and looked at the Jaguar S-Type. This model is easily the best S-Type that Jaguar make, this is because of many things. The gearbox is very slick and easy to use, the road holding is superb, the interior makes you feel very special, it is a very typical Jaguar. If there is such a thing as a typical Jaguar. If I have 1 gripe it is the acceleration, it could be that little bit better, but they do make 4.0 litre version if speed is your thing. ..." Read review

Jaguar, prestige and class? Not any more.

AdvantagesExcellent Jaguar Warranty. Dealer service very good. Turns heads.

DisadvantagesNOT reliable. Poor built quality. Jaguar DO NOT return emails!!

"I once owned a Jaguar X-Type and had may problems. I decided to part-ex it for an S-type. Since I purchased my S-Type I have had nothing but problems. I do not expect a car that cost £36500 new to be so poor. I have had rain water in the luggage compartment, jogging when accelerating and constant misfire. I have noticed that there are lots of Ford connector etc. in and around the car. Is Ford's intervention the problem? Trim rattles and do not ..." Read review

Great car

Advantagesengine

Disadvantagesinterior

"The Jaguar S-Type is a sound entry into the luxury car market. The 3.0 V6 is smooth refined and if worked hard extremely powerful. Handling is good for a car in this class but lacks some feel. It can also be tricky to place the S-Type on the road at first but it soon becomes a distant problem. My one major complaint is the interior of which is only average. In my eyes the warm luxury cosseted feel of the XJ and XK models cannot be beaten. Whilst I ..." Read review

Take a trip back in time

AdvantagesGood looking, reliable, forward looking for an old car

DisadvantagesNone

"Why oh why Have jaguar named this not-oustanding example of a posh Rover 75 an "S-type"? It's just wrong. Jaguar made the original S type back in the 60s, and the "new S type" is nothing by comparision. It's a bit like the "new" Beatle, or the mini, it looks vaguely like the original (although I don't know why Jaguar called this one the S-type as firstly, it looks more like a Mark II, and secondly, the Mark II was certainly more popular being better ..."

AdvantagesEverything about it

DisadvantagesThe price

"Say Ooh Aah Jaguar Say Ooh Aah Jaguar! What can I say except OH BABY WHAT A CAR!!! And I'm a girly girlie, so that's really saying something. You just need to look at it, cuz everything about this car is damn special. It has special CATS suspension so it glides along like a dream and you don't even notice you're moving. It has luxurious leather seats (Mmmmmmm....) with seat warmers (lets face it, if you live in England then you need them). It comes ..." Read review

Quick review of Jaguar S-Type 3.0

"had my s-type 3.0 se for two and a half years now with no major faults. It was bought second hand and was one owner with full history. main dealer service chargers are way over the top but the beauty is there are many specialists keeping costs down. 29mpg on a run and 24 with my 16 foot caravan on is pretty good in my opinion. I would buy another but while this is running as good as it is I will keep her.what other car offers this level of comfort at what are now bargain prices. my car has the voice recognition option which lets you push a button on the steering wheel and then just tell the car what you want it to do like radio on or cd on track five etc. Pick a good s-type and you will not be disapointed

Jagua S-Type 3.0 car or heap of troubles....?

AdvantagesLooks nice, drives nice

DisadvantagesExtremely poor quality, unreliable

"Unfortunately, the S type Jaguar I bought is a reason to NEVER ever again buy a Jaguar. The car sells in Australia for about 110'000 Dollars, well in the price range of a luxury car, but it is extremely poor built. I got a 2000 model and have replaced gearbox, various expensive repairs on the motor and just recently, the famous COP (Coils-on Plugs) had to be replaced. The car looks beautiful, granted but the electric window mechanisms had to be replaced ..." Read review

To drive it, is to love it

Advantages

Disadvantages

"This is an absolute beauty of a car, with its luxurious leather interior and its 3.0 V6 engine. It has suprisingly good handling for a car with such style. The boot is great and can fit numorous suitcases in with ease and space. I particularly like the feel of the car. When driving the s-type you know you've got a car on your hands. The problem with all jags is the fuel cosumption and that it is literally impossible to get spare parts for the car. ..." Read review
