~ ~ I dropped into the local Jag dealer recently to have a look at the new X-Type that has just been launched here in Ireland. Disappointment for the mad cabbie; none in stock. (all sold!!) But never having been known as a fella to waste an opportunity, I instead got my hands on another little...

Nice Boot Size. Good Looks.

Build Quality, Ride Quality, Comfort

OK, Hello Everyone! I'm looking to replace my 607. I have to tell you why. Basically I bought a Friday car from a dodgey forecourt and I just would like to sell it (now that all the problems have been sorted! as it just doesn't feel like MY car any more) If I had the money, I'd go out and buy a...

“My life with the 'S' type”

Looks

Not as quiet as I had expected

I have owned my 3litre auto 'S' type since June 1999 and have covered over 40,000 miles. The car was supplied with most of the possible accessories (except satellite nav - far too expensive, and CAT suspension). The car was an early production model so (I suspect) suffered from some extra...

“What a car”

Speed, comfort, style, class

None 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...

“To drive it, is to love it”

published 27/10/2000

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...

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...

“A Classic Car”

Having seen many other cars in this sector I finally took the 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...

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...

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...

“Great car”

engine

interior

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...

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

Looks nice, drives nice

Extremely 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...

had a 106 rally for 7 years,no problems.bought a 1999 s type 2 years ago and....problems problems problems.its a unreliable piece of workmanship.electrical issues comes 1st with very expensive consequences.to say these cars are are supposedly reliable stress free motors would be a under statement.im always on edge when i driveing mine,thinking something is eventually going to go wrong.its not what you suppose to think driving a jaguar,,is it.so costly to buy,fair enough,but maintenance fee,s are appaling considering random things keep going wrong with them(wear and tear)fair enough.all i can say is people,,,DONT BUY 1,unless you like splashing out on repairs and can handle the stress of them going wrong
