2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan


Review

This is the worst luxury (?) car I have ever had. Never know what is going to fail next. How can Jaguar get away with such an awful car? I have spent thousands repairing this car. Do yourself a favor and buy something else. Anything else.

2000 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 4dr Sedan


Review

This is perhaps the best looking sedan ever made. The four round headlights and complimenting hood, surrounding a classic "tennis racket" shaped grille are distinct and perfect. The stance of the car makes it look ready to pounce. Pounce it does, with the powerful, smooth and modern 8. Jag got all the compromises right. Ride quality and handling are both superb without a bias toward one at expense of the other. The handling will greatly satisfy but the ride pampers, not punish. The power of the engine is always more than adequate, without need for high reving hysteria. Best, the Jag is as sexy as a sports coupe but works very well as a family sedan. Classic look and quality will age well.


Best Features

The cachet and allure of a sports coupe with the practicality of a well-sized sedan.


Worst Features

The interior benefited from the upgrades in materials and improved ergonomics, new seats, as car has evoved since introduction in 2000, but even the originals are quite good. The newest interiors are nothing short of sumptuous. Don't bother with the nav on older models, its nearly unreadable.

Review

While a great looking and driving car,
the quality and reliability
(=maintenance expense) for this
$50,000+ luxury car is bitterly
disappointing. Ownership costs for
maintenance alone exceeds $2000 per
year - from basic manufacturing
defects. Ford does not stand behind
this product. Consequently, I've
purchased my last Ford product.


Best Features

Appearance, roadability.


Worst Features

Build a reliable car. Window falls out of track; cooling system fails; $1400 to repair a defective tail light; $1300 to replace valve cover gasket and repair coil damage; etc etc. Show some respect for customer loyalty.

Review

Great car! This car is awesome to drive
and tons of fun. It has a terrific body
style. The only problem I have had is
getting it out of park at times, and if
it sits on even the slightest incline,
it becomes very difficult to get out of
park. I have been told this is a common
problem with this model.


Best Features

Driving. This car has awesome handling and takes curves with ease, and the body does not lean around curves. I also love the ability to roll down the windows and sunroof with the key remote.


Worst Features

See above regarding gear shift. I also was told the radio and other features were user friendly, but this was a joke...it is the least user friendly of any car I have ever owned.
