Don't believe the hype

2002 Jaguar S-Type Sedan V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Purchased for girlfriend. Test drove the Audi A6, Lexus GS300, Acura RL, and Q45. She had to have the Jag for the status I guess. I was very disgusted in her decision. You get very little vehicle for the price you pay. Paid for the "Premium" stereo, sound quality is marginal at best. Single cupholder? Completely unacceptable for a 50,000 vehicle. Seats are not that comfortable. Sloppy transmission. Very poor resale and , I don't care what other reviewers have said, there are too many cheap looking interior bits. When comparing this car side by side with the above mentioned, it is VERY difficult to understand the logic in the purchase. Must be the cat on the hood.

Review

Bought the S-Type a year ago. Love the looks. Mercedes/BMW/Acura all look too plain and old to me, especially the cheap-looking interior on Beamers. S-type definitely has something exotic and different about it. Hand-carved wood/lamb leather/other interior parts are top-notch. V6 engine wishes for better performance. 240 horses aren’t adequate for the heavy body. Acceleration is quite jumpy, especially when downshifting. Very nice handling for the price of tight suspension. Had very loud clicking noise in steering wheel shaft, took it to dealership 4 times before they finally took it apart and replaced it. Overall, it's a very good vehicle and definitely the biggest head-turner for the price

Car as art ...

Review

Beautiful 2001 4.0 bought at the end of the last model year. Fuel economy is good for engine size/car weight. Outstanding vehicle in every respect, especially "head-turning quotient" orignated by Warren Brown. (His summary of the S-Type: smooth, powerful, stylish -- it's car as art.) Hard to understand previous customer's so-so numerical review in light of his/her verbal praise. See to believe...

Review

This is my first Jag replacing my 5th Mercedes, the last being a very reliable 91' 300E. So far the build quality of this 2002 S-Type Jag and the V8 gas mileage is surprisingly good. Hope the reliability/durability hold up per current JD Power ratings. BTW, I just changed the rear mufflers and now the V8 snarls nicely.
