Review of the 2004 Jaguar S-Type

  • A great all-around sedan, the S-Type is truly a Jaguar in terms of style, form and function.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Elegantly appointed interiors, solid all-around performance, classic British styling, full load of standard safety equipment.

  • Cons

    A few cheap interior bits, high price, fussy J-gate shifter.

  • What's New for 2004

    Jaguar adds adaptive cruise control to the options list, and a six-speed automatic transmission is now standard on the V6 version -- the five-speed manual remains a no-cost option.

Vehicle: 2004 Jaguar S-Type 4.2 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

This is a beautiful car. If it only ran as good as it looks. I had a 2001 S Type which was an excellent car. However, the reliability went south on this one. It has been in the shop many times - sometimes for weeks. Jaguar was not particularly responsive or compassionate about selling me a lemon. I won't buy another jaguar.




Stunning -- performer,,,and beautiful

What a wonderful automobile. I bought this for my wife after I had a great experience with my 2004 XJ8VDP. This car has the same engine and transmission and is a wonderful performer. Fit and finish is superb. The car park people put it in the front of the restaurant all the time. Jaguar dealer service is also extraordinary.




Finally: distinction!

At last, a car with truly unique style, excellent performance and a comparably reasonable price. After 12 years lounging in the top Lexus and Benz models (looking more generic every day) I couldn't be more pleased with the 4.2. Comments from public daily. The multi-adjust cockpit seating is virtually build-to-suit ... very comfortable. Exceptionally balanced handling.

this vehicle is not only sleek looking but performs as well as it looks. the price is not to far out of line considering that you are purchasing a work of art. nothing else compares




Even better than i thought

Vehicle: 2004 Jaguar S-Type 4.2 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

I've had my 04 S-Type for a week now and couldn't be happier. The V8 engine is quiet, yet very powerful. The car rides smooth, I don't feel every bump in the road, even with 18 inch rims on the car. A testiment to the suspension. The interior is very well thought out, a monster upgrade from the 02 model. People notice this car, so be prepared to get lots of attention in it. As for negatives, the upgraded Alpine system is good, but nowhere near the Bose systems found in many luxury cars. Also, ALL of the front speakers are in the doors, the system needs some tweeters on the dash for a more complete sound in the front of the car.




My dream car

I have really enjoyed owning this car. The v8 engine has plenty of pep and power and a great sound. It has never let me down and I have had no major problems with it. I drive this car around just for the pleasure of it and expect to always have one of these.
