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.

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.

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.

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
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

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.
