2004 Jaguar S-Type R 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

This car is the worst luxury car that I have ever had. It has been in repair 8 times in two years. four for transmission problems and four for electronic/computer issues. Air conditioner continues to go on the blink as well as the entire dashboard. The only thing good is the car has a big engine and handles well.


Best Features

Engine size.


Worst Features

Bigger gas tank, trunk and back seat and build a better design. Mechanically this car is terrible.

2004 Jaguar S-Type R 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I've owned German cars for the past 20 years. This S-Type has given me 16 months of trouble free ownership. The power is outstanding. I love the DVD nav system, the adjustable pedals, and the great ride. Just a fun car to drive.


Best Features

Nav System Adjustable Pedals


Worst Features

Satellite Radio

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Styling and the perormance is second to none.


Worst Features

A little more sound proof material.... I'm spoiled with the XJ8VDP, which is wonderfully quiet. This car is good but not as quiet.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Fabulously adjustable seating. Unique classic styling.

Review

Took advantage of marketing support of $7500 and traded perfect 03 S-type 3.0 for the s-type R. No disappointments at all. What power and wonderful seats! Nav/DVD is superb. Would make no changes in the new S-type R except to have synthetic motor oil standard to extend engine life.


Best Features

PLU POWER!
