The S-Jaguar turns heads when you are
driving. However the ride is rough in
comparison to our Lexus. You have to
push the doors hard for them to shut.
The contour seats looks good, but the
edges of seats when getting in are
hard. Once in and seated, the seats
are comfortable. The headrest are also
hard. The car was purchase on 31 Jul
04. We had an engine check light come
on in Aug 04. They had to replace the
gas tank. No other mechanical problems
with the car. Service personnel are
very friendly. Great styling.
The exterior styling of the car turns
heads. The interior styling with the
combination wood looks great. The
instrument panel and steering wheel has
all of the gagets easily accessable for
The rough ride needs to be improved.
The headrest and the edges of the seats
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
Exterior looks, most unique car on the
road, almost statuesque. The interior
luxury is second to none, my previous
Lexus interior doesn't hold a candle
to the Jag. Having the back seats
fold forward is a huge plus not found
in many luxury cars of this type.
THE STEREO! An IN-Dash CD changer
would be nice too.
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.
This car has head-turning good looks.
The back seat folds down so that long
items can fit in the trunk. It
accomodates both cassettes and CD's
