2006 Jaguar S-Type 4.2 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

My car is the VDP model with navigation. The car is very luxurious both inside and out, yet, handles and runs like a muscle car. On trips, the fuel economy this car gets, despite having 300 HP on tap, is excellent. On the interstate, the car is dead quiet, and, very comfortable on long trips. This is my third Jag, and, by far, the best one yet.

Favorite Features

1. The powertrain with the 4.2V8 coupled to the 6 speed ZF transmission. 2. The super comfortable seating. 3. The classic styling and gorgeous interior. 4. The excellent braking system. 5. The dash and controls layout.

Suggested Improvements

Some of the dash message displays are hard to read in the daytime. The Nav system is cumbersome to use, and, doesn't offer the functionality that some of the portable systems do.
