Who cares about prestige when I get to have the last laugh? I had been looking to buy a used Jag S Type, a new X Type or Lexus GS300, but when I saw what the Kia offered (including price advantage) and after only 2 minutes into a test drive, there was no contest and 9 months after buying, am delighted with the car. A word of criticism however: there is understeer and the vehicle wallows a bit on tight curves.
Clean up the understeer and slight instability on acute corners.
