i HAD PREVIOUSLY LEASED MY 2000 jAGUAR
S TYP AND LOVE THE CAR. HAD NO PROBLEMS
WITH IT wHEN MY LEASE WAS EDNDING
jAGUAR BOUGHT OUT MY LEASE EARLIER THAN
THE ORG 36 MONTHS AND PUT ME IN A
2004, tHE SALES PERSON SAID IF I LOVE
MY FIRST JAG THIS NEXT ONE WAS EVEN
BETTER DUE TO THE CHANGES JAGUAR MADE.
WELL THEY WERE WRIGHT. THE CAR IS PURE
LUXURY AND SPORT IT DRIVES ITSELF. AND
IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE IT
THE AWESOME DESIGN OF CAR.
THEY JUST SHOULD HAVE KEPT THE ORGINGAL
CD UNIT IN CAR AND THE RADIO
INFORMATION IN THE DASHBOARD.
When replacing our 540iA Sport, I
learned that a loaded E-500 or 540iA
were close in price to the S-Type R
(sans nav). Intrigued, I took a test
drive and found the Jag's overall
power, acceleration, steering,
handling, braking, luxury and
refinement to be significantly superior
to either the MB or BMW. I purchased
the Jaguar and after some 10,000
trouble-free miles, I can report
nothing but satisfaction. To suggest
that this car is overpriced considering
the competition is absurd. It leaves
all manner of 540s, E-500s, etc. in its
dust; while not in the same performance
league as the new E-55, RS-6 or M5,
these cars cost some 20K more.
Torque on demand, superb turn-in for a
sedan, very good steering feel and
feedback, excellent brakes with no
fade, very comfortable sport seats,
1. Full auto-manual control of 1st gear.
2. Limited-slip differential.
3. More rapid transmission shifts.
This must be the most beautiful car on
the road. Very solid. Great quality.
The engine is much happier at higher
RPMs and lacks a little in low-end
torque but not really a problem unless
you what to "burn rubber" frequently.
Get the 4.2 if this is important to
you. But you MUST GET THIS CAR. I love
it more as I drive it more. I'm going
to buy this car at the end of the lease
and drive it forever OR give it to my
wife who is already maneuvering for it
at lease's end and get another new one.
