Jaguar 'S' for stylish
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: I always smile when I walk towards the car - it just looks so stylish.
People look at the car with admiration and it feels great to be the owner.
Cons: Not a lot of space for rear seat passengers.
One bad blind spot on the passenger side; you have to be aware of it at all times when turning right.
Overall: This was my second Jaguar and I remain totally sold on them. Great car for the price. It looks so much more stylish than other cars on the road. I just love driving it...

run, don't walk, from the S-Type
Source: Cars.com

..."I bought my 2000 S Type in 2005 with less than 50k miles on it.
It's now 2010 and I have 98K miles on it. The list of issues I've had with this car is long.
If you haven't had these issues on yours, you will one day soon: Heater failure,
cooland reservoir failure, oil leaks, cooland leaks, wiring issues, other electronic issues, air compressor failure, catalist replacement, multiple sensor failures, ...
These are just the big issues. S Types (and Jags in general) are famous for their lack of quality, and this S Type is living proof. I will never again own anything made by...

The Jag Man

Excellent CPO Program
Source: Cars.com

..."I have been driving Jags for 6 years with very little problems until now.
My 05 S-Type Sport V8 Limited Edition with XK8 Interior just had to have the tranny replaced and the radiator.
Somehow radiator fluid was getting into the tranny and the end result is a new transmission and radiator at 40,000 miles.
No out of pocket cost to me at all. The performance of this car is amazing for the money.
When you buy these cars 3 years old you cannot miss, you get them 50 cents on the dollar with a 3-year bumper to bumper still left"...

The Car to buy!!
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: I really love this car. Looks better than anything else on the road in it's price range.
The nav works great, the Sirius radio is a nice touch, and rain sensing wipers is nice as well.
Cons: I should have went for the R. Acceleration could be a little better for the 3.0.
Problem with the tachometer but the dealer will replace soon. Blue tooth does not appear to be upgradeable to handle newer phones. Overall: I would buy another one...

...Pros: everything Cons: othing Overall: buy this car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...

#10
Nice car but way over priced
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Seat comfort. Ride. Braking. Acceleration. Cons: Radio horrible.
Overall: This is a very nice car. Comfortable, quiet, handles very well, lots of acceleration.
Radio reception and audio quality is terrible. This car is way over-priced.
I leased it, a $56,000 car. Previously had 3 series BMW, much better. My wife has Toyota Avalon, just as nice. Dealer is just too full of themselves. For $35,000 maybe, but at $50K+, not worth it...
