2001 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 Litre V8 from North America
The best value for a luxury car with performance
Not one thing to complain about, other than Jag should have built this car sooner.
This is by far the best car I've ever owned! My previous car was a 1998 BMW 540 and it doesn't compare with the Jag.
The BMW was nice for racing, but how often do you dothat?
The S-Type is fast, comfortable and well designed for everyday use. Not to mention the reasonable price.
After owning an 1988 XJ6, with all the normal frustrating problems I thought I would never own another Jaguar. They (and Ford) proved me wrong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 2000 Jaguar S Type. It's probably the worst investment I have ever made. The dealer could not repair the coolant sensor so Jag Corporation instructed the technician to disengage it. Does a company have the right to disengage a feature of an automobile under warranty without asking the owner or without some compensation? The justification for doing so was, "the 6-cyliner vehicles don't have one." Every window regulator in this vehicle has been replaced, one at a time. Instead of recalling these vehicles with obviously defective regulators--the technician said hundreds had been replaced--Jag corp repaired them one at a time, hoping, I think, that at least one of them would outlast the warranty, and the owner of the vehicle would have to pick up the tab or at least part of it. That's exactly what happened to me.
The car is in the shop now with a rattling in the front of the engine. For the reasons above--and the fact that the last time I had it at the dealer the technician failed to sufficiently tighten the oil filter--I have my car at a local shop, not the dealer.
There have been other problems.
Ford (Jag Division) has not acted responsibly in these cases.
