Only 4.0 L V-8 with low miles and factory Navigation that I know of for sale

"Being in the automotive business, I make it a point to browse different makes and models, different years, and do research on the so called "traditional problems" all different makes and models have. What I found (not to sound cliche) "mind blowing" is that when we looked across the whole United States of America, there were 4 different Jaguar Type S 4.0 Liter with the V-8 engine, and low miles (which we all know the name of the auto purchasing business is to purchase the car you want, with the lowest miles, most options, at the best price). Out of the 4 Jags for sale with the 4.0 liter engine, only 1 of those cars had the factory navigation that still works. I can literally say, that our Jaguar is one of a kind. Very low miles for a 2000 Type S (58,000 miles). It has every option available, meaning it has a multi-disc cd changer, it has the automatic sun roof, it has the factory navigation, and power everything (seats, doors, windows, etc.)."

Beautiful Beast

"Simply put this car is a beast. Quick and power, yet easy to driver and smooth and best of all RARE. If can find a STR in good condition buy it, don't let the Nay sayer scare you. If it has taken care it is simply an amazing car to own and no less reliable then you comparable BMW, Benz, Audi or Lexus. I know as i have own at least one of all of them. Maintenance is no more costly then the others. Even more affordable if you can do most of the maintenance yourself."

"This is the worst car I have ever owned and I’m 72 and have owned a lot! I have also had Jaguars, most notably the E-type series three, V12. Now that was a car! This load of junk was built when Ford owned Jaguar, and it has been a constant source of breakdowns, failures, and returns to the shop. Luckily I have been able to fix a lot of things myself. If not it would have cost three times what I paid when new. The funniest thing was when the head liner fell down. not just a bit of it, but the whole thing fell on to the seats in one lump. The car was still under warranty, but the dealer said the head liner came under, “wear and tear”, like seats and was not covered. I told the sales manager I didn’t sit on the ceiling and made a stink in the showroom, but I never got anywhere. It cost $600 for a new liner and I wrote to the factory in Coventry, UK, but never had a reply. I will never touch another Jag, ever."

"I bought this car on a private-party sale with just about 100k miles, and have driven it another 94k miles over the last four years. I bought it mostly because I always wanted a Jag and loved the S-type's styling... I never expected to be so pleasantly surprised. I've got the V6 with 6-speed auto transmission. Plenty of power, nimble, responsive, and very comfortable. I also get surprisingly good fuel economy averaging about 26-27mpg (with 30+on long highway trips). You can pick up a used Jag cheaper than a used Honda, but the downside is that repairs can be expensive and there's not a lot of shops that can handle Specialty Jag service. I've needed very little maintenance/repair work and fortunately can do most of it myself. That might be a consideration if you're thinking of buying one."
