About Jaguar S-Type

The days of the floating luxury liner on four wheels have long since gone, yet there are still a number of consumers that prefer a softer ride to one that feels like it's attached to rails. In the European premium luxury market, most cars favor the sport sedan formula, but not the 2008 Jaguar S-Type. Not that the stylishly distinctive Jaguar can't hold its own in the handling arena, it just produces a more sedate ride. Driving devotees who require more will want to check out our review of the performance-oriented S-Type R. Where its competitors boast of performance first, the S-Type touts a luxurious interior, comfortable ride and more traditional instrumentation, free of an overabundance of technological gadgetry. This is the last production year for the S-Type. Its replacement, an all-new, sportier model dubbed the XF, debuts next March.

"Bought my 2001 Jag used for a steal, fortunately I also purchased an extended warranty. I love the styling and the comfort, just a beautiful car. I have had to have the transmission replaced (thank heavens for the warranty). The only real complaint is that the car rides so low that I am always scraping the front under carriage. (Have had it replaced twice)."

"I love this car. Great comfort, style, and everyone always says "Who's driving the Jag?" Only minor computer problems, but dealer worked them out. Overall, couldn't have a better vehicle."
