JAGUAR S-TYPE 2.7d V6 4dr Auto (Review date: 9th January '14)

2

I owed my S Type for five month, it was my dream car and at first for about one month the car was fine it looked amazing with full factory fitted body kit / 18inch wheels and it drove as good as it looked it had lots of power and was the most comfortable car i have ever driven very nice, but then things started to go wrong big time, it started with the fuel filter leaking, next was one of the front break discs was rubbing so new front discs, after that was the break master cylinder, then the intercooler split and at the same time ihad to replace one of the radiator hoses and have the air conditioning re-gased as this needed to be removed at the same time, then the airbag light came on, so no working airbag, then i started to get a restricted performance light coming up on the dash and the car would not rev over 2000 RPM but the worst was to come the exhaust started to leak around the catalytic converters which would then come into the cabin as you where driving not good, in all this car cost me £2000 in repairs and thats not including the airbag or catalyic converters to be fixed as i have now sold the car. oh yes the boot is a joke and the car is a pig to park even with parikng sensors.

Owners hang on to these - with good reason

JAGUAR S-TYPE 2.7d V6 Sport 4dr Auto (Review date: 28th November '13)

4.8

The Jaguar looks dated on the outside (love it or hate it) but that meant it was an utter bargain second hand buy. It is a remarkable car to own and especially, to drive. Coming after a long line of BMW's and Mercedes' I am astonished every day I use it just how well the Jaguar goes - always engaging and entertaining; but also amazingly comfortable. Even after 120,000 miles it feels tight with no squeeks or creaks and the steering, suspension and handling all as new. The big twin turbo v6 pushes the car along at a thrilling pace when required, and with 40mpg + when cruising. Believe the write-ups that say 'you'd never know its a diesel' because it sounds fabulous, and very quiet.

Running costs have been very cheap and the car totally reliable, generally its been a far better bet financially than any of the German cars I have run. The cam belts were £800 and the (vulnerable) electric handbrake needed replacing; but so far thats all outside of (cheap) oil services every 15-20k.

I can see why many owners don't let their S Types go, I will struggle to think what to replace it with when the time comes.

JAGUAR S-TYPE 3.0 V6 SE 4dr Auto (Review date: 7th November '13)

4.8

Third Jaguar I have owned and by far the best. I shouldn't have listened to the dealer who told me they were rubbish. I owned a 2.0 sport x type estate and a 2.2 example. Lovely looking car but not a jag. My S type is the pre face lift model which I prefer. Not a fan of the rounded dash style. She is a beauty which cost me £1500 with 54000 miles on the clock. Forget about the fuel consumption just enjoy the ultra smooth drive and the comfort of the soft leather upholstery. Then press the S button and floor it. Fantastic (Don't leave the trip comp on actual though!!!). OK the body has a few dents, caused by trusting the sensors when reversing up to a skip, they stick out at the top, Doh! All in all my best car ever including Mercedes and BMW.

Unbeatable

JAGUAR S-TYPE 3.0 V6 SE 4dr Auto (Review date: 9th October '13)

A large very comfortable car. For it's size the economy is good and the performance is surprisingly good. A great car that is excellent value and very under rated.

Best car I ever owned

JAGUAR S-TYPE 3.0 V6 SE 4dr Auto (Review date: 17th September '13)

4.8

I used to be a BMW driver, then for a change I bought myself a Jaguar S Type. What a car .. I have owned it for 7 years and covered 90000 miles in it ( car now has 133K on the clock) and I love it. The car has never failed me. Admittedly, I have maintained it thoroughly and regularly and it shows in the drive. I have the built in satellite navigation which is simply amazing .. easy to use, really clear and super accurate .. much nicer to use than the BMW. The running costs are fine, I get 26-28 mpg around town and 29-30 on a run. Its super smooth, very comfortable, really quiet and the kids love it. It has the added bonus of that 'retro styling' so in-vogue today. I would recommend this car and guess what .. I just bought another one!

SUPERB SUCCESSOR TO MY X-TYPE

JAGUAR S-TYPE 3.0 V6 SE 4dr Auto (Review date: 2nd August '13)

4.8

I had an 2.5 litre X-Type for nearly 3 years and found it to be a great car. When I found that it had succumbed to the well known rust issue, I looked to make a change. I have always wanted an S-Type and it didn't take long to find a stunner. I have only had it for a few months but I have found it to be an absolute delight in every respect. It will respect your way of driving - if you want to pootle along it will give you a serene ride; if you need to, it will fly like the wind. The quality of finish is great as is the attention to detail. I have been blown away by this car and I hope that it will be with me for many years because I cannot see myself driving one of the new generation cars!

Jaguar 2.7 diesel spirit

JAGUAR S-TYPE 2.7d V6 Spirit 4dr (Review date: 27th May '13)

4.3

I've owned many different marques and have to say that this Jag is a cracker. Smooth, powerful, comfortable and economical it's a great drivers car. Don't buy one for its huge internal space but everything else really works. Later cars are best and the diesels take some beating.

Classy, smooth, fast and reliable

JAGUAR S-TYPE 3.0 V6 SE 4dr Auto (Review date: 22nd May '13)

4.5

I can't fault the performance of this car it is as good as new to drive, not the cheapest car to run averaging around 23 mpg, Unfortunately commuting 60 miles every day needed to be a bit more realistic with fuel ecconomy but will be sorry to part with her.
