    2002 Jaguar S-Type - 3.0L V6

    Pros: Reverse sensors.

    Cons: JAGUAR...It should have had comfortable heated seats & woodgrain on the entire dash area.

    Advice: Have it completely checked out by a licensed Jaguar tech if it's used.

    This was my ideal dream car. I've owned several other luxury cars and I have to be honest...this car looks beautiful, it handles well BUT it should have been more luxury on the inside. I wasn't impressed with the normal interior. It's not roomy and there is very little storage space inside...I love it but I can't compare it to my Lexus LS400 or my Infiniti Q45T. I bought it anyway because it's still a great car and I love the whole exterior look of it...

    2002 Jaguar S-Type - 3.0L V6

    Pros: Road handling

    Cons: Lack of back seat room

    Advice: Good car to buy, unless you need to carry around lots of passengers.

    Nice comfortable ride, handles road well. Back seat room not as big as it should be for a car of this size.

    2002 Jaguar S-Type - 3.0L V6

    Pros: The grill and head light design in the front; very unique and different from any car today.

    Cons: The rear looks way too much like a Ford Taurus. Interior leather looks kind of cheap.

    Advice: Test drive other makes in the same class to make sure it is what you really wanted.

    I test drove both the manual and automatic transmission. I personally prefer the manual as I felt it has more umph! as far as control and acceleration. Although, there is a bit of tension in the clutch, but it could be because I'm used to the clutch of my Acura. The drive was smooth and quiet and handled well at tight turns.
