Jaguar S-Type, Sedan
#396 of 1064 TOP GEAR 2002 Motoring Survey -
Sep 05, 2002 (6:03 pm)
"How good is your car? How good is the car you're thinking about buying? And where can you unearth the truth? Here, that's where.
We've spoken to over 37,000 motorists, who've given us the full low-down on 120 models and 33 manufacturers. They've provided us - and you - with uniquely unbiased, spin-free information on every aspect of reliability, running costs, driving experience and treatment received from dealers."
The Jaguar S-TYPE was rated the top car in its segment, and out of 120 cars, it rated number 10! Here were the rankings for its segment:
1.) Jaguar S-TYPE
2.) Audi A6 and A6 Avant (wagon)
3.) Saab 9-5
4.) Mercedes-Benz E-Class
5.) BMW 5-Series
6.) Volvo S70 and V70 (wagon)
7.) Jaguar XJ6 and XJ8
8.) Rover 800
9.) Vauxhall Omega
That looks pretty good!

All European, not one Japanese or American? Looks suspicious to me.

It's not suspicious - it's obviously a European survey. We don't have Rovers and Vauxhalls here.
#399 of 1064 Yes, the survey was from Europe. TOP GEAR is a European publication.

Sorry, I just assumed everyone would know it was a European survey. They did have some Japanese cars that did very well like the Lexus IS 200, and there were cars from GM and Ford's brands on the list as well.
