Only a $3000 discount for one year old model and 5000 miles is horrible. It's a used car!!!! I would think a 3-4000 discount on the new one (2008) seems about right but use the main part of Edmunds to check it out. You might want to get some bids from other dealers and if they won't meet the price, buy else where.
Absolutely forget any idea of this being a collector's car. Value will sink like a rock as soon as you drive off the lot and will stay there until it is rust. I love my 04 S but understand the financial cost of that love.
I agree that from what I have seen, I like my old model more. Also NEVER buy the first year of any model. But from their point of view, they must update or die. The demographic mix must get younger to sale the cars. As they say "You can sell a young mans car to an old man but you can't sale an old mans car to a young man."

Given the pricing just announced for the XF, who the heck is going to buy a new 2008 S-Type ????

This is both a serious and an "INTELLIGENT" reply.
"Your" dealer is hiding the swampland from you.
There is no, repeat, NO legitimacy to this offr.
Not only are you being "offered" an absolutely confidence deal on a USED CAR, you are also being gouged in that there is "no waranty".
I don't know where you are however, it is easy enough to search for other same/similar type Jags in other areas as you obviously have access to the internet.
BTW-That is how I found my almost perfect 1993 XJS convertible.
I found it at a legitimate dealer in texas and I am in WI.
Tell this con artist that you KNOW what he is attempting to to to your checkbook and will remember it.

Thank you xjsguy for your reply. I did find exactly what I wanted from another local Jaguar dealership. The salesman was not pushy and very informative. I had my pricing information with me and it worked out for us...Supposedly $1,000 over dealer invoice and he threw in custom pinstriping. I met with the artist to discuss color options and had my initials put on the door (very small and discreet). I pick it up tomorrow (Saturday). This salesman did overstep his bounds, however, when I had to meet with him twice on my own, without my husband, he started to call me "sweetie" and "babe"...also found opportunities to touch me on several occassions...putting his hand on my back, shoulder and arm. He's an older, chauvanistic guy...days are past for him...(my opinion) who still thinks he's 35 at 70...a yucky, old man as far as I am concerned...Looks kind of like Bob Barker..!
Anyway, I'm happy with my 2008, black S-type Jaguar...I've already researched the snow tires for it...although I don't really need to be out in the bad weather anymore..
Best of luck to you! (whomever you are..!) Best Regards, Marchgirl PS. I'm in the beautiful Northeast!

We had a brief discussion about swow tires on the Jagtalk forums at http://www.jagdriver.com/forum/index.php last week. You might want to check it out.
Congratulations on the new S and getting what you want at the appropriate price.

#969 of 1065 Engine Misfires under load

I have a 2002 S-Type 4.0 with 80,000 miles. Recently tuned, but still misfires when under load (acceleration) in Drive. Runs very smooth at cruising speed. All other gears, no problem. Also misfires occasionally when idling. Anyone had a similar problem...with a solution? Thanks.

I bought a used '06 S Type 3.0. Am extremely happy with it, but need to add Bluetooth capabilityand wouldlike to be able to use IPOD.
I'm in LA.
Any suggestions on where to take it for reliable advice?

Nov 27, 2007 (8:17 am)
Thanks for the reply. I did check the ignition coils, and I "think" I may have found one misfiring intermittently. Will see when the new one comes in and I install. (8 OF THEM AT $70 EACH!!)
