Thanks for the quick replies!
I know this is probably the wrong forum to say this on...but I'm also going to test drive an 01' S-Type Jaguar v8 with 38,000 miles and a 00' S-Type Jaguar v6 with 40,200 miles. The 00' is actually $1,500 more expensive and they're in about the same condition..Hmmmm?
I definitely prefer a v6 over the v8.
Avoid Jags at ALL costs. I used to work at a Land Rover/Jag dealership and I know first hand what unreliable wrecks these cars are. They make first generation Daimler-Chrysler Mercedes looks reliable. Sometimes they even make Land Rover look reliable. The cars (Jags) are great to look at, but that's where the fun ends. They simply don't compete with the best in the class and are a dealer service department's best friend (because they spend more time there then on the road). AVOID!
