A Really Cherry Car
June 6, 2017
I was looking for a red 2008 Jaguar S-Type. I had owned a 2005 S-Type until a teen driving with his lights off on a dark and stormy night rear-ended me. I then got a Jaguar XJ8 which was okay. However, it was time for something new ("new" to me) and wanted to return to the S-Type for the handling, styling and comfort. While this car had more mile than I wanted, it had never been so much as bumped (hard to find in So. California) and had maintenance records showing that all schedule maintenance had been dealer performed and always on time. Additionally, the car came with brand new Continental tires (which I have always kept on my Jags). The transmission had been rebuilt and the break lines had been flushed each time the breaks had been changed. My mechanic even noticed that the dust plate behind the breaks was shiny like new. The prior owner (it was a one-owner vehicle) had really cared for this car and I got a great price on it. While I would have liked less miles on the car, the care given it helped me overcome my concerns. I love the color, I love the ride, and, most of all, I love the way it looks like a jag should look!
