    Default Huh?

    Looks like Jag to me too. As for the Taurus... the most horrible thing to do to them was to let them sit a bit too long in front of the fireplace - how else can you explain that droopy yucko styling!

    actually I've got to agree with you Alfa. They've taken a fairly bland shopping trolley and made it look like a fun weekend toy!

    No need to argue about taste and colors...
    What I am wondering is if they need that kind of "presence" to sale their cars ?
    Well, ok, Mercedes and BMW have done it ... so when will we have an Infiniti Luxoracingsedan ?

    SInce Ford I think now owns Jaguar, the Jag's have taken a somewhat Taurus look... I did like to look of the older cars better, although the old ones had a reputation for visiting the shop a lot... WHat the heck, the only jag I ever wanted was an early 60's E type ..

    Yeah, that Taurus reference is probably not fair...I think it's more like: S-type=Taurus, X-type=Lincoln LS. Of the four, I have test-driven three and rented one and can affirm they are all cheesey, plastic-coated in burlwood, fit and finish nightmares, loud, squeek-and-rattletraps. Jaguar should be embarrased to put their marque on these (especially the s-type). The grand old cat has perhaps gone up a bit in reliability and ease-of-service, but these are built like American cars now. Yuck.

    As an aside, is the Lincoln LS available as itself or something else in other parts of the world? The real question: Is it offered with the V-8 mated to the 5 speed? Over here you can only get the 'sport version' with the v-6 and the v-8 comes with an auto.
