Jaguar S-type 4.2 V8 R
Last month's report, you may recall, ended on something of a cliff-hanger. The Jag had developed a number of intermittent faults, starting with the central locking plipper going on the blink, then sundry warning lights illuminating, and finally a journey to France being disrupted by an occasional but unsettling jolt from the rear axle. Back in England, its next trick was refusing to start for 20 minutes and then, just for good measure, it set off its alarm when parked.
