Summary:

It's a Jag, I love it

Faults:

Nothing unusual; oil change, spark plugs, air filter, cabin filter. In a few words, regular maintenance.

General Comments:

Really great car. I love it. Everywhere I go, I have people looking at it. I enjoy the driving and the comfort, and I'm not a mechanic, and I do all the car maintenance. It's a Jag; luxury, comfort and style.

It's normal to expect a high cost of labor and parts; I buy parts online and work on the car myself, and it's not expensive. Love it.

Summary:

Love it

Faults:

Door locks x 2.

Transmission fault x 1.

General Comments:

I love this car's style and comfort.

Very reliable, and averages 27 mpg.

Spent less than £1000.00 on servicing and parts in the last eight years. NEVER been to Jaguar for service. Transmission just rebuilt by local company £950.00.

Never had problems with windows, door pillars.

I do not nurture this car. Had it up to 130mph; just wind noise and more to go.

Looking at the forum, I guess I have been lucky. I will run it until it falls apart. Just can't find anything else. Like the new XF, but the style of the S is better..

Summary:

It is fun to drive, but will be expensive to repair once out of warranty

Faults:

All four window regulators replaced.

Air flow meter replaced.

Engine coil replaced.

Trunk leaked rain water.

Coolant overflow tank replaced.

Engine thermostat replaced.

Engine cooling fan control replaced.

Steering wheel column bearing replaced.

O2 sensor replaced.

General Comments:

The performance of the 4.0 S-Type is super and it is a pleasure and thrill to drive.

The gas mileage is much better than I expected getting as much as 27.6 MPG on a 200 mile thip at 70-80 MPH country roads and some in town.

My complaint is the trips to the dealer. Too many problems, one required towing. I bought extended warranty, and I have never done that before.

Well Ur comment about the jaguar is very correct. I purchased a jaguar s type 4.0 v8 last year since then it has had numerous common problems including fan belt, radiator, rain sensors, windows, pistons, ball joints, the list is much longer overall I have spent a staggering £5.000 sterling on this car. I wasn't really impressed with its speed an internal design.

A handsome package

Impressive voice-control technology. Powerful acceleration. Just don't let the computer traction control fool you into thinking that the car can corner at very high speeds; it won't.
