2001 Jaguar S-Type from North America
The heater and A/C never work, just like everyone says.
Anytime I go over a bump, it sounds like the bottom is going to fall out.
The window motor broke.
I am scared to DEATH. I cannot afford a new car or to even repair this one. My kids talked me into buying it and I wish I bought the used Toyota I wanted. You can't kill a Toyota if you try.
To make matter worse, like everyone else says, the local dealer is the most HORRIFIC place to go to for repairs. They are just plain rude and uncaring.
In continuum with other comments, this was a dream car for me and it has become a nightmare.
I am all for the class action lawsuit that was mentioned by someone else. Let's go for it. The makers of the car don't care that we are all having the same problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Shouldn't have listened to the kids. They wanna be seen by their friends in a flashy car, but Mom just needed a reliable one, am I right? If you buy a Jaguar, be prepared to pay for a Jaguar.. that is if you can't afford high-priced repairs then maybe a higher-end luxury car isn't for you. And if a seller offers it to you cheap, that's a red flag. Sounds like Toyota would be a more sensible choice, and if the kids wanna complain, let 'em. LOL.
BTW if ya gotta pamper yourself, a used Lexus may be a less expensive way to go in the long run since they're made by Toyota as well, better reliability. Just my 2 cents..
