Question about Jaguar S-Type

Hi:

I just purchased a 2005 Jaguar S-Type with 27K miles on it. The warranty will continue for 2.5 years. Several people have told me to sell it when the warranty ends; that its known for bad reliability and that repairs are extremely high in cost. I did a lot of research before my purchase and found that this class of Jag got very high consumer and expert reviews. However, do you agree.....at the end of the warranty I might be in trouble with this car. By the way, I take extremely good care of my cars and don't drive very much....I just traded in a 1999 Mazda Miata in excellent condition with only 56K miles on it....Got a wonderful tradein price from the dealer. Thanks!

Hey stacie young, In my honest opinion, if you take that good of your car it will be worth it in the long run. Much like the audi's manual transmission problems of the early 2000 models, if you take car of your car it will take care of you.
So i say yes.
Please post if you have more questions you would like addressed, I look forward to your posts.

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.


Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

When do you change the cam belt on the 2 litre sport,mine is 8 years old and has done 60000 miles


it should be done by time and miles, even when miles are low, it should be done by age, its false ecconomy not to replce it, as it will cost alot more if it snaps, change it now! asap. then every 4/5 years or 50k.

2005 Jaguar S-Type


I have a 55 plate 2.5 S Type. I bought it from a local Jag dealer, i had a few small problems but they sorted them out straight away. As they are not selling cars you will be able to get a good deal i would only use a Jag dealer ask for 1 or 2 years free servicing i got it. Dont buy a high milage vehicle it will cost you more in the long run. I love my car PS Get the highest spec you can ie SE plus.Hoped this helped.

Gearbox fault of Jaguar S Type


unfortunately when that code, and that gear box fault light comes on, its pretty much game over for the transmission. It only a matter of time before performance of the transmission gets worse and worse. BUT that transmission is VERY easy to replace, i would check out a few trustworthy independent shops to give you a better price! I am usually a die-hard dealership, having been working at this jaguar land rover dealership for the last 2 years, but you are pretty much for sure going to be a cheaper price on the labor and like i said it is a pretty easy task.

My only precaution MAKE SURE IF YOU GETTING A USED TRANSMISSION THAT YOU GET SOME TYPE OF WARRANTY ON IT. Too many times have I seen customers loose thousands of dollars paying someone to put a used engine or transmission and have it fail almost right away.
