“Better than Caviar and Champagne !”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by 210Tucker (1 review written)

I have had a BMW and a Mercedes, they are not in the same class. I am on my second S-Type (Petrol) now gradually getting younger and will continue to do so. Not for faint hearted with regard to costs, but one would not eat at a greasy spoon if one wanted pride and satisfaction, in comfort!… Read Full Review

“Exhilarating luxury - I love this car”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by PhilipWatkins (1 review written)

I have just sold my 2011 Mercedes C200, which I had owned since new for nearly 2 years, and purchased this late 2007 3.0 auto S-Type with 57,000kms on the clock. OMG! I simply love the Jag. I have never owned one before, nor has anyone in my family. I guess its' reputation had always put me off - but after 6 months I am still excited about going out in it. No real problems so far. I had put new Michelin tyres on it, and they really ride and grip well. The engine is sublime, the gearbox a dream… Read Full Review

“MY GORGOUS BLACK JAGUAR”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Brightonman (2 reviews written)

I usually buy Porches but the last two cars were Range Rovers as both my parent were disabled. This has changed two years ago and I was about to buy either a BMW or Mercedes to use for a year. As I don't have a garage I didn't want to spend alot of money at the time. One day I saw this black Jaguar 2006 S-type and it had loads of extras added to it, sitting in the car showroom, naturally I had to take a closer look at it. I fell in love with it, it drives beautifully, what a lovely engine, it… Read Full Review

“Dont Do it”

Written on: 24/09/2013 by ForgivemeifItellthetruth (1 review written)

If you are ever tempted to buy a Jaguar SType DONT. It was (I finally sold it ) the most unreliable and costly vehicle I have ever had the misfortune to own, Mass airflow sensor, Auto gearbox, Head Gasket, wheel bearings, could never park it on a slope the right hand bank of pots would fill with water and the car would miss fire just a complete nightmare. Fuel consumption was appalling 23mpg was good. I do appreciate that a Jaguar will be a costly car to run but this is a poorly built ill… Read Full Review

“1999 3.0 LITRE JAGUAR STYPE, 89,000km.”

Written on: 28/03/2013 by NZJaguarMan (1 review written)

I have had my mistral metallic blue 3.0 JAGUAR for some 5 years now since February 2008.It is my 5th Jaguar since owning my first one being a 1958 2.4 litre special equipment MK1 way back in 1975. The car is in some ways better refined than all the old jags,but the interior facia has a little too much plastic for my liking.Mine has cloth material seats and although perhaps not as classy looking as leather seats they are far more softer and comfortable,and don't get boiling hot on sunny… Read Full Review

3L S Type Jaguar - Dream to drive... an experience every time - BUT you need to know reliability is not great - purchased with 80,000k on the clock - so far little problems of no consequence - drivers seat stopped rising and lowering - jammed mechanicals, Air Con Stopped - re-gassed (yet to find out what's really happened there, Now - yesterday - "Restricted Power" is the dashboard's statement and off to the garage - no majors - but compared to years of ownership of bland Toyota's that just… Read Full Review

quite correct if you buy an old Jaguar you must know you will have problems. But when it is running well,well,,, thats another story. It is worth all the trouble it puts upon one. Just to feel like a lord for a few hours with that soft silky drive it dose ones heart good. everyone should try one at least one time. to understand. belfast...

Written on: 30/12/2010

I live in Connecticut and would not recommend a Jauguar to my worst enemy. It has 54,000 miles on it and I have spent over $5,000 in repairs. I am planning a lawsuit against Jauguar for breach of implied warranty for fitness for a particular purpose and an implied warranty of merchantability.

This car is a nightmare.

“Header tank, suspension upright, roll bar bushes,...”

Written on: 25/08/2010

Header tank, suspension upright, roll bar bushes, sticking door handle and now the gearbox warning light has come on. All this in just 4 months of ownership. The last owner also did a whole nine yards of repairs and fixing faults. Yes at three grand its a bit of flash for not much cash but I can do without the pain this causes. Back into a nearly new ford focus, number 4 for me, yes its one of the herd but at least I'm not constantly looking up to the mechcanical gods before every journey… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/08/2010

Extremely unreliable and would never buy another Jag as a result. At 60000 miles the gearbox needs a 2000 pound repair. Prior to that the throttle body (1000 pounds) has failed twice. Two brakefluid leaks, windscreen wiper failure while on motorway in rain, engine inlet pipe failure, cracked expansion tank twice, replacement of front shock absorbers twice, aircon failure, seatbelt warning light failure, exhaust pipe bracket sheared, central locking failure. Enough said… Read Full Review

I am amazed at how many folks have bought a jag S type only to find that it is biggest load of cxxx on the road. I have never owned a more unreliable car. Roll bar, bearings, ball joints, window mechanisms, ecu's wiring looms and now the dammed gearbox has gone.

well done jaguar, you have just ensured I will never buy another jag… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2010 by Williamszone (1 review written)

I bought my car 2 years ago with 99,000 miles on the clock, it was an ex-lease car with full service history. Since having it, i have had no problems with it whatsoever. It now has 112,000 miles on the clock and just passed its second MOT. I needed two new tyres which I had done teh day before teh MOT was done and it passed, no problems or yellow note to indicate possible things that need looking at. The S Type is a smart car and I would tell anyone to get one. I love Jaguars and my next car… Read Full Review

Shundy01's Response to Williamszone's Review

Written on: 15/01/2013

Oh where do I begin?? My car has had both window regulators to go out. My heater went out. My fuel pump went out. My transmission is slipping. There are constant misfires. My windshield wipers recently stopped. I was just told about something that I cannot even pronounce that I must replace. The rubber around my trunk has to be replaced because apparently water has been getting in my trunk from the rain. For those who have had no problems, I can promise you it is a matter of time!! I was once YOU.

Written on: 19/01/2010

I bought my S Type 3.0SE in September 2006. The car had just under 90,000 miles on the clock (Now 102,000), one owner and full Jag service history.

Aside from a wheel bearing and full set of discs just routine servicing required.

Plus points, purchase price £6500 in 2006 cost new nearly £30,000 in 2001. All the options were fitted when new so Sat Nav, Memory Seats, Leather. Goes like stonk when you prod it, on a run it gets 30mpg. I know its personal taste but I love the shape, works for… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2009

We have thoroughly enjoyed owning our 3.0SE, which we used to replace an Audi A6. It is thoroughly relaxing to drive, but capable of being quick enough if you want it to be. I have had to do nothing more than regular servicing in 18000 miles, and it now have 71000 on it, and feels as tight as new. wear on rear tyres are is a bit heavy if you have a slightly heavy right foot, but yu'd expect that. It may not have the flashy appeal of a 5 Series BMW or E Class Mercedes, but then again, I… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2009 by vellas (1 review written)

I have had my Jaguar S Type 3.0 for three years and I wish I had never laid eyes on it ! Yes, when it works, it's a dream to drive, comfortable but I could never say reliable! I wonder, everytime I go out to it, what will be wrong today? So far it has probably cost around £3,000 in repairs and the final straw now is that three of it's windows have failed within a short space of time. It appears that this is a general problem with the S-Type and not a mere coincidence so now I have written to… Read Full Review

Had my Jaguar S Type for 18 months, engine check light comes on at random, had it knocked out twice at 50 quid a go both times cruise control which it hasn't even got. Now I ignore it, wipers seized up sprayed copious amounts of wd 40 down side of splined arms that come out the bulkhead and then dragging the wipers across the screen by hand. Full service at my local garage 150 quid excluding plugs got to go back in for them cos the inlet manifold has 2 come off… Read Full Review
