WORST vehicle for QUALITY.
By Sam on 07/28/06 20:10 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan

Review

Expensive repair required every 90 days. Every thing is repaired from trans/engine to things you can not expect. It is always a surprise. But best part is you will replace lot of window regulators. Recommend to STOP using window.

These cars are junk and Ford knows it!

2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan

Review

The car falls apart a little more every day. Service actions overseas were prompt but not in USA. Motor problems at 50K, J-gate shifter with plasic piece that fails when stuck in Park, windows that will fail and fall inside the doors, over priced dealer repairs, service reps that deny what is all over the net and reported to NHTSA and Jag international that does not care at all!

From BMW M3 to Jag Type S?
By Ernie Bello on 01/28/06 17:09 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2000 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 4dr Sedan

Review

Went from a 97 BMW M3 which was a wonderfully reliable, striking, and fun to drive vehicle because my wife was tired of shifting in heavy traffic, etc. Bought the jag from one of my customers- it has been a wonderful vehicle! No headaches, suffering, or disasters! Had a couple of small problems, quickly and easily solved. Thje car is certainly more sedate and refined than the M3, while the M3 is certainly the sportier of the two. The Jaguar has more options, more toys, etc. While the M3 is the better "race car" the Jaguar is certainly the choice for long, fast & relaxed cruising; the V8 engine has ample power for spirited driving in traffic. Good mileage, too: 27mpg highway.

Didn't see this one coming
By Dawn on 12/01/05 22:12 PM (PST)

2000 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 4dr Sedan

Review

What can I say; buy the car on a Monday and have over $3,000 in repairs before the weekend. The bleeding doesn't stop there. Make the monthly payment and triple that for repairs. Has been that way for over a year now. Been paying $9 per lug nut, $1000 for a starter w/o installation, just lose the key, or have the hood ornament taken. The leather fades in color, the sun roof sticks, and the car only starts when it feels like it. Doesn't drive well at all in any amount of snow. It stays at home, it won't move! My dream is my worst nightmare. Anyone can afford to buy a Jag, but not many can afford to keep one. The parts are dealer only, no aftermarket, and are about 400% more. Sad!

2000 S-Type

Review

I purchased this 2000 S-Type from a private owner just last month. It is white, with chrome rims and 45 series tires, with an after market mesh grill. This car gets so many compliments. Mechanically the car is excellent, the ride is great, the style is one of a kind.

Total reliability for 5 years. Poor gas mileage (13 mpg) in town, driving up and down hilly streets, but 28 mpg on the highway.

Nothing to fear from this Jag
By AtlantaJag on 08/08/05 16:23 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan

Review

As a former Lexus owner, when I bought this Jag, I was prepared for the worst, mechanically. After over three years - to my absolute pleasure - this has been and remains a phenomenal vehicle - mechanically and visually. I would purchase another without hesitation when that time comes. During my ownership, I've only had one issue. A rear window belt snapped and had to be replaced. Easily done at the dealership...and not too obnoxiously priced. So far, the quality is right on par with the Lexus...but with much better performance and more style.

Terrible Reliability
By Robert Danaian on 08/04/05 14:18 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan

Review

This is the worst luxury (?) car I have ever had. Never know what is going to fail next. How can Jaguar get away with such an awful car? I have spent thousands repairing this car. Do yourself a favor and buy something else. Anything else.

A Beautiful Find
By FreeMan on 06/11/05 02:14 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2000 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 4dr Sedan

Review

This is perhaps the best looking sedan ever made. The four round headlights and complimenting hood, surrounding a classic "tennis racket" shaped grille are distinct and perfect. The stance of the car makes it look ready to pounce. Pounce it does, with the powerful, smooth and modern 8. Jag got all the compromises right. Ride quality and handling are both superb without a bias toward one at expense of the other. The handling will greatly satisfy but the ride pampers, not punish. The power of the engine is always more than adequate, without need for high reving hysteria. Best, the Jag is as sexy as a sports coupe but works very well as a family sedan. Classic look and quality will age well.

Great car to drive. Handles well except on snowy roads. Fuel mileage not great. Inside configuration is well designed. Excellent pick-up.
