Love the outside, pity about the
workmanship. Yes the interior doesn't
hold much room, but I didn't buy it for
that. Unfortunately just after the
warantee finished both front windows
fell off their levers costing and arm
and a leg to fix. The moulding on the
front of the car also came away.
It looks great and people turn and
Make thw indows work, get rid of
plastic bumpers, and cheap fixtures
inside. It's either a luxury car or
it's not. Nice face shame about the
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.
Pretty car, atrocious build quality, not so much assembly, but the cheapest garbage plastic everywhere. Inside trim pieces break, but worse, crappy plastic in critical components, including transmission shift gate and window lifts necessitating unreasonably expensive repairs to replace cheap broken parts. Brakes mushy with expensive pads and rotors, front suspension is a disaster. Tie rod ends, hubs, ball joints all made out of crap and need replacement. So if you're lucky, you won't need to do what everybody else has had to: replace the transmission, front end, a/c and heat components, engine coils, window regulators, etc. AND DON'T SLAM THE DOORS. Your window regulators will break.
Pretty to look at.
Stop making this car (oh, I guess somebody was listening).
I purchased this 2000 S type 3.0 several years ago with less than 40K miles on it. It's an absolutely beautiful car and I still get compliments from strangers. IF they only knew what sort of NIGHTMARE this car is mechanically. From cheap front headlights, to constant leaks, continued engine trouble, poor brakes and constant repair bills. I'm looking to dump this car as soon as it makes sense monetarily. DO NOT buy a 2000 Jag S Type from any dealer. At first, you'll love you car ... but eventually you'll regret the day you drove it off the lot.
Comfortable seats, beautiful dash, center arm rest, multi-CD changer in glove box, comfortable ride, handles well on corners, eye catching design.
Extremely poor mechanical quality, poor quality seals and hoses from factory, faulty headlight adjustments, electrical issues abound.
I LOVE the design of this car and I
LOVE to drive it...when it is not in
for repair...I drive a rental more than
my own car because it is always in the
shop...for weeks at a time. the dealer
ship couldn't figure out why it would
always miss between 40-60 mph so they
charged me over and over to "fix"
different things...finaly the check
engine light gave them a code which
indicated the coils of which there are
12 they have been failing one at a time
and each time I am back, last time I
didn't get 10 miles from the shop. I
am now driving another rental!!!!!!
The design in and out, except for the
rear of the car.
