Cheap broken plastic bits everywhere
By Aardvark on

Vehicle

2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Pretty to look at.

Suggested Improvements

Stop making this car (oh, I guess somebody was listening).

I had all the same issues with my 2000 S-Type. I wonder if the XF is like this as well. I guess time will tell. I'm not getting another Jaguar junk. They fooled me once already.
