Looks amazing, quality is the worst of all-time

2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan


I always loved the looks of Jaguars.
I always wanted one. I bought a 2000 S-Type with 48k miles on it. Thought, I can't go wrong! From day 1, every, oh, I'd say 30-45 days, the check engine light comes on. Yes, needs a repair, whether it be minor or major about once a month, on average. Ignition Coils, 4 catalytic converters, oxygen sensor, the Heat completely stopped working twice, Gearbox went, had a bizarre problem with my rear brakes, CD changer shorted out, cigarette lighter blows fuses once a month, rear windows don't go down, one back door doesn't shut all the way... I could literally go on and on.
This car is the biggest piece of crap imaginable.

Looks amazing. One of the nicest looking cars on the road. Looks like a $100,000 car. It drives very nice when everything is working, but that's rare.

It's true. That's what drew me to the car was the look. Now i see why people that owned them don't have them anymore. You don't see too many on the road anymore. Junk...
