2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan


After reading the other reviews in here (very few of which were positive) I can concur with almost everything. This car, though gorgeous, is a mechanical nightmare. I bought mine used, it's almost paid off, and I will get rid of it asap. If you ever by an s- type 3.0, you'd better have a great warranty to fix the common issues seen on almost all s types eventually: (coils fail, o2 sensors fail, coolant seals fail, headlights fail, headliner falls, oil leaks, transmission problems, weak brakes, plastic parts eventually fail, rear window tracks fail.) if you do your research (like I should have) you'll see negative comments all over the web about this model car. Buy it if you can afford many repairs!

Best Features

Comfortable ride, 3.0 has strong acceleration (when working), nice styling, good interior room, good trunk space, comfortable seats, strong air conditioner.

Worst Features

The only improvement would be that this car had been built in a quality manner to begin with. It did not. Although Jaguar is now owned by an Indian company, Ford owned Jag when this car was build. The lack of quality is equivalent to the poor quality of Fords cars in that decade.
