2004 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Superb car. Bought it in Nov 08 with 83K miles. It still had 1 yr/17K miles left on original factory extended warranty and I only paid $8,500 for the car at the dealer. Fantastic ride and quality. I've had $4,000+ of warranty work already to fix all problems (trans/motor/radiator leaks, and rear door lock, and transmission computer software reload). Highly recommend getting at least 6 months of warranty coverage to initially fix problems. Antifreeze is $17 per liter (Jag fluid only). New front brake pads and rotors will cost $700, so this car is not for the timid budget. Overall reliability has been very good though and a GREAT car overall. No regrets!

Best Features

Style, quality, ride. 10 airbags everywhere! Very comfortable seats for a medium size person. 3.0L engine has plenty of power. Sport button for transmission allows rapid shifting in traffic, very nice feature. No timing belt/chain to replace ever and no transmission service ever required.

Worst Features

Slight steering wheel vibration when turning at very slow speed. Soft brake rotors don't allow turning once warped. Aftermarket brake rotors/pads not recommended. A/C temp control valve in dashboard makes shifting noises constantly in auto temp mode. Very expensive to replace ($600).
