Most reliable car I've ever owned

This is, without a doubt, the most reliable car I've ever owned. I purchased my '01 3.0 in February of 2007 with 31,000 miles. Today I have just over 85,000 miles, and the only money I've spent on repairs has been on normal wear and tear items. The interior of my car is near pristine. The exterior has light scratches here and there, but overall is in excellent condition. After Ford bought Jaguar in the 90s and pumped $1 billion into the company to produce a better product, the S-Type was born. I have been one of the lucky ones to experience owning one of these great cars. My next vehicle will be a newer S-Type :)

2001 Jaguar S Type 4.0 is BIG BANG for the buck!

This is real value for your money. Jaguar had been owned by Ford for nearly 13 years when this car was produced. It does have competitive reliability. The performance of the 4.0 V8 is a very good choice. It is far better than the V6 and in my view makes a great daily driver with a wide power band, less expensive to maintain as compared to the "R" version that is supercharged from normal tire replacement to scheduled visits at your local dealer. These S-Type Jags have a great retro look, excellent performace and handling. Interior room and comfort is good.

Just Bought a 2001 Jaguar

Ever since high school I wanted a Jaguar Mark II 3.8 Sedan. When Ford came out with th S-Type It was, in my mind, a modern version of the Mark II. The Jaguar is distinctly British styling and luxury. After several months and a consistent search on many websites, and kissing a number of frogs I found a 2001 in Pennsyvaina with only 55K miles and in almost showroom condition. As soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be mine. This is an automobile that i will savor. I watch Wayne Carini on Chasing Classic Cars and absolutely know how he feels when he talks about cars. I have a private plane and I flew up to Pa. to see the car at Queen City Airport in Allentown Pa. My buddy flew me up in his plane on the second trip and I drove it back to Maryland. Now part of the history of this great Automobile.

First Jaguar and I'm hooked

Great performance from the 3.0 V6. The fuel pump failed for the previous owner, but no problems since. No other major issues. Terrific style and comfort. Easy and comfortable to drive in any situation...

Unfortunately Just Another Jag

I thought this one would be better than the previous Jags I owned, but unfortunately this is just another Jag. I bought it used, 16,000 miles, and within 3 months the window motor went out and the center console broke. Then at 45,000 miles a "transmission fault" appeared. I have been limping around ever since. (Don't have the 5K for a replacement tranny.) I thought that with the acquisition by Ford, Jag would be better. Heck, it is pretty much a Taurus anyway. Not so. Still the same piece of junk that Jag has always produced. They look good, my wife loves it, but is is garbage. Interior is all plastic, and piece by piece it is starting to fall apart or stop working. Stay away from this brand.
