If you buy a Jaguar, make sure you have a second car. You will need it as this car will be in the shop more than it is on the road. It takes weeks to months to get parts in. The cost of maintenance and basic repairs is 3-4 times as much as it is on most other cars. It is a sharp car, just know what you are getting in to.

by from Sacramento County on July 16, 2017

Surprised how cheap you can pick one of these Jags up for now. Used to be 50 grand cars. Really nice car overall I think.

4 years ago I purchased a pre used Jaguar S-Type not knowing the vehicle history, 4 months later transmission, A/C compressor failed. Vehicle had no warranty the repairs were super expensive. Vehicle looks great and has a beautiful interior. Parts and maintenance is expensive. If you buy used make sure you buy a warranty for the vehicle.

Without a doubt the most satisfying car purchase of my life. Had no clue how scarce the VDP version was--only makes it that much sweeter. Am 60 yrs old, work an hour each week for each of those years, and this vehicle speaks to me on my trip home. Haven't spoken burled walnut for long, but I'm picking it up.

Dream Car

by from Rockwall, TX on December 11, 2011

We bought the 2005 Stype jag to replace a 2000 Stype Jag. These cars are so right for our driving requirements.

Jag STR is best in class by far

by from Richmond, VA on November 25, 2011

Totally a M and AMG killer. Instant acceleration reminds me of rocket thrust snapping the heads of passengers. On the highway, achieved 24 mpg under cruise control. Perfection.

Jaguar's reputation for poor reliability drives the prices down compared with cars of comparable original price, but this car has all the luxury features one could ask for, is a great handling car (I have the V8), and I have peace of mind with a 3 year extended warrenty.
