Common Jaguar questions resolved on JustAnswer


Some common S-Type Jaguar complaints:


  • Transmission failure
  • Ignition coil misfiring (which usually makes the Check Engine light come on)
  • Coolant loss and overheating
  • Fuel system failure
  • Gear not shifting from park
  • Premature brake and rotor failure

Some common X-type Jaguar complaints:


  • Transmission failure
  • Leaking engine oil pan gasket
  • Coolant loss and overheating
  • Rattling defroster vents
  • Rear calipers freezing up
  • Wheel sensors becoming rusted
  • Speakers blowing out

Labor for specialty Jaguar complaint repairs cost between $120 and $180 per hour, depending on geographic location and the individual dealership. However, owners can and often do make their own repairs with guidance from the verified Jaguar Experts on JustAnswer, who are available 24/7. Costs for this service are well under $100, usually less than $50.


It can also be helpful to get a second opinion if you’ve been to the shop for an estimate, or to have a diagnosis from one of our Experts before you go to the shop. The better you can describe your problem, the faster a mechanic can identify the problem, and the less it may cost you.


It’s also a good idea to consult a JustAnswer expert if you’ve just bought your first Jaguar to get information on proper maintenance. This preventive action can save you thousands of dollars going forward.


When you consult a JustAnswer Expert about your Jaguar complaint, be sure to have your model, year and mileage information on hand. The Experts will also generally ask you what you’ve tried so far.
