Customer Question

Hi, I'm thinking about buying a 2003-2005 jaguar s type but I'm a bit hesitant. I've read that they have a lot of transmission issues and that basically they're not so reliable. What's your opinion?

Hello and welcome to
Overall the S type is a fairly reliable vehicle but honestly I would recommend you try and find a 2006-2008 as they have fewer problems. The 2003-2005 have more electrical and transmission problems then the later years.

Ok, is it the same case with the x type?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Yes. I would recommend a 2005-008 X type. The first few years had a lot of issues. Of course this will also depend on how it has been serviced and maintained.
