I bought a 2000 S with 7000 miles last year. Immediately after the warranty ran out one of the window regulators broke down, but I was told at the dealership that they did not have a recall on the cars because of that, therefore they could not do anything. Would customer service honor those service actions even if I am not the original owner?
Also, my radio display is faulty. Every time I start the car it display a bunch of trash, and gets normalized after a while. Anybody knows if there is a in-dash cd changer from Jaguar?
#845 of 1064 Considering a purchase of a 2005 Jag S type 4.2 V8

I found a good deal and I am considering a purchase of a 2005 Jag S type 4.2 V8 used, with 21,000 miles. After reading all the info out here I am concerned about reliability. Should I be? or have they made improvements on the 2005 model?

The 2003 model was heavily revised.
The 2005 model has an aluminum hood, retuned front suspension, restyled exterior, and some other stuff.

I bought a used 2005 in March of this year. Love the car. I researched all of the jag forums on the web and I found tons of complaints about older jags. Very little after the 2003 redo. From my experience I would recommend that you but the car and enjoy.

#849 of 1064 Jaguar S-Type Day Time Running Lights

Can my US Spec. 2001 S-Type be converted to day time running lights?
I believe they were mandatory for Jaguars sold in Canada. Could it be the car is wired for this feature but not installed in the US.
#850 of 1064 Just Bought It, Problematic Already.
Oct 17, 2005 (7:04 am)
This weekend I just purchased a 2000 S-Type 3.0 for $15,000.00. When I test drove the car it seemed fine. Now that i brought the vehicle home, the problems have begun. First thing I noticed the drivers side rear window,it is either off the track or needs a new regulator (looking into that today), the odometer is not working(maybe dealer disconnected this) probably will void my warranty without it (5 year engine and transmission) Went to pick up the car and they told me the windshield wiper motor was dead (the only thing they fixed for me)(how is this motor bad in a 5 year old car?) Next my engine light is on, was told its a oxygen or fule tempertaure sensor (maybe this has something to due with the idle not being stable at all times) And most importantly being that winter is here, my heat does not work, but the ac does. Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated, any good jauar mechanics in the bronx area would also be appreciated. I think im gonna bring the car to the dealeer and do a full diagnostics test. Should I have to repair all this or is my dealer part responsible. I dont want to much time to pass if he is.. Any laws to prtoct consumers from this? He told me that his guarentee is 30 days on tranny and engine, but he aslo told me everyhing was fine on the car. OOO my mirros dont work either, maybe its just a fuse hopefully. Love the car, just wanna fix it and hope that there arent a lot of problems around the corner...

#853 of 1064 Lower Ball Joints
Dec 13, 2005 (9:02 pm)
I have a 2000 Jag S Type with 84k miles on the odo, recently I've been having problems with both front lower ball joints. I have the 100k extendeded warranty and the dealer claims that the joints would not be covered due to wear and tear. According to the warraty it should, but they refused to fixed it at no charge. Do any of you know of Jaguars Customer Service/Consumers Affairs phone number. I would like to verify what the dealer told me. Apart from the above problem, I have enjoyed my Jag trouble free.
