#1000 of 1065 DVD AND GPS S-TYPE
Feb 20, 2009 (4:28 pm)
I have the Jaguar S-Type 2001 that comes with CD and burrow ribbon.
I asked representative of the Jaguar of I can change the CD and
burrow ribbons of the panel for a DVD with GPS navigation.
The representative of the jaguar told me that can make that
and that compatible DVD is ALPINE IVA W5005 with GPS.
I still didn't decide on isso,porque have doubts if she won't bring
problems for my Jaguar.
Did anybody already make that change in the panel of S-Type?

never had one and need info. this car was a fleet car. low mileage, 15 k, absolutely beautiful but never owned an import. Is maintainence such as oil change expensive compared to american made? Any pros and or cons from current past jag owners appreciated.

All parts are more expensive, but a tip. Most can be replaced by Lincoln parts as Jag was owned by Ford but if it is a 2005 that may no longer be the case. I have gotten 4 good years out of mine so far but the tranny started going bad. Don't believe their "sealed tranny" stories, there is a fluid check knob hidden in back and if you don't check it and it gets low it will hurt the tranny (as it did mine).

I had a front and rear clunk sound. I replaced the rear suspension damper and the front sway bar frame mount bushings. The car is rock solid now!

This is probably too little too late but I experienced the same thing with my 2001 S-Type. Had pads replaced and rotors turned but within 2 days the squeal was back. Took it back to my mechanic, he made a call to Jaguar and the reason was the "high speed rotors" were most likely warped. Turns out rotors were supposed to be replaced, not turned(whatever that means) anyway, replaced with "normal" rotors for much less money and problem solved. No noise ever again..except the crunch when I was rear ended by a 1993 Full Size Ford Explorer.. of course the driver had no insurance. thats how I learned all about the computer modules located in the floor of the trunk..and totaled my Jag.

Currently in talks with dealer for a Jaguar Certified Select 2005 S-Type R to replace my totaled 2001 S-Type. I've read all the post about transmission problems but I had my S-Type for 4 years and only problem I had was a coil in the #6 injector($500.00) and had work done on the AC..that was all...Prior to the Jag, I had a Taurus SHO and probably put $11,000.00 in the engine in a 5 year period. I'm going with the Jaguar.

Hi: I'm considering first Jaguar purchase ... thinking S type. Have seen comments and wonder where in the series the new 'norwegian' transmission came in. Is there a code on the cars to show which trans they have?
What other things, aside from long, strong warranty should I look for?

Ken, I purchased a used 2001 in 2005 with 49k miles. Still have it, tranny going out, with close to 110k. The Ford tranny, which mine has, goes about 100, based on what the dealers said. Other than the hvac going out, which I now question, based on the mechanic involved, no real maintenance issues. The car is great to drive and good for the ego, if you like comments about your car :>. Good shopping to you.

Easy way to tell what trannys in the car - the ZF is a 6 speed, the Ford box is 5. I picked up a CPO 2006 S-Type VDP model earlier this year from the local Jag Dealer. I suggest you look for a CPO car with the 300 HP 4.2 V8 in it. Fuel economy is virtually the same as the 3.0. This S-Type is my third Jag, I owned 2 X Types before it.
