Jaguar cars are beautiful, but I would not even own a new one. They just have too many issues and those issues when out of warranty cost plenty. I would avoid any German or English used cars unless you have extra money or an extended warranty. Several years ago a Wichita, Ks. car dealership (Jaguar, Mercedes, Acura, Porsche) owner told me Jaguars sometimes are like a garden and need to be cultivated. They have lots of little issues. He also steered me away from Mercedes. We leased an Acura and my wife loved it.


I have a 2003 Jaguar X-Type no issues or problems. In my opinion, if you are considering a Jaguar, you need to research the model of interest, know what to inspect, set a budget (price of vehicle, price of mechanical work, and other costs). Then, if you do purchase one, join your local Jaguar Club. They are a wealth of information for mechanics, events, support, etc. Good luck!
