2006 Jaguar S-Type Problems

Transmission Failure Common

Premature automatic transmission failure is common. Diagnoses of the fault will be necessary to determine if repair or replacement is the proper repair.

Improved Coolant Hoses Available to Withstand Cooling System Pressure

Improved coolant hoses that are able to withstand cooling system pressure are available (Jaguar Service Bulletin S518). These improved hoses help avoid engine overheating by preventing the coolant hose from inadvertently detaching from the engine.

Persistent Coolant Loss Due to Small Leak at Coolant Reservoir

The plastic coolant reservoir is prone to leak. The reservoir can mysteriously lose coolant or coolant may pool under the engine compartment. If this occurs, the coolant reservoir should be inspected for cracks. If leaks are neglected, the reservoir may fail and cause the engine to overheat.

2006 Jaguar S-Type Reviews

Bought the 2006 Jaguar S-Type in August 2010 at 42,000 miles. It has zip and street appeal. People are always coming up to me saying, "I love your car." I Love it! I recently replaced the wiper blades ($69/dealer) and replaced left rear brake lamp ($9/dealer). All in all I love this car. Great response and road handling. Though it is not good in the snow. (rear wheel drive and low profile tire...
Going on 8 months with my 2006 S Type. There was an initial problem with the fuel pressure regulator that led to replacing the catalytic converter, but it was all warranty work. My dealer suggested a transmission flush at 30K. I later found out that these are sealed units and that simply isn't procedure unless there is a leak or a shifting problem. Love the car.
Not only expensive to service, but dealer keeps suggesting unneeded items, such as a transmission flush at 3,543 miles at a cost of arounf $500.
