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 tires don't help) . Best car I have ever owned. A really fun automobile to drive.
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.
this is a fine car. it is our 2nd jag and my wife feels like a million bucks in it. the only think i dont like is its not easy to change the oil. panels in the way and the like. buy them slightly used under warranty for about 22k. and you cant go wrong.
