I purchased a 2000 S Type Jaguar and before the warranty had expired the window regulators,starting with my driver side window,started going out. I have since had to replace each regulator cable and am now half way round again. The drivers side cable goes out most often and this is mainly due to its more frequent use. On average my cables have lasted about 2 years. I have had them replaced by Jaguar and other licensed mechanics. P.S. I'm thinking about learning to replace them myself but a recall is only fair, and long past due.

I only drive this car as you can tell by the mileage. I have replaced all the window regulators and cables to the tune of 500.00 for each window. the most recent was less than a year ago. Guess what? one of the rear windows has now failed again! Jaguar is garbage!

This is the third time I have replaces the motor & regulators,in my front windows,it is pretty bad Jaguar can`t make a window that lasts more than 2 yrs. I will never own another Jaguar,quality is just not here. I have the S-type looks good. but what a headache!! I think I have the 1 million dollar car after all the other repairs I have paid for. The dealers here in Florida are nothing but rip offs,big time!! No wonder the dealers offer low financing,only way can sell Jags!!!
I replaced the rear window regulators in both rear windows at the same time, around 35,000 miles. Some time later I replaced the passenger side regulator, ($900.00 bucks a pop). These aren't cheap, ($2,700).
