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

Ignition coil failure may cause the engine to run poorly. The fault can be intermittent and may or may not illuminate the Check Engine Light.

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.

The fuel delivery module (FDM), jet pump module (JPM), and cluster valve (CV) seals on the fuel tank may not be seated properly, and may allow fuel leakage if the fuel level is above the affected seals. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank to see if the revised seals can be used for the repair. If they cannot, the fuel tank assembly will be replaced. The recall began January 29, 2007. The Jaguar recall number R176.

The fuel tank released on some vehicles was a pre-production prototype and had to be replaced prior to vehicle sale. Units were repaired at the dealerships prior to sale. The Jaguar recall number is R177. This recall began on December 13, 2006.

Have about 78,000 miles on mine (3rd S-Type I have owned) and love it. Did have one significant ignition problem, but it was covered by the warranty. Problem caused by a faulty fuel float. Only other problem I have had, and I am working on it now, is that the coolant reservoir was replaced and there is a 'small' leak I discovered this morning on the upper hose at the clamp level. While I ha...

I've owned this car for the last few years (Bought used, was a bank-repo) and so far I really can't complain about it too much. The engine has been flawless, no leaks of oil or coolant. The transmission has never produced a leak of any type either. The fit and finish of the exterior is wonderful. NOTHING rattles or is showing any signs of wear. The interior is also great, still tight after 9 ye...

This is the best car I ever owned and I intend to keep it as long as I can. I have no major expenses just maintenance upkeep, a very reliable car for either long or short distance.
