Warranty

Jaguar offers a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty.

It's worth noting that Jaguar's reputation for quality has suffered over the years. "Consumer Reports magazine, basing its scores on reader surveys, shows Jag as a brand much improved but still way down at 31 out of 36 U.S.-market brands, mainly because of problems with the S-Type sedan," explains USA Today. However, the review also points out that Jaguar has improved enough for buyers to consider it "in the hunt rather than an example of awfulness, as some still believe."
