Had the car for a couple of days after it was at the dealer and less than 30 miles when the car engine seized and is now worthless. Jaguar is junk. They dont have a temperature gauge in them. They feel their engineering is so great it knows when the car is starting to heat up and will shut it down- RIGHT! Needs coolant light went on and seized before we could get it off the highway. NEVER buy one of these pieces of crap. There executives are a bunch of liars. Their mission statement says "good enough, just isn't good enough" Try to get them to be responsible for any of their failures and you will see what a completely fraudulent statement that is. Buy a jaguar and you are completely at risk of owing money on a car that you will never be able to drive again. That's my exact experience. I've heard people say never buy Jaguar. If you want to find out for yourself, spend $90K on one of their vehicles and see if it can last. I had a 100 warranty on it and it didn't last 90K. Unfortunately the years were expired 5 months before the complete failure of this car. The USA should not allow such fraudsters to import their scrapheaps into this country. Bad bushings. Apparently under engineered for the weight of the car. read the other entry of mine. $90K car cant outlast a Geo. DONT BUY JAGUAR
