Jaguar is not known for building quality. Even Consumer Reports with the limited data it has gives it among the worst rated brands. BMW, Audi, you name it, ranks higher even though those are not necessarily reliable. It is just they are better than Jaguar.

Personally, I would steer clear but maybe someone, somewhere, can say something good about it. I cannot in all honesty. Best of luck.

Don't buy a Jaguar if you are looking for reliability. Any other brand should be more reliable. My parents used to have Jags and I had one. I had a 2000 3.0 S-Type and something would break on it every few months costing $500 for each trip. Mostly water pumps and the windows would fall into the doors or get stuck. Mine got to 150,000 miles across 4 years because my commute was longer. My dad's 2003 S-Type got to 140,000 miles across 11 years and had a few major problems ending with a transmission failure. My mom's 2002 XJ8 was the least reliable of them all, but was a true Jag and not a Lincoln LS rebadge. That car had a lot of major problems also ending its life in the failure of the transmission.

Of course this is not something to keep in mind since I'm only one person that used to have an old Jag. You should research Jaguar as a brand and see that they are garbage quality.

All of your priorities would be fullfilled in a Genesis or Lexus. They all have smooth rides and good reliability.
