2003 Jaguar S-Type Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 112006

S-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,400 miles


I purchased a S-type Jaguar 2003 June 11, 2002 from park place Jaguar houston, Texas, I took the car in before 5,000 mile check up and complained about the brakes, a few months later took the car in for 5,000 mile check up complained about the brakes was told that I need a master cylinder, car was left with the dealership for a week. Months later the brake light came on and would not go off. Jaguar from national sent a wrecker to pick up the car and delivered it to park place Jaguar for repair. The car was in the shop for a week again. Had a tire to wear out due to faulty brakes, still nothing was done regarding the breaks, I was under the impression that the brakes had been fixed until January 11,2006 when I took the car in for it's 30,000 miles check up at 29,415 and was informed by zack adams the service advisor that I needed new brakes and it would be $585.36 I thank god that zag finally saw the problem needed fixing. For the repair, I have receipts upon your request for the many of times the brakes were addressed for the warranty was over, it is evidenced that I was sold a car with faulty brakes. And Jaguar failed to provided me with the safety of my car for 2 1/2 years. If I had been a driver that rode the brakes constantly on the highway, I would be a fatality person. Jaguar was negligent in repairing my car safely and refuses to own up to their failure. Also the poorly quality of tires that I also reported to the service department and was not helped. I purchased new tires from discount services for $539.09. The car was not safe and a traffic hazard, I contacted them several times regarding issue with car. It should not been 2 1/2 years to ge breaks repair when I started complaining 2 months after the purchased of the car.
