What do you guys think?
One concern of mine is breaking down in the middle of the night on my way home from work.

Jaguar has been at the bottom of most reliability lists for a long time. But, no worries, you have roadside assistance the first 4 years!

My only experience with Jag ownership was a 2000 Jaguar S-Type that my mother owned for 3 years when they first came out and I can say that she had zero problems with it. I'm a big fan of the current XF, XK, XJ and the Type F is looking great too.

I've owned 2 jags, both XJ's. 1993, had nothing but trouble with it, they finally figured out that it was the mother board, replaced it, everything was fine after that. They must have towed it 20 times in 3 years. My
experience with their road side assistance was real good, they were very prompt and careful.

The 1998, was a dream, no issues, I really enjoyed that car.

In 2004, I thought it was time for a new one as the extended warrenty was expiring, however, I just wasn't crazy about the new body styles, so, I bought something else instead.

I am about ready to buy a new car and I may go back to the Jag, I'm liking what I see.

Ummm, no. Not any more:

Jaguar has topped the rankings for customer satisfaction in the 2012 JD Power survey - the first time the British car maker has won the influential Vehicle Ownership Satisfaction Study.

Nearly 18,000 people were interviewed after an average of two years' car ownership, to find out how satisfied they were with their purchases.
Four key measures were analysed - vehicle appeal, quality and reliability ownership costs and dealer satisfaction.

By scoring top slot in the 2012 Vehicle Ownership Satisfaction Study, Jaguar has dethroned Lexus - after the Japanese brand sat for more than a decade at the top. This is a major result for the thriving brand.

Uhhh, that's "satisfaction" you are quoting. Here's JD Power's Dependability (reliability at 3-yr mark) rating:



Jaguar's a fine car ... as long as it's not the only car you have.

Fantastic car in concept so far; hopefully the execution delivers on the promise. I'd be perfectly content with the blown V6; the blown V8 just seems like overkill in this segment. Only thing I don't like is auto tranny only but that's not surprising from Jag.

Just curious. While the list does report that Jaguar is at the bottom of the list, how many issues do you think they have that will leave you stranded on the side of the road.

Time to move on from the old reliability stories I think.

I saw a picture of the new F Type and was underwhelmed.

It reminded me of a Maserati- no bad thing in itself- but lacking in original visual impact. I wondered why they'd built it given that they have the XK.
