Anyone have any experience with a s type r. I have to chance to pick up one. I have been reading on them the past few days and it seems they have a coolant line that runs under the supercharger that is a huge problem when it goes bad. Also a weird shifting in the zf from 1 to 2 or vice versa.

I want to go check it out Saturday let me know if you know anything.
I'd start researching on jaguarforums.com. This thread popped up in a quick search.


From what I've seen you should have nothing to worry about in terms of kids abusing these cars like the LS. One, they can't afford them, two they probably can't afford the insurance despite being 5+ years old now.

Chassis issues would be similar to the LS. Motor issues would be similar except for anything s/c related or its cooling related. Same goes for trans.

Good luck with your search.

*Not facts but my thinking about it anyway.
Search "best year for jaguar s type" - most say 2003-05 - many give a slight edge to 2005
