problem #1

Feb 082006

X-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles
Experienced two major failures. The initial failure involved the shearing off of one of the left suspension components. Resulted in steering failure. Fortunately, I was only going 20 mph and was able to stop before further damage incurred. $4500 in repairs to front end/suspension--covered by local dealer/Jaguar. The second failure involved transmission failure at speeds of 40 - 70 mph. Happily, when taken to the dealership, it left them stranded on the street. This resulted in the recommendation of a new transmission at $6500 on a component not due to require service for another 30,000 miles. (car had 69,000 miles.)
