When people hear the name Jaguar, they think of elegant styling, high performance and the heritage of being manufactured in Great Britain. Over the years Jaguar has had a number of owners, however, including Ford Motor Company. Faced with plummeting sales and financial problems, Ford sold Jaguar in 2008. Today, Jaguar is the luxury vehicle brand of Jaguar Land Rover, owned by the Indian company Tata Motors, headquartered in Coventry, England.
While Jaguars are currently engineered, manufactured, and assembled at a number of plants in England, reliability continues to be a concern. Given the heavy sticker price and brand identity, one would think that Jaguars meet the demands of consumers. Nonetheless, these vehicles are prone to an array of defects that can keep them out of service for extended period of time.

Numerous problems have been reported with Jaguars regarding the automatic transmission, brakes, engine cooling, fuel leaks, airbags, steering and suspension and the like. Over the years, several popular Jaguar models such as the Jaguar F-Type, Jaguar S-Type, Jaguar Super V8, Jaguar X-Type, Jaguar XF, Jaguar XJ and Jaguar XK have been subject to recalls and technical service bulletins.
- In February 2017, Jaguar Land Rover North America LLC announced a recall of certain 2017 Jaguar XF models due to a possible cracked left hand inner sill panel. In the event of an accident involving a left hand impact, the cracked sill panel could lead to underfloor fuel lines rupturing and leaking fuel which is a fire hazard.
- In October 2016, certain 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR vehicles were recalled because bolts connecting the rear lower control arms to the knuckle assembly may fail prematurely, causing the assembly to separate from the vehicle, leasing to a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash. Jaguar instructed dealers to replace the defective bolt.
- In August 2016, Jaguar recalled certain 2009-2011 Jaguar XFs and 2007-2011 Land Rover/Range Rovers for defective Takata airbags on the front passenger side. This widely reported problem with Takata airbags is the result of propellant that may have degraded which, if activated, could release metal shrapnel, causing serious injury or death.
