Jaguar is a British car company with a reputation for making beautiful cars with marginal reliability. The Jaguar E-Type of the 1960s is often thought of as one of the best looking cars ever made. In the 1980s, Jaguar was taken public and by the 1990s, the Company was purchased by Ford (along with Aston Martin, Land Rover and Volvo) to assemble its Premier Automotive Group division.
The Jaguars of the 1980s and 1990s often had horrendous electrical problems and expensive prices. Once integrated under Ford, reliability improved somewhat as the Company benefited from more resources. The S-Type and X-Type Jaguars of the 2000s, were based off of Ford platforms whereas the larger Jaguar XJ was produced on its own platform. In 2007, the new Jaguar XF debuted with a radically new design direction and was well-received by consumers and competed with the BMW 5-series.
Also in 2007, Ford sold the brands that made up the Premier Group; Tata, an Indian manufacturing conglomerate, purchased Jaguar. Again benefitting from deeper pockets from a large parent Company, Jaguar has launched the F-Type, a two-door sports car that takes design cues from the original E-Type.
“When other sites suggested I remove the back seat of my 99 Pontiac to get to the "third light" brake light, your videos showed me the easy way to access and change it through the trunk. Thank you so much for saving me time and extra effort on this and many other projects. I will continue to use your site for a very long time. ”
“I can't tell you how grateful I am for your simple, easy to follow and complete videos. Having recently purchased a 2004 Ford Excursion I've been to your site 5 or 6 times now to find out how to do the $100 mechanic jobs - like changing light bulbs - and every time I've found the videos incredibly helpful. At age 67 I figured my days of doing anything on a car were long over with all of the computerization but your site has showed me that there's still hope :-) Thanks so much for being there! ”
“A great video ”
“I want to thank you. this was a very good guide on how I could change my battery in my Lexus. Well done. Jack ”
“I love this website! Very smart idea. instead of written descriptions of how to change things, you give videos. Why didn't I think of that? ”
