Jaguar is one of the premiere British automobiles available in the worldwide marketplace. Unfortunately, Jaguar vehicles also have a reputation for expensive and frequent maintenance. And for a luxury built vehicle, they also tend to break down easily. Luxury is not without its price. This is why it is important that Jaguar owners consider protecting their investment with a Jaguar extended warranty.
There are a lot of common misconceptions with the Jaguar warranty and today we will clarify a few things. We also will stress the benefits for when it comes to protecting Jaguar cars with the help of a vehicle service contract – commonly referred to as an extended auto warranty.
The following article, we are going to explore the following:
- What Was Covered By Jaguar Factory Warranty?
- Jaguar Manufacturer’s Warranty Expiration Dates.
- Why Jaguar Vehicles Need Vehicle Protection.
- How Much Does A Jaguar Extended Warranty Cost?
- Which New and Used Jaguar Vehicles Qualify For Coverage?
- Can You Get a Bumper to Bumper Jaguar Warranty on New and Used Vehicles?
- What to Know Before Buying a Jaguar Extended Warranty.
- Why You Should Purchase a Protection Plan for Your Jaguar.
Owning a Jaguar vehicle and keeping it on the road is already a notoriously expensive endeavor. Reputable third-party providers, like Endurance, are important when it comes to offering new and used Jaguar owners extended protection when their manufacturer’s warranty has expired.
WHAT WAS COVERED IN THE JAGUAR FACTORY WARRANTY:
The Jaguar manufacturer’s warranty was updated recently in response to criticism that they weren’t protecting their high-maintenance cars. Jaguars may break down, but they are still built using very expensive parts and components.
Unfortunately for Jaguars, what was once an investment, quickly becomes a burden. This holds for owners once the warranty ends.
The Jaguar New Vehicle Warranty Includes:
- 5-year / 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. This protects all new Jaguar vehicles’ key “powertrain components. These parts include the components that allow the car to drive like the engine, transmission, and drive axle.
- Unlike other luxury vehicles who offer bumper to bumper warranties for a shorter span than the powertrain warranty, Jaguar also includes 5-year / 60,000-mile warranty Jaguar Bumper to Bumper Warranty.
The combination of powertrain and bumper to bumper warranty with the same exact terms sounds like an advantage Jaguar has over other luxury brands. That is not the case. Jaguar is mostly trying to protect their reputation by including the expected repair costs for all of their cars in the initial sale price.

WHY JAGUAR’S NEED VEHICLE PROTECTION
Jaguar is a name that is synonymous with British luxury and style. They have been considered, next to Aston Martin, to be the symbol of British engineering for decades. Once upon a time they even supplied cars to the Queen, the Queen Mother, and Prince Charles.
And yet Jaguar is consistently plagued with the issue of dependability. They may have prestigious build quality and style, but they always rank low when it comes to reliability. Jaguar vehicles break down frequently and easily. And the price to have those repairs taken care of are quite high.
While many automotive publications claim that the reliability of Jaguar is changing for the better, it was only two years ago when Jaguar started providing industry-consistent factory warranties for their cars. Jaguar is a decades-old institution, but they don’t quite know how to match the prestige of their nameplate with the demands of drivers who want a vehicle that performs as well as it looks.
Jaguars are an investment and we mean that in both good and bad ways. And unfortunately Jaguars need some sort of way to have the expected repairs AND unexpected repairs covered when they need them to be. Jaguar adheres to the industry minimum. That is why shopping for third-party provided coverage is more important for their cars than other luxury vehicles.
HOW MUCH DOES AN JAGUAR EXTENDED WARRANTY COST?
Jaguar cars are among the most expensive to buy and even more expensive to own. They constantly rank low on reliability ratings. The cost for repair and replacement parts are incredibly high.
For an understanding of this, take a look at the most common Jaguar (across all current models) repairs:
- Alternator replacement—$687 to $1,499
- Water pump replacement—$953 to $3,805
- Head gasket replacement—$1,631 to $3,828
The irony is that breakdowns are considered the unexpected, but Jaguars are expected to break down. So why leave yourself open especially once Jaguar stops paying for repairs? Jaguars, can and will break down over time, don’t get caught footing the bill!
The key to owning a Jaguar is to have total protection for your vehicle.

JAGUAR VEHICLES AVAILABLE FOR JAGUAR WARRANTY COVERAGE:
There are only a handful of Jaguar models in the US marketplace. The brand does this to make their cars rarer, similar to limited runs of other luxury items. Of their six main models, only four of them (the F-Type, F-Pace, S-Type and XJR) still qualify for Jaguar’s new vehicle warranty.
An advantage Endurance has being an independent-provider, is that we can continue to support new and used Jaguar vehicles that no longer qualify for the Jaguar extended warranty.
Jaguar has gone through several overhauls in their lineups. They frequently discontinue vehicles and most of their models are merely different trims for the six that we listed above. Endurance can provide coverage to the vehicles listed above and many discontinued models as well.
CAN YOU GET A BUMPER TO BUMPER JAGUAR WARRANTY ON NEW AND USED VEHICLES?
If you have a Jaguar, there’s no question, you need extended vehicle protection. You will be using it for all the costly repairs that come with owning a Jaguar. And the best part of opting for one provided by a third party company, like Endurance, is that coverage is available for all new and used Jaguar vehicles.
In addition to cutting the cost of Jaguar repairs, here is what else you get with a Jaguar protection plan:
- Peace of mind—You never know when or where a Jaguar will have issues. If thinking about the inevitable costly car repairs keeps you up at night instead opt to for that extra safety net to put your mind at ease.
- Long-term value— Jaguars are a difficult car to keep but most owners plan on keeping them for a long time. It is for this reason that extended coverage helps make the cost of Jaguar ownership more affordable over time without diminishing the value of the cars themselves.
- Increased resale value—Just because your Jaguar is less expensive to own doesn’t mean it is less valuable. An extended protection plan makes it more in demand for resale and allows owners to actually raise the price when selling the car.
- Additional services—Every protection plan will come with competitive benefits packages on par with automakers like 24-hour roadside assistance and rental cars.
WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE BUYING A JAGUAR EXTENDED WARRANTY:
Jaguar loves their air of mystique and exclusivity. That’s why they “encourage” Jaguar owners to keep to using their dealerships and services for all repair work. However, it’s more beneficial for Jaguar owners to be able to take their car anywhere, whenever they need serious work done. Jaguar dealers are notorious for controlling prices, especially once the factory warranty is over.
AVERAGE REPAIR COSTS FOR A JAGUAR XJ (FROM REPAIR PAL, UPDATED AUGUST 2018):
|Water Pump Replacement||from $1273 to $1384|
|Head Gasket Replacement||from $2191 to $3361|
|Oil Pump Replacement||from $1795 to $2837|
|Alternator Replacement||from $867 to $882|
|Door Window Motor Replacement||from $392 to $544|
|Starter Replacement||from $920 to $939|
JAGUAR EXTENDED WARRANTY OR THIRD-PARTY VEHICLE PROTECTION?
You may believe that it is probably better to buy an extended warranty for a Jaguar directly from the manufacturer. However, not only does Jaguar give owners a handful of restrictions and term limits, they also overcharge for this warranty.
They are increasing the cost of ownership of their cars, because they want you to believe that their warranties are your only option for coverage. The truth is Jaguar-provided plans simply can’t compare to third-party offerings.
As a direct provider of vehicle protection, Endurance, can offer drivers affordable plans with competitive rates for the absolute longest coverage terms.
Coverage from Endurance can cover repairs for the following components:
- Air Conditioner
- Brake Systems
- Cooling System
- Drive Axle Assembly
- Electronic Components
- Front & Rear Suspension
- Fuel System
- Transfer Unit
- Turbocharger / Supercharger

*A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended auto warranty”, but is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and an administrator that states what’s a covered repair and what’s not. Endurance is an administrator of VSCs and does not sell warranties.*
