When you purchase a Jaguar, your vehicle’s repairs will automatically be covered by the Jaguar warranty, which lasts up to five years or 60,000 miles. Once the manufacturer’s warranty expires, you may purchase a Jaguar extended warranty or opt for a plan from a different provider.

Any vehicle can benefit from an extended warranty, including used cars and cars with higher mileage. CARCHEX helps customers find tailored protection plans at affordable prices. Learn more about CARCHEX extended warranties and our 20 years of customer experience.

EliteCare: The 2021 Jaguar Warranty

The cost of repairing a Jaguar can run from $80 to over $10,000 for large repairs, and these costs can be significantly reduced or eliminated with a warranty. Jaguar vehicles come with a manufacturer’s warranty included in the price of the vehicle.

While most manufacturer warranties include a powertrain warranty and a shorter new vehicle limited warranty (also considered a bumper-to-bumper warranty), Jaguar provides the same length of coverage for both the powertrain and all other systems of the vehicle: five years or 60,000 miles.

In addition to bumper-to-bumper coverage, the manufacturer’s warranty comes with:

  • I-PACE electric vehicle battery coverage for 8 years or 100,000 miles
  • Paint and corrosion warranty for 6 years or unlimited miles
  • Complimentary scheduled maintenance for 5 years or 60,000 miles (within one month or 1,000 miles of the scheduled maintenance interval)
  • Complimentary roadside assistance
  • Jaguar InControl® Remote & Protect™ coverage
  • Transferable coverage to a new owner

What is Jaguar InControl®? It is a touchscreen tablet that connects your vehicle with GPS, roadside assistance, driver assistance, and other features through a number of apps. It allows you to connect your smartphone to your vehicle, as well as protect and control your vehicle while you are away.

Jaguar Warranty Exclusions

The Jaguar EliteCare warranty is quite generous compared to other manufacturer warranties that have three-year or 36,000-mile limited coverage. The warranty, however, does come with exclusions.

  • Regular wear and tear
  • Accidental damage
  • Personal modifications
  • Neglect or lack of regular maintenance

While routine maintenance is covered under Jaguar warranties, it does not cover the replacement of tires, wiper blades, brake pads, and other commonly replaced wear and tear parts.

Jaguar Approved Coverage: CPO Vehicles

If you purchase a certified pre-owned vehicle under the Jaguar Approved program, you’ll get a pre-owned Jaguar that has been reconditioned to “like-new” quality.

Jaguar Approved vehicles must pass a 165-point mechanical, electrical, and safety test in order to qualify for coverage. It is inspected and tested on the road by a certified technician to ensure quality and safety for the new driver.

CPO coverage lasts up to seven years or 100,000 miles and includes 24/7 roadside assistance.

Prolong Protection with a Jaguar Extended Warranty

Jaguar vehicles are prone to certain problems, such as suspension problems and water leaks, and they are not ranked among some of the top luxury vehicles for longevity, according to an iSeeCars study, which analyzed 13.8 million cars sold in 2018.

What does this mean for Jaguar owners? First, it means that Jaguar vehicles may need a bit more help in reaching 200,000 miles. It also means that owners may be plagued with more repairs and replacements than with some other vehicles. If your EliteCare manufacturer’s warranty expires, you will have to cover the full cost of repairs on your own.

How much do these repairs cost? Take a look at common Jaguar repairs below.

Jaguar XJ6Axle shaft seal replacement$527 to $634
Jaguar XJSFuel level sending unit replacement$630 to $1,102
Jaguar XK8AC evaporator replacement$1,611 to $1,803
Jaguar XEFuel pump replacement$1,177 to $1,204

Whether repairs are a few hundred dollars or a few thousand dollars, an extended warranty can greatly reduce your costs. You’ll only have to pay a deductible and the cost of the warranty itself, which can be made simple with smaller monthly payments. This is true for both the manufacturer’s extended warranty and a third-party warranty.

Why Purchase a Third-Party Extended Warranty?

Independent vehicle service contracts are not confined to one specific car model. Using a third-party warranty company, like CARCHEX, opens up coverage to new and used vehicles across many brands and mileage levels.

When you extend your coverage with CARCHEX, you won’t be confined to repairs at a particular dealership, so you can seek repairs at a location that is close and convenient for you.

CARCHEX also uses its buying power to find more competitive deals on extended warranty contracts. You’ll have coverage options across five tier levels, from Titanium to Bronze. Whether you need basic powertrain coverage or exclusionary coverage (only a short list of excluded items are stated on the contract), your coverage will meet your vehicle’s needs more closely.

CARCHEX Coverage Terms

The average lifespan of vehicles on U.S. roads is currently 11.8 years. As we use our cars longer, we need longer warranty coverage to keep our cars running safely.

The average CARCHEX plan ranges from five to seven years with some plans offering coverage up to 10 years. There are multiple options for vehicles with more than 60,000 miles, so you can pick up right where the manufacturer’s warranty leaves off.
