J.D. Power and Associates predicts the reliability of the 2013 through 2015 line of Jaguar cars at two to three stars on a four-star scale. As of 2012, Jaguar ranked last among cars rated in the Consumer Reports annual auto reliability survey. Reliability ratings differ because surveys are conducted at different times and review different aspects of cars.
The Consumer Reports survey asks respondents if they've had serious problems with their cars within the past year. Many Jaguar owners responding to Auto Express rank the reliability of their cars at one or two stars out of five, citing problems with the electrical systems, gears and fuel supplies. However, many others rate the car highly and state that they've had no problems.
The Jaguar brand was founded in England in 1922. Jaguar was one of the first British car makers to export to North America, with distribution set up through New York in 1954. The company was sold to Ford in 1990. In 2008, Ford sold Jaguar to Tata Motors of India. As of 2014, Jaguar cars are still designed and built in England. Jaguar has had significant success in sports racing. Jaguar unveiled a two-seat, electric concept car at the Paris Motor Show in 2010.
