The Perils of Loaning Your XE

Recently I offered to loan my husband my XE while his Discovery Sport was in for an oil change as I could easily collect it for him. He smiled sweetly and accepted my offer. I handed over my key with trepidation. The last time he drove my car was before he was run in and he was a very different Jagu...

Re: Ex Demonstrators are they worth the risk?

My first XE belonged to a manager car at the dealership and it was flawless. I owned it for 2 years and had no problems at all. The worst I ever had was a former motability Vauxhall Vectra. It had a tow bar fitted, so I assume it was used to tow a caravan. Damn thing’s front suspension completely co...

Unusually I was sat in the passenger seat and had the chance to take in the sm...

Re: Speed Limit Reductions

No - no yellow background. If it truly is for safety reasons surely it would be sensible to alert people to this to draw attention to the dangers of the road.

Speed Limit Reductions

I turned on to a B road near our home yesterday and got up to 60mph, at which point my speed warning flashed. I admit to being a bit confused and checked with the car’s display, which said 50mph. I then saw a speed limit sign which said 50mph. When I used the same road about 2 weeks ago I did 60mph ...
