Re: Another Stratstone Closed

That's very interesting Mike.....will pop down to have a look tomorrow. More likely in our area to be new council offices though ! Have now been in to the Crewe dealership that our business was transferred to twice in the last 2 weeks for warranty work and ( long wait for courtesy car apart ) have f...

Re: Any Formula 1 fans here?

No doubt that he is an excellent driver in one of the top two teams with the best cars,support and development. He is also currently somewhat ahead of his team mate who is provided with similar kit. Wouldn't it be interesting to see how good he is in a current dog car like Williams and see how good ...

Re: Used XE buyers guide, from Autocar website.

From my review reading experience only Autoexpress has ever given good reviews of he XE....both new and used. All other publications have been negative to different degrees. This pretty innocuous review mentions it's poor reliability record.....my 6000 mile 200ps MY18 went in to solve a perceived po...

Re: XE owners in North West England

Was up in the Cat and Fiddle area this morning on my MGB's final run before it's winter break....the hills are a test for a 45 year old car ! Was told that reopening is planned for Easter next so it will be a long wait for the XE North West chapter. When I saw this thread it didn't occur to me that ...

Re: Smart Motorways (Again)

You really couldn't make it up......in response to current increasing concerns about crashes on "smart" motorways Jim O'Sullivan CEO of Highways England blames bad driving,nothing wrong with the roads ! Unfortunately as with HS2 the numpties have already wasted far too much of our cash on these mad ...

Re: Another Stratstone Closed

If only the Stoke Rybrook news was so.....this article is from March this year with the then fantasy of a new combined J and LR site next to the Stoke City FC stadium. Since then they have closed the Jaguar Hanley site(made it a sole LR dealership) and "transferred" our Jag business up to Crewe. Sti...

Re: Another Stratstone Closed

Gaspode.....indeed seems good news. Have you sufficient experience of them to recommend them on the forum ? With the Stratstone Stoke demise I am after a recommended dealer.....I seem to be about 30 miles ( ish) from Crewe,Wolves,Tamworth and Derby dealers and the Jaguar " business transferred to" o...

Re: It’s not just Jag dealers....

Vespa.....I can only tell the truth,I know that it does not agree with your often quoted examples of poor VW service but that is not our experience with the local dealer,that happens to be service desk staffed by ex Jag staff from where my XE was bought ( now closed) and service managed by ex BMW st...

Re: It’s not just Jag dealers....

My 200ps is hesitant at low revs/ low speeds.....it seems to be in too high a year to the layperson. My supplying local Jag dealer has closed and the "relationship" transferred to another dealer 25 miles away. Went to book it in to be looked at.....3 and a half weeks wait. Still counting down. My wi...
