Re: Do you Diesel Guys use Premium Diesel?

I accidentally filled up with Premium Diesel once, (don't ask !). I noticed no difference at all, to be honest, except for the impact on my wallet ! However, I gave it a good test and did another fill, and again, no difference that I noticed, so I'm back on the regular stuff, but usually not superma...

Re: Serviced - oil changed?

I recently had the oil and filter changed on my XE 200D a year after the previous service, because I don't think it is a good idea to have a 2-year or 21k miles interval. This is especially so when the oil can get diluted by diesel fuel when the DPF regeneration is interrupted. Whilst it seemed less...

Re: Best MPG You've Had?

My XE is AWD with the 2 litre 200PS diesel engine, and just like my two previous cars, (XJs X350 model), I just let the trip counter run so I get a good idea of overall fuel consumption over the months. I have never bettered 46 mpg, and I don't do a lot of short journeys either, although inevitably ...

Re: Jag XE FEELS LIKE CROSS WIND HITTING IT

My XE is rocksteady, so there is clearly something very wrong with yours. I would suggest an immediate examination of the tyres, especially the make of tyre. Are they the same on each axle ? My MG TF was so twitchy when I bought it 6 years ago, I was going to sell it on, but a change to the recommen...

Re: XE Production Restart

The early XEs had all the hallmarks of a rushed job. Poor door sealing thus the door shut faces get filthy, no cover over the cup holders, low rent trim material in a lot of places. Trouble is if the XE is dropped, it affects the economics of the XF, because there are a lot of common components, and...

Re: MOT due soon. Where should I go?

I keep my cars now over 5 years and have never had a fail in over the past 30+ years using dealers and Nat Tyres. Just look after a car and it will never fail. Not sure about "never fail" but I do agree that cars need looking after, not neglecting. I'm now on my third Jaguar since 2010, and had a M...

Re: Jag XE 2.0l Diesel

Sounds like previous owners are the people who've let you down. 3000 miles over the service interval that is already rather long at 21k miles, or was this you letting it run over ? As said by Jeff123, I can't see Jaguar helping you on this. In addition, in the Owner Manual the owner is told of a num...

Re: Dimensions of a Jaguar Part

Why can't you measure the one on your own car ? Or have I missed something ? AFAIK there is no on-line resource, but try a Google search using key words.

Re: Jaguar XE 2016 Suspension

Sounds like a broken coil spring. My last car was an air-sprung 2007 XJ6 Sovereign and the forums for that model were always complaining about the suspension going down. Over time small leaks would start that would eventually cause the car to drop down. ON start-up the car would level up when the ai...
