The leaked report says 'could' be sold but TATA, the current owners, deny JLR is for sale.

I personally hope this is all a load of Fake News.
Hope so too, otherwise it’s the first and last Jag I’ll ever own
Me too!

Re: Stop-Start. A different query

At my cars last service I asked the service manager whether the stop/start system would reduce the life of the starter motor. He said the starter motor was not involved. It was the alternator that restarted the car. He tried to explain it to me, but unfortunately as my knowledge of mechanics is negl...

Re: CTEK Battery Charger

I put up with many niggles for around 2 1/2 years with the S/S being the most annoying. Last year to now and less than 4000 miles I thought everything was going great and nothing wrong. Cured I thought and today this started with the wipers again. It had done it intermitantly in the past and just r...

I must admit even though I have spent money on it I think it will soon be finding a new owner. The replacement will not be a Jaguar either.
What replacements are you considering, Vespa?

Re: Corris Grey gone.

What is it with JLR and their shades of grey? I think their designers must be colour blind. Make the colours that are restricted to the SRV range available across the board -- they sell so few of them they are exclusive enough. I may be old, but I still like bright colours. I'd pay the going price f...

Re: XE 2016-18 2.0L Engine Recall

All I’ve read of it so far is that the stop/start will kick in sooner from a cold start on petrol models that are affected. My stop/start never kicks in even after a 200 mile non-stop drive. I pressed them to fix it when I took it in for the first service, and they said, "don't worry about it, they...

Don't underestimate the 20t -- it will roar and sprint if you let it loose. :o

Re: My first Jaguar

Greetings and welcome from a fellow Lancastrian.

I have the same colour, and the same rain falling on it. :D

I'm now on my second XE and my retirement has been a lot happier since I bought it.
