Jag Service Scheme

Post by Matt Hutchings » Tue Nov 29, 2016 4:00 pm

What are your thoughts on the service schemes Jag offer?

It's been mentioned that with my nearly new XE 2.0D 180 I can opt for 5 year service cover for £500(something).

I know these engines aren't hungry for services and are certainly not on the expensive side. Whats the consensus? It sounds like a good deal but I only do 8-10,000 miles a year.

Cheers,
Matt

I think the plans are good value. I took out the three year plan for my petrol 240 for just over £400.

When you add up the stupid cost of the oil (£17/£18 a litre :shock: ) that soon takes up a fair amount of the initial outlay.

Yep, if you are going to keep the car past a couple of services then definitely worth it.
A service on mine was over £400 :shock:
As Bob says a lot of which is for the oil which is hideously expensive from the dealer.

£18 per liter!! I hope it adds some ponies at that sort of price!

Good to know, chaps. I'll add that to the growing list.

For me it's well worth it as I got them to throw in the high mileage plan for free when I ordered the car (so try bartering with them), even if they hadn't I'd have still gone for it as I do about 90,000 miles over the 3 years I keep cars so the servicing and adblue top-ups made it a no-brainer, even at full price.

£400 or £500 is certainly a good deal - no mention of the scheme was made to us. We only do about 5000m a year in the Jag, but I'm a firm believer in annual oil and filter changes, even at that low mileage, and even though I predominantly don't use the XE for short trips. But - does the deal include oil and filter every 12 months, irrespective of mileage??

As you have the 240 petrol (same as mine) the cost is for a full service every year, oil, filters etc.

Service interval is yearly or every 10K for the 2 litre petrol engined cars.

Matt,

We picked up our Jaguar approved 180 RSport last weekend, it came with the first two services free, we were told this was. Jaguar initiative.

What does the 5 year service cover include, the diesel service interval is two years 21k miles, so it might not cover as many services as you think dependant on the age if your car.

In the USA all normal maintenance is included for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Is that not the same in the UK?

Nope we have to pay a little extra. Although I think there is a difference is spec between UK and US cars. So 'swings and roundabouts' really.
