Newbie with first Jag

Recommended Posts

Well, now the kids have grown up and we have made our final house move, we no longer need "sensible" cars. So I have dipped my toe into the world of Jaguar.

 

I have just purchased a 58 plate X Type 2.2D SE, Auto, in black. 

 

My last car was a 1.4 petrol Megane, and what a difference. I actually want to drive my 30 mile commute between Liverpool and Manchester every morning now. Leather, heated seats, cruise control, better fuel consumption. Completely different way to drive. I love it.

 

If I have a complaint, its the lack of bluetooth audio or USB. But that's the same with many cars of this type.

 

I do believe I have seen the last petrol engined car on my driveway and possibly  my first of many Jags.

Welcome to the Club, Steve.

 

I was told that when I got my first Jaguar I would never buy another make.  It is true.

 

My S type, my second Jaguar, is a diesel, and also great to drive.

 

Enjoy the Jaguar experience.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

I know exactly how you feel. I've had my jag for 18 months and every time I get behind the wheel I smile.

Badish news. Last weekend the gearbox error light came on. I only had the car a week! but it had come with an extended warranty so it was put into Hatfields Jaguar in Liverpool. They diagnosed a broken turbo, which was replaced and I got her back today. On the plus side the loan car was a brand new XE with 170 miles on the clock,. So everything turned out alright. Annoying, but hasn't jaded my view of my x type.
