Welcome to the club, Paul.

Sharing information is part of the club's success. 

If any one has an issue there is always someone who can offer a possible solution.

The s type is a great car, but if you don't treat it correctly it will let you know.

Use premium fuel and keep your battery in good order, and you will get your reward.

Regards,

Peter.

Thanks Peter, good to know help is at hand when needed.  Have to agree about premium fuel, have always used it in all cars in the past. First time Jag owner at the age of 60+ , learning week by week.

Kind regards Paul and wife (Trish)

Hi Paul,

I have my first Jaguar when I was 77 and my 11 year old Rover 825 Rover Sterling was getting rather tatty and a respray would have cost more than the car was worth.

Someone said that a Jaguar was an old man's car  ---  not so.  Driving a Jaguar keeps you young!

Regards,

Peter.

Thanks Peter, my children (who are in their late forties) have made the same comment.  Now we need a bit of help, following your advice regarding the importance of a reliable battery. We don't know how old the battery is so would rather be safe than sorry as we have a trip to Yorkshire planned in a few weeks. Please can you advise what sort of premium battery, make and price would be best (we're not looking for cheap). Kind regards Paul

Hi Paul and Trish,

Modern batteries are all usually pretty good.  Some people prefer Bosch and some Varta etc.  There is a small but very knowledgeable Auto Accessory shop close to where I live, and he fitted a Platinum Battery which are reputedly rather good.

Halfords have a fair selection and they will fit it for you.  BUT make sure you have your radio code with you as disconnecting the battery mean you have to reset your settings, which is not too difficult.

There is a post with the full details of hoe to do it but if you can't find it get back to me and I will send you the full details.

Regards,

Peter.

Hello Peter, new Bosch battery all fitted and everything OK. Garage told me it was the original battery, no wonder I was having a few teething problems.

Hello Peter,

My daughter (aged 42) has informed me that it's an old man's car. She wants a lift to the airport next month so we will give her the train fare.  If it's an old man's car, bring it on. The wife and I love it.

Our daughter of similar age has forbidden me climbing on to the garage roof to repair it, but she won't allow me to get old!  She loves my Jaguar!

Welcome to the club, Daniel.

Which car to buy is always dependent on what you want to do with it.

If you want a big roomy car, then both the latest XF and the XJ are superb cars, quick and also sedate when you want them to be.  If you want a smaller car then the XE comes in a variety of models.

If it is a sports car you are looking for the F Type is the one to buy  ---   a great car  --  I see two regularly round here.

Jaguar has a great choice of cars available and I am certain that you will find the one you want,

Regards,

Peter.
