On collection, things to check

Recommended Posts

Hi All

First post, just joined the forum. Am collecting my first Jag this week (2017 XF). One previous dealer owner.

I was just wondering if there is something typical I should check for; known/common snags which could be easy to miss before signing acceptance of the vehicle?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Hi M@v3ri1ck,

Not sure if this would apply to a 2017 XF, but in my case (2011 XF-S) there was a musty smell from the pollen filter (replaced before collection) and a rattle from the window guides in the driver's door (also replaced or fixed).

Also, a few months after I got the car, I had to replace all 4 brake discs and pads, not covered by warranty - c£950!

Final thing, the previous owner had fitted £60 Chinese 'Triangle' tyres - horrible in the wet. Also replaced by nice new Pirellis for £800.

MOT next month - eek!

Love the XF though!
