great cars , but the diesel don't like short runs, they can be trouble some if only run short miles due to dpf's

but they do like long runs, keep a regular eye on oil level, biggest killer of the diesel is diesel in the engine oil, which kills the engine, first symptoms are oil level rising

good ones will give plenty of smiles per miles

brake servo is another common fault

Welcome to the club, Alan.

Joe has mentioned a few rather important caveats.

I have the same model S TypeD as yourself, and I have never had a problem with the DPF due to preventative maintenance.  I do a lot of short runs but I do make sure both DPF and EGR valves are looked after.  

The use of premium fuel and the adding of Millers Diesel Eco Plus at every full fill up is a first, and a long run -- about 20 minutes at over 45 mph  -- can clean the DPF, and an oil  check every week can make sure that the DPF regeneration is not sending some fuel oil back into the engine. What I do if the engine oil has increased is to remove 2 litres and dispose of it safely, and then add 1 litre of fresh engine oil.  You can buy a gadget that can extract oil via the dipstick tube, and a bottle of Coca Cola can clean any spillage

The EGR valves in my car - there are two - were replaced a few months ago, not a too expensive bill and worthwhile.

Some drivers might think that a car is just a car, but you have a Jaguar, and one that, in my opinion, is a future classic and should be looked after.

The first Jaguars were designed and built in Lancashire, and as a Lancastrian in exile I am rather proud of the marque.
