Recommended Posts

hi guys & gals

im in the market for an xfr and i have 2 in my sight that im interested in

a 2013 with 27k on the clock with the 8 speed auto 

a 2015 with 48k with the 8 speed auto


at what mileage/year should i be worried about the common timing chain issue rearing its ugly head?

both cars have full jaguar history.

Welcome to the club, Matt.

Both of the cars you are looking at sound quite good.

I would not be worried about the cam chain at all.  If the engine on the cars you are looking at has a cam belt it is usually 10 years or 105,000 miles.

My s type has the 2.7 diesel engine and has 86,000 miles on the clock  and had a new engine while at the dealers when 2 years old under warranty  --  the cam belt has not been changed as a very good mechanic saw it and felt that it was in a very good condition.-, even though it was 12 years old! 

Just enjoy the car  --  Grace, Space, and Pace.
