BIG BILL

Recommended Posts

My 2003 XJ6 (El-Grandé) suffered a breakdown. The gear selector linkage bolts had somehow fallen out. So I took into to a Jaguar service centre for repairs. While there I thought I'd get the car serviced as well. Lots of problems were found. Too many to list. The final bill? £4547.82. YES, Four thousand, five hundred and forty-seven pounds, eighty-two pence. No holiday this year. Wife not happy. The XJ6 feels very fit though.

Here is an example of costs:

 

Diagnostics:  Main Dealer  £69.

                      Independent Garage.  £30.

                      The mobile mechanic I use £20.

 

Same job, same equipment, same diagnosis.

Hey Peter,

would your mobile mechanic's run by any chance include Australia??

Sorry to hear Michael.

I am going through the same with my S-Type, but only @ GBP 3,000.

On the up-side, we are still driving Jaguars, whereas my neighbour isn't........

Had the S-type V8 serviced at Stratstone Jaguar in Milton Keynes, very reasonable at £280.

 

However they found two slight Oil leaks from the auto box, estimated cost of repair £4488.00 (that's right, four thousand)

 

Actual cost of repair from ZF certified transmission specialist including gearbox service £410.23.

 

Stealership doesn't even begin to describe them!!!
