  1. I bought a 62 plate XFS 18 months ago with 96000 on the clock. It's a fantastic car with so many features, I have had a few minor issues like the aircon stopped working (Pressure sensor), the horn not working (ended up being a short circuit which I couldn't get to the bottom of and wired a new horn in on a button on the dash), one of the mirrors wouldn't fold out when it was left in the sun (parked in the shade after that), a relay ticking in the rear pillar for 10 mins when the rear windsceen demister activates itself without illuminating the button (Rear junction box has had water damage which I took to pieces cleaned up and resoldered) that still didn't fix it but it does the ticking a lot less. I also had a less minor issue of a Blown intercooler which seems a common fault on the Sport model. The other stuff I have had done is service stuff (2 self services), front brake disks and pads. I will have to change the rear discs and pads soon and probably replace the rear tyres around the same time. I replaced the foam on the window cable in the drivers door as that was knocking and need to do this on the passenger side soon. Also had independent garages do a Gearbox flush and filter at 100,000 miles and more recently a Full cambelt and Aux belt + tensioner at 115,000 miles.
  2. PG63: That's amazing and encouraging that you have done 150000 miles with so little problems. TJM: I have a 90 mile commute on mostly A roads so DPF shouldn't be an issue.
  3. If you use quality diesel like Shell Nitro+ or the BP Ultimate, these both have additives that will help your DPF regenerate more efficiently. You can also buy DPF additive to add to the fuel and if you are really concerned you can buy an ODB interface that will force a regen at the press of a button. Lots of short journey's are the biggest problem for DPF's.
  4. Thanks for the replies, have either of you had the fluid changed in your gearboxes, I don't know if that is part of the jaguar service schedule? I would recommend getting the wheel geometry done as a lot of the tracking systems get the wheels point straight forward but not at the angle so the tyres still wear incorrectly.
  5. I'm seriously thinking of a 3.0d XF as my next car, probably a 2012 - 2013 model. I have done some research and I can only really find the turbo intercooler weld splitting being an issue with the engine, anyone know if the intercooler is the same for the 237bhp and the 275bhp models? I plan to get something with higher mileage any where between 70000miles - 150000miles what should I look out for and what parts are likely to fail between 70000 miles and 250000miles (If anyone on here has got to that sort of mileage)
