    Exclamation XF near end of 6 year warranty? Check behind your doors !

    Morning everyone,

    I would VERY STRONGLY advise anyone and everyone who cares about their Jaguar XF with steel doors nearing the end of its 6 year corrosion warranty to remove door cards and other panels to check for signs of rust/corrosion where a sound deadening panel has been applied - may be seen as little bubbling areas around the edge of the panel and even orange tinted stains showing on the panel itself.

    If you see anything like that, I would get it reported and fixed ASAP, and also share your findings!

    I think Jaguar are fully aware of the issue but are just being irresponsible, totally unfitting of a prestige brand. It may also be that they corrected the manufacturing fault at some point (showing further prior awareness).

    Regardless, for 20 minutes or less effort it could save some serious mither down the line:

    If Jaguar are to survive in the prestige market they need to give a 12 year corrosion warrantee as the other prestige manufactures do
