Jaguar XJ X351 Portfolio 3.0 V6 D Caviar
So true Glenn, the problem is ours no doubt regarding the battery, as we don't cover the miles to keep it topped up, now hopefully rectified with the charger.I think Jaguars get a bad rap for reliability. I suspect not much worse than some. However, I understand your view point, in regards the battery having to be tip top etc. I suppose these cars were sold to be exec cars and not really sat about for weeks on end when new.
The downside I guess is, as they filter down the food chain, a lot of these exec cars don't stand the reliability test of time where they are in the hands of mere mortals like us and, although not run on a shoestring, won't always be ran without a financial limit.
I don't mind spending the money on our vehicles to keep them in good shape ... perhaps you could have a gentle word with my bestest friend to let go of the purse strings once in a while, so that I can do just that
