Scared of my Jaguar


Topic starter

Scotty, I recently bought a 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE convertible V-6 S model 380hp, AWD, with 5100 miles for $48000. The dealer replaced the two rear tires and my mechanic suggested replacing the two front tires because he saw a 2014 date code on them, they also had some flat spots. My mechanic also suggested changing the oil to Mobil 1 0W-20 so we know it has the correct weight. I added some Lucas fuel injector cleaner to the last tank of gas. I absolutely love the car. It's a rolling work of art. I'm planning on driving the car 2-5k miles per year. It will NOT be a daily driver. I'm scared that it's a Jaguar. Do you have any advice to prevent future headaches. 

I enjoy your videos!

Best Regards,

Jim D.

Make sure it’s under warranty.  Otherwise, if not, set aside tens of thousands of dollars in an emergency fund.


Personally, get it out of your system and then sell the thing before it leaves you in the poorhouse.


Please do not post personal contact information such as phone numbers or email addresses. No one from here will contact you that way, it just invites spammers and scammers. Thank you.

I've now edited that out as well.
