Even to other luxury car owners, Jaguar represents an even higher standard of excellence. Built for maximum performance, durability and comfort, Jaguar’s also require superior service and maintenance performed by experienced professionals. If you are new to owning a Jaguar or you have previously owned one it is important to know what routine maintenance and services your car needs to stay in perfect condition. Knowing what maintenance your car needs and when will help you find mechanics that you can trust to get the job done correctly. Jaguar’s designed service schedule is broken into 3 mileage milestones that make finding the perfect maintenance for your vehicle easier than ever before.
Routine Maintenance 5,000 Miles
No maintenance is unimportant but the 5,000-mile service appointment is made up mostly of preventative measures. These are designed to help avoid long-term issues and detect minor problems before they become more severe. Some of the services that should be performed as a part of this appointment includes:
- Engine oil and filter change
- Check and top off all other fluids
- Inspection of the undercarriage for signs of any damages or problems
- Full tire rotation and inspection
- Check all belts and hoses under the hood
- Ensure that the air conditioner and heater are functioning properly
- Check your car’s windshield wipers and washers
Every 15,000 Miles
The next major scheduled maintenance comes at the 15,000-mile mark and is made up of a bit more technical services. These services are designed to help maintain overall efficiency. As part of this service appointment your mechanic should always:
- Replace all spark plugs
- Check air filter and replace if it is needed
- Full brake inspection
While there are other important parts of this inspection these three services are crucial to ensuring that your Jaguar is in perfect running condition.
Lastly, At 30,000 Miles
Another inspection rounds out the three maintenance appointments with the 30,000 mile inspection being all-points and extremely thorough. While many mechanics may say they are capable of servicing any Jaguar it is important that your car receives work from someone who truly knows what they’re doing. Improper service or failure to adhere to the recommended maintenance can lead to major issues with your vehicle long-term as well as immediate affects on day-to-day performance.
- Change transmission fluid and filter
- Complete inspection of exhaust system
- Change the power steering fluid
- Replace the O2 Sensor at 90,000 miles (every 3rd 30,000 mile inspection)
- Inspect and replace battery if it is 4 years old or fails test
- Inspect brake discs, rotors, brake fluids and hoses and pads
- Inspect the entire cooling system
- Thorough inspection of engine and engine mounts as well as exhaust system
- Inspect and replace headlights and other lights/controls as needed
While these are just a few of the important parts of this inspection, it is vital that full inspections and fluid checks take place. This way your entire car is kept in perfect working condition.
Unfortunately Nothing Is Never That Easy
