At J and G Automotive we believe that using common sense along with regular maintenance is the best way to take care of your Jaguar. Here are some helpful tips to help you keep your Jaguar in the best possible condition.
Inspect your tires monthly for even wear-and-tear. Uneven wear on the tires can indicate the need to have the Jaguar’s tires balanced and aligned. Avoid roads and parking lots with pot holes and speed bumps.
Protect your Jaguar’s doors from unsightly door dings by parking a good distance from building doors, other cars and away from shopping cart return spaces. If you’re in a hurry and park too close to hazards, you may find a fresh ding in your car when you return to it.
Interior Surface Protection
Protect your Jaguar’s leather interior by oiling the material at regularly scheduled intervals. Place sun protectors inside the Jaguar’s interior over seats, the steering wheel, dashboard, and carpet to reduce UV light damage to the car’s interior surfaces. You should schedule interior detailing on a regular basis. Protecting the car’s interior surfaces increases its overall value and marketability in the future.
Winterize Your Jaguar
In the late spring or early fall months, have your Jaguar winterized by a specialty shop like J and G Automotive. Winterizing reduces the wear on the engine during the colder months. Additionally, have the fluids changed and topped off at the end of winter before warmer spring and summer weather temperatures start. This type of maintenance keeps the Jaguar operating under optimum mechanical conditions.
Tips to Reduce Mechanical Problems
Only have your Jaguar taken care of by specialty mechanics and shops. Don’t put your Jaguar in the hands of someone who does not fully understand the mechanics and special needs of this car. Your Jaguar maintenance should only be performed by people specially trained with the skills and knowledge to give your car expert attention and care.
Get References before Work Begins
Find out the reputation of the shop and of the shop’s mechanics before agreeing to have repair or maintenance work performed on your Jaguar. Get references. Ask questions from friends and professional colleagues about which shop and mechanics they entrusted their Jaguar maintenance to. Utilize online resources like Yelp to see what people are saying about Jaguar repair shops in your area. Then choose the best one based on your research.
Regular tune-ups are an important part of your Jaguar maintenance. Schedule these at set time intervals between performances of maintenance. Mileage can vary and is not always the best indicator when a tune-up is needed
Get information on your Maintenance
Each time you receive any type of Jaguar maintenance, request a list of services performed on the car. Ask for the products used to do each of the services. The products should include brand names, specifications and other identifying information. Put the Jaguar maintenance records in the glove box or an other safe and clean place. If there is a problem with the Jaguar, you will be glad to have these types of records at your fingertips.
