problem #1

Mar 032003

X-Type 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 12,000 miles
Steering vibration started after replacement of clutch at 12000 miles ( clutch seized). Dealer said wheels were buckled and swapped, on further work 2 months later ( took 2 months for part) dealer states 4 wheels are buckled ( includes spare that was unused). Only option is to purchase 4 new wheels ( X type 3.0 sport). Jaguar have been singularly unhelpful and car has been in repairs for 22 days since received in June 2002.
