How often should my Jaguar get serviced?
Servicing recommendations are found in your vehicle handbook but are normally different from one customer to another. Jaguar normally suggests for it to be serviced after a certain period of time or after a given amount of distance it has covered.
If you are unsure whether your Jaguar is due a service, please simply give us a call.
What do you check during servicing?
The quality of service given to your Jaguar will ensure maximum performance. Every Jaguar is subjected to a comprehensive check list which can be viewed HERE.
The parts and fluids used in our service are manufactured, tested designed and approved by Jaguar standards. Our skilled technicians have over 25 years of experience of working exclusively on all models of Jaguars and we treat every car as if it's our own.
How long does a service take?
The length of the service will depend on the condition, age and model of the car. Generally, we would require the vehicle for at least half a day. You will be kept up to date with the process and we will never carry out any work without your approval.
Do you offer courtesy cars?
Yes we do (and it's a jag!). Alternatively, we can also offer transport to the local train station and into the town centre.
Do you service automatic gearboxes?
Yes we do. We have over 25 years of experience in servicing all models of Jaguar cars.
What do I need to bring to a service?
For older models, we would need the servicing book for stamps. For newer models, we can update the vehicle's records directly on the Topix Database for your convenience and provide a copy for your records. We would also need the locking wheelnut for the alloy wheels.
Will it void my manufacturer's warranty?
Contrast to popular belief, having work carried out by Nene Jag Specialists will not void your car's dealer warranty. Whether you need a quick check-up or completely rebuilding the engine, we offer a cost-effective alternative to main dealer prices with no compromise in quality.

What is the best tyre choice for my Jaguar?
The ideal tyre choice depends on the model of the Jaguar and the current season. We ensure you make the right choice at an affordable price. It's convenient since you can book you car in with us and the qualified technicians will do the rest.
As an example, if you drive an F-TYPE, The Pirelli PZERO tyres are recommended for summer use and Pirelli Sottozero' 3 for driving in Winter. We will always offer a range of options and our professional advice so you can make an informed decision. If you are ever unsure, please simply call us on 01733 349 042 for more information.
Do you use genuine Jaguar parts?

What is the importance of oils and lubricants?
Lubricating oils have in a great way improved the durability and efficiency of cars. It also helps to prevent corrosion of any moving parts. You should always check your oil and ensure it is at the right level. It will serve as a prevention for overheating and coagulation.
