Fit for Royalty? Queen Drives Jaguar Home from Church

Posted 9/11/17

Need undeniable proof that a Jaguar is a luxury car fit for a queen? Look no further. The Queen herself was just spotted driving her Jaguar home from church.

The 91-year old Royal was seen driving her Jaguar back to the Royal Palace following a Sunday morning service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor Park.

The Queen loves to drive and is often seen driving her cars on the Sandringham estate. Aside from park rangers, she is the only person allowed to drive down the 2.6-mile Long Walk in Windsor.

Truly Royal Luxury Vehicles

Which cars does she prefer when she’s behind the wheel? Check out this slideshow from the Telegraph of all the vehicles Her Majesty has driven since World War II. Believe it or not, the Queen has been known to cruise around in a Land Rover from time to time.

In fact, she learned to drive while serving as a mechanic in the Women’s Auxillary Territorial Service during the Second World War. One can’t help but ask, does she know how to repair Jaguars?

And FYI, she also happens to be the only person in the UK allowed to drive without a license. Who’s going to pull over the Queen?

Why Mileage has Nothing to do with Flushing Your Brakes

How often should you flush your brakes? That depends. Every car manufacturer has its own recommendation, and even that is an educated guess at best. Chevy says every 45,000 miles. Honda says 3 years, regardless of mileage. Mercedes? Every two years or 20,000 miles. Some people will even tell you never. Since brake fluid lives in an enclosed system, it can last for years. Problems result, however, when that system isn’t as enclosed as you think. Hoses and attachments wear down over time, which can cause water and other contaminants to leak into the system. What you really need to do is have your brake fluid inspected from time to time. That’s the best way to see if you need a flush service. Mileage might as well be irrelevant.
