Jaguar Extends Scheduled Maintenance on 2016 Models
Jaguars are beautiful machines, but they have a high price tag and can be expensive to maintain. Fortunately for all Jaguar owners, the company took heed and lowered their prices as well as rolled out free scheduled maintenance in the US.
The 2016 model features the free EliteCare 5-year/60,000-mile scheduled maintenance warranty. That plus a $1,500 to $3,000 lower price tag should make “all models significantly more affordable,” Joe Eberhardt, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America told Automotive News about the new savings.
Those savings also come with improved equipment levels of 10 to 20 percent, so you are getting more value for less money.
Better Costs, Better Positioning
The new approach helps the company be better “positioned at the heart depending on how you do the price comparison,” Eberhardt said. “Directionally, we are below all the Germans and we are par or slightly above the Asia or domestic competitors.”
The new Jaguar scheduled maintenance plans are 1 year and 10,000 miles longer than plans offered by BMW and Cadillac. The catch is that the warranty can’t be transferred to a second owner. It also doesn’t cover brakes, wipers or other wear and tear parts. By at 5 years for 60,000 miles, who can really complain?
