New IS250 owner after nightmares with Jaguar, Mercedes etc

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Thought I’d introduce myself. 

Most recently I’d owned a Jaguar XFS Portfolio 2014 model. A few weeks into ownership I began to notice massive corner cutting in quality, fit and finish. 

Poor paint, and poor materials. If you looked at it wrong the paint would scratch. 

The service from the dealer was shocking. Twice in a few months I had to take it in and on both occasions they gave it back to me with damage done to the car!

After owning it for 3 months I sold it. Completely over rated brand. 

I knew then I did not want a German car or another Jaguar. I began looking at Lexus.

One popped up with the colour combination I was looking for, silver with black leather. 25k on the clock and FLSH. 2008 SE-L.

I love it. I can see the quality and attention to detail everywhere. This is so much appreciated to see.

There are things I need to do to get it up to my standard (previous Mercedes concourse winner) and I’m doing that.

So far it’s a solid car. Extremely solid with high quality materials.

Its wonderful in comparison to the other brands I have had. 

Thankyou to all those who have helped me so far it’s really appreciated.

 

Zak

2008 and only 25,000 miles! - that sounds like a rare find 🙂

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
