Jag XE - reliability - jivemonkey

can anyone advise if they are reliable and how expensive to repair. exploring a more luxurious saloon to replace my Ford mondeo which broke frequently and wondering if this could be good for around 15 to 20k miles a year and likely to run from about 40k to 150k ish. also looking at mazda 6..dont like avensis and passat ok ish

The diesels in both the Jag and the Mazda have a poor reputation. The best bet for longterm reliability would be the Mazda 6 with the 2.0 Skyactiv petrol motor, though I’d be tempted by a petrol XF myself. The diesels I’d forget.

I’d be tempted by a petrol XF myself

I’ve been running a XF 25t Auto (2.0 I4 247bhp petrol) from new for the last 18 months, covering almost 12k miles in that period and hasn’t missed a beat. It’s quiet, wafts the car along nicely (a really excellent 8 speed ZF TC gearbox) and really goes when you want it to. Average MPG is low to mid 30’s so the OP will be frequenting the fuel station on a regular basis.

Get a Toyota or Honda - best for relibaility - imho.

Lexus IS300, 50 mpg and brilliant reliability. Skoda superb with the 1.4 tsinengine is also surprisingly economical and goes well for a big car with a relatively small engine.
