2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Locked Fuel Door
February 11, 2013
The fuel door on the right side of the Jaguar XF is one of those push-it-to-pop-it-open types. But it won't open if the car is locked. It only pops open if you have pressed the unlock button on the keyfob.
I only notice these types of security issues because I grew up in a neighborhood where people fought over parking spots as if the sidewalk was their personal property. Some of the crazies would actually put sugar in your gas tank if you parked in front of their house.
It didn't help that my family had four cars. So, even though I am a long way from that old neighborhood, I appreciate the added security of a locked fuel door. Go, Philly.
