2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Rear Brake Pad Replacement

June 5, 2013

2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged

Just as it's about to leave our care for good, our 2012 Jaguar XF began to intermittently display a brake pad warning light. Though it came and went for a few days, we took the car into the Jaguar store in Anaheim Hills, Calif. Our experience was good.

Service writer Jay Kauffman was quick in checking in the XF for an 8:00 a.m. appointment and called us a few hours later to tell us the news: Sure enough, the XF needed new rear pads. We OK'd the service and by midafternoon Jay called again to tell us the car was being washed and would be ready soon.

All told, we are into the rear brakes for $507.72. The breakdown came out to $268.72 for the pads, a sensor and a "brake kit" which amounts to a few springs. Labor was $217.50 and tax was $21.50.

And when we picked up the Jaguar XF it was clean and ready to go. Overall, the service experience was good. Yes, it was expensive. So is the car.

It's also worth it.
