2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: First Service -- A Bit Early
July 13, 2012
I took the XF in for an oil change yesterday at 2,217 miles. That's early even for us. But an early oil change is protocol for us now given the heavy service our cars see.
I visited Anaheim Hills Jaguar in -- you guessed it -- Anaheim Hills for the first time and was neither impressed nor annoyed by the service. My service writer told me the XF wasn't due for service yet and didn't try to upsell me in any way. In fact, it seemed utterly routine when he set down the $225 estimate for the service and parts. I signed the paperwork and headed home.
A few hours later I got the call that the car was done and was being washed. Here's how it broke down:
- Labor @ $130/hour: $65.00
- 9 quarts Castrol SLX 5W20:$99.00
- C2D3760 oil filter: $34.62
- Hazardous waste fee: $4.68
- Tax: $10.36
