Subframe corrosion

Postby [email protected] » Sun Mar 24, 2019 4:14 pm

I have an XE 20/250 AWD (MAY18) , and have just bought a second hand (1 owner, regularly servied by the same garage etc) F Type V6 340.

To my dismay I have read rports of subframe corrosion (sic) and wondered if there are any such problems with the XE ?

Many thanks, and if I have missed the thread concerned, my apologies.

Thus far, no reports of XE subframe rusting have emerged. That said, several of Jaguar's recent models have been shown to have pretty marginal finishes on their subframe components. If you intend to keep the car long term, it would be only sensible to check underneath occasionally and ensure any initial surface rusting is treated early to hold it at bay. Mike.
