Not that I can recall from the forum. Make sure to tell the dealership to thoroughly dry the area that was soaked, wouldn't want moisture to just sit there.
That's actually a pretty darn good deal. Smart to get the extended warranty instead of the two payments as well, it's far more valuable and will prove much more helpful down the line. That's probably one of the only cases where I would definitely feel inclined to urge people to go see them as they're some real stand up guys at Manhattan JLR.Yeah so Jaguar rejected the replacement since it wasn't 3 times but Manhattan JLR said they would make good on it and eat the cost for me and then they would go after the dealer that messed it up twice.
Apparently the work was so bad at Paul Miller Jag in Madison NJ that they took pics and immediately sent it to Jaguar USA. Jag was going to go after them for reimbursement.
Anyway, I would have had to start a new finance for the same car. I asked what if I took it back cuz Manhattan said they tested extensively etc. I really didn't want to lose the 6 months I paid in.
So they said well you take it back if it happens again Jaguar has to replace it no questions asked and I don't start fresh on a finance.
Jag offered to pay two payments I said no, if I take it back I want extended warranty forget the payments.
They agreed. So I took the chance and took the car back. Not a drop in it since. The fact Manhattan was going to eat the cost showed me they were a really upstanding crew so I said you know what, I don't want them to eat the cost cuz Paul miller sucked. If it happens again I get a new one.
It's been a few months and everything has been good.
So anyone reading this in the NY NJ area and want a Jag, go see Roman at Manhattan JLR. He's the man.
Hopefully you get yours taken care of soon. It's definitely fixable. They got it right on mine.
I have a feeling that come time for people to ask about what to look for in used XE's, that will be one of them. Went in a few cars with that smell (other car makers) and its hard to get the smell out. Even some detailers can't get it out. With so many XE's out its easy to pivot to the next.The issue with this problem is the absence of outer door seals. You will find that after driving in the rain that there is quite a 'tide mark' of muck inside the door sills where the spray is forced in along the lower door edge. Once in it does not easily drain out. Therefore the water tight integrity is relying on the one and only door seal which is very easily damaged by scrapes or compromised by other muck getting trapped between the door seal and the door opening seal. The B pillar is particularly vulnerable. Moral of the story, have these seals renewed at every service or risk having the inside smell like a swamp !
