Jaguar Offers Free Maintenance to New Customers

September 22nd, 2015 by

2016 Jaguar XFThings just got a little better for Jaguar car owners because the vehicles are getting more affordable thanks to two key changes that the car company is making to its lineup. Now the cars are more affordable, and they come with free maintenance as well. These improvements come just after a minor dip in sales to the Jaguar brand. Car purchases dropped down a slight 4.4 percent throughout August, but these improvements are likely to alter that a bit.

The Details

Jaguar plans to lower it’s 2016 model prices by between $1,500 and $3,000 making the vehicles slightly more affordable, though the difference isn’t something that will suddenly create a surge of new customers or keep it out of luxury car price ranges. The vehicle is also going to come with a car warranty known as EliteCare that’s pretty comprehensive and cuts maintenance tasks out of the picture.

The EliteCare Warranty

The warranty offers free scheduled maintenance for vehicle owners for the first five years or 60,000 miles. The warranty will make keeping the vehicle in top condition much easier to do, but they won’t cover parts that wear out quickly such as tires and brake pads. The maintenance package also comes with a free roadside assistance program and a phone app that lets car owners monitor their vehicles more closely and perform actions such as locking and unlocking doors using their smartphone for convenience.

Launching Option Packages

Another improvement that Jaguar is offering to its customers is a set of option packages that are universal between all the different models. Now each vehicle will have a premium, prestige and R-Sport package available. The different packages include different sets of features and getting the level of luxury that you want is now as simple as picking the appropriate level. It greatly simplifies the ordering process and will make it easier for Jaguar buyers to pick out an ideal vehicle without pouring over every single feature that they want.

It’s hard to say whether these new incentives will encourage more people to shop for a Jaguar, but they’re certainly nice and should help lower the cost of owning a Jaguar considerably. Anyone crunching the numbers will see that the new and improved maintenance warranty is a real value.
