And, your not safe with a new petrol Jag either! They've put an exhaust filter on that now.... So far in 1600 miles from new I've had 3 amber warnings and 1 red (today). With the petrol it only re-gen's below 50mph, low revs for 15 minutes but dont expect 4 warnings 2 months.
The 1600 miles have been a mixture of short journeys and I reckon ~1000+ miles motorway.
Similar problem to the OP. 3.0 diesel XF. Thanks for the help in this post. I rang the warranty people who told me to call out the Jaguar assistance.
Apparently there is a bit of a fault with the flap on the throttle body. It sticks and the air is drawn in via the EGR filling the DPF quickly. He replaced the throttle body, checked the software (it was up to date) and then we went for a run and he checked again. Soot down from 26 grams to 5 grams. Sorted.
Well impressed with Jaguar warranty and Jaguar assistance.
Speaking of which,... My car's about to run out of warranty at 4 years old but only 14k odd miles. Any suggestions about renewing warranty... Jaguar dealer, independent or none?
All suggestions welcome.
