Hello everyone - Hope this is in the right place
Thanks for creating this awesome forum and meeting the wonderful people here. I am looking to get a 2017 Jaguar XF vehicle and I am looking to the community to check if there is anything I should be looking out for while doing my inspection.

Things I will be looking out for are
coolant or oil leads
Weird noises coming from the engine
check the transmission for slips and jolt
verify all the electronics are working properly

The asking price is $27,500 and it has 9000 miles with a Salvage Title.

If you guys have any suggestions on what to check.
Looking forward to joining this family, thanks

Parked in the usual Jag fashion.
( unless the chassis is crabbing, a lot)
I assume salvage title is a previous insurance write off.
In that case, I'd be making sure that everything is straight/aligned correctly.

Edit

What was the nature or the reason for the title?

If you know the reason for the write-off, the history of it and the subsequent repairs, preferably with pre and post photographs, they can be a bargain. Or a death trap if you don't.... or a money pit.... But of course resale will be less when it's time to move it on.

I have owned 2 Cat D cars, both of which I kept for several years and never had a problem with either, and you would never know to look at them they were accident repaired cars.

Except for the front and rear bonnets etc.

My Lotus Elan SE Turbo was a cat D write off, that was simply a stolen recovered car very early in its life, no damage when found but the insurance had paid out before it was recovered. Subsequently sold by the insurance company with a write off title.
