My oil pan began leaking at 32,000 miles and even though all oil changes were done by the dealer they chose to not disclose this problem. A problem like this should have prompted a recall especially when it involved 9 hours of labor. Since the leakage was slight and the engine oil level was not reduced it was overlooked. The dealer service department had to have noticed while making the oil changes that oil was splattered so this indicates the ethics of Jaguar dealers.
My check engine light has been on for a while now, so I took car to jaguar ,when I got my estimate of all the things wrong it was 10,000 Drs I laughed. The car started to shake while steering, that's all I wanted them to check. I had breather hoses etc have holes, engine oil leaking slowly,needed to clean brake fluids,needed rear and front sway bars, need windshield wiper blade, mind u I just replaced, I also needs both cracked headlight s with bulbs which all I needed was a bulb eBay 12 Drs, the list went on. I did my research and told them to just fix the breather hoses and walk problem solved , I still need 92 censor ,sway bars, they also said I needed tires and alignment ,for which I also had done before I took car there. I do have a small oil leak from the gasket, but I never have to put oil in between oil changes. Jaguar is the biggest ripoff ....don't go, but I'm slowly fixing everything that's I need ,but my car runs great... So beware all these things go wrong with this car.
Dealer recommended a new seal for about $1200

Think I will just check the oil level regualarly
