Here is the latest and final update on our claim against Jaguar Cars for our 2008 Jaguar XJ Sovereign 2.7 TDVI Diesel with a broken crankshaft.
After a long drawn out exchange of rude and arrogant letters from the Jaguar Main dealerships solicitors and by standing up for our rights under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 we have finally won our claim and received a payment of 7500, this was more than we expected so we are very happy with the result.
The strange thing is that after speaking to a Jaguar specialist about repairing our engine they felt that the main dealer could have done the job like we asked for less.

A lot of pain but well done!

About $10000 I suppose.

Is this a common fault with the XJ 2.7 as that was the model i'd set my mind on ?

It's not uncommon. Since the petrol versions are pretty well bulletproof, and so much nicer to drive, you might want to consider one of those.
If running costs are your concern, buy a 3.0 litre petrol model; the overall fuel consumption is much the same as the 2.7 diesel, it's far more refined, quicker, infinitely more reliable, and less expensive to service.

Yeah mpg was or is a big factor due to the reason why I'm getting a Jag, as I'm no longer working & I'm using most of my savings to buy it, so after I've got it money will be a bit tighter or I'd buy an XJR & some of the things on my bucket list along with the Jag is traveling so at times I will doing a fair bit of distance, but probably 95% will be short journeys round Oxfordshire, which after reading about the 2.7 isn't the best environment for it, so I'll have to have a rethink, but if I'm going down the petrol route it'll more than likely be a 4.2.

To all Harbinger's of doom. The XJ is back with a new lowrider stance, had the crankshaft replaced and the 2.7 TDVI engine rebuilt, its now had its first 500 mile service and is running well. Thanks for those that supported me.
