Cheers for the replies guys!
The Jaguar was bought as the price was right, I like the cars and enjoy the prestige of it.
I don't have a particularly heavy foot. I use a tracker box on my insurance and have for the last Three years.
My Mondeos died due too my 1.8 having a faulty oil light. Basically it dropped it all on some Gravel and I didn't notice until 5m later and it decided the next day too drop a crank bearing.
The 2.0 died I have no idea how.. I turned off the engine picking up a co-worker. Restarted it and it snapped a rod according too my local garage who have pulled the engine apart. Not been able too go and see it yet.
I have been using Mondeos for a while now and economy on my 1.8 was around 35 combined but the 2.0 is a genuine 22 combined average. It was an automatic however, this is all I can pin the lack of economy down too. Putting out £250 a week in Petrol is crippling me so I decided a new car was in order.
AWD was an essential factor as I live just off of Woodhead and as some of you will know there is a lot of snow up here.
It'll be doing alot of Motorway miles down the M62 corridor as my Family are in Liverpool and work send me too Hull every few weeks, aswell as many other places inbetween.
I've avoided Diesels as I know many people who have problems with them. Also I don't like that you see alot of TDCi's that are coughing out ALOT of smoke even brand new ones.
