Dudded on service

Asked by Peter Hanson

IN DECEMBER 2003 I bought an ex-demo Jaguar S-Type I was led to believe was a few months old. I was told to bring it in for its first service in 12 months' time. So I had it serviced in December 2004, but when I arrived I was asked why I hadn't had it serviced before. I discovered it had been put on the road in October 2002 and should have been serviced two months before I bought it. Will it have been damaged by not being serviced for 26 months?

I BELIEVE in servicing cars to keep them in good fettle, but I wouldn't think your car has sustained any damage because the first service was missed. If it is running well, I would feel comfortable that it hasn't been damaged. I would, however, have stern words with the salesman who obviously misled you, probably because he was too lazy to check the car's service records before advising you when it should next be serviced.
