Warranty problem
2005 Jaguar X-Type 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 43.200 miles

Bought car 08/13/09 with 37, 700 miles and extended warranty. In 03/12/10, dealer invites me for free oil change and then tells me car needs
$784.00 in servicing:
- replace windshield wipers;
- clean battery terminals and cable connections;
- front wheel alignment;
- check front suspension;
- replace air & pollen filters;
- relplace fuel filter & filter fuel; and
- fuel emission service, clean fuel injectors & intake
system of carbon.

I can understand that maybe front wheel alignment off from hitting pot-holes, but was all other work necessary after only 6 mos. Of purchase and 6,000 miles of driving?

Also, since purchase, had to bring for service for following:
- driver side front lens loose & replaced;
- jammed L/R door latch and cable parts
replaced;
- replace front door glass channel rubber; and
- parking light P/S not working.
These serviced for free, but shouldn't they have been checked prior to purchase?

Also, now my bright lights sometimes turn-on when I turn-off ignition & deaqler telling me I'm depressing the "panic button" on key while turning-off ignition.
I tried depressing each button on key while turning-off & that not the problem.

Am I being paranoid and picky or are these guy lame?

Alot of services are performed accroding to mileage. When they sold you the car it was under 40k, so they probably didnt do the 40k service which would most likely includes the things they are quoting you on now. Dosnt seem like good business with a car that close and being sold at a dealership, other than to get you back to spend more. Since it has an extended warranty, I would find another Jag dealer to do business with, and let the service manager know why you are taking your business elsewhere
