I personally cannot rate Roadbend any higher. Graham, Lisa, Tony, John and staff have been so good to me over the years, I feel like they are family. This is an "Old School" family business where "Your handshake is your Bond", and I can testify to that over and over, ethics, honesty, integrity and morals are what these wonderful people are about. I now live in Queensland and getting time towards my next Jaguar, and I would not look elsewhere, and have never driven the Nullabor yet anyway.... Perths largest Car dealer, John Hughes, another man of great integrity, was one time admiring my previous Jag, he asked me where I bought it, I told him and he too had nothing but praise for Roadbend. So if you are looking at a beautifully presented Jaguar, you cannot go past Roadbend.

Alastair Murray,

I was looking to upgrade my 21 year old XJ40 in May 2009. While searching on the internet I spotted Roadbend Jaguar, then spotted a XJR8 Sports. I made that call and to my surprise I was speaking to a very friendly sales person and later found out that he happen to be the Boss of Roadbend.

I was very impressed with his sales presentation as he was not pushy at all when I took the XJR8 for a test drive. For an 11 year old used car, the interior and the ride smoothness was very good. The following day I decided to purchase it, I was also happy with the smooth change-over deal that Roadbend offered.

Alphonso Soosay,

I'm from Adelaide so I had to trust that Roadbend reciprocated my trust. Graham Percival did. Constant accurate contact during the purchasing process and all information I required was timely. My beautiful 2009 XK X150 arrived in Adelaide and I recommend anyone to sample the service and honest backup that Graham provided. An excellent experience with a reputable Company.
Thankyou Graham and Roadbend.

Hi John, Thank you so much for finding ignition switch for my 1980 XJ6, was great to see that people still care enough about customer service." Anne-Marie

Anne Maree Bryce,

Fantastic bunch of people, professional service, nothing is a problem and they are always helpful anytime. I absolutely love my Jaguar that I purchased from Graham. Very very Happy :-)

Bill Blackhouse,

Roadbend has no equal in the automotive industry. If you are looking for the highest quality used Jaguar, exemplary customer service and first class maintenance of your Jaguar, new or old, quite simply you shouldn't consider going anywhere else. There is nowhere equal to Roadbend, let alone better. I am the proud owner of 8 beautiful Jaguars, most of which have been purchased from Roadbend over the years and all of which are serviced by them to the highest of standards. Graham, Tony, John and the entire Roadbend family can't do enough for their clients; nothing is ever too much trouble. In a world where expediency often takes precedence over service, Roadbend is magnificently anachronistic, providing the type of attention to detail, customer friendliness, reliability and honesty of a bygone era. Match all that with their remarkable knowledge and expertise and you have the Percival Family....and Roadbend Jaguar. Bob Mead

Bob Mead,

We have bought and had our vehicles serviced by Graham, Tony and John at Roadbend for many years. We are contnually amazed by their excellent service, attention to detail and professional approach.


Brian Sullivan,

Thanks again for the wonderful service you gave us on Saturday, I hate buying and selling cars and you made us both feel very relaxed and certainly never at any stage did we feel under pressure. We will certainly recommend your company to our friends. Chaz McVeigh

Chaz Mcveigh,

Extremely helpful in every situation. First class business.

Darren White,

HI Graham, I would just like to say how pleased I am with the service I received from your company. We needed a front crank seal for our 1983 XJ6 and not only did you have the part in stock but it arrived today in the mail as your service man John said it would. We have just started a limousine service and the XJ6 is our shretch limo therefore the flagship of our business. Thankyou again for your excellent service. We will definately be return customers.

Darryl Anderson,

Hi Graham
Just want to thank you for your assitance with my purchase of the XF and thank your staff who prepared the car for sale
It was a pleasure doing business with you and hope to continue using your company for the onging servicing in the future

Dave Fox,

Graham, I would like to personally thank you for not only your professional assistance but your personal warmth and friendliness to my wife(Linda). She was not really interested in any vehicle, but what changed her mind was your manner towards her and how you presented the car.

It’s really hard for me to be up here in Kalgoorlie, and especially not physically seeing the car made it near impossible for me to try and convince Linda that this is a really nice car.  Thanks mate you did an awesome job, and the way the car was presented with all the little presents made it so much more than just buying a car, it was an experience for Linda that she absolutely loves.  She is totally loving the prestige and the absolute comfort of the car.
So I want to thank you personally for your extended effort in selling this car to my family.

Dave Thomasz,

Hi Graham, Just wanted to drop you a line to thankyou for selling me a magnificent Jag. It is like a new car and a pleasure to drive. Also I had exceptional after sales service from Tony.
Dealing with a family business that takes pride in its work shows through at all points of contact. You should be very proud of the team.Thanks again for finding me the perfect car for my needs.


Tony, I wanted to say thanks for doing such a fantastic job on my X type. I really appreciate the care and excellence that went into the service and the freshen-up. Feels, looks, and smells like new. I'm a happy customer and you've got a long term client. Pls pass my personal thanks to all on your team that contributed.

David Bradley,

Thanks very Graham

Great service and you have a won me over. You have another Roadbend customer for life. David Drake

David Drake,

Just wanted to say that I am over the moon with the Jaguar and to thank you again for the wonderful and friendly service offered by Roadbend motors. I have just returned from a week touring the South West of WA – it was a dream to drive!!


Gary Holton,

Thanks very much for the wine and bits of bobs that came with the purchase, unexpected and much appreciated. The presentation of the car was exceptional, and I’m enjoying it already.
As always, it has been a pleasure dealing with you.


Hi John I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated all of the great work you've done, nothing is too much trouble and you always come up with a solution for me. I have and will continue to recommend "Roadbend Motors" to anyone who needs great service, excellent knowledgable advise on Jaguar parts or Car sales.


Geoffrey Wyman 2001 XJR,

I was very happy with the service you provide.  I know you’re the managing director so it was great that you personally helped us out, especially considering that you had a pre-arranged appointment.  I didn’t feel rushed or pressured at all and even though it is a second hand vehicle I still felt like I was being sold a new one!


Everything is going very well with the vehicle although the wife is not keen on sharing it she loves driving it so much. Will have to put some noisy mud tyres on it soon so she is less inclined to drive it!



Graham, a genuine thank you to you and your family for the outstanding way I've been treated and served over the past weeks, as you paved the way for a smooth transition from my old car to my new Jaguar!! My new car is everything i hoped for and more. As you indicated , the hand picked vehicle is reliable, efficient and exciting to drive. What more can i say Graham other than I've enjoyed the buying experience and now I'm enjoying the experience as you said i would of owning and driving a Roadbend prepared Jagaur!! Thanks guys. All the best and where i can recommend you all i will.


Tony and his staff are fantastic and honourable, every time I needed parts they have been most helpful and friendly. A pleasure to do business with.

Greg Joseph,

I have used Roadbend Jaguar for over 10 years now for all my Jaguar needs as I have ventured up the Jaguar range of cars. Today I am privilaged to own a 1972 E-Type V12 which I would only ever trust Tony Percival with. Knowledge is everything when it comes to a 40 year old car and the percival brothers have it in spades. Thanks Guys keep up the good work.


The car is beautiful and I look forward to a long and happy association with “Roadbend”.


John Graham,

Thank-you. After traipsing all over the globe by phone and email, I was delighted to discover that Roadbend had the rare gearbox parts I needed to get my beloved S3 manual back on the road. Thank you, both for the prompt service and for the quirk of fate that inspired someone there to order these particular bits in 6 years ago! Regards Julian Whitta

Julian Whitta,

Thanks Tony, for your customer service during our purchase of our first Jaguar XT together. Glenn can't stop smiling, everytime he walks past it he gives it a buff-up.

Julie Goss,

Hello Graham,

The XK8 is going great guns. Driving it to Sydney and back recently was a real pleasure. I have never driven with 20" wheels and fat "rubber band" tyres that absorb our roads so comfortably.  In fact for touring, the XK8 stands up well in comparison with my other Jaguar - one of the last 2.7L TTD S-Type Luxury.  My equally immaculate S-Type rides on 18" Mercurys, and to my mind, this is the finest touring saloon that Jaguar made. Ever!  But nothing, nowhere, boils the blood and turns heads like the XK8/XKR.
Given that I would never afford an XKR . . .
. . . and that this XK8 is so immaculate . . .
I feel like I have won the lottery every time I sit behind the wheel.
Thank you, Jaguar & Roadbend, for that feeling! Thank you, Graham, for honouring so brilliantly, my leap of faith in purchasing by correspondence from so far away. In return, I sing your praises where'ere I go!

Kind regards,


I can highly recommend Graham from Roadbend Motors for his friendly, patient and very professional service. Graham went out of his way to find the right car for me. He listens to your requirements and has a thorough knowledge of the cars he deals with. All the staff at the showroom were always polite and very friendly. It was always a pleasure to visit the showroom. Thanks very much. Lesley


Graham we are very happy, she drove home yesterday afternoon smoothly and comfortably as expected. Many thanks for the smooth and professional changeover, we look forward to a long and happy relationship with Roadbend.


Graham and Tony's passion for Jaguar and customer service are second to none. The sales process was a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The service department is well run and very helpful. Far superior to my last experience of buying a jag.


I purchased a beautiful Jaguar XJ6 1996 from Roadbend in June 2017. It was in immaculate condition inside and out, with low kilometers and a full service history. The car was recently serviced by Roadbend with no issues at all. I also own a Jaguar X type, that was restored by Roadbend with exceptional attention to detail, including body-work, seat upholstery and wood and leather steering wheel, all restored to new. The quality of both cars is a testament to the legendary reputation of Roadbend, who sell the finest cars and provide the best customer service I’ve experienced in over 20 years of driving. Thank you!!

Mel Thomas,

Dear Tony, Graham, John and Lisa, thank you for your outstanding customer service in selling me a beautiful and immaculate Jaguar xj6. It seems to make all other cars I've had pale into insignificance. Thank you also for restoring my X type over the past six months with such enthusiasm, dedication and craftsmanship. Happy 50th Anniversary!
Warm regards

Melville Thomas,

I wish to express my sincere thanks for your good service on Saturday and frank advice for my car. These days, many are in business for “quick profit” and lack integrity. It is always a pleasure to deal with honest operators with emphasis on company’s credibility. Meng wong

Meng Wong,

Many thanks for the personalized attention while the quality maintenance and service was carried out on my car, and sorting out the warranty, as well as for the convenience of a quality replacement car once again. When I received my car back it drove so much quieter, smoother and with much more power. I actually appreciate and enjoy driving it so much more then before. Its amazing how much better a specialist mechanic is.  Keep up the old fashion quality service.

Michael Manios,

Tony, John, Graham & Team, Lynnette & I just wanted to say a huge thank you for putting on the JCCWA evening last night. Apart from being amazed & frightened that yet another year has flown by, we always look forward to the Roadbend evening. Each year you remind us of the very best aspects of our own family dealership back in NZ. Once again, thanks very much & we hope to be able to repay your hospitality with some significant business at some time in the future.

Neale & Lynnette,

This is our 5th Road Bend Jaguar. We always come back to Graham and the boys because we can't put a price on the value of the service. The cars are always competitively priced and presented to the highest standards but it doesn't end when you drive out of the gate. Nothing is too much trouble and their after care and servicing is 2nd to none. We would certainly recommend Road Bend to anyone wanting a fabulous Jaguar. 50 years in business says it all, congratulations to the Percival's on this fantastic milestone. Michael and Pamela Grabau

Pamela Grabau,

Hi Graham, I'm very happy with the car and I wanted to thank you for handling the changeover so smoothly for me and also a pleasant surprise was the tankful of petrol. Keep up the good work. Phil

Phil Vile,

THE only guys in Perth that diagnosed and FIXED my 2006 X Type with only 75,000 kms on the clock .... at a fraction of the other quotes. In FACT every other service place in Perth and North of the state told me to throw the car away as any repair would cost more than the car was worth! They were all wrong! Thanks Roadbend for your dedication, professionalism and quality of service.

Rebecca Cameron,

Just wanted to say thanks for the great service over the years. The whole team has been great and it’s been a pleasure dealing with you and the guys!


Thanks for the last six years of association and care of "the best car of my life" you guys ( tony, your family and staff ) are genuinely good people.


Thank you for the advice and the Roadbend welcoming experience in purchasing my first Jaguar, the lovely Solent Blue XJ6 XJ40 Sovereign. I have driven the car every day, including the commute to and from work. I am adjusting my driving style and becoming accustomed/familiar with the car plus the controls.  A very smooth ride, be it raining or extremely brisk outside.


Thank you for Jaguar S Type R. It’s a car that has been dreamed about for a long time and to now have one, is just brilliant. As with previous purchases, Roadbend’s delivery was beyond excellent, the car immaculate, and the atmosphere electric with excitement of taking the new toy home. Roadbends timing was impeccable, to have such a rare vehicle, just as our hunt began, was perfect timing and fortunate for us!  Graham, Lisa, Tony and John, and entire team, a big “Thank you” for making my latest purchase such a wonderful pleasure and enjoyable experience. 

I must say Thankyou for the test drives of so many beautiful and tempting vehicles, if the garage were only a little bigger!!
I look forward to many more cars, dreams and dealings with Roadbend in the future.


Steve Mclaughlin,

Have enjoyed 30+ years of fair & friendly service from this unique family run business. As Arnie Schwarzenegger would say, "i'll be back" :)

Steve Tozer,

After my first visit with my X Type today, I came away impressed with the service and genuine interest in your vehicle. I've had the car only 3 weeks and I will be back! Cheers!

Stuart Yabsley,

Hi Tony
