    My car

    had my XF foe nearly 3 years, i still look forward to every driving minute, for a big car it feels nimble and agile, and even with the 2.7d has a fair bit of up and go !

    the fuel consumption for a car this big and this much poke still amazes me. i get a min of 35mpg and thats driving it full on when get chance , my wife fiat 500 in town does 36 mpg .

    its the sort of car that make you wish we had toll roads, with higher speed limits, as it a great long distance high speed cruiser , and with 40 mpg at 100 mph and a 75 litre tank you can get anywhere quickly.

    The sat nav is the best on the market and is easy to use, the BW stereo upgrade is the best option you can choose.

    The "thunderbirds are go ! " when you press the start button brings back the inner child all people have somewhere.

    The seats are amazing, ( after 15 years of saabs i was used to comfort ) . i have spent 8 hours at the wheel and feel fine.

    The dealers dont make you feel they are doing you a favour ( ALFA, AUDI. BMW, Porsche take note) by letting you have a 15 min test drive, whilst trying to sell you their stock spec cars.

    The service depts pay attention to detail, and dont try yo extract as much cash as possible from you

    The only down sides are the lack of 4wd so in the snow its best left at home,

    My car

    I have owned my Jaguar for 10 weeks of which 5 weeks the car has been off the road! I like many new owners looked for something different to my usual allegience to the German brands and frankly wish I hadn't bothered! how they score so well on JD and magazine reviews stagger me! I have had 1 demo and 2 loan XF's and my own and not one has been rattle free - the build quality is simply disgraceful for a car that costs this much and something I have never experienced with the German brands! Also, mine has a fault(vibration at speed under braking) that can't be fixed and has been referred again to Jaguar HQ - sadly for me owning the new plate has meant driving none stop loan vehicles on older plates! Jaguar for me have done little to nothing to help - they don't call or keep you up to date and seem to think it is acceptable to leave customers wondering what is happening with their £40k investment! The centre console heats up to the point it is like a radiator but guess what its a 'quirk' of the XF that all do! AKA bad engineering! The seats are not comfy on long journeys and the stereo is rubbish! I had a merc C class sport before this which totally puts this car to shame in all areas! You will be impressed with a test drive but trust me test it for a LONG time and you will save yourself from a big mistake that sadly I made!

    My car

    I previously gave a review last October, and everything I said then still stands. But.........and it's a biggie.....the drivers seat became intolerably uncomfortable to the point where I could no longer drive it for more than 15 mins without serious pain in the outside right side of my thigh. The dealer, who's sales staff had previously been so helpful? Well, their service rep I spoke to was far less interested. So, potentially a great car ruined in my case because I couldn't use it for the purpose intended.....driving. I have met a few other tall people complaining of the same issue. So, sold it having done 14k miles in less than a year, and it's a shame because I so wanted this to be a great (British) car......but it just wasn't in the end. Is yours going to be ok?

    My car

    I have owned my XF for only 130 days & it has been back at the dealers 11 times & off the road 41 days. The last visit was on December 8th & they didn't return the car to me until January 9th still with faults.The computer brain of the car & sunroof replaced,trim rattles looked at, fuel filler unit replaced because it refuses to open when you need to fill up. Far to many electrical problems to list & AGAIN Taunton Jaguar could not fix them When driving in rain water builds up right where you will look into the rear view mirrors. The water forms a whirl pool & does not leave the window so when changing lanes on motorway your vision is blocked by water build up. This car seems to have been rushed onto the market place without full testing & is poorly built I have now had 3 Jaguars & the first 2 were perfect so after seeing the reviews we brought the XF with only an hour's test drive which now looking back was an expensive mistake. I have tried to reject the car but the dealership & Jaguar cars seem to think the problems I have with this car are just minor & I quote from the dealers letter 'the courts accept many cars have defects on delivery' Jaguar Cars LTD themselves just pass the buck onto the dealers. To conclude the XF looks great but has far to many major design flaws to justify £42K so AVOID THIS POOR CAR
