This is my favorite car
I sought this car out when I bought it. Visited the dealer several times before getting the right deal at the end of 2010. I have owned this car for 7 years now, much longer than I usually keep my cars. I was expecting more problems when I bought it given Jaguars past, but surprisingly I had had no problems with my car and still love driving it. With 385hp, and the engine growl i feel like it can beat most anything on the road.
Finally got my Jag
I've always wanted to own a Jaguar. I did a LOT of research on cars.com which lead me to this beautiful, low mileage car. My face hurts from smiling. Thank You cars.com
5.0L Supercharged. Wow, just wow
I only ding it slightly on comfort because there is little room left behind the driver seat when it's adjusted for me. I'm 6'1", which is relatively average and I'd have thought there would be more legroom in the backseat given it's a sedan.
Supercharged = hot and sexy style / performance
First the obvious -- *Jaguar sublime leather (everything) *Awesome stereo *The perfect JAG exhaust sound like a big cat roar! *Perfect sexy and hot exterior styling that everyone loves! (get ready for conversations from strangers) Now the not so obvious and not so great --- * early models have leather dash that shrinks and pulls back which is a $3000.00 fix or a 35 dollar suede dash cover * battery (original) goes out within 2-3 years, but aftermarkets last forever it seems * at brake time - get cross-drilled rotors and have a blast with better brakes * the 'ghost lights' play tricks with you - these are the 3 lights in the front roof section that are touch enabled, but eventually are ghost enabled - thank old Jaguar electronic ghosts from the past * keep it in 'dynamic mode' and blow away anyone on the road save for cars costing 3 times as much * at 120 mph and above, the Jaguar purrs perfectly down the freeway * the pop up rotary gear selector makes all other cars look ancient
Great Car for your Money

Lots of fun, great ride, great long range cruiser! The car you get for the money is hard to beat!!!!
Seats in our 2003 R Model are more comfortable
Seats in our 2010 XF Supercharged Jaguar lack the side support and overall aadjustments that came standard on our 2003 S-Type R. Bean counter mentality is to be expected GM products, but has no place in deciding comfort and safety issues in a car with 470 HP and far more torque (2010 XFS vs 2003 S-type R). Otherwise, the 2010 XF-S is far superior in every way than most every car in its' price range. Keep it up, Mr. Callum
2010 XF has been a blast
Have owned the car for only one month and have really enjoyed it. First week we had it took a 1250 mile trip and averaged 26.6 miles to the gal, pretty impressive for a rather large engine. In the city it is averaging 20.2 per gallon according to the on board computer. Handled great on the trip and was an extremely comfortable ride, a great road car. Have owned 2 other s-types and had great luck with those cars, but this XF stands head and shoulders above the older design. While the rising knob transmission selector and rotating heating vents that open upon ignition are kinda wacky the overall clean interior is beautifly appointed. Also drove in a 6 inch snow storm and it handled very well with the winter drive selection engaged. Tracked very well for a rear wheel drive when others were sliding around, very impressive. We did have a problem with the touch screen radio the day we purchased the car and an a couple led tail lights were burnt outl. Dealer fixed both issues plus performed a couple programed changes in the computer that were done. All issues were fixed in a day and covered under warranty at no charge.
Most compliments for looks and styling I've
The XF is in it own class as far a appearance , handling, stability and response.It is quiet some minimal road noise, but no wind or air sounds Love the car is fast and very responsive to pick-up and braking. Looks great on and off road .
After nearly 2 years I still love the way the XF looks and the way it drives. Turns heads since this vehicle is much rarer than the BMWs and Mercedes and Audis it competes with. And it has fantastic power and crisp handling. I have had a 2 computer module problems that required replacing, but those were covered in full by the Jaguar warranty and completed in 1 day each. I like that oil changes are only required after 1 yr or 15K mi. Dealer service experience has been good (which is to say, very seldom). I intended to use the XF as a commuting car but it is surprisingly roomy for my family of 4. So we use it for all kinds of trips. Only problem is my wife who keeps telling me to SLOW DOWN!
