2010 Supercharged XF
This Jaguar was a complete surprise to me, I would have never considered the brand until the XF. After comparing it to the BMW 550 Mercedes 550 I choose the XF Supercharged and have no regrets. Awesome power, elegant looks in & out, and comfort all in a modern, well built machine.
I have had this car for 3 months. Fastest car I've ever owned. My last car was a 335xi (BMW)- this is much faster. I drove it for the 1st time in snow today and it did admirably.
Great Exterior Design,Poor Quality & Reliability
I test drove a 2010 XF about a year ago and it felt solid and drove well. I was impressed. I decided to take out a 4 year lease. Little did I know the problems that await less than a week later. From the check engine light to squeaks and rattles, this car has been a nightmare to own. In the first 2 months it spent 40 days in the shop. It is not "screwed and glued" together well at all. Now after almost a year I can truly say it is the worst car I've ever owned. Jaguar USA was no help. I felt completely helpless after talking to them. The car just sits in the garage, rarely driven because I'm not sure what will break next, additionally, squeaks and rattles still run ramped depending on how the car "feels" that day. It is so beautiful to look at, which is what seduced me into buying it, it looks like a work of art. I finally contacted the dealer one final time and pleaded with them to take the car back, they agreed. Now I can't wait, because I will be turning it in 3 years early and paying over 4000 bucks to do so, and never looking back. It's sad when a customer would rather dip into their savings to get rid of a car than keep it throughout the lease term. With the well known history of Jag's poor quality and reliability I don't think they?ve learned from their mistakes. I thought I would take a chance, because of all the good things I read and heard, but I will definitely be avoiding them in the future. I'm glad others have been more lucky with theirs, but I'll still laugh to myself when passing them thinking about the time I spent with my Jag, and how the beauty of the design and the test drive suckered me into buying one and wondering if they feel the same.
Power and style
The XF looks sharp from all angles. Inside, the car is luxurious and mixes modern hi-tech touches with classic and high-quality leather and wood. The ride is firm, the braking is quick and the steering is crisp. But the 385 hp V8 power is what you really notice - - very powerful. Not a single mechanical or fit/finish problem either. Very pleased with my first Jaguar.
2010 Jag XF Premium
Only had the car for one month, but am enjoying it greatly so far... Great acceleration, cornering ability, and ride quality. I am averaging 17 MPG in the city and 27 in highway driving. The only negative is a slightly cramped back seat -- apart from that, a very enjoyable automobile...
satisfation for money
I just made the swicth from BMW550i to the Jaguar XF and I feel accomplished. The ride is smooth and you get value for your money's worth. I think I'm gonna keep this baby for a while longer than the BMW.
