XF "GREATEST SEDAN EVER MADE"

I'VE OWNED THEM ALL, I'VE DRIVEN THEM ALL. THE XF IS BY FAR THE BEST SPORTS SEDAN I'VE HAD THE PLEASURE OF PARKING IN MY GARAGE. THIS NEW JAGUAR PUTS EVERY BMW AND MERCEDES I'VE HAD, TO SHAME. THE STEERING IS LIGHT AND PORSCHE LIKE, BUT DOESN'T BEAT YOU UP. THE RIDE IS MORE ENGAGING THAN MY BENTLEY, BUT SMOOTHER THAN ANY GERMAN CAR, IN ALL THE RIGHT WAYS. I'VE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT AND EVERYTHING WORKS AS ADVERTISED. LOVE IT!!!

I took delivery of my new XF this weekend and what an incredible car. Without any doubt this car goes beyond my wildest expectations. The performance, the feel and smell of real leather and wood, the obvious luxury feel, makes this the best of the twenty or so cars I have ever owned. All you German and Japanese auto manufacturers have a long way to go before you can even mention your cars in the same sentence as Jaguar. Jaguar have just made me a customer for life!!

Reborn Classic

Tatar has proven it can build first rate vehicles. Wonderful redesign of a classic car. My wife and I love it. We have to chuckle when our "out of date" friends ask why we down stepped from a BMW to a Ford. We just tell them we sidestepped to a Jag. If you haven't driven one of these cars, do yourself a favor and take one for a spin.

Serious Contender or Just a Wannabe?

I have been driving German sport sedans for last 15 years. All three (BMW 5, Mercedes-Benz E-class and Audi A6) have really strong sides, and fall short in some areas. So does this Jaguar. It features great exterior design. Perhaps it was the most stylish vehicle at the time. It is powerful, provides BMW type of handling, and beats all Germans in comfort category. It almost fully matches the features list from German competitors and all those features are standard in Jaguar XF. However, the quality of those features often falls short. Unlike modern Germans, Jaguar's interior is wrapped in real leather. But its feel and quality is questionable. There are noticeable gaps between panels, squeaks and rattles come from many spots inside. Cooled seats do not provide adequate cooling, while add noise to interior. Steering wheel heating is spotty. Climate control has the mind of its own and unlike in Germans it is not "set and forget" device. Voice control was disabled by Jaguar due to some complaints, Bluetooth connection for the phone supports only phone calls, audio playback is not possible. Navigation is basic with relatively poor graphic for year 2011. Instrument cluster is old fashioned, not matching the overall modern vehicle design. XF is big, it is longer than BMW 5, MB E-class or Audi A6, however there is very little space on the back row and getting there is not easy, thanks to cool rear door design. Same problem exists in the trunk. It is long and narrow, so reaching luggage there is not easy. Powerful 5.0 liter engine has a big appetite. Reaching 15 mpg, promised by the manufacturer in a city is not an ordinary task. In average rush hour commute you'll be lucky to reach 13-14 miles per gallon. Reliability of the vehicle is average. I have owned both more and less reliable cars. The nice thing about 2011 model is that it comes with 5 years 50,000 miles warranty, a year longer than competitors. Overall, despite lower than expected quality of some features, Jaguar XF is enjoyable, fun to drive car. It definitely provides soft and comfortable ride that Germans lack these days. So if you don't care much about convenience features, if you don't mind driving not so technologically advanced vehicle, Jaguar XF might be a viable option for you. And because it looses value faster than Germans, you'll find a better deal on used XF.

Great sport, luxury, design

Have owned te Supercharged for 6 months. 470 horses do not quit. 14 speaker B&W stereo is the best I heard of Audi, BMW and Mercedes. Styling is beautifully done. Dynamic suspension and sport setting for throttle give you the sport, stiched leather, including the dash, fineline oak wood and stereo give the luxury feel, and the styling is elegant. Feel of some of the switches, nav system, and seat supports improved in 2012. Overall, love this car. Great value too.

I purchased my XF on 5-25-11. I love the way the car looks. I love the way the car performs/handles. I've owned many cars and, the car I traded in for the Jag was a Lexus RX350, which was a great car but had nothing on the Jag in the looks department.... I'd recommend the XF to a friend or family member. The only thing which kept me from giving this car a 5, was I've had problems with the air pressure gadget which has lighted up more times than I like, but it's been manageable

The XF Premium with 385HP and B&W sound system and many of the upscale options of the XJ make for a great package in the mid $55k range. The advantage in 2011 of 5 years of bumper to bumper warrantee including brakle pads, belts, etc. is an added plus. If you add the Jag exhaust tips it gives a special look to the rear.

In the last 10 years I have owned one S Type, two XJs, one XJR and three XK8s. Loved them all and still have a 2006 XK8 ( last convertable to fit two sets of golf clubs in trunk.) The day I purchased the 2011 XF Premium with the Portfolio Package I drove it from Boston to North Florida. I started in snow and ended in Beautiful weather. The car performed flawlessly and everything worked beautifully. We love this car and strongly suggest you consider this car before you buy it's competitors. You will be impressed.
