Most beautiful elegant fast auto I have ever owned

Every time I park this Jaguar as I walk away I look back to appreciate its beauty and the drive experience It just provided and smile. Just a simple drive to the office is an adventure. It is luxurious, beautiful rare understated and very fast. I don't get boy racers trying to race me like in my Porsches. I can drive and enjoy without bother. It brakes like a supercar, is fast like a supercar, and is a bargain unlike most supercars, it is dependable and low cost unlike a supercar. but it is a super car


Most car for money I ever have

If you in need for speed with class, Jaguar XF is the one car, which you have to consider. The used one, because it is real V8 with excellent suspension, well balanced body, comfortable and really fun to drive car for price of Nissan Versa. Yes, it is not practical. There is no practical V8 5.0L car exists! 2012 XF model is bold, stylish and real. Love this car.


I really do love my Jag...but

I love everything about my Jaguar XF Portfolio. Its a head turner even in 2019. Its fast and sexy. I just wish the reliability issues wouldn't plague my car. the coolant issue is beyond annoying and the sensors are crazy . However I don't know if it was Jaguar themselves or the scam used dealership I purchased it from. Either way im screwed because with repairs being so expensive on the car I basically can't afford to get it fixed correctly. so it sucks.


Very reliable, never s problem.

It's 2 cars for the price of one. It can be a elegant Luxury cruiser. Soft leather interior with beautiful wood accents. Or a true Spots car. Dynamic Mode and Sports Mode really brings these features to life. I have a XF Supercharged V8 Portfolio edition. I bought that year model because it's the 1 St if the 2nd generation. And the last with the V8 in the engine bay.


Great V8 cat!

Love this car! Great V8 motor. Great handling. Great dealer service. Not nearly as unreliable as people think. Haven?t had any issues with it. And it has 70k miles on it.


A 2 faced car!

I love the split personality of this car. Taking my Mom to dinner in a classy high style luxury sedan. Driving by myself through the mountains of Colorado and Utah in dynamic mode and DSC turned off WOW what a sports car from its heritage. This is the 2 nd Jaguar I have owned. I sold my 2003 S Type to buy the CF both cars have been 100% reliable. The only thing is with any car new tires and brakes. Just returned to CA from KCMO. Avg fuel even using dynamic and sports mode I had a average of 23.4 mpg. Not bad for a Supercharged V8 5.0. love this as much as I did my S Type which was also a xxxx nice car. I hope I'll one day be able to get an XJ L, it's free to dream.


Great car!

Love the car. Always wanted one and picked one up preowned. Looks great and is a blast to drive. Comfortable seats for short trips or long road trips. Fantastic V8 motor and handles great. Plenty of features in the Portfolio edition and has been very reliable. Mostly just regular maintenance. Oil changes and tire rotations. I would recommend the car to anyone looking for a great automobile.


great vehicle

its a great vehicle very reliable and a smooth ride. I usually just use it to go out on the weekends and love all the attention I get.


An stand-out car that actually stands out

The XF Jag is a superb car. I have been totally satisfied with it and totally satisfied with the service at the Jaguar dealership. Even after years of owning it, it gives me a little thrill every time I walk out of the office and see it in the parking lot. It's about time to swap it for a new E-Pace, and I will miss it.


British elegance personified

Great vehicle to drive, definitely enjoy the roar when it's in sport mode. Not a fan of the touchscreen/radio/navigation controls. The user interface is terrible, seems like they had a bunch of mechanical engineers design it, not someone qualified to design user interfaces.
