Too Glitchy! Outdated electronics!

by BobD from San Diego, CA on Tue Nov 28 2017

I have now had my 2016 XJL Potfolio for 1 year. I love the looks of the car and it’s driving performance and luxury. However the infotainment system is years behind Merecedes, Audi, and BMW. I had an Audi A8L prior to this and this is a step backwards as far as the electronics. The worst part is that The Bluetooth and hands free system have never worked properly since day 1 and are completely unreliable and dealer had not been able to get it resolved. Also my ability to get it to play my music from my phone is equally unreliable. Just way too many electronic glitches with this car. Getting assistance from Jaguar and the dealer has also been a big hassle. I am going to take a hit and get ride of this car in the next few months, tired of the glitches and their inability to get it resolved. As a whole I have been very disappointed with my experience and the quality of the car and Jaguar’s service. I would not recommend getting this car unless you have lots of patience.

Great car BUT

by SSEXILONA2 from SAN DIEGO, CA on Thu Jun 22 2017

Beautiful design -BUT FOR THE PRICE OF THIS CAR (XJ 2016) IT DOES NOT HAVE A WINDSHIELD DEICER? Also: for the price of this car there are no hand hold straps to assist getting in or out of the front seat - plain dumb when you consider that us Old foggies are the ones who buy these cars and could use the assistance getting in and out. Also the navigation system is far too complex and basically unusable. Te eco system is a real pain.

Beats BMW and Audi

by Jeff from Wellington, Fl on Tue May 29 2018

I have driven a BMW 750LI and an Audi A8, the jaguar XJL 5.0 beats then both. The technology in the car, the style and comfort, and the power beats then hands down

2012 Jaguar XJ

by Jimmy from Austin, Texas on Mon May 09 2016

Very nice car you will fall in love with. Has a bold, aggressive stance that is noticed especially silver. Car's touch screen is pokey, but has a lot of functions and the navigation map is very good. One of the best features is the sound system. You will hear almost every instrument in clear, balanced sound with over 20 speakers. They put a lot of time and money into the sound and it completes this car you will not need to spend a penny on upgrades. Look for certified versions only since small things can go wrong. Had a radiator tube burst twice and the cup holder cover broke which was serviced for free by the dealer. They also give you a free loaner.

it is really comfort and flexible

by AhmEmad95 on Sat Jul 22 2017

I purchased a used 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport with a lot of options and under 15k miles. I'm a big guy, 6'3" and big-boned, with two younger children that require car seats. There is still some room behind me with the seat backed up all of the way. The features and smart key are a nice touch. I am used to a V-6 AWD vehicle, so it has taken some time getting used to the slower acceleration in normal or ECO mode. In Sport mode, the acceleration is good. I really like the looks of this car. It just stinks you have to go to the Sport or Limited model to get dark interiors, but I'll deal with it.

Was a fun car to drive. Comfortable once you got in but hard to get in and out of. Trunk was a joke.

Our Take on the 2016 Jaguar XJ

The Verdict: The 2016 Jaguar XJ is stylish, dynamic and an unexpected value in its class, especially considering Jaguar’s excellent warranty. But the sedan’s tendency for glitches might put that warranty to good use.

Versus the competition: The XJ prioritizes performance over isolation, a sure turnoff for anyone who prefers the coddling comforts of certain top-shelf sedans. It lacks the technological opulence that others boast, too — but before Jaguar makes that leap, it needs to iron out a few bugs with its existing tech.

The XJ comes in regular or extended wheelbases with rear- or all-wheel drive, which you can compare here. Jaguar tweaked the XJ’s styling and updated its... Read More
