Undone by Rattles
Pros: Engine performance
Cons: Noisiest car I have ever ownedA car that should be a pleasure to own and drive is a disappointing reminder of poor craftsmanship in the interior cabin. The multitude of noises detracts from any driving enjoyment. Service department is very friendly, but completely inept.
Pros: Interface with the audio, bluetooth, settings
Cons: Tires- back up camera .You could not ask for anything more in the XF Supercharged, POWER, comfort , style . Well put together very few problems to deal with, GREAT SERVICE from Jaguar. Good gas mileage on the freeway 22 to 26. For the money in this class car there is no real competition for me.
But the Rattles and squeaks
Pros: Blind spot monitor is superb. Love the gear shift disc too.
Cons: The rattles, the interior finish, the noise in the cabin. poor manufactureI bought one of the first XF's. Frost Blue. A good looking great performing car!. Exterior is superb, the interior design beats anything I have ever seen or used. BUT it has rattles and squeaks and groans and it is noisy. Do not buy the best audio system, you will never hear it. The inly problems after 2 years have been door locks that lock or unlock at their own will. This has been fixed, and the car was not to my order spec. A really great car, great service, but the Rattles!!!!!!!
Pros: everything...........(interior and exterior, lots of pep)
Cons: glove box sometimes gets stuck open.This car was given to me for my 60th birthday. In college my father let me drive his Jag and always wanted another one. This is the nicest and best looking car I have ever had the pleasure to own. Thank you dear sweet husband!
Pros: The Blind Spot monitor. Superb. The pop up gear shift is great too. Customer service
Cons: The rattles, the interior noise, the electrical faults
Advice: Test drive the actual car. Check finish and listen for rattles.Beautiful car. Great acceleration throughout the range. Good mileage, better than my last two cars. I get 31 on the freeway and 19 in town. In first 13 months of ownership have averaged 21.8 MPG. Very good interior design, spoiled by poor quality fit and finish. Quite noisy inside, lots of 1950's type rattles that never go away. Wood trim is rough and unfinished and cannot be replaced. Rear door wind noise is high above 50 mph. Great service. Did not get car I ordered but it was finally fixed after 4 months. Never had such good (and neccessary) customer support from a manufacturer.
