Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
A year into ownership I still like this car more every time I get into it. Magnificent interior with supportive yet extremely comfortable seats. Quiet, too. Supercharged six has plenty of power available immediately without turbo lag. Averaging 23 mpg in mostly suburban driving. Many admiring comments from people about the car's stunning design and looks. Looked at both Lexus and Mercedes before purchasing. The Jag leaves them both far behind.
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.
I Love My Jag
Pros: The sports car look and feel with the touch of class!
Cons: so far nothingI have only had my Jag for 3 weeks but it is my baby already. Best car I have ever had. Rides awsome, Handles like a dream. I took a 50 mile per hour curve at 80 like it was nothing! LOVE THIS CAR! The looks from people never stop. Everyone stares as I go by!
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.
My best ride yet!
Pros: Hands Free Navigation and controls, Her name is LOLA.
Cons: Tight rear seat leg room.I have owned MB E and S class cars as well as Lexus E, LS and LX models, but none of them ever gave me the sensation that I was riding on rails. The response of my XF adapting tothe road or driving condition still exhilerates me even after owning the car for over 6 months. This jaguar will be in my garage for a very long time. The only car that I can compare it to in this class would be the MB 300CE. Going 0-60 in no time means everything to me especially with the SUV/MiniVan population on the roads. My only negative with this car is the back seat leg room, a little tight but that's ok, I just won't put anyone back there ;)
The New 2011 Jaguar XJ Supercharged
Pros: The 470 Horsepower of sheer elegance and guts
Cons: It would be nice to have a real instrument cluster, but heh, we live in a world of graphics.Wow, what a car. This is the first time a bought a car sight unseen. The car far exceeds my expectations. I previously owned a 1998 XJL. Yes, I had problems with the 1998 but Jag fixed them all without a fuss (including replacing the transmission). The 2011 is far superior in interior materials and design. The new exterior is very striking and worthy of a car of this stature. The 470 HP is very responsive and gutsy. For the weight/HP ration, the car screams performance. On the highway, it certainly provide good gas mileage. I am averaging 18 combined. The are minor glitches but nothing to gripe about. Yes, I would buy this car again. Overall, I love the looks, stance and interior. My true test is that I enjoy washing the car every weekend to admire the 'cat' for all perspectives. It doens't meow, but growls with purrfection.
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!!!!!!!
