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!!!!!!!
Jaguar 2008 - the last of the classic Jaguars
Cons: Outdated ElectronicsAs Jaguar moves to the world of the XF and stretching it into the new XJ 2011, my Jaguar XJ Super 8 has been a stylish drive. Smooth ride and a rather responsive engine makes it a joy. Outdated electronics and a very poor service department makes it me after nearly 20 years of owning several Jaguars ready to move on. It saddens me since I have become associated with Jaguar since I have driven one for many years. They are unique cars and always an eye catcher but from the owner's perspective they are work - or at least require to much work for what they deliver.
Great Car except for Keyless Entry
Pros: Style & Performance
Cons: Keyless Entry is only complaint!The Jag XK is a great car, but the Keyless Entry is a piece of junk. Give me an old fashioned key to start the engine!
Deferred Dream Realized
Pros: The magnificently tuned ride and suspension.
Cons: Have yet to discover anything I don't like.As a member of the college graduate class of 1967, I saw myself as soon earning 10K a year and driving an XKE, but there was the war in Viet Nam, then law school, then family and always something that took priority. Forty years later the XKE had been long replaced by the XK8: well worth the wait!
