#392 of 430 XF SC looks
May 16, 2009 (6:20 pm)
I just put the chrome side vents and a rear spoiler on my XF SC. I cant tell you how many people stop and stare at this car! When I go to a hotel, the valet's fall over themselves to park my car and they always park it close to the door so everyone can see it! I have never seen another on the road since I bought mine last year. I have never had another car that elicits the response I get from this XF SC!!!
#393 of 430 XF in winter weather

Can anyone tell me how this car performs in winter weather, snow and ice? I live in Iowa so we get some of that. I assume it needs snow tires put on for winter?

I know what you mean. I just have the Luxury XF and I get the same response. I recently went to a Casino in Mississippi and they kept the car up front also.
#395 of 430 Disappointed XF Premium owner in Southern Calif!
May 20, 2009 (10:31 pm)
Beware! bought the 09 XF Premium in June 2008 and drove it brand new fully load off the showroom floor. Gorgeous car and was so excited about my XF. However started having problems 6 months later in Dec 08 after taking it in for a scheduled maintenance. Just two weeks later after that maintenance started having all types of problems: (Fuel light on, Knocking/rev-ving noise,). Of course thought I was in the clear and that the problem was fixed by my dealership then I had to bring the car back a second time a month later in Jan 09 for same fuel problems and more. This time (very hard time pumping gas in car, Dash display language changed to foreign words)ÖWell this second time of round my dealership said they found the problem that my fuel had a kink in it and thatís what caused the problem. Well fast forward back to square one again same car issues just took my car back today on May 20, 2009. I am a disappointed Buyer and now I donít want the car anymore thatís 3 occasions now I had to bring the car in, communicating with my dealership on finding a resolution! Very frustrated! On top of that received very bad customer service from my dealership here in Riverside alot of headaches.
#396 of 430 Still considering an XF but ...

Will see if the '10 model clears out some of the first model year bugs of the '09's that many have already been mentioned. I've owned a good number of makes and models over the years but have seen few of these XF's on the road which makes it even more appealing. The ones I have seen look much better 'in person' than in photos, etc. I'm searching out over the various networking sites (Jag specific forums, LinkedIn, etc.) on info about Chicago area Jag dealer and Jag mechanic ratings as if I do decide this route I want it to be as good an experience as possible. Over in the Luxury Lounge Edmunds forum, some discuss the XF but as this forum is more specific we'll see what others have experienced. It will not be my only car so I'm willing to deal with the minor stuff (to a point) but stuff should get fixed on the first try and of course even buying one should not be regretful! I'll be combing the archives for Chicago dealer Jag experiences but more specifically the service issue stuff as I think I'll do fine on the purchase/lease with so many Jag dealers around here that compete with other. I can offer dealer feedback for Mazda, VW, Dodge and as of late MB/smart (wife's commuter car) but Jaguar is a much different 'animal' (pardon the pun). With all of the favorable press hopefully Jaguar is heading in the right direction with its new owners.

Sorry to hear about your problems. However, I purchased a 2009 XF Luxury and I really love my car. It is stylish and I feel like a million dollars driving it. I have had this vehicle for over a year and the only problem I had was opening the gas tank, but supposedly they have corrected that and changed the hinge for me. Also, I find that it makes really good gas mileage - 26 to 30 mpg on the highway.
#398 of 430 engine noise
Jun 05, 2009 (2:31 pm)
New Xf with less than 3000 mis. The engine seems to make ALOT of noise eminating from the rear. Maybe it's not the engine but the drive train. Anyone else with similar problem? It sounds very whiny.

I live in PA. and just got an offer for a base a brand new xf for $699 and $2500 down. My last 2 Jaguar s type leases were also demos. What dealership did you lease from?

You've had your XF for 7 months now-are you happy with it?
Would also be interested in hearing from anyone else who has had their XF for some time. Any issues?
I've had an XJ8 for 10 years (love the car despite the $$ maintenance). It's time for a new car. Nothing is wowing me except for the XF (I've looked at Mercedes, BMW, etc.) I'm a little reluctant to to get the XF given it's a new model though--no data on reliability. Would appreciate all input to get me off the fence.
