I found the rebate on AOL autos only, but two dealers denied that there was anything. Even Jaguar corporate customer relations denied having any rebates.
THe finance guy came up with either 5.9% financing, or $3000 off. However, my sales order did not show that as a rebate or discount. It is still a mystery to me.
I did experiment some more with Bluetooth phone. If the same phone gets into the car, it docks automatically. If the phone changes or if two phones are in the car, one has to be docked manually.
Good luck in getting a good deal. We have had ours for just about 2 weeks now, and love it. Not happy with our dealer though.
#9 of 15 Lease Offer
Oct 06, 2009 (6:30 am)
I received the following lease quote for a 2010 XF w/ Portfolio package. The sticker is $61,000 and that is what the quote is based on. Please let me know your thoughts on the quote and what you think I can get the cap cost down to. Any information is much appreciated. B/t/w, the incentive that my dealer told me about is from the factory and they will essentially buy out the last few months of your current lease. Haven't been able to confirm that if you don't have a lease whether or not you can get that money as a cash rebate.

I have never leased a car. But I think you should be able to do better on the agreed value. Also, the factory incentive to buy out current lease should result in cash out of pocket for Jaguar, so they should reduce price of car by that amount.
Between these two aspects, I would try to get the agreed value down to $57000.

#12 of 15 New owner of Jag XF Premium
Nov 27, 2009 (8:16 pm)
I took delivery of my liquid silver with warm charcoal interior XF Premium on 2 August. This car replaced my BMW 530i and has big shoes to fill. The 530 was completely trouble for 3 years of driving and 48K miles and provided me with great fun, albeit a little underpowered.
The XF is superb. It drives and handles extremely well, is quiet and has a significant road presence due to its impressive looks. It outperforms the 5 series without a problem and, although the 5 series will out handle the car on the limit, the XF provides sufficient entertainment for me to consider the difference irrelevant. It certainly looks better than the 5. My one complaint is that the 5 series comfort seats are a lot better than the Premium seats (the premium seats are not wide enough and do not have enough lateral support). The Portfolio edition would have provide better seats but not sufficiently to justify the cost increase.
I have a number of fit and finish issues and wondered whether any one else on this forum has had similar problems;
1. Rattle/creaks in the overhead console (fixed by the dealer).
2. The trim underneath the glove compartment kept dropping down and seems to be made of very flimsy material. A clip was missing. (fixed by the dealer).
3. The rear parcel shelf does not fit properly - it does not fit into the rear central brake light housing correctly. Dealer has been unable to get a replacement which seems odd.
4. I have a mysterious rattle that appears to come from the rear passenger drivers side door. It seems to disappear after 10 minutes or so of driving.
5. An interesting chink noise somewhere up front which appears when you brake or change direction. Not intrusive but rather odd.
I leased this car since I am not sure whether it will hold up and I am concerned that the issues mentioned above may be an indicator of things to come. The forums I have looked at tend to show an alarming number of electronic problems in the 2009 models, especially related to the shifter (the mention of the software update for problems that are related brake pedal pressure worry me on the 2010 model). Again it would be useful to hear of any problems that owners are having with the 2010 Premium model (especially as this is a new engine).
Despite the above I love this car and want to be prepared if there are issues I can avoid if possible.
#13 of 15 Jaguar XF gas tank won't fill
Dec 22, 2011 (11:10 am)
At most gas stations the automatic cut off shuts off after only filling up 1/2 of the tank, even manually slowing down the flow of the gas shuts off early. Shell stations appear to be better, anyone else find this issue or better a solution

I read the concernse of new owner, and let me tell you that unless you have got a lemon (which can happen with any car brand), you have nothing to worry about.
I have a 09 Supercharged, and 3 years and some 30,000 mi later, I am still so pleased and delighted.
I did get some problems, but all were easily fixed and they were far in between.
1- the AM radio stopped working and the whole unit was replaced
2- the gas tank door was sticking (not fully fixed and know that they changed the design on 10 model)
3- the rear driver side door handle did not open the door, was fixes in one day
4- the dash board top leather liner pealed at the windshield side of the dash (fixed by dealer)
5- developed rough idle few months back. The dealer said he re programed the car. The car acceleration and performance was noticeably better that it ever was. Exceeded the off the show room performance (0-100 km/hr down to 5.1 from 5.4)
Whitby mentioned "An interesting chink noise somewhere up front". I got that too, i noticed it since the first day, do not know what it is and never checked it. It happens only as i pull off the drive way and do the first braking and steering input, and do not seem to notice it after.
Otherwise, this is the best most fun car i ever had. I love the supercharged power (even thou only 420 hp), and still enjoy the "greet and welcome" maneuvers of the drive knob and AC. I find my self tuning on and off the front reading light just to experience the smooth Jaguar Touch effect, and for the same reason i touch activated the clove compartment. And 3 years later, whenever i have a passenger in the car it is "show time". Some of these features did not make it to 2010 model and many are not even available on the XJ. I show off the valet parking mode and tell my un knowing passengers this is a "James Bond" car, and i have to enter the code to make it work. Really this is a fun car. And has the best interior dash board design.
The global window close and open functions was removed starting the 2010 models in the US. Also the touch operated glove compartment was discounted (a pity), the power operated head rest was also cancelled for manual operation. I also do not like the new black on silver treatment of the 2012 model year. The black window switch stuck me as unpainted spare part replacement. Also disappointing is that some 2012 models will have a single exhaust outlet.
I am glad i got the 2009 model with all the bells and whistles.
If like it, buy it, you will love it.

Nice to hear a positive review! I have an '09 XK, I had the same AM radio issue. Not a big deal, dealer replaced the ACM and all was well. Until the NAV system went wacky, dealer replaced that, too. Warranty, loaner Land Rover, all is well! Hey, you buy a British car, don't expect perfect electronics...
