2009 Jaguar XF-Series User Reviews
- $23,388 - $28,002
- Excellent handling, fit and finish
Purchased As New
This is an incredible car. This Jag runs and drives perfectly, perfect balance and handling. Sound system is awesome, interior is second to none. Could use a little bit more power, so next time I will get the Supercharger. What a gorgeous car! This makes driving in LA traffic so much more bearable. My friends with BMWs are envious....read morehide

- Looks great, handles good, ride is comfortable
- Haven't found anything bad yet.
Purchased As New
This is my 5th Jaguar, 1961 XKE, 1982 XKJ, 2000 "S" Type, 2000 XK8 Coupe. Had various issues but loved them just the same. I average 30,000 + miles a year so I use my cars.
Overall ride is great but not as quite as my 2007 Lexus GS350. Seating in the rear is a little tight for tall passengers.
Car is still "new" so I'll wait and see.
Navigation and telephone systems work but difficult to load memory information manually. Voice input works OK but is slow.
B & W radio is fair. Reliability has yet to be determined....read morehide

- great performance
- needs to iron out the kinks in the computer system
Purchased As New
purchased the vehicle brand new in July08...experienced several mechanical defects...from inoperable sunroof, passenger door-lock jam, to navigation screen black-outs...technicians are not well-trained on repairing vehicle...over a 3mos period, the vehicle was in the dealership possession for approximately 1mo for repairs...finally I had to consult an attorney...whom negotiated a monetary out-of-court settlement on my behalf..."Jaguar refused to replace the vehicle"...be careful when selecting this vehicle...the look is very deceiving....read morehide

- Styling, Acceleration, Blind-spot mirrors, Sound system, parking Assists
- None yet discovered
Have loved this car. Acceleration is better than our 2001 XJR. Great features like folding rear seats, blind-spot radar on side-view mirrors, video cam to help with backing up. The premium sound system is worth the money - wonderful. Styling interior and exterior is modern and tasteful. Have had no quality problems in first 10,000 miles. Our dealer's (SF) service dept is excellent so we expect no problems through the extended warranty period. Always get a loaner. This is our fourth Jaguar since late 1990's. There has been a continuing improvement in quality - with this one the best to date. (We also have a 2005 XK, bought used, also very reliable with terrific warranty.)...read morehide

- Great blend of style and muscle looks, perfect interior, great navigation, great driving.
- iPod reboots often, but I think the problem is my iPod not the iPod interface
I had a BMW 325 and an Infiniti G35 prior to this car. Was looking at the 5-Series BMW, E-Series Mercedes, Infiniti M and Lexus GS. On my way to the Lexus shop, I saw this car on the Jag lot. Never owned a Jag. Never thought I would. And didn't plan on looking at them. I now own a Jag and I'm loving it.
The car delivers more value, better looks, better interior and better driving than all of the above mentioned cars.
The drive is phenomenal. When you are driving easy, the ride is quiet, comfortable and the engine/trans is subdued. Get on the gas, put the trans in Sport mode or have fun with the paddle shifters and the car turns into a real thriller that just wants to go faster and harder around turns. The car sticks like glue and the growl sounds great.
The navigation screen contains alot of the interior controls that normally appear on other cars cluttered dashboards. It takes a little getting used to, but once you use it a few times, it's second nature. Most of the major navigation and phone commands can be spoken and the system responds perfectly.
I especially like the interior at night. Jag did a nice job with the interior illumination and mood lighting.
Downside: I'm putting so many miles on the car (enjoying every one of them), that I'm afraid of the depreciation I'll experience. I've noticed that Jags tend not to retain value, primarily due to quality issues. I can only hope my experience remains positive at this point since I purchased the car outright. I haven't had a problem in the 5 months I've owned it, and keeping my fingers crossed.
P.S. I've received more compliments on this car from total strangers than you can imagine. I wish they came out with this car when I was single!!! But it definitely makes me feel good about my decision and purchase....read morehide

- Excellent Styling inside and out. Prem. Lux options are great.
- Non so far
This is my first Jaguar. Have always liked the style of a jaguar. When I saw the new XF, I knew it was the car for me. I have the Prem. Lux with 19' tires, advanced vision, Bowers sound, tech package, warm and cold weather package. It is an overall great car. I hae only had it a few weeks but I get more compliments on it than I ever did in my previous cars (Mercedes ML and Lexus ES)....read morehide

- great interior too fast!!!! fuel economy was 24mpg at 75mph
- worried about resale
the interior makes sitting behind the wheel be like a whole new and enjoyable driving experience-the dash is great. the smooth, quiet and fast accelleration at any speed is a mind blower. nothing is as silky as a jag. a state trooper let me off for going 90mph because he understood why i would do it in that car on an empty interstate hwy....read morehide

- Incredibly fun to drive, the sound system is phenomenal. It just does what you tell it to do.
- Downside of clean dash appearance is having a lot of functions buried in the touch screen
This car is so exciting and so fun, inside and out. It's amazing how many people come up to me in parking lots, gas pumps, or wherever just to talk about it. The quality is tight, the responsiveness is wonderful, and it just purrs at 140. After owning it about 6 months now, I still absolutely love it!...read morehide
