Vehicle2009 Jaguar XF Supercharged 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)
ReviewI'll start by saying that for the price, the looks of this car inside and out are amazing.
With the supercharger, its also faster than most cars in its class....when the car actually lets you drive it.
My car has 32,000 miles on it, and the problems I've had:
fuel door wouldn't open when I was on empty, inaccurate fuel gauge, passenger A/C stopped working, cabin light comes on and off by itself, and best of all, gear knob stuck in drive and then wouldn't restart after I turned the engine off.
Not to mention the cost of oil changes and maintaining the car, and forget about driving it in snow. With a MSRP of $63,000, these problems are simply unacceptable. Should have bought a Benz CLS.
Best FeaturesLooks, fast, sound system is amazing
Worst FeaturesNeeds to be reliable...it simply is not. Also, AWD as an option for cold weather areas would be nice.

There seem to be recurring faults with the XF (cabin lights that flicker on their own, A/C problems, fuel gauge..etc) while I seem to have found new ones!! I have a 2009 XF with almost 40k miles. I've been facing major problems the last couple of months that make me believe that this car is not just unreliable but unsafe. I've witness a gearbox failure (they blamed it on the control unit, as always), a reduced performance where I lost all acceleration and brakes (which they, again, blamed on a control unit) and that came about in the middle of a highway where I had to glide since the car was out of control. This is a crap car and I have only myself to blame for buying this piece of junk over a BMW 5 seriesReport it
