Have had my 2012 Base XF with 5.0 Liter V8 for about 4 months. Getting about 18 MPG. I did get 29 MPG on a 200 mile trip.
Acceleration is terrific, near the 5.2 or 5.4 0-60 mph claim.
I put 18" wheels and Conti tires because of all of the potholes on Rt 95. I prefer the ride now. the nav isn't all that great, but
it does work. Radio is mediocre. But I bought the car to drive, to shift, to accelerate and to make turns that are amazing for a daily driver. this is better than my Volvo S60R. This is a real grown up car. Much better than BMW, I think. Beautiful, graceful, fast, fun. Very reliable so far. This car will become more popular. All of my friends love it. And I love it.
Accel, handling, sound of the engine
funny, you can't check the oil level unless the car is warm and it has been sitting on a flat surface for 10 minutes! No kidding. This is a real jag quirk.
