Was tempted to go with 3.5 petrol but due to the cost pf premium went for the diesel not disappointed. Only concern so far is the rear seat latches what were you thinking Jaguar they fall off by just touching them. My only real concern after a month of driving my new car.
I only buy diesels because I plan on keeping a car 12 or more years and a diesel is the only way to make that happen. I had three VWs before the Jag. Before the VWs I had a 2002 Ford F250 Crew Cab. I started with a 2012 VW Golf TDI. Had an accident (not my fault) that nearly killed me, literally. So I upgraded to a 2013 VW Passat TDI. Got rear ended twice, not my fault. Car was curse so I got a 2014 VW Passat TDI that VW had to buy back from me. Used myhopstoch dot com because Edmunds and Truecar told me to pay $1 OVER MSRP. Auto Trader gave me a cert to pay $700 OVER MSRP. Hopscotch saved my $8K. So about the Jaguar, love it! The Jaguar website is a little misleading. It says the 20d Premium has everything the 20d has, like SiriusXM. Mine did not come with, so I have a mess of wires and because the roof is aluminum, the magnet won't stick. The car halls ass. I was doing 95 on the highway in the middle of the night and would have sworn I was doing 70. The car comes with four driving modes, rain/snow (starts in second gear), Economy, Normal, and Dynamic. I love Dynamic. The speedometer and RPM gauge turns red like it is angry. I'm averaging 42 mpg city and highway. The Jag comes with not only a 5 year/60,000 mile bumper to bumper, but also comes with all scheduled maintenance for 5 year / 60,000 miles. The free maintenance is a few grand in savings. I'm not tall, so it gives the back seat more parking room. If you are tall, that will take away space from the back seat passengers. As far as the technology, I'm good with it. Had a great mapping system. My only complaint is it doesn't like my Texas accent. If I had to add/change anything, first I would put a place for the keys! I have lost the keys in the car and had to search around for them! I'd like something between the inside edges of the front seats to prevent things from falling under the seat. Jag needs to add a few options to all models, like proximity key entry. I loved walking up to my VW and just opening the door because my keys were in my pocket. The car has a 12v port in the drivers cubby in the center console. Since you have to run some wires out of it, it needs notches in the cubby lid for the wires to get through. The apps are okay. The remote app is the one I use the most to make sure I locked it and rolled up the windows and start it to pre-cool the car down. In Texas we don't let them run to heat them up, we run them to cool them down before we get in! The trunk room is more than adequate. As far as the apps, you have to run them through your phone into the car. It is easier to just run any apps thru the blue tooth from the phone. No sense in running the app through my phone into the car entertainment system. It just adds a step that isn't necessary. It should come standard with SiriusXM. SiriusXM are fools for not allowing that and giving a three month trial. The vision package is very cool. I have the cold weather package that I will be able to use a few times a year. The front seats need some lumbar support adjustment pillows. I absolutely love the car. I can tell when I change it to dynamic mode. The steering tightens up, the suspension gets stiffer and it moves. I was doing 98mph and getting 57 mpg according to the car computer. I'm averaging 42 mph in mixed highway and city use. Jaguar know how to make you feel special. I got a box from them. It had all sorts of different little panels on the use of the infotainment system and four tire stem caps with little jaguars on them. I must admit, it made me feel special and like they cared. I have breakdown and SOS buttons and I think I have them for at least 5 years. I wanted a diesel. Chevy couldn't tell me when the Cruze was coming out and now I'm glad. This may be a sedan, but drop it into dynamic mode and it is a sports car! Have 2500 miles on it and not a single problem. I love that there are two 12 volt ports in the rear of the driver cubby for use by the back seaters. There is also one in the trunk. I absolutely love this car!
