Over-Engineered, Over-Rated
By Yergo on


2010 Jaguar XF Premium 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 6A)


Took delivery of my first XF in 2008, and the second one in 2010 (kicking myself for letting them talk me into replacing the first one). Problems ranged from the mundane (faulty cabin light that would turn on when I make a sharp right-turn), to the comical (door windows that would automatically re-open when you want it closed—reminiscent of a ‘Three Stooges’ show), to the seriously annoying (a creaking sound from the windshield that took several visits to diagnose and eventually fix). By May 2010, I had visited the Rosenthal Jaguar dealership a staggering 21 TIMES for a whole slew of gadget-related or common parts problems! It was so bad that EVERYONE on the Jaguar desk already knew me!

Best Features

The ride, the feel, the look of the car.

Worst Features

Rides well; everything else needs fixing and adjusting. Very unreliable car-- take it from someone who's owned two! (Will get rid of the current one once I get some equity in it).

A largely negative review and yet 4 stars of 5. Interesting & confusing.
