Pros

Plenty of linear power. You can hear the quite whine of the supercharger under spirited acceleration. The paddle shifters in S mode require a bit of skill. If you run too long in a gear, the CPU will shift for you. It ran every bit of a 13.3 in the 1/4 mile even though it weighs over 4000 pounds. The trunk can hold an entire shopping cart full of groceries with no need to use the cabin. Over all it's a gorgeous body style, with exceptional performance.

Cons

Power equals fuel consumption. If you drive around with a light foot, the gas mileage isn't bad. Requires 91 octane or higher. Falling fuel prices are helping.

Exceptional Looks And Great Performance. — We loved everything about this car. 420 HP is manageable, yet still fun. The price for power upgrades weren't as high as some cars, but won't yield the same results as a 2 door coupe. This was a third car for us and we used it for short outings and occasional shopping.

Pros

Very attractive, head-turning design. High quality build, firm chassis and very stable at just about any speed. Super roomy and comfortable, this Jag is allot of "bang for the buck". Also, suprisingly fuel effiecient for such a powerful, nimble road car. Amazingly, this car in 2009 has more sofisticated Nav and electronic features that are just now being implemented in new cars. It has everything you would want/need and more!

Cons

You have to pay close attention to the speedometer as you are not aware how fast you are going. I think for a car of this caliber, there is a bit more road noise than I would like.

A Great Car From Jaguar! — I never expected to end up buying a Jaguar XF, however I have been amazed that not only do people think its a new car, they are highly imporessed with all aspects of this cat. I have no negative things to say about my 2009 Jaguar XF, it has been a trouble free, excellent car for me. recently, i took the car on a 740 mile road trip. The seats proved to keep you very comfortable with no fatigue, it managed an impressive average fuel economy of approx 28 MPG at a 75 MPH higway drive. If it is a windy day on a highway, you have no way of knowing as this Jag stays firmly planted on the road with almost no wind noise. Getting on and off exit ramps, the car accelerates effortlessly to 75 MPH as if it was born to go 100+ MPH. A pleasure to operate!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

High Performance. Great Looking Car — Jaguar XF supercharge is a similar looking car to the new style of the Austin Martin. It has an enormous amount of horsepower (420 HP), high performance, great handling and luxurious. I especially like the keyless entry system -- its a must in Seattle. Mechanically, this car has been very reliable.

Pros

Absolutely beautiful and sophisticated touring car with huge power and enormous grip. More gizmos and options than I knew how to use.

Cons

Hopeless on even just wet leaves, let alone any foul weather. Even basic maintenance was complex. My mechanic wouldn't touch it.

Premium Luxury Touring Sedan — I received this car as an amazing gift from my father. My mother had mobility issues and could not get into the car any longer. The car was absolutely beautiful and had fantastic power and road-holding, but having own another high-performance car just prior to the Jag, I just didn't have a "love affair" with it. This is certainly an amazing car for someone, but it was just not what I wanted at this time. My main concern was maintenance. The car is extremely complex and the components are very tightly packed into the engine compartment. My local mechanic (a very nice and competent guy) declined to work on it and recommended I take it to a dealer. In the short time I had it, there were some electrical "gremlins" that were disconcerting. Nothing that left me stranded, but having the car not go into gear was annoying. I also had a dash-board panel go blank which was "fixed" by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it.

Unparalleled Combination Of Luxury And Performance. — This is a incredible blend of luxury and performance. Blindly fast with 0-60 coming up in 4.9s. The leather seats are amazing. The car is packed with features and options. Without doubt the most high-end car I have ever owned.

Great Vehicle — I think this ia a great car to own. The drive is really good. The seats are comfortable and the cabin is fairly roomy. I think the most significant thing you will notice about this car other than the drive is all the double takes you will get.

One Of The Best Cars In The Class. Will Not Disappoint. — When I first drove this car I fell in love with it. I get stopped a lot with questions about it. I get the double take as I drive down the road and the gas stops are becoming funny with people from little children to older ladies admiring the vehicle.

Pros

Incredibly smooth, powerful supercharged engine.  Car handles better the faster it goes.  Styling is impressive, surprising.  

Cons

Hits the gas pretty hard.  Could do without the chromed grill, but later models and mods can easily fix it.

When You Drive This Car, You Get The Feeling That All Other Cars In This Class Are Just Pretending. — This is a very nice change of pace for Jaguar, creating it's own unique class of vehicle. Fun to drive, very sophisticated. Definitely more car for the money, easily outclasses any other luxury sedan in this class, and priced lower to boot.

Great Car — This is a great car to own. It's fun to drive, great to loo at and I have not had any major issues. I can say that I am enjoying this vehicle quite a bit. A that's a lot to say considering my history with Audi and BMW, both which I love.
