Bliss —

By far the best car I've owned. I fell in love with it on the first test drive and each and every day I look forward to driving it anywhere I can. The ride quality is superb - Jaguar found the perfect balance of smoothness, quietness, handling, and the feeling of being one with the road. It's buttery-smooth and reserved when you want it to be. But press the Dynamic Driving mode button on the center console and the computer quickens the throttle response and partially disables the stability-control nanny (it can be fully disabled as well.) The result is an almost completely different driving experience. Even more, turn the gear selector to SPORT and the transmission downshifts much more eagerly and holds on to those lower gears PERFECTLY for those aggressive switchbacks we all search for. And the cabin is immaculate. Everything is solidly built and assembled, and it feels substantial to the touch. The blue halo lighting is incredible at night. And Jaguar thought of a bunch of little things that they really didn't need to, but did anyway. Get stuck at a long red light? Just pull up on the electronic parking brake on the center console, leave the car in drive and you can rest your foot. When it comes time to pull away, just press down on the accelerator and the e-brake automatically disengages for you. When you get low on fuel, the nav screen automatically displays the nearest gas station(s). Want to listen to your voice nav in a British accent? No problem! The list goes on and on. Believe me when I tell you that I would have NEVER considered owning a Jaguar before seeing this car in person and then driving it. I always thought Jaguars were boring cars and only appealed to retired folks (sorry retired folks!) But this car absolutely ROCKS no matter how you look at it. Add to this the absolute best customer service at my local Jaguar dealership, and Jaguar just got themselves a lifelong customer!

Pros: Sexy, refined, fast, head-turner, thoughtful, and the best OEM stereo I've heard to date.

Cons: Navigation system falls short, no adaptive headlights.

Jaguar Xf —

Overall, when you get a car like the Jaguar XF, you don't buy it for the 300 horses provided by its 4.2L V8 but rather for the amazing comfort its ride provides and the marvelous technology found in the cabin. When you push the ignition button, you are instantly wowed by the way the AC vents rotate open and the gear select knob rises up out of the center console. The car drives very smoothly and consumes surprisingly little for its engine size. The exterior styling may not appeal to everyone especially the eccentric fascia but the rear end certainly resembles an Aston Martin (good thing) however all that can be said is that the build quality is quite meticulous and therefore you can expect the car to last. Also the car is quite exciting to drive perhaps less exciting than a BMW 5-series or Merc E-Class but then ride comfort would be compromised right? Even then the XF is no slouch with 300 horses to get it moving. If you're feeling spendy you can even get the supercharged V8 for an additional 117 BHP to really give those Germans some competition. In my opinion, Jaguar's new design philosophy is brilliant and I hope for the best in its future models.

Pros: The Cabin tech. The Body shape.

Cons: Sort of expensive. Questionable front-end styling.

The Comeback Kid — This is the car to bring Jag back. The acceleration is incredible, especially with the supercharged version, and the exhaust tone is deep and throaty. The styling is to die for and the interior finishes are superb. This cat is an absolute dream to drive, planning to buy one within 6 months

Pros: Styling,performance,finishes... the list is never ending

Cons: Not yet thoroughly tested, not available with AWD

... — The car had some really nice features, and it rides really nice. For example the shifter twists insead of moving down the usual track, and the vents come out of the dash board when you start it, and it has push button start which is cool. But on the other hand its too rich for my blood.

Pros: The options on this car are AMAZING!

A Big Leap Forward For The Cat — A beatiful looking car with the best interior I've seen in a long time... an amazing contemporary styled interior with heaps of leathes with contrast stitching. The car screams modern design inside and out... a huge leap forward from the Jag S-type...more than evolution this is revolution! Powerful, super responsive, amazingly smooth ride with tight handling and clinicaly precise steering. Good fun to drive, in style with great sound from the B&W speakers and even better sound form the V8 engine!

Pros: Contemporary design, performance, ride and handling

Cons: Limited rear visibility

Fast And Stealthy — This car is definitely fun to drive. It has 420 horses and it doesn't even look the part. I like the fact that the rear wheels are wider than the front wheels which gives better traction in the rear. It's fully loaded with either traction control or if you want a little wheel spin in the rear. I would definitely recommend this car for anyone who loves to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very nice look. Supercharged with a lot of horse power under the hood. Very sneaky because you would think it has that much power.
I like the fact the ac vents close downwards when its not in use and give it a nice look in the cabin. the acceleration was fantastic especially when in sports mode and breaking is magnificent.

Cons: Not for everyone because of its quick acceleration. Gas could be a little better but it does give an average of 17-19 mpg.

Great Luxury Car For Reasonable Price In Its Category —

I bought this car used. It had 42,000 miles on it and I didn't have any problems so far. Engine is great, a lot power and braking is excellent. Steering is very responsive and tuned up very well. Seats are very comfortable and they are easily adjustable. Info system is nice and not hard to master (like I Drive from BMW - old ones). Climate control is working great and audio system is excellent and sound is very clear at any volume. Ride is surprisingly good despite low profile tires - 20". Just be careful when you go near curb! Headlights are working great and visibility at night is excellent. Every button or anything on touch screen is working fine so far. This is like technical response from me for this car and now I will tell you how I feel about this car... Car is awesome! It is fast like "Jaguar" and handle like train on rail. I love how it drives and brakes and I really feel safe with this car! About fuel economy I really don't care and If I was looking for that then, I would buy Toyota Corolla or Prius. Btw this car got V-8 engine and what you heck expect from it 30-40 MPG. I just love how car looks (more from behind then from front) and I love exclusivity of it (not like millions of BMW and MB on road now). I didn't have any problem so far this car (after 18,000 miles) and even if I had I still would love this car. I don't regret buying it at all! Here we are again! I drove this car for another 8,000 miles and so far so good.... Though only problem I encountered is TPMS failure ( it still tells you there is tire with low pressure but it can't pinpoint which one...when work properly it tells you which one). Car is still running great and no other mechanical problems at all.... In winter season you have to press Winter Mode Button and there you go....even when you press gas harder nothing happens...car goes fine...I am still using all season tire Continental Pro DWS....after 1 1/2 year owning this car I still receive compliments from people....when I drive car fuel mileage combined is 16 MPG (if someone wants to know this information) and when my wife drives it 19 MPG.... so I guess she is better driver than me hahaha... I am glad I bought this car...so far I really have no complain on this car....

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

Pros: Engine, Power, Brakes, Design, Ergonomics, Visibility

Cons: None yet

Love This Car! — I've had this car a year and I love driving it, but the nearest dealership is 300 miles and I'm terrified it's going to have a problem the local garage can't fix because Jaguar won't release info about any model less than 10 years old. I miss my convertible too. A sun roof just isn't the same.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent power and a really beautiful car. A joy to drive!

Cons: Because of the adaptive cruise control, the brakes seem to wear out quickly, but I love the feature. The low-profile tires and stiff shocks make the ride a bit rough and very noisy when you are on any road/street that's not completely smooth.
