Extreme Luxury by Joyce from the Village on 03/24/2012. Trim: 2011 Jaguar XF Premium, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The look and the feel are excellent. It's a car people notice because of its unique styling. The ride is smooth and quiet. The interior is very futuristic. I love the way the vents on the dashboard close and disappear into the dash when the fan is turned off or the engine is turned off. Repairs have been minimal and minor over the last 1 1/2 years.
Cons: My exterior is Cashmere Gold, so it doesn't show much dirt. However, the wheels accumulate break dust very quickly and require frequent cleaning.
Overall review: This is a great car. I also loved its predecessor, the S-Type 4.5. I highly recommend test driving and owning one.

My first Jag - super cool! by Crusing in style on 01/23/2011. Trim: 2011 Jaguar XF Supercharged, Owned 1 year.
Pros: all inclusive warranty for peace of mind Lunar gray color looks even better at night esp. with the tint added Heated steering wheel appreciated on cold mornings. Supercharged offers a lot of power on-demand without the 'lag' of a turbo The lack of need to select options (like you do with MB/BMW) since everything is included really simplifies the buying experience. Powerful headlights help you see where you are going. Back-up camera - hard to understand how I ever got along without it. Parking aid and tight turing circle helps you park into tight spaces. Awesome Sound out of the bowers and whitney speakers. Blue phosphorus internal lighting is a really nice touch. Large trunk
Cons: Touch screen is little slow. Direct access menu buttons (like BMW) would be helpful. Navigation locks you out once car is driving, even a passenger cannot input a new destination with the car in motion. Accessing points of interest while driving is tedious/difficult. DVD based system based on 2009 so need update. Transmission gear changes should be a bit smoother/quicker. Not great gas mileage adds up at the pump; a larger gas tank would help go longer in between fill-ups. Heated seats are heated using engine warmth so on really cold days, your seat won't be warm until the engine is. Needs a hard drive to store your music - Jaguar should quickly correct. Needs fog lamps.
Overall review: Overall, this is a great car and really glad I got it. The dealership experience was really above average and customer service helped to sell me on this brand. The extra power whenever you need it really helps on the highway. It is very pleasing to the eye, just standing still and gets even better when in motion. One never tires of the appreciative looks you get from fellow drivers when on the road. Passenger leg room could be better. Would accept a smaller truck for four more inches of rear leg room.

The best luxury car on the road by Rafael on 12/28/2011. Trim: 2011 Jaguar XF Supercharged, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Fit and fisnish are second to none. Quiet ride, quick acceleration and tons of power at the top end (You have to get the supercharged or the R for this). Great sound system. Comfortable seats (I opted for the bucket seats). Great warranty from Jag.
Cons: Tons of break dust. Hard to keep the wheels clean. Some minor issues that brought me back to the dealer a couple of times, but they fixed it. The loaner could have been better (I told them I'd gladly come back if they lent me a XKR or an XJ).
Overall review: Grace, sophistication and gobs of power.

2011 Jaguar by Michael on 06/30/2011. Trim: 2011 Jaguar XF, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Styling, power and braking are excellent. Ride is very smooth and even at high speeds it is very quiet and stabile. The paddle shifters and dynamic driving mode really make this vehicle fun to drive.
Cons: Navigation system is antiquated. I had a better one in my 2001 Q45. Sound system also not so good; a co-workers Hyundai has better sound quality and there is no music storage hard-drive.
Overall review: Georgeous car with great driving dynamics, just needs some Nav/Stereo updating

westindiansilk by westindiansilk in Melbourne FL on 06/25/2011. Trim: 2011 Jaguar XF Premium, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The feeling of power and design of the interior, especially the suede headliner of the portfolio package and the wake up sequence when the engine is started.
Overall review: The XF Premium Portfolio Package is elegent yet sporty. The car makes you want to drive everywhere instead of walking. I waited 90 days after buying the vehicle before writing a review to let the initial feel of a new vehicle wear off, however every day I drive the vehicle I realize the beauty and power in the design and manufacturing of the vehicle. It is a must test drive for anyone looking for a luxury vehicle.
