Jaguar XF Saloon (08-15)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Depends who is looking - some find it flash., many like the fact that it has a look that isn't just 'smart' like the Mercedes, BMW or ugly Audi equivalents. People will not let you out at junctions in town but get out of your way instantly on the Motorway.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all like it - Jags seem to lack the blandness of some alternatives. Everyone loves the refinement.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Not sure - need more space but we have a Galaxy as well.

What are you likely to buy next?
Mmm. Would miss the performance and refinement of this one on distances - just drove a thousand miles in one day and arrived fresh - not sure you can do that in many other cars. Might buy another one.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£18,000

When did you buy the car?
January 2014

Did you get a good deal and why?
It was a good deal - the car had only 6000 miles on the clock and was worth far more. It was my dad's and he wouldn't take any more.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Yes - it was my dad's car - he had a stroke and could no longer drive it. Sort of own it as a tribute to him.

What was the dealer like?
-

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I find it fabulous - mine has 275bhp and is really, really fastand seems to out-dreag the German rivals with ease. Steering is very precise and car is incredibly stable. Brakes are awesome and teh gearbox smooth. Best ride/handling compromise on the market.

What's it like to park?
Can be a bit of a nightmare - currently in rural France - their streets are made for Renalults. Rear camera is an essential I think.
