Jaguar XF Saloon (08-15)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I can still drive a fast, sporty coupe/saloon, without looking like a middle aged sad case

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Most love it, because it looks infinitely better in the flesh than in photos. A few think it looks more Mondeo than Jaguar. Jealous maybe??

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, definitely, but I'll wait for the 2nd generation with the front end from the prototype.

What are you likely to buy next?
Jaguar XF MK 2

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£36,000

When did you buy the car?
February 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
Great deal. Super trade in on my old Chrysler 300c, and almost £10k off the new list price for a 4 month old car.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Massive performance, great fuel economy, and very low emissions. Almost £10k off the list price. Car was only 4 months old, and had only covered 5k miles.

What was the dealer like?
Excellent

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Superb. Very very quick, and with massive torque.

What's it like to park?
Big car with not so good rear vision. Would recommend fitting after market front sensors. You could opt for factory fitted rear camera and front sensor pack, but it is much more expensive, and I found the camera extremely distracting, and the on screen representation rather misleading.

Living with it

Auto open/close air vents
