Great Grand Tourer
I bought the car new in December 2011.Total gearbox failure after 3 months,replaced under warranty.Various squeaks and rattles in the dash which however the dealer could not “replicate”.DPF is the bane of this car,it will fill up and cause limp home and possibly require regen at dealers within only a few hundred kms of city driving.You simply must blast out on the highway frequently otherwise it will drive you mad,and broke.DPF cleaner additives do seem to help though.From time to time,the electronics act up and cruise and stability control wil...l disappear and false alarms will be given about no emergency brake nor park brake.This tends to happen in very hot weather,above say 33c,and the car repairs the problem if motor turned off and left to rest for about half an hour or longer.A more worrying matter is throttle suddenly cutting out usually at low revs at low speed,I am used to this and matter is instantly addressed by complete removal of foot from accelerator for a split second.This is intermittent and one can go months without it happening.It is an idiosyncracy I have learned to live with and my excellent mechanic has no idea what the problem is.I need to emphasize,this car loves the open road.After a good long run in the bush,these niggles completely resolve for months. The car ages beautifully,like wine.Without particularly good care,it still looks new,testament to the quality of its materials and build.The squeaks and rattles have not increased but disappeared.It is fast,smooth and reliable and is a joy to take it on a long road trip,which is its forte.I mean the Eyre and Stuart highways sort of trip.Its fuel economy is astonishing,5litres per 100 kms at 100 kph on open road and moderately loaded.The MY 2012 is one of the last which has the abundance of wood and leather which is an absolute joy.Newer ones are cheaper for a reason! At 90000 kms the shocks are developing a bit of weeping and will need replacement this year.Hardly remarkable. I have learned to live with a few niggles which are minor and am enjoying this car more and more.I cannot say that about any other car I have had,especially after 8 years.But forget it if you plan to use it mainly for urban driving.
Purchased in December 2011 for $105,000.00.
Lacking USB outputs
Having waited from age 17, I am now 78, to own a Jaguar I was very excited when I picked up my 2015 R Sport model. With only 5400 km on the clock it was virtually new! blame myself for not asking all the relevant questions, but as they related to accessories and as this IS a prestige car they did not at the time seem worth asking. When I got home I couldn't wait to try out the media system. I gathered up some of my CD's and headed to the car waiting patiently for its new owner. I switched on the ignition selected a CD and looked for t...he slot. Search as I may I could not find the disc input. I rang the number of the salesman to enquire, I thought there might be a multi disc stacker hidden somewhere. I was put on hold while he went to find out. No cd player I was informed when he finally came back to the phone. I called Jaguar Australia. No we dont put CD players into our cars anymore as people want to play music stored on their phones. Really? That's very presumptuous of you Jaguar. That means their phone has to have a lot of memory to store 30-40 discs. Also it means the phone has to be plugged in continuously to when on a long drive to ensure the phone remains charged. USB outlets? One USB output in the centre consol and one cigarette lighter outlet. No USB outlet in the rear unless the cigarette lighter with an adapter is utilised. Most cars these days, and I am not talking about prestige cars, have 3-4 and also cigarette lighter out lets as well. I cannot believe Jaguar consider this to be adequate. I can tell you a Jaguar AU, IT IS NOT! Also one cannot turn off the engine and sit in your car and listen to the radio, because it automatically turns off after out 5 mins even on Auxiliary. Little wonder your sales are so low. The result of this pathetic number of outlets is that cable plug into the centre consol is squashed when the lid is closed or one has to drive with the lid up. Also cables trail across the interior if a dash-cam is in use, I shall be going back to Japanese cars after this. It was a long wait to be so disappointed.
9 Year old Jaguar 3.0 Twin Turbo Diesel with 53k on the clock...MAGNIFICENT!
I purchased a 2010 Jaguar XF Sport Luxury about 2 months ago. With only 53,000kms on the clock, this car is pristine and drives, looks and handles like a brand new car. Super impressed with its fuel usage and the ride is smooth as. Best early 50th Birthday present to myself...EVER! Well done Jaguar...this car is a luxurious Big Cat.

Good value for money
Yes its not in an economy car range, but amongst other car in it’s league, we have to say Jaguar XF Diesel 2014 is the best. 5 year warranty with full road assistance from Astral Jaguar and NEVER give us problem. It drove well in wet rainy weather, mileages are awesome and drove like a ort car instead of a sedan.

Beautiful vehicle, good fuel efficiency and quality finishings
I bought my MY15 X250-series Premium Luxury 2.2d Jaguar brand new in early 2015, and haven't regretted the purchase since.
The black pack with aerodynamic pack styling looks phenomenal combined with the 20" Kalimnos black rims. I chose to upgrade the interior with carbon fire trims which also look amazing.
In terms of fuel efficiency I couldn't ask for more - I drive several hundred kilometres per week for work, and the 2.2d engine has kept my fuel costs under control. I average about 6.3 litres per 100km according to the trip computer.
A good choice
Purchased MY11 3.0 twin turbo diesel Luxury six weeks ago with 67K on the clock. No post purchase remorse. Excellent ride and very well appointed generally. Having 202 kw power and 600 nm of torque, there is enough under the hood to satisfy most drivers. Have owned an X Type and a BMW 525, the XF is superior to both. A good choice and someone else has paid the depreciation on a car with a long life ahead.
Mid-high-end luxury sedan
I like the interior of the car and the design is very beautiful.
3.0 's displacement Driving experience is great, with 2.0 of the displacement speed of the engine a little insufficient.
security can be very good overall, leg space is a little short, Jaguar XJL space is very large, more suitable for people with demand space.
Oh my God...why didn't someone tell me about this car??????
Superb in every aspect its about the most perfect vehicle I have ever owned...its the first of the green Jag's too ….seriously I get 3.8 ltrs per 100. Mind blowing economy...and power to blow away any v8 petrol pretender.....wow. Who didn't let me into this secret before? Wow wow wow....am so please I bought this beast.
Smooth and luxurious
Purchased a used 2011 Jaguar XF Luxury v6 recently and it really does feel like a brand new car. Excellent auto transmission with supurb gear changing. Road handling is fantastic. Quality all the way so far. I read a lot of reviews prior to purchasing and I feel confident this will be a great car for years to come.
purchased second hand 2009 XF Jaguar
Drives beautifully, very comfortable. Warning light for everything. It is good but annoying when a light come sup that you are running out of coolant or washer fluid etc. But otherwise very happy.It makes no noises, The servicing is very expensive and a local repairer in Condell park is hopeless . They put grease marks on he interior.
