mulberry sale black friday Jaguar XF Reliability
Auto Express’s reliability ratings are based on our Driver Power survey of over 30,000 car owners. Ratings are the average for all owners of this car who responded. Individual owners’ ratings and comments appear below.After spending four years in the top five since the 2010 Driver Power survey, peaking at number two for its debut, the Jaguar XF is finally starting to slip down the rankings.That said, 23rd place overall is hardly shabby. Its ride quality score is best in class, while owners say it’s very easy to drive and a strong performer. It’s not all rosy though, with the descent down the charts accounted for by relatively poor reliability, high running costs and a shallow boot that hampers practicality.The XF2.7D is brilliant to be in and to drive, although the new 3 litre engines give much improved throttle response. However, my car has suffered from numerous electrical gremlins that have included intermittent loss of the cabin systems, including climate, sound and nav, heated rear window and external light failures, and most dangerously,
several times going into limp home mode in lane 3 of a motorway. The dealer has put in many hours on the car under warranty and the problems have been traced mainly to wiring and connectors. My car was one of the first production models delivered and I can only conclude that it was built in a hurry by an inexperienced workforce. The fact that the parking sensors were connected the wrong way round and some fasteners were missing from the engine bay supports this. If only it had been as near faultlessly reliable as my previous S Type. Hopefully later cars are better put together but the experience makes me very wary of buying another.Reliability: 1/5 Build Quality: 2/52008 reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 yearsThe first 18 months were a nightmare with everything electrical going wrong I ended up dealing with the md pa at gaydon and nearly handing the car back. since all the bugs and recalls were sorted the car has got better and better especially since changing to grange jaguar from marshall in cambridge. grange have been exemplary for the past two and a half years. Do not run an xf deisel on a “beer” income. servicing is expnsive, about 1,000 per annum minimum excluding tyres etc.Reliability: 4/5 Build Quality: 3/520Electrical gremlins, touch screen freezes, constant error messages on console, stuck open engine diaphrams nearly killed me, apparantly all known faults! Fuel mpg not quite as good as I thought a diesel would be, extended jaguar warranty I have found is a must and that is an extra 105 per month I didnt bargain for, servicing costs reasonable but seem to be required more frequently than I thought.Reliability: 1/5 Build Quality: 1/5Very good overall. windows dropped in garage on two occasions but no fault was found when car was checked. Fuel consumption is very good on long runs (seen up to 55mpg) but engine is slow to heat up so consumption can be considerably higher on short runs, especially in cold weather. jaguar serving costs are quite high. Since running in town most of the time, reasonable costs.20This is the 2nd car as the 1st one broke down so much the dealer changed it. this current vehicle has never broken down but has many electrical problems that sees me visit the dealer every 6 8 weeks! Due to above it costs a lot to keep it running as a prestige car should be.
