Car handles very well and has been reliable thus far. Consumer Reports has it rated poorly so we'll see if the car holds up, but from my perspective the issues that most likely can arise will be technical as there is a lot of functionality in the touch screen panel. Other than that, transmission and other parts seem very sturdy.
I traded it in
2009 Jaguar XFMark - Gastonia, NC07/11/2014
I enjoyed the ride very much but I took the car to the shop too many times. I don't mind the up keep but not each month. I have since then traded up to a luxury great built car 2014 Lexus 250c and enjoying the peace of mind instead of hoping the engine service light does not come on.

When I saw this car on the Carmax lot . . . my heart started racing: Absolutely beautiful, inside and out. But the real fun started during my test drive - this thing is a rocket ship, hit the gas and it goes!
Jaguar has a dubious reputation with respect to build quality - so I was pretty nervous about buying. The extended service contract was the only way I was gonna plunk down the cash. Peace of mind is worth its weight in gold.
I've had the car for a month, and so far so good. I think it's the hottest car on the road, and I prefer this model to the new Jags, which have a weird looking rear end. The car is classic inside and out, and the drive is superb. When I get behind the wheel, I feel like Bond . . . James Bond. And now I order my martinis shaken, not stirred.
