The XF drives very nicely, with agile handling and a comfortable ride. Steering is quick and communicative. The standard V8 provides effortless acceleration and sounds great, but the car is no quicker than some six-cylinder competitors. We got 20 mpg overall on premium. The snug interior is nicely trimmed in wood and leather, but the coupe-like styling cuts into rear-seat room and access.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
