The Jaguar XF is an impeccably tasteful, yet relatively eccentric midsized luxury sedan. This low-slung Brit is also among the sportiest in its class. Agile handling and lively steering make this cat capable, nimble, and fun to drive. Several idiosyncrasies separate the Jaguar from its competition, including distinctive coupe-like styling and futuristic, if not flamboyant controls.

    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.
