PREMIUM EDITION XF JAG, WELL MAINTAINED, ONE OWNER CAR, VERY CLEAN INSIDE & OUT
Incredible luxury and performance have always been a Jaguar hallmark, and now you can own it for pennies on the dollar with this 2009 Jaguar XF. Still looking contemporary and powered by a burly 4.2 liter V8, this is first-class travel at a discount coach price.
The XF debuted in 2007 as the mid-sized Jag and the styling was suitably subtle and elegant, as you'd expect. There are styling cues from the past (mesh grille) but the car is looking squarely into the future with its smooth contours and sleek profile. The pearl white paint looks absolutely radiant, and despite showing 96,821 miles on the clock, it's been fastidiously maintained and looks years younger than it is. Jaguar's legendary attention to detail shows in the deep glossy paint, the tight panel gaps, and minimal distractions; there's not even a "leaper" hood ornament on this Jag. The front bumper is beautifully preserved and hasn't been bashed by road debris, strongly suggesting that someone always thought this car was special, even when commuting at high speeds. Nice chrome accents, including the grille surround, twin "blades" in the lower grilles, and along the trunk opening suggest opulence inside, and all of the brightwork is in excellent condition.
Jaguar interiors have always been special places, and this XF is no exception. There's leather everywhere, and the designers at Coventry spent extra time wrapping almost everything in soft, smooth tan hides. Plush carpets on the floor add to the hushed ambience, and that's real wood veneer on the dash and door panels. Turn the key and you're treated to what Jaguar calls "the handshake" as the dial-type shifter rises out of the center console and the HVAC vents open up. Glowing instrumentation has a decidedly old-school look and most of the controls are managed by soft touch switches that feel expensive under your fingers. The leather-wrapped steering wheel talks directly to your palms and even the dash pad is a beautifully fitted expanse of brown leather-like material that looks like it cost as much as a couch. There's also a large screen for the infotainment system, dual-zone climate control, heated seats, and a big sunroof overhead. The back seat is comfortable enough for adults and looks to have been rarely used, while the trunk is huge and well-shaped, perfectly for high-speed road trips.
Jaguar's 4.2 liter V8 engine provides effortless power and incomparable smoothness, and when you're just cutting through traffic, it's nearly silent. But in the best Jaguar fashion, when you really boot it, it wakes up and snarls, making the most delightful V8 wail this side of Daytona. It never gets unruly, of course, but this kind of power can be addicting. It's been properly maintained all its life and runs smoothly and competently without issues. The 6-speed automatic transmission has a knack for always being in the right gear and the all-independent suspension rides smoothly but feels buttoned-down in the curves, a trait only Jaguar seems to have mastered. Of course, you get all the electronic driving aids like traction control, stability control, ABS brakes, and things like that, but the hardware behind it is excellent, including a set of brake rotors the size of trash can lids. Modern 19-inch alloys give it a show car look and carry 245/40/19 Continental radials that still have a lot of life left in them.
