The Jaguar XF is a large executive saloon produced at Jaguar’s UK manufacturing plant at Castle Bromwich in the West Midlands.  It debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show as the planned replacement for the Jaguar S-Type, and was introduced the following year.  The Jaguar XF comes in a wide range of specifications, with the choice of engines ranging from 2.2-litre diesel engines to 5.0-litre, V8 petrol power.

The Jaguar XF is available from Jaguar’s UK main dealer network as an approved used car.  Jaguar’s official website for approved used car sales will aid in you search for the particular Jaguar XF, searching for availability and location of current used Jaguar XF stock.  Buying through Jaguar approved used car sales will provide peace of mind with vehicles offered for sale with a service history and mileage check, Jaguar UK and European Assistance, a comprehensive vehicle inspection and 12 months MOT, a provenance check, and a Jaguar Approved Warranty.  Jaguar has an excellent reputation for customer satisfaction, finishing in joint 3rd in the overall final league table of the 2011 JD Power customer satisfaction survey.  The Jaguar XF also performed well in the survey, scoring 82.3% against an industry average of 79.4%.

When buying through channels other than Jaguar approved used car sales it is important to find out as much as you can about the history of the vehicle, and it may be best to conduct your own checks into this.  There are a number of service providers offering checks into whether a vehicle has been stolen, written off, or is subject to outstanding finance.  Another consideration if not buying through Jaguar approved used car sales is whether the service history of the vehicle is complete. If the car is still within its warranty period, and servicing and repairs have not been carried out on time and by Jaguar-approved technicians, the warranty may have been invalidated.  The way to check for this is to see whether the cars service book has been kept up to date, and has been stamped with the mark of a Jaguar main dealer or approved service centre.

If the service history is complete and the work has been undertaken by Jaguar-trained technicians, you can be confident it has been done to a high standard.  The Jaguar XF is an expensive car to buy, and remains so as a used car, but the quality is excellent and the list of equipment on all models is extensive.
