Ascot is my closest Jag dealer  :(

They were quite happy to let me take an XF out, when I went there, and then talk to me about LRs and, really, anything I wanted.. surprisingly very friendly.

That said, the XF (old shape estate) handled like a barge, tramlined all over the place, tried to eat the kerb repeatedly as it wandered.. if they all drive like that, I'd rather drive a Soviet era Skoda.

Surprising to hear that, as mentioned before XF-S is my ideal replacement. (Saloon)

Not sure turning up in a 16 year old Vauxhall worth about as much as mars bar and a packet of cheese & onion would blag me test drive on their used examples.  ;D

Take no notice of that Aaron fella. He drives a 'point and squirt' Cobra that has 500 BHP and weighs the same as a bag cheese and onion. ;) :D :D.

Rest assured that all XF are fine handling cars. :y

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

The XFs I've driven I found to be a nice drivers car, with pretty good feedback and great handling.  No issues with tramlining or wandering or other erratic handling on any I tried, though one had a definite pull left
