Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not really a car girl, but I really LOVE this car As a mom of 3, I've owned plenty of practical vehicles over the past 25 years. My priorities were safety, room and affordability. Performance to me was breakdown free driving and plenty of cup holders. As two of my 3 children are now drivers themselves, I started looking more towards what I wanted in a vehicle, rather than what I needed, but still thought something as nice as the Jaguar XE was one more "mom car" away. Then my good friend and co-worker purchased an XE. We travel to a meeting in Toronto together once a month and after the first trip, I was sold. It seems like a small thing, but one of the things I love about this car is that the passenger seat is as comfortable as the drivers. It's always been a pet peeve of mine when the passenger, which I often am, even in my own car, because I don't really like to drive, is short-changed in the seat department! So let's talk about how much I love driving this car! As I said, I'm not much of a car girl. I avoid driving whenever possible. Just not really my thing. Not any more. I've been having such fun driving this car, I go out of my way to find reasons to go out, offer to be the driver in any car pool situations, run to the store myself rather than send my husband or kids. This car handles so well! Things I love: (remember, I'm not a car person, so you're not gonna get a lot of high-tech car speak here.) Performance wise: The high def headlights with the auto hi-beams. Game changer! The multiple driving modes - dynamic mode = awesome. The speed limiter - I've never been a big fan of using cruise control, because you feel like you're not driving. With the limiter, you can set it so you don't get in trouble and still drive the car. The AWD. We live in the north - enough said. The fuel economy. I do a mix of city/hwy driving and have been averaging 36 mpg in my AWD turbo deisel. The turbo diesel. This car has plenty of get up and go. You feel that turbo kick in and you're off to the races. The 8-speed transmission - sooooo smooth you don't even feel it shifting gears. Comfort wise: The leather heated seats are very comfortable. There are many ways to adjust to fit every frame. My husband is 6'1" and I'm 5'2". He's all the way back and as low as it does while I like to sit higher and much closer. The memory seats are awesome! No more having to fiddle around every time we get in the car to get the seat just right. Just push the button. We have the cold weather package - heated steering wheel, nice, heated side mirrors and side window defogger, great. The big one though, full heated windshield! This is huge for me, because being short, I can brush and scrape the back and side windows no issues, but can't reach to scrape the full windshield well without making a mess of my coat and possibly scratching the paint on the car. The backseat is not huge by any means, but it's plenty roomy to carry passengers a short distance. We'll stick to the mini-van for long road trips with the kids. My one beef if the back seats aren't heated. Seems a cheap-out for a car at this level. Tech: Nav system is easy to use and the large screen is easy for viewing. I like the speed limit display. The camera catches the speed limit signs and displays the last known limit in the nav screen. Helpful on country roads. It also shows your next turn in the dash display so you don't have to watch the screen all the time. The hands-free phone works well. The Bluetooth connection is good and the sound is clear. You can receive texts which will display when you stop, or with a push of a button be read to you. Disappointing that you can voice reply to a text through the interface. The radio is great. Offers all the bells and whistles, Sirus, Bluetooth, aux or iPod play. The sound is fantastic, the best I've ever heard in a car. One caveat, if you play certain music loudly, the one tweeter in the door emits a vibration that makes the window control buttons vibrate. They stop when you put your hand on them, and it's only at a really loud volume and a certain pitch, but it happens on both mine and my co-worker's cars, so Jag could maybe look at a better seal or something around those buttons to quell that vibration. Electronic folding side mirrors make garage parking easier. Auto-dimming mirrors make night driving easier. The backup camera is great. The parking assistance, (alerts) works well. The blide spot indicators are wonderful! I'm a scaredy cat when it comes to lane changing on busy highways and this feature has made me feel a lot more confident in my driving. All this and I haven't even touched on just how gorgeous this car is! Classy and sleek. The black metallic paint is drop dead gorgeous. Look closely, it's a multi-colored metal flake and just gleams. The car gets appreciative looks everywhere we go. I couldn't be happier with my choice in this car. I'll never go back to "mom car!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes waking up easier. I'm loving my new XE 3.5t, I'm not a huge fan of getting up in the morning, but as I'm getting ready, I tell myself "at least I get to drive the Jaguar". The power and handling of the EX makes it feel like it always wants to go a little faster and coupled with the fantastic steering and feel, the drive makes my mornings a little less dreadful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice driving vertical All in all my xes is a nice driving vehicle. The points I would touch on are 1. Why does this vehicle have any halogen lights on it? For a 65+k car this is embarrassing. Turn signals, puddle lights, brake lights. It's embarrassing to say the least. My friends have much cheaper audis and even ford's and they don't have a single halogen to speak of... Dissapointing... 2. The high end audio system is really really bad. All you hear is vibrations in the vehicle. It's so bad I refuse to show it to people... The vehicle is a lease otherwise I'd rip it out. Unfortunately I thought going with the high end system would suffice but far from it. 3. Other areas of the vehicle that rattle. Very annoying and really destroys the sense that you are driving a premium vehicle. I've owned many German cars in the past and one thing I'm sensitive to are rattles and how solid a vehicle is. This car is extremely underwhelming in that department. 4.
