A very warm hi to all fellow Gearheads.
Have not yet introduced myself on the forum, will do so in a while. I needed advice first so, went ahead to ask for the same.
I am planning to buy a Jaguar XF 3.0 diesel. Many people have advised me against it for reasons I cannot agree with.
1. The ground clearance or rather "it's very low, will pose problems".
2. The Jaguar/Landrover sales & service is hopeless they say.
Now, I test drove the XF and it didn't seem to pose any problems regarding ground clearance on my city roads which don't even come closer to being good roads. It drove well and responded quite nicely on the roads I drove it on: bumps, potholes, breakers et al.
Coming to the after sales & service part, I honestly don't know about it being good or bad though I was much impressed with the sales guys. Have been offered a decent discount on the price as well.
It's the interiors, mainly, I fell for of the car; drive selector pops out, ac vents open up on pressing the start/stop button, interior lighting and stuff. Not to forget the rich leather cladding all over.
Will appreciate the valuable suggestions of the members on my querry. Thanks.
