2010 Jaguar XF Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 012010

XF 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,670 miles


Jaguar 2010 Xf. Bought the car in early Oct, 2009. In October and November of this year there were 3 occurrences whereby the car 's transmission failed to go into neutral after the brakes were applied to come to a stop. In each instance the stopping action occurred following a low speed travel : 1st parking into a church parking space, 2nd coming to a stop in bumper to bumper traffic on rte 90 near oak park, ill. And last, and most frightening slipping into a parking space on the 7th. Level of the parking garage facing marshall field in downtown, Chicago. In this last situation the rear wheels spun and screeched while I was pressing the brake pedal as fiercely as I could. I came to just a few inches of the retaining wall. I took the car to the dealer who maintained that the car had been test driven and computer tested without detection of a re-occurrence. The dealer further advised that the computer test results were sent to Jaguar and reported back that the Jaguar people had never had any similar reports. The dealer asked that I retrieve the car as no problem was detected. I believe this car has serious electronic or related problems as regards the connection between braking action and transmission going into neutral after the brakes are applied. A few months before the entire electronics on the dash board had to be replaced as the screen monitor went dead. I do not in my layman's mind know whether there is any connection between these two issues. In any event I refused to go back into that car. I asked the dealer to take it back and I was offered $ 36,000 for the car. I paid $ 59,674 for it just a year or so before. Someone I know suggested that I could have gotten somewhat more by selling it privately, but I did not want to have it on my conscience selling a dangerous vehicle.. the dealer bought it with 3670 miles on the odometer. According to the document, the consumer stated the vehicle would accelerate when coming to a stop. Updated IVOQ 01/19/11
