    Test drove this , wasn't impressed with the engine.
    Good rental price tho.
    Surely better off buying one 18 months old at £18k on a 5 year loan, got to be around the same monthly cost and no mileage limits?

    Quite a few 65 plates on Autotrader from £18k and a loan of that amount over 5 years is about £325/month.
    Getting a diesel for 5,000 miles a year is absolute madness.
    Buying a new diesel now is madness with the the taxes in place and it's only going to get worse in my opinion.
    Been looking for a deal on an XF R for a few weeks now, very tempted by this especially with such a low initial deposit. Thanks.

    Getting a diesel for 5,000 miles a year is absolute madness.



    Is that in regard as to the purchase price being higher versus savings, or that the actual running costs over 5,000 miles is more? All articles I can find seem to talk about higher purchase price, depreciation etc all of which are irrelevant with a lease, like the article below. Am I missing something about the daily running costs?

    PS this deal is priced on 5,000 miles but you can have any amount as long as you observe the 13.08p excess mileage.

    Yeah it's not as bad as a lease but even so it'll be doing so few miles it'll barely get warm, meaning the economy will very likely be pants and I wouldn't like to guess at how clogged up the DPF will get (which presumably will be the driver's problem).

    5000 miles is only 13 miles a day. I don't think you'll see much difference in fuel savings over such a short limit, go for the petrol if you do shorter journeys. I had the XF r sport last year as a company vehicle and it was too loud for my liking.

    Hi, this is my local main dealer rather than an online presence, so may be able to negotiate something locally with here as a back up.

    Best I could see prior to this was around £1,200 down and around £360 a month.

    Thanks for the information, currently have 64 plate XF 2.0d with lease ending at the start of September so just beginning to have a look around at prices etc. The only thing I don't like about it is the engine, the 1 - 2 seconds of heart in the mouth when you get to the first couple of roundabouts in the day when its pick up is so slow.

    Ideally was looking to switch to a petrol, but was hoping the R Sport had more about it, will just have to take one for a test drive - although once in the dealer will have to resist the F Pace at £499

    They're not BAD to be fair, much better than their sibling, Land Rover, and I'm sure better than German and French stuff.

    The Japanese and Koreans rule the roost though in terms of reliability, but many people just have to buy a badge - everyone gets tired and learns the hard way eventually though.

    Already been said in post 15.
    If you are thinking about it but want to go for the higher mileage option - there is no benefit to going for the higher mileage options. The cost is 13.08p per mile so if you go under, you'd save on the 5k miles package and if you go over, you'd have to pay anyway.

    Yep, got fed up with Audi 'reliability', on my fourth Ford now, proven to be very reliable(for me).
    ​Yeah but I thought these cars post 2015 are Euro 6 compliant with emissions level, so these new diesels won't be taxed, right?

    Any option for petrol?


    I did have a conversation via email this afternoon, and they did say they could work out a similar deal for petrol, but I did not take it further as I don't need mine till September, so I have no prices.

    Lol, jump into the F-Pace if possible, sitting higher on the road is a definite bonus. There were some good deals on the XC90's last week if you fancy one.

    Has your XF started rusting? Mine had its cross members start to rust at around the 15k miles mark.

    Whereas my experience of VW has been ultra reliable. My last VW went to the garage twice in the 3 years I had it, for 2 services. 2 previous VW's racked up 280,000 miles between them without a single issue. Ford Galaxy was nothing but problem, including 2 new drive shafts. My Kia is some 5 months old, 3 visits to the dealers so far.

    What I can conclude from this, every manufacturer has problems. Although I would still worry about owning a Jag

    Which Galaxy? 1st generation was mostly VW. Not that I need to 'protect' Ford.
    If I had a pound for every 'my VW went to the moon and back multiple times and didn't even need a bulb'...I used to be a Service Manager with them, I have first hand experience of what they are really like.

    I've seen it all now. A HUKD car thread where someone makes a sensible and factual comment about reliability. Most just repeat whatever nonsense VW marketing department come up with.

    Mine definitely needed the odd bulb or 5, but they're serviceable parts I felt. I realised, my Passat did eventually develop a common fault at 130,000 miles with the drain holes blocking and causing the footwell to leak. Cleared it out myself, let the car dry out and put another 30,000 miles on it before my wife commanded me to get something new for once. I must've been the lucky one with my VW's it looks like.
    I should add, 238,900 miles to the moon, so between those 2 I did manage it, only without wings and rockets.... and spacesuits.... space food.... etc.
