Thought it would be very worthwhile to let other XF drivers know how the jaguar XF performs in a crash situation. I was unfortunate enough to hit black ice on Tues 13th January 2009 on A70 in Scotland. I sustained only a slightly bruised back from the crash and know for a fact that the build quality of the car is what saved my life.
The emergency services that attended the scene were astounded that I had not been seriously injured or killed, stating that it was a credit to Jaguar to have produced such a
car.

I have already sent Jaguar the photographs with heart felt thanks.

Cheers (Glad to be here!!!)

Welcome indeed AMac to the forum :)
It seems that you had a remarkable escape on the 13th and one that you will remember for ever.
I hope that you can get it mended quickly ;)
Seriously, do you know yet what the position is regarding a replacement, will you be waiting for the new model :?:

You don't exactly say who took the photographs but if it was not you, I would be glad if you would attribute copyright to the photographer. :)

Seems a bit of an extreme way to sort out that sticking fuel filler flap... :D

I think it'll buff out :mrgreen:




Glad you are OK
Was going to say, bit of T-Cut and she'll be right! ;) :oops:

But seriously, that's pretty impressive to walk away from that! Reminds me of the photos of that Audi (RS6 I think??) that was competely demolished and ripped in half after hitting a tree, driver walked out without a scratch! Shows how much passenger safety has moved - don't fancy that crash in a mkIII Escort!! :shock: :lol:
