hi

in my city where i live; 20 owner of SV8XF complain about thier car that the car is slow and not fast ( im working in darg racing car tests (

some reported from 0-100 in 6 second and best is 5.6 second

I ve tried to investigate the problem where i got hand to test 10 of these car

the cars accelerate from 0-92 ( 60 mph ) between 4.9 to 5.1 which is very fast

but the problem is from 92 to 100 it takes maybe between 0.6 to 1 second to reach 100

Thats mean there is big problem in Gear programing

Dont get me wrong ... most car magazine test the car from 0-60 mph not 0-100 kh

Also i know someone who has V8 XF and he said to me from 0-100 in 7.3 second ... very slow

Any one suffering from this isuue ??

Hi XF-R2009,
Welcome to the Forum :)
It would be helpful to everyone if you would enter details of your car and location in the Profile section.
I suspect that you are not in the UK and if that is the case then it may be a while before you will get a response to your particular issue. The V8 is a car which is not widely seen here, mostly we have the 2.7 Diesel. Also, I presume that your car is the 4.2 V8 Supercharged which I have to say I have never seen :)

Mines a 4.2V8 but not supercharged. I haven't timed it, but I've no complaints about the speed from 0-100. To me it goes like a rocket. The SV8 must be even quicker, anything around the 7 sec mark isn't too bad....... is it? :shock:
