The ride is harsh to the point where the car is unsuitable for journeys more than 30 minutes. The 8 speed gearbox has been programmed for economy so it will often be shuddering along in a gear thats too low - can't see it lasting long !
Its more of a misguided track car than a road car - it looks like a luxury car but definitely isn't one. It wouldn't be bad if Jaguar fixed the design issues but I doubt that they will. The 3.0 engine is nicely refined (the 2.2 is rattly).
