May 2008 Amber check engine light illuminated at around 200 mi. Dealer checked all sensors and other relevant potential causes, but none were out of spec. Reset light and we picked it up. It hasn't repeated itself after another 500 mi. Moonroof switch doesn't work reliably, so they ordered a replacement. Squeaked/moaned in the moonroof area from the time we received it. They re-attached clips while it was in for the other issues.

Headliner creaking. This is the second time this problem has appeared. Rattle in driver door. Dealer couldn't replicate it, so they didn't repair it. It still exists. The fuel door recall fix is embarrassingly poorly done. I am very dissatisfied with it. The dealer bent the door back in place, but otherwise left it alone. The right headlight was shaking. They tightened the bolt, but it was still shaking some.  After they looked at it again, they said it was fine; there was nothing wrong with it.

Transmission cooling line developed a leak so both had to be replaced. Transmission is a closed system so specialized equipment that refills the transmission from the bottom is required. Early XF models have a known problem with erroneous erratic false low tire pressure indications showing on the driver console. This car has had the problem for some time. The problem can be fixed with a simple software update to the TPMS.
