Maybe not a characteristic if it is related to this issue dated 19th Feb??

Thanks June16, I'll make my dealer aware if they can't come up with any other solution. Although this fix refers to vibration through the body of the vehicle, the seating and the steering wheel whereas the the driveline vibration is felt through the accelerator pedal when its pressed at 30/50/70mph and through the resting foot on the floor, so maybe not the same defect. It doesn't feel like an exhaust system issue.

The source of resonance and vibration through the car at different revs can be difficult to isolate, so it may not be related, but if it is then it seems it's a pretty straightforward fix after all . . . good find! :)

Mine doesn't seem prone to this, but if it ever develops then I'll save this bulletin for future reference and to show it to my dealer.

when I chatted to the service guy Friday he said peddles steering wheel and floor.

So anything connected to floor would be the same, worth a try though to see if they have actually done this though.

This bulletin was for the overseas-Asian market so vibration is a well known global issue on the XF as well, the dealer did adjust the exhaust on my 2.0D, it made no difference whatever.

Seems it’s now for all markets.

The reason they would be aligning the exhaust and losening the engine mounts would be to reduce tension and remove amplification of engine resonance . A bit like the old box record player with the large funnel output,where vibration/ drone is magnified.

It does show they know this problem exists though.

I suspect there's more than one vibration issue, all requiring different solutions, some of which they don't yet have!

Been a while since i posted on here but i am still having problems with my 3.0D S after 20 months and 50K miles....

1. CD still jams and no fix in sight...
2. for the past 6 months i have had vibration in the 1100-1400 rev range (this is ~40-50 mph in a high gear and is a real pain).

I had my car in twice for a week each time on item 2 and the last time they said they ran in alongside an identical car and that was the same so it is a design feature ;). Does anyone else have this issue or has had it in the past?

Actually yes, my 3.0d does have a vibration at 1200 rpm but it is transient, trivial and disappears quickly, an imperfection, made up for by the silky smooth cruising.
The 2.0d that I had vibrated from 1700 to 2100 rpm continually at motorway speed at least 20 times worse.

Yes mine like this too very slight vibration through steering wheel and pedals at certain speeds have had the usual response from local dealer. "have had it on the ramp beside one just of the transporter and all identical underneath, it drives like any other 2,0l F Pace that i've driven and the steering is unbelievably sensitive to road surface variations" NO NO NO this fault was not present when vehicle was new it developed when it was about six or seven months old, I drove a demonstrator previous to making purchase no vibrations there , who in their right mind drives a demo vehicle with a vibration and then orders one the same. So the questions have to be asked when you go to trade it in for another one and the salesman has a drive round the block and then says very slight vibration there what's the knock going to be or will they be programmed like service department to just ignore it. But what about the Volvo salesman or Mercedes salesman etc etc etc how will they program them to ignore it, on the other hand you keep the car what then a vibration is caused by something that well vibrates, something will manifest at some point in time an earthquake is essentially a vibration and see what they can do, could be a cheap repair could be expensive, the only thing that you can be sure of is that it will take more than three years to show up what then.
