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!
