About Jaguar X-Type

The X-Type has never quite lived up to Jaguar's expectations, at least not in the U.S. Designed to go head-to-head with the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series, the X-Type has not had success bringing younger buyers into the Jaguar fold, at least partially due to its somewhat reserved styling, lofty price tag and middle-of-the-road performance. While both the Audi and BMW have undergone complete updates since the X-Type's introduction, the current model soldiers on for 2008 with the same exterior and interior, as well as the same V6 powerplant and all-wheel-drive layout. Available in sedan and wagon forms, the 2008 Jaguar X-Type may not be the ultimate sport sedan, but it can provide a bit of Coventry style and flair at a price most social climbers will find agreeable.

Pros: "Awesome to drive!"

Cons: "Single cup holder. (Corrected on the 2004 model)."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I am the second owner of this car and have had it for 6 years. It is the 3.0 L V-6, Jaguar Racing Green with Sand interior, and the extra interior wood trim kit. It currently has 81,500 miles on it. I would recommend this car to anyone, and if they still made it, I would buy another. This is the fastest car I have ever owned, and holds the road with all the grip anyone can ask for in all kinds of weather. I live in the Chicago area and have driven this car everywhere in rain, snow (including blizzards) and dry weather. This car has been a Blast to drive. My only complaints are that the trans slips occassionally,(and that may be due to my driving habits), and the particular rims on my car seem to bend quite easily. (All have been replaced, and another one is bent!) However,the engine is still going strong and the repairs have been neglible. (Oil changes are done between 3000 - 5000 miles.) The paint still shines like new! The seats are a bit hard for long trips, there is only ONE(???) cupholder, and the cabin noise is more than it should be for a car of this type, but those things are easily overlooked when I see that "Leaper" on the hood. I love this car and have gotten many compliments on it. And it still does 0 - 60 mph in 7.2 seconds!"

"I got my '04 X-Type 3.0 two years ago and it's been the best car I've ever owned so far. I did, however, have a lot of small cosmetic issues with the vehicle when I first purchased it- the air vent near the front windshield rattled loose, the gas tank wouldn't open, and my door panel was loose. But the Jaguar dealership I bought the car from did an excellent job in handling all of those issues at no cost as well as removing a dent. I needed this car for the AWD it offers in snow and it's lived up to that tremendously. The worst part about the car is it's rapid depreciation as my mileage increases. Overall, great car!! ** Buyers beware! I wouldn't buy any model older than the '04. The salesman admitted to me that they had a lot of problems with the '02's and '03's! Just thought I'd throw that in there as well"

"Bought 04 X-type 3.0 for wife to replace problematic Pontiac GA. This car was worse. It never left us sit, but small stuff keeps breaking and big stuff( water pump, prop shaft, axle seals, transfer case, shocks, struts) keep wearing out long before their time. After just 78K miles, have replaced most everything under the car except engine and actual transmission and on fourth set of tires. And the A/C compressor isn't sounding good. Exceptional on ice and in the snow, very comfortable and easy to park. My elderly infermed MIL raves about how easy to get in and out of. The car is like dating a supermodel: great to look at, but really high maintenance."
