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.

"I own this car and purchased it new. It is beautiful, drives like a dream especially in the mountains of W VA and VA. is service regularly with synthetic oil, has 1 set of new tires (Michelin still great), 1 set of brakes & pads. You get amazing comments (which is nice), car is detailed and waxed 2 x year. I would not sell for the suggested price on KBB not enough but close. I would not sell if I could not find another Jag I loved as much. WONDERFUL AUTOMOBILE FOR A SINGLE FEMALE."

"I love my X Type 3.0 JAG. It's been an extremely good car and I haven't had any major problems with it. The styling is great inside and out. I'll be holding on to mine for a while longer!"

"Bored with driving an Accord and needing a wagon for my 90 lb dog I decide to give Jaguar another try. I had owned two in the past, an XJ12 and a V12 VDP. Both gave me a lot of trouble. Last year I bought an X type wagon dealer demo with 19,000 miles. It now has 32,000. The car has a clasic line, great traction and is fun to drive. However it is plagued by all sorts of little problems which I had hoped I would no longer encounter that required numerous trips to the dealership. parking aid not working. Drive shaft bearings had to be torked to stop vibrations at 5,000 rpm. Foul a/c smell. Windshield washer motor stopped working. Inside rear pillar pannel fell off. curtesy lights stopped working. Headlight lamp needded changing. Squeaky steering wheel. If it were not for the excellent service i have received from the Jaguar delershicp which has so far always provided me with a replacement Jaguar when servicing mine I would have given up my car long ago. However the thought of going back to a boring but reliable Japanese import is too much to bear. Jaguar, please try and make a reliable car!!!"
