Jaguar X-Type

Jaguar X-Type

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 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!"

"I bought this car second hand from a private seller and have had it for two months now. So far it has been a very satisfying drive. No issues so far other than an intermittent flashing battery warning light which eventually went away. Drive is smooth, corners like anything and could actually get you a speeding ticket (especially in Sport mode) if you don't watch the speedometer. Very nicely done interior and exterior styling that definitely turns heads. Good stock audio system. Lots of safety features that makes me feel confident on the road even with the entire family on board. Road noise is noticeable though unlike some other cars I've had (and I've been through quite a lot). Unless you have a nearby Jag dealer, then parts may be a challenge (luckily I've got one close by). Preventive maintenance is the key here as in all cars. Overall, I think it's bang for the buck."

Pros: "Unusual vehicle Jag Wagon. Lots of looks."

Cons: "No place for CDs. Back seat a little small"

"Love at first sight. We were looking for something a little different and found it in our X3. Gets alot of thumbs up on the highway and curious looks until they see the leaping Jaguar on the hood. Then we see the passengers in the passing vehicle point and smile. Has a sports car feel. A little more road noise than I would expect from Jaguar but acceptable. The seats however are horrible. There is a lump in the middle of your back until the seat softens and your back eventually conforms. We almost did not purchase the car but the dealer ASSURED us the stiffness would disappear. Eight years later it is still there. We have taken several trips to Michigan and Washington DC area with no great discomfort. Dash instruments reflect a lot of light and sometimes hard to see if passenger wears something light colored."
