2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 4dr AWD Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

ed During the few months that I've
owned the Jaguar X-Type, to
say "Pleasantly surprised" would be my
first reaction.
Coming from the Honda Accord, I would
say it would be the same as coming from
a Cadilliac to a Rolls Royce.
Being some what of a car buff, I knew
of the troubles Jaguar had had and
faced in the past.
The car is luxurious yet functional.A
smooth ride but, can be knocked around
without you feeling it.
I can't wait for the first Snow fall,
to experience the AWD in a luxury
automobile.


Best Features

The Interior. The Wood grain appointments, the easy Dials to read, the simple but stylish intrumentation.


Worst Features

A Front Grill as the Juguar S-Type

2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 4dr AWD Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love driving this car! However, when
we purchased our car (used) the check
engine light came on in the first few
days. Over the course of 6 weeks the
light went on and off and the service
station didn't know why and could only
reset it. Also, the driver side door
handle is poorly designed. If you
don't lift up on it just right it won't
release the latch so you can open the
door. It is very frustrating. Also
the boot open indicator occasionally
comes on when driving down the highway,
but goes back off shortly. Overall
though I'm extremely pleased with the
car and still feel happy every time I
get in to start her up!


Best Features

leaper on front, rain sensing wipers, auto headlights, one touch window controls, large truck


Worst Features

DEFINITELY NEEDS 2 CUP HOLDERS in the front! Slightly more legroom in the backseat. Front loading CD Changer rather than in the trunk!

Review

For years I have driven Jaguars and
Have dreaded winter. Despite the low
gear lock out I still had difficulties
in winter. When I brought my last Jag
in for routine service, my sales
person, knowing where I live showed me
a x type and asked me if I would like
to try it out. When we came back I did
not want to give back the keys.It has
all the pleasures of the other
models,but also has the handling for
my climate in Northern New York, where
snow can last in to mid may. I had
some unusual things happen, a stress
crack in the windscreen, and I needed
a new program chip for my navigation
system. All fixed and in a timely
manor,Thank you Jaguar.


Best Features

THE DRIVE!! You are a part of the road.


Worst Features

One more cup holder, see no purpose for the sliding arm rest. Would like to not have to set the logo screen for the navigation system. each time you start the car.

I had to trade it in for a Lexus after
it had spent almost a month out of 12
month in service department.
(transmission failed, electronics,
engine failed).


Best Features

Cheap lease, but still did not worst it.

Review

My 2002 X-type is off white/creme.
People comment on it every time I drive
it. It is the 2.5 with a 5 speed.
Only option was the indash cd player.
I purchased the car for under $29k.
I'm not into gadgets. I wanted a
drivers car. This car is most
certainly in the top for
handling/mileage/aesthetics. Nothing
else looks like it on the road but
other jags. Interior is quite nice. I
added a full wood trim kit, which
really improved the feel inside.
Beautiful. AWD in my state is
essential. The engine is designed to
run at high RPM'S. It is quite
enjoyable to rev this car to 6000k
RPM.very cool.


Best Features

Dont go for the sunroof, heated seats, etc its for sissies. The sound of this car is really cool. Get the base model for cheap, and enjoy a fantastic driving experience thats hard to match for the dollar. Rear seating is quite adequate by the way unless you are a gorilla.


Worst Features

Only improvments should be a) exterior paint quality at the plastic/metal seams. b) Mirrors should be metal/steel/aluminum...not plastic, its tacky GM thing. Rear window visibility is narrow, as with all Jags, dont know what to say to improve that.
