2002 Jaguar X-Type 3.0 4dr AWD Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Excellent all around vehicle. Will outclass, outrun, outperform the German cars in its class in any road condition, any weather. I know. I have two other German marques that are useless with the slight pour of rain or snow. Not for the masses. Purrfect car for the Northeast. I really don't care what editors say. Excellent dealer service too.


Favorite Features

All wheel drive, excellent fit and finish, seductive exterior, excellent sound system. Antennaless radio.


Suggested Improvements

Reduce glare on instrument panel

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


Review

Within 12,000 miles the transmission went. I had to be towed via flatbed truck after only 14 months of ownership. The car never had any pep. Now it needs a totally new transmission at 12,000 miles. I should have stayed with the Camry.

Review

This is my first Jaguar and I love it more and more each day. The car is very luxurious, moreso than the bmw, lexus and mercedes we test drove. So far no, problems, but we are worried about the reliability after reading the edmunds report.


Favorite Features

alpine stereo, wooden dash, leather seats, stereo controls on the steering wheel.


Suggested Improvements

only one cup holder, cheap plastic interior.

Review

I would recommend the X-Type for those of use who want a Jag, but don't want to spend a crazy amount of money, and want a sporty car. I wouldn't recommend it for the large family, but for a couple with a baby/child, this is perfect. Note that the back seat can accomodate rear facing baby seats, unlike BMWs of higher grades!


Favorite Features

Powerful 3.0L engine... don't waste time on the wimpy 2.5L...


Suggested Improvements

the armrest slides forward and backward... don't really see the value but it does make it moveable which i'd rather it be solid, and not moveable.
