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


Review

This is a very good car, which is comparatively cheap if you stick to the base model, which Motor Trend describes as surprisingly quick. I bought it because of good initial reviews, including a very positive one on the Edmunds web site. Then I was distressed to see Edmunds reverse itself with an extremely negative review. More recently there has been a grudgingly neutral review, which still describes lower speed statistics than the ones in Motor Trend, Car and Driver,etc. How can Edmunds be useful to buyers if they keep contradicticting themselves?

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


Review

This car defines sporty luxury. It is sleek, powerful, refined, fun to drive and perfectly balanced (can you say "become one with the car"?). I have yet to approach the handling or performance limits of the 3 liter/manual combination. But I can tell you that this car is truly fast and very tossable when you want it to be. And the AWD provides remarkable and reassuring traction, especially in the rain. Combine such performance with the Jag's beatiful form inside and out, and it's clearly the class act of luxury performance cars.


Favorite Features

The 3.0 liter engine, which can either purr or growl like the cat the Jag is. The manual is the only way to go. Also love the AWD, xenon headlights, leather, and foglights that can be turned on with or without the headlights on.


Suggested Improvements

This car could easily handle even more horsepower. The 3.0 should be standard, with a supercharged or 4.0 version as an option. Also, as many have noted, a car in this price range SHOULD HAVE MEMORY SEATING. I also concur that the trunk latch, when open, poses a threat to one's head.

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


Review

Had the car for about a month. No problems with it. Had at least 10 people (unasked) tell me how much they loved the looks of the car. The interior is typical Brit; gorgeous and aromatic! Great lease deals going on; interest rates about 1.6%, and good discounts. Early reviews in Edmunds probably didn't help residuals (not that Jags are very good residual-wise anyway)

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


Review

I took delivery 3 months ago, have put on 4500 miles since with NO problems whatsoever. My Jag handles great in the dry, and will outhandle anything in the rain! 2.5 Litre motor needs to be in the right gear for max power, but has a very wide powerband, and IMO is equal to the BMW 6 for smoothness and refinement.Frankly, I dont understand what people are talking about with the interior and quality issues. My car is rock solid, and the interior (and exterior) is better finished than Mercedes and/or BMW. I got my car delivered with flawless paint, leather seats, birds-eye maple dash, all wheel drive, 5 speed manual trans, and a 6 disk CD changer for exactly $31,000. Eat your heart out.


Favorite Features

Handling, Interior trim and finish, Engine, It's a Jaguar!


Suggested Improvements

Make more options available without pricy packages

Yes, it's not an $80,000 luxury car but it's still a Jaguar. It's fun to drive, handles well, looks great and I have no complaints.

If you are looking for a fun car to drive and service beyond exceptional jaguar has it in the x-type. The handling is unbelievable. The more I drive this car the more I realize I truly found the car for me.

Review

X-Type is solid and a great performer. We looked at BMW-3, Mercedes C, and Audi. The Jag handled and rode better than all of them . It's plusher inside and the ride was very solid. Definitely drive one !!


Favorite Features

J Gate shifter, Plush interior, all wheel traction system, beautifully crafted with a gleaming paint finish.


Suggested Improvements

could add memory seat feature
