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


Review

I bought my jaguar a year ago used from a hometown dealer. The car only had one previous owner and was bought with 78k miles. i was so excited about my new car and i looked great driving it. The car was such a beauty. i later found out that beauty isn't everything when within the first year of owning this vehicle I've had to replace the starter, water pump and transmission. this car has cost me 7k, almost more than it's worth. i guess it's a lesson learned. I'm writing this review to help anyone anyway i can.

Review

I will never buy another Jaguar. I have owned my car for 3 years and have had it in the shop for countless things (in fact, it needs to be taken in again but I just don't care anymore). Thank God the dealership would not sell it to me without an extended warranty otherwise I would be in BIG trouble. I can't even begin to tell you about all the issues with it. And, to make matters worse, I am trying to trade it in for a newer, more reliable vehicle and I have been the laughing stock of every dealership I have been to. I am about $10,000 upside down in it which is making negotiations very difficult. I will never, ever recommend one of these cars. They are crap.


Best Features

Air conditioning and heaters work well.


Worst Features

Everything. Very disappointed in this car.

Review

I purchased the jag with 56k mi about 1 1/2 yr ago and I was blown away on how well the performance of this car it sounds like an American muscle car when I punch it to pass uphill or entering freeway. It's fast for a V6 and it does roar. Now I'm hooked on jag! The only thing is when I needed oil pan gasket fix it's hard to get into the pan without taking apart everything from the bottom and labor was expensive plus parts $1000. When I purchased it I did not know that it was an AWD and my gas mileage is poor in mix driving but you can get good mileage on the freeway.


Best Features

Stereo system, 6 CD changer, backup sensors and steering wheel controls. Body style the looks dual power seats.


Worst Features

Make all parts from the engine bay easy accessible to mechanics so it will not costs us so much for labor. Why did you stop making the X-Type bring it back only this time make some coupes and make the AWD system an option. Also bring back the cat on the hood from all makes of jaguars we like those.

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


Review

Wonderfully smooth on the highway, with paw like handling on country roads. The manual shift 2.5 gives back performance lost in the automatics I tested - the car will really move with revs kept above 2500.


Best Features

Great styling; excellent paint work and finish; AWD; back-up radar; excellent front seats, rear is adequate; nice leather.


Worst Features

Crammed driver leg and shoulder room if you are taller than about 5'9". Wiper arms need stiffening. Oil-pan leak around 50k miles suggests better gasket design is in order. Similarly, plastic coolant reservoir tank has cracked at 60k miles suggesting poor quality material. Thin floor mats.

Review

This was my 1st Jaguar purchase in the States after having 2 UK models back in Blighty before emigrating to the US. I was dubious about buying a US specification car after enjoying a X- type & a S-type over the pond. My concerns were soon put to bed after I took the car for a test drive. I loved it, despite the steering wheel being on the wrong side. When you sit behind the wheel of a Jag, you know you're sat in a car that all the "others" aspire to match! My wife had been "Japanese cars only" until she drove the Jag. Now she won't even look at anything else. It handles like a sports car, the AWD is awesome, the quality and driving experience are unmatched from anything else out there!


Best Features

The seats are soooo comfy... the AWD inspires confidence in bad weather and the handling is incredible!


Worst Features

Rear seat leg room is poor. With a baby seat you have to move the front seats a long way forward to accommodate the seat. This is NOT a good family car. Go for the larger XJ8 if you have a family, the X-Type is far too small!
