2002 Jaguar X-Type 3.0 4dr AWD Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I just passed the 60,000 mile mark on my '02 X-Type 3.0 with five-speed manual. The car has about all the options, including GPS NAV and the CD changer. I recently had one maintenance problem with the car and that was the coolant thermostat intermittably stuck at about 58,000 miles. It fully convered on Jag's Special Edition warranty. No charge to me. Other than that, the car's been trouble free.
Five-speed manual gearbox. Fuel economy (consistanly runs in the very high 20's on the highway) styling, reliablity. The looks it gets at fuel stops.
Put a five-speed manual in the new ones so I can get another X-Type.
