2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 4dr AWD Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I bought my X-Type used a little over two years ago. I have loved every minute of it. I have not had any reliability issues with the car at all. I have only had it in to the dealer for routine service. Also, the 2.5L V6 has more than enough power for daily driving. Before I bought the car, I had read several reviews stating that the car was underpowered. Unless you're buying this car to do drag racing, this is not the case. I find it has as much, or even more power than my last car - a Infiniti I35 with a 3.5L V6. The X-Type's AWD system also has a leg up on the BMW 325xi. This is a great car for the price!
The Sport Package was the best buy. The sport seats and suspension add to the car by leaps and bounds. The AWD system is incredible. The overall looks of the car distinguish it from it's other European competition.
Simple features like a standard monochromatic rear view mirror. Also transmission can lurch when shifting into passing gear.
