2004 Jaguar X-Type Sedan 3.0 4dr AWD Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought my 1-owner X-Type locally, excellent cond., "Platinum" color, with 116k miles in January after reading all I could on-line & checking with another X-Type owner. Put all new Kumho tires on right away. I've driven close to 2k miles and absolutely no complaints. Super smooth shifting, quick acceleration, very quiet ride - except for hearing the transmission (apparently common) and a little wind noise at highway speeds if I have the interior shade for sunroof pulled back. Parts are outrageously expensive - found local Carquest can get OEM parts for a lot less. Paid $6k & dealer fee. Everyone amazed-beautiful, well-built car for the money!


Best Features

Looks, classic styling, most fun to drive of any car we've owned (Ford, Chrysler, Subaru, Nissan, Honda, Acura, Toyota). Has sealed transmission-cannot add trans fluid. Engine coolant-150k product - clean. Would definitely buy again.


Worst Features

Headlight switch - so used to stem mounted switch, hard to get used to. Adjustable lumbar support.

Review

Fortunately, the Dealer I bought this car from went the extra mile needed to rectify the problem. Besides new wheels and a few other replaced parts, they provided a second new set of tires, again alligned and balanced of course, and I took the car up to 90 on the highway with zero vibration evident, and a whole new ride overrall. Then when I went through my glove compartment to review the Registration paperwork, I found another envelope with my name on it -- inside was cash equal to my first month's paymment. The Dealer carries all highline and next to highline vehicles at bottom line pricing and obviously backs up the customer in regard to the New York State Warranty rules. Contact me at TGGaryVerizon.net if you are interested in knowing more - Good News! The dreaded high speed vibration in the X Type does have a fix. TGGary


Best Features

Wood Steering Wheel, Jag Hood Ornament, Cornering Capability, Fun factor, Accelleration is good.


Worst Features

Let's see the X Replacement with slightly roomier back seat with cupholders, more reliable tires on stock car, more horsepower and a more forgiving allignment set up...

Review

I bought my X-Type new in 2004 and still have it. After over 90K miles there are only two problems - the interior cloth material falling away from the front and read roof posts (like several others have mentioned) and the headlight assembly breaking due to what I guess is the front end stiffness. My dealer in New Orleans has been terrific and fixed the interior cloth issue for free. The headlight repair estimate was quit expensive so I've opted to operate the car with less than perfectly aligned headlights. Overall the car has been one the best cars I've owned in 41 years of driving.


Best Features

Performance, reliability, interior comfort/quiet and appearance after 6 years.


Worst Features

More rear leg room would be nice and a less stiff front end.

Review

My Jaguar 2004 x-type has been a reliable vehicle as far as the powertrain is concerned. It is a great performing car that handles turns with tremendous agility. However, there is a defect with the interior design- specifically the interior peeling from around the windshield and back window. This is documented in many places on the internet. Please check the interior edges in these locations before making your purchase and be wary of what dealership you choose to deal with. When our original dealership closed in Mays Landing NJ we were forced to do business with Cherry Hill Classic Cars in NJ, which I strongly advise you to STEER CLEAR of as they turned the deaf ear on this defect!


Best Features

Handling, Power, Comfort


Worst Features

Customer relations end when the warranty ends in certain dealerships. Spend time in the service department waiting room prior to making any purchase- you may be surprised at what you hear from customers or what you hear the service reps saying to other customers. Stay out of Cherry Hill NJ!

Review

I purchased my 04 certified from a local Jaguar dealer. It has been nothing short of excellent. The car is 6 yrs old and still gets compliments where ever I go. I keep it mostly dealer serviced and it has really not cost me much in repairs. With the select warranty they have fixed the little things that have popped up, but nothing major so far. I like it so much that I am trading it back to the dealer for another low mileage X Type with more options. I was hooked the first time I drove it and the awd system is excellent. I can drive through anything with other cars and trucks are stuck on the side of the road. I wish that Jaguar still made them or came up with a gen II X Type. Hello Jaguar!


Best Features

Interior, radio, exterior looks, comfortable seats, trunk space, awd system.


Worst Features

Stiffer suspension, more hp, R model, blue tooth standard,
