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


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!

2004 Jaguar X-Type Sedan 2.5 4dr AWD Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


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,

Review

Bought this from dealer as a demo with only 1600 miles. Car handles great and has never needed any major repairs. I am upgrading to the new XJ as a result of my wonderful experience with this model. X-type is an entry level Jag but if you want a car different from every other model on the road this is it.


Best Features

Car handles great and no matter where you go people like to see a Jag pull up.


Worst Features

i-pod jack would have been nice, and phone on dash

Review

I was 25 when I bought my X-type, my first "luxury" car after I finished grad school. The car is not perfect as it has been in the shop several times and I've spent about $2000 on little annoyances in just a few months, but I feel safe and its no lemon. Be sure to find a reputable repairman quick! The car is BEAUTIFUL to look at and after a year of ownership I still turn back and look at it. The interior is also nice but the seats are a little flat. Gas mileage is OK and my 3.0 in sport mode picks up pretty well. In sum if you're looking for a true luxury car you may want to look elsewhere but if you're young and looking for a eye-catching ride you can't go wrong with the X-type 3.0.


Best Features

exterior, interior, sound system, nice leather, price


Worst Features

reliability, build quality, seat position, steering wheel position, rear legroom
