2005 Jaguar X-Type 2.5L 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Review

I love my new X-Type. The car is absolutely beautiful to look at inside and out and a joy to drive. The build quality is excellent. Jaguar doesn't make extensive changes to their vehicles from year to year but simply improves the model, learning from the past. It's AWD system results in a vehicle that exhibites excellent handling on any road condition. The engine is deceptively powerfull. It is not the quickest from a dead stop (drag racing!), but has excellent pull from 30-100 mph, which is where most of my driving occurs. But if you want of pocket rocket you shouldn't be looking at a Jaguar and should consider a Dodge SRT-4 or maybe a BMW 330.

Great Car

2005 Jaguar X-Type 3.0L 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

This is a great car. You must get used to the small size, but it is easy to handle. Has a small gas tank so you fill up more often. Jag pays for some of the oil changes, up to 40,000 miles.

Review

My third jag.previous models being older xj's. The xtype is a very good all weather car particularly in the snow. The a/c can be somewhat overwhelmed on very hot and humid days. Excellent highway ride,well suspended, unlike older xj models,seamless all wheel drive.

Great handling automobile. Other than wind noise, it is a pleasure to drive. Given the length of the wheel base and suspension, this automobile rides rather comfortably. I would defintley buy again.

Review

I read lots of pros and cons on the Jags before the purchase, but proceeded after a test drive. No regrets. The car is quick and nimble. It handles like a dream and has all the creature comforts necessary to survive the speeds of L.A. commuting, along with the parking-lot nature of the rush hour. Kudos to Ford/Jag for refining this model.

2005 Jaguar X-Type 2.5L 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Excellent service from salesman. However, recieved car with 50lbs pressure in each tire (did not discover until after 3 weeks).Should be 32lbs in each tire. Gas Mileage is rated 22/28. However, have not yet done better than 22 miles/gallon (car has 5-speed stick). Vehicle handles very well; is fun to drive, especially on highway with curves. Holds road extremely well. Manual suggests oil change every 10000 miles but was advised to do so at5000 (at my expense).

Review

All wheel drive fully loaded for in the low to mid 30's and it's a jag. What more could you ask for. The C class benz tops out around the same if not more and dosn't even have full power seats of the list of features this car has, all around its a great buy ad a fun classy car I highy reccomend this vehicle having ownded a benz and a bmw the jag blows them away on style and price.
