Nice VDP

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

Review

Purchased an elite VDP 3.0 with decked out rims, etc. Happy with car overall. Hit deer going 40 mph and car held up to impact surprisingly well - only cosmetic damage. Very sturdy car (had Volvo previously) - feel safe. Some transmission issues already. Fails to up/downshift causing annoying jerking to ride. Trans seems to slip. Premium stereo could be better. Would like more interior space - need to adjust seats for different size guests depending where they sit. Larger sun visors would be nice. Don't like the center armrest much.

Favorite Features

Status and VIP valet treatment! Easy to drive, handles well and looks sexy. Like the AWD especially in snow. VDP is a nice touch. 17" Rims make the car stand out from the siblings. Steering wheel buttons. J shift. Car's strength.

Suggested Improvements

More interior space. Easier rear seat access. Better subs for stereo. Sun visors which work better. Heavy top down tint on front window. Retire green dash lights. Offer high performance engine like the Super V8. Better transmission. Retractable rear headrests. Less dust producing brake pads.
