2006 Jaguar X-Type 3.0L 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I had always wanted a Jag but had heard bad things about them. So after 2 months of looking at reviews, researching the model and even pricing out parts for the repairs that were sure to follow I took the leap. Bottom line is I am very glad I did. Great car and with over 90,000 miles I have replaced a front wheel bearing for $28.00. Great ride Great styling and slightly above average performance.


Favorite Features

Stereo, handling, appearance

2006 Jaguar X-Type 3.0L 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Major disappointment! At under 30,000 miles and after having kept it in perfect condition, the interior began to literally fall apart! And what did Jaguar senior maintenance manager have to say? She hung up on me when I demanded to know who her boss was since she didn't want to take my complaints seriously. All told - $1800 to get it fixed! Never buy another Jaguar again! Can't wait to unload this one!


Suggested Improvements

It may be at the lower end of the pool in terms of affordability, but does that mean you use inferior products and manufacturing that don't hold up after 3 years of use? Try fixing what should be considered a factory defect instead telling the consumer, "you're on your own" and then hanging up!

2006 Jaguar X-Type 3.0L 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We just bought this car and its amazing. The seats are stiff but they are so comfortable. It doesn't really get good gas mileage but its our luxury cruiser. We have been getting about 20.5 in the city. It rides great and drives even better.


Favorite Features

The seats are so so comfortable. Even the backseat is very comfortable but its a little bit tight for larger people but still nice.


Suggested Improvements

The fuel economy could be better.

Review

Came down to this and a 2007 Mercedes C Class 280 4 matric. I picked the X- Type for a more stylish exterior styling and more interior space. The Mercedes had slightly better drivability and slightly better interior build quality. But the overall styling of the X-type and the super low miles (10K on the X Type v. 39K on the C280) won me over. Both cars handled well and the engines seemed very comparable. I really like how smoothly the Jaguar drives and how comfortable the seats are. The interior space is excellent on this. I have absolutely no regrets about my decision. The overall quality on this car seems solid.


Favorite Features

- styling - fun to drive - build quality


Suggested Improvements

- Dual zone climate control

Review

First Jag ever purchased and I am very satisfied and pleased with its performance. Takes off at the drop of a dime and leaves everything behind it in its dust! Handles a curve in wet or dry conditions superbly. Comfortably seats my family of four including my 6 foot husband. Interior is butter soft and so classy and elegant holds true to JAG reputation. Interior works well with Liquid Silver exterior and mesh grill...heads turn when we drive by for a second look. Love the Sports car feel in a Luxury Sedan! I'm truly PLEASED INDEED with this vehicle and strongly considering buying the XJ or XJ8 for my husband.


Favorite Features

AWD Handling, Seats, Sound System, Sunroof/Moonroof, Exterior Liquid Silver color that really resembles Liquid Silver when in motion on a bright, sunny day and the Sporty mesh grill.


Suggested Improvements

Sport side Spoiler needs to attach more securely to ensure that it does not come off when kicked or bumped accidentally.
