2007 Jaguar X-Type 3.0L 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
At 87K miles most would expect all parts of the powertrain to be intact but not with the X type. The dealership tells me I need a transmission, axle, transfer case along with water pump. I just fixed the wiper motor and the engine is pinging. I thought I just got the trouble car but I learned the transmission went out on 2 other owners I talked to in the Jaguar waiting room. No wonder they offer only a 50K mile warranty for such an expensive car. The one thing that hurts so much is the value drops like gravity. I owe 20K on this car and it looks nice and all but is only worth 11K according to KBB. Consider yourself warned. Stay away from this car.
Interior finish looks great.
Transmission, 100K mile power train warranty, water pump reengineered, more backseat room, should have less road noise.
