2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 4dr AWD Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My 2002 X-type is off white/creme.
People comment on it every time I drive
it. It is the 2.5 with a 5 speed.
Only option was the indash cd player.
I purchased the car for under $29k.
I'm not into gadgets. I wanted a
drivers car. This car is most
certainly in the top for
handling/mileage/aesthetics. Nothing
else looks like it on the road but
other jags. Interior is quite nice. I
added a full wood trim kit, which
really improved the feel inside.
Beautiful. AWD in my state is
essential. The engine is designed to
run at high RPM'S. It is quite
enjoyable to rev this car to 6000k
RPM.very cool.


Best Features

Dont go for the sunroof, heated seats, etc its for sissies. The sound of this car is really cool. Get the base model for cheap, and enjoy a fantastic driving experience thats hard to match for the dollar. Rear seating is quite adequate by the way unless you are a gorilla.


Worst Features

Only improvments should be a) exterior paint quality at the plastic/metal seams. b) Mirrors should be metal/steel/aluminum...not plastic, its tacky GM thing. Rear window visibility is narrow, as with all Jags, dont know what to say to improve that.

2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 4dr AWD Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

People love to hate Jaguar. You hear
it all the time...."They are not well
built cars, it is just a glamorized
Taurus, and it must be pretty stripped
down for that price." The truth is the
car is absolutely beautiful and a
pleasure to drive. I have had my car
for 2 years now and nothing has gone
wrong. The car has only been to the
shop for its scheduled services and
with the free maintenance plan, I
haven't had to pay for anything other
than gas. Drive the car, buy the car.
You will be glad you did.


Best Features

Styling and prestige. Friends are shocked when I tell them how much I paid for the car (an I only tell close friends).


Worst Features

The stereo needs to be upgraded. The standard system is unacceptable and the premium system I purchased as an option still needs power and an in-dash CD changer.

Review

The car is a lemon. You should never
buy a car the first year out. The car
has had tons or re-calls and is always
in the shop.

The car does not have much power from
the get go.

Review

I looked at the C class Mercedes, the
Audi A4, and the BMW 3 series and for
the price the X type is by far the best
value. Throw in all-wheel drive and it
was a done deal.

The car looks great, handles well, has
excellent braking and rides very smooth
while touring on the highway.


Best Features

all-wheel drive style


Worst Features

$1800 to install the Jaguar cell phone. To add insult to injury, it's an outdated Motorola phone. A better sound system would be appropriate.

2002 Jaguar X-Type 3.0 4dr AWD Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love the exterior styling, the
performance and the comfort. The
navigation system is a real winner for
guiding you to your destination as
well as finding cafe, hotels, etc.,
along the way. The xenon headlamps,
promimity waring system, and rain
sensing wipers are nice touches. The
Alpine stero can simply blow you away.
Although I have dual bike racks for
my X-Type (evidently rare for
Jaguars), I've never used them.
The only negative has been a couple
of logic chips that have had to be re-
programmed. And the navigation system
bumps the exterior temperature LCD to
a place that's difficult to read.
The Jaguar service has been
fantastic.


Best Features

The all-wheel-drive was the reason I first looked at the X-Type. I can report that I've traveled on icy roads on the car that I would never have attempted in any other car I've driven. The AWD is all that it's hyped to be.


Worst Features

A better location for the time/temperature LCD (with navigation system). Also, my X-Type was too early for XM radio - - a feature I would really like to have. I also miss the dual temperature controls I've had on previous cars. The back seat needs a place to plug in a laptop.
