It's a good car; don't listen to haters

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


I have owned this 2.5 sport since late 2002 and have loved it. Ok, it isn't the fastest car on the planet bu the 5 speed manual makes driving the 2.5 liter a heck of a lot of fun. The ESC is a must-have and keeps this AWD car in control in all conditions including the icy conditions here in the carolinas during winter. Let's be honest here....this car has had some issues but I must say that the local dealer has made service a real pleasure. They offer free loaner cars with all service (including the scheduled maintenance which includes oil changes). I am looking forward to purchasing the new 3.0 2005 sport model. Do not listen to the haters...this car is fantastic!

Best Features

curb appeal (the metallic quartz is a looker ) standard full-time AWD, EBD, optional ESC, and the free scheduled maintenance with loaner is excellent...BTW mercedes no longer offers free scheduled maintenance (they now charge for separate plans)

Worst Features

less plastic in the interior, better gas mileage (a supercharged 4 cylinder would be nice)
