Buy new every four years

2003 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 4dr AWD Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Bought my Jag used with 12,000 miles. Dealer gave us two new tires. At 22,000 had to replace all 4, this was with proper rotation schedule. Needed brakes every 30,000. It has always hated cold weather even though it was garage kept. Major hose repairs at 30,000. New battery at 60,000. Key fob still unlocks, up close. Driver door lock system had to be replaced. Drivers door panel fell off due to broken clips, twice! Not to mention the constant repair of the passenger side defroster vent so it would not rattle. Also found rust starting on hood, almost one year after rust warranty has ended. Have 78,000 miles. The engine light is on again. Trading this week. What a relief! Kept 'cause no payment.

Best Features

The color and styling was awesome!

Worst Features

More interior leg room and head room. Jag dealer should extend warranties to cover piddly junk that falls apart constantly!
