Fun to Drive
By Keith on


2005 Jaguar X-Type 2.5L 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I had never considered buying a Jag until I happened to test drive one while my wife was looking for a new car. It took me by surprise how much fun I had driving the 2.5 5 speed manual. Yes the car is not perfect but I think it holds its own against the BMW 3 and Merz C. I haven't had this much fun driving a car since I was a 16 year old with a Camaro. New X-types are a little pricey but a good value can be found with a Certified Pre-owned Jaguar. I ended up buying a 3.0 auto with the sport package. I miss shifting gears but still have more fun than I thought was possible driving a sedan. After 3 months I'm still happy I bought the car

Best Features

Styling, wood trim, leather seats and that distinctive hood ornament. Build quality is good, interior pieces fit well with no squeaks or rattles. Smooth highway ride.

Worst Features

Seat could be a little wider.
