2006 Jaguar X-Type Sedan 3.0L 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Maintenance is the most important thing. Being a certified mechanic, maintaining the unit is not an issue but it's intense. The best thing is the looks you get... precious. The finish is flawless after 15 years. Interior is a little iffy for Jaguar, but it WAS entry level.

Review

I had always wanted a Jag but had heard bad things about them. So after 2 months of looking at reviews, researching the model and even pricing out parts for the repairs that were sure to follow I took the leap. Bottom line is I am very glad I did. Great car and with over 90,000 miles I have replaced a front wheel bearing for $28.00. Great ride Great styling and slightly above average performance.

Review

Major disappointment! At under 30,000 miles and after having kept it in perfect condition, the interior began to literally fall apart! And what did Jaguar senior maintenance manager have to say? She hung up on me when I demanded to know who her boss was since she didn't want to take my complaints seriously. All told - $1800 to get it fixed! Never buy another Jaguar again! Can't wait to unload this one!


Worst Features

It may be at the lower end of the pool in terms of affordability, but does that mean you use inferior products and manufacturing that don't hold up after 3 years of use? Try fixing what should be considered a factory defect instead telling the consumer, "you're on your own" and then hanging up!

Review

We just bought this car and its amazing. The seats are stiff but they are so comfortable. It doesn't really get good gas mileage but its our luxury cruiser. We have been getting about 20.5 in the city. It rides great and drives even better.


Best Features

The seats are so so comfortable. Even the backseat is very comfortable but its a little bit tight for larger people but still nice.


Worst Features

The fuel economy could be better.

Review

Came down to this and a 2007 Mercedes C Class 280 4 matric. I picked the X- Type for a more stylish exterior styling and more interior space. The Mercedes had slightly better drivability and slightly better interior build quality. But the overall styling of the X-type and the super low miles (10K on the X Type v. 39K on the C280) won me over. Both cars handled well and the engines seemed very comparable. I really like how smoothly the Jaguar drives and how comfortable the seats are. The interior space is excellent on this. I have absolutely no regrets about my decision. The overall quality on this car seems solid.


Best Features

- styling - fun to drive - build quality


Worst Features

- Dual zone climate control
