Pros

This are under appreciated cars, mostly because they are discounted by Jaguar purists for its Ford Mondeo roots.  However, this is a great AWD car in both handling and comfort and its Jaguar designed engine 3.0L gives it plenty of power.  A bit noisier than a big Jaguar sedan, but quieter than its contemporaries.

Cons

Would expect better fuel economy.

Fantastic Small Sedan With Classic Jaguar Looks — I bought this car when I moved into the hills and needed an AWD car for snow. It proved to be not only an excellent car in snow, but also once I got used to the AWD, a great handling car. Had great fun with it, but sold it when it was no longer being used by the family.

A Great Car And A Good Investment! — I like the style, the power and its good resale value! I dislike the high end maintenance, but you get your money’s worth and it pays off in the long run! The headliner needs to be replaced more quickly than other cars (8-10 years) and the panel on the driver’s door may get a bit loose with time, other than that the car is a keeper – we are upgrading to a 2012

Classy — it's very comfortable in long trips, respectful amount of torque and horsepower for hard overtaking situations specially while carrying some load. maintenance costs a fortune and spare parts are very hard to find. it's very enjoyable on snowy roads thanks to a marvelous X drive system.

It is pretty fast for a four door sadan

Cons

It doesn't like the cold

Over-all Very Happy With This Car — We get excellent gas millage, better then the new cars today. I love the back up sensors, the safety features are great if you have children. All the windows, including the sun roof have a safety feature, if you stick anything in the window while rolling it up it will automatically go back down. It is the easiest stick shift to drive--very smooth shifting.

Pros

Looks decent and rides smoothly

Cons

Fuel economy...or lack there of.

45

2002 Jaguar X-type 2.5 Liter — Performance: Car could use some more horsepower, it'll get up and move but the power zone is more towards the middle of the gear; you won't get any real pick up until after 3K rpms. Braking is good and handling is alright. Build quality: It acts as though the seal around the door is broke. It keeps water out but sounds loud and acts like the wind is whistling through it. Appearance: All around it's ok, it's not gorgeous and it isn't ugly. Cost of ownership: PAINFUL, the gas mileage is lacking....seriously lacking, then there is the fact that anytime you have to have the car looked at it's going to be over $100. Fun factor: It's fun...if you're looking to rub it in to a friend that you have more money than they do, but if you want to beat them in a race, get something with more power cause this car is a old man's car.

Pros

Good size, nice dash and button access layout, handles very well, AWD is a plus. 2.5 engine is good balance of power and fuel efficiency. The exterior design with its body lines really keeps the car from looking dated.  

Cons

The ride can be a bit on the stiff side. I would like a bit more cushion ride.

Summed Up Its A Great Balance Of Car For Me. — Love my Jag, it suits me and my life style perfectly. The size is perfect with the comfort of taking out friends with its spacious passenger compartment, yet compact enough to feel the sporty aspect of the car. The handling is awesome and the 2.5 is enough power for me.

Very smooth running V6 with plenty of high revving power.

Non-Factory rebuilt transmissions fail too easily.

Jaguar X-type — Excellent handling. Absolutely erases snow and icy roads in winter. comfortable on long trips. 23 mpg City, 30.5 mpg highway, very good for a 3,600 lb car with all wheel drive. These are known to have problem with water intrusion onto and into the EFI computer due to improper reinstallation of or broken scuttle cowl. This causes loss of throttle input, message center reading DSC failure, transmission fault, & cruise not available. Easily fixed by correctly sealing the scuttle to tightly seat against the passenger side windshield with clear silicone under the scuttle.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

She's classy but also fierce =)

Cons

The coolant system. Plastic pieces =(   I have replaced the entire coolant system. To be fair it is an older model so it's to be expected over time.
