Brilliant! — It is an absolutely gorgeous car, it comes equipped with everything anyone would want. Def a head-turner, but do get it in black - pearl black if you can - with big rims, it's a stunner. very good performance, everything is great about this car, except for the parts costs sometime:). It's not that big of a problem, but it is more expensive then in the case of other car makes.

Pros

Beautiful! Very classy for what it is. AWD is great for any type of weather. Decent gas mileage if you drive it normally. Turns heads everywhere we go.  

Cons

You must rotate the tires at every oil change. (5000 miles) Not as quiet or smooth as our old XJ-40 but it is shorter and lighter.

Great Competition For The Bmw 3 Series But With More Luxury. — We use it mostly for date nights and trips. we have made 1000 mile trips in it and were not worn out from a bad ride. If you drive it lie a sports car then you get the advertised fuel mileage, but if you take it easy it will get 30 on the highway.

Best Car I Ever Owned — What a nice surprise owning this Jag has been. After purchase of this car at the end of a 3-year lease, I was greatly impressed with the reliability -- contrary to the reputation Jags have based on its quality before Ford took over. Now JD Power ranks Jag as the #1 most reliable car company and the 2004 x-type gets excellent reviews.

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

A Costly Price — performance-drives great build quality-don't even get me started. let me know if anyone knows of anything they did right when building this vehicle. (besides the appearance) appearance-beautiful car cost of ownerhip-if you have to fix ANYTHING on this car (which is everything) be ready to fork out entire paychecks at once

Sexy Girl — the car is beautiful inside and out. Drives great, good power, handles beautifully, great for winter with the heated seats! All wheel drive is great in the snow! Radio isn't that loud but sounds crisp. Good acceleration fair breaking. Overall other than the cost of maintenance I love my car will be looking into getting another one with less miles.

Affordable Luxury — Great car taht always turns heads. Some percieve brand as not reliable, but not true after models 2002. Car runs as well as other luxury brands and has very nice features. Much roomier than BMW 3X series. So happy, I am upgrading.

Would Recommend To Friends And Buy All Over Again. — Mechanically, the car is in great condition. The X-Type has to be taken for what it is. More importantly, for what it is not: a 3-Series competitor. But as a reliable AWD sedan that looks like nothing else on the road and is fun and comfortable to drive, there is nothing like it! Performance is adequate and the build quality is questionable in places, superior in others. Trim pieces don't fit just right and the headliner is thin and peels off easy, but the leather is the best in the business and mechanically these cats will run forever. Great, fun, unique car!

Jaguar X-type — Best car i've ever owned. Would have another one tomorrow. Huge boot, lovely to drive, really comfortable and effortless. Not too expensive to run and was exceptionally relaible for the 120000 miles that I owned it for. It's just a pity that I can get another one just yet. Sadly, did quite a lot of damage when I hit a deer a couple of years ago. The only good thing was that the car stayed absolutely straight and kept me on the tarmac. I could have cried.

Good Car To Drive — car has done everything more than expected, tires have been the biggest expense, would recommend this year of the X-type way above any previous years from my experience and encounters; little expenses can add up good to have friends in the business

Jaguar X Type Se — Some people have dubbed this car a rebadged mondeo me included, after driving it on a test run i was blown away nothing mondeo bout this car. 2.0 diesel engine giving an average of around 45 mpg. People say diesels are boring not this one, more horses under the bonnet than the passat i drove previous, amazing!
