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.)

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.

X Type All Wheel Drive. — A W D great fun to drive though a bit hard on comfort, good MPG (35 at moment) holds road like a train, got the winter spec, front heated screen, heated seats etc. not as comfortable as my S type but 50% more economical and handles better.

Awesome car

Cons

needs a heater core, but can't find one.  Car was made by Ford in 2004 can I get a heater core from a ford.  I heard many of the parts were interchangable.  Which model ford would I look for.

Beautiful Looking Car And It Rides Like A Dream — I have had this car for 6 or 7 years now and it has been trouble free. The first problem I have had with it is the heater core and can't seem to find an aftermarket one anywhere here in canada. Not bad for owning it this long and this is the first thing to go wrong.

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!

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

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.

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

Pros

available five-speed manual, unmatchable Jaguar looks

Cons

interior material quality, highway exhaust drone

A Gorgeous And Enjoyable Around-town Driver — Terrific for turning heads, and a steal if you can find a low-mileage one like I did. Performance is definitely good enough to make driving enjoyable, but acceleration can be a little sluggish and I could deal with a bit firmer cornering. On the other hand, the ride is silky smooth. Build quality seems to be excellent where it really matters, but a few interior parts are below grade. The exhaust note gets tiring at highway speed, and it's rendered more noticeable by the fact that very little other sound enters the cabin. Recommended, but with caveats: Be aware that the (standard) AWD system reportedly doesn't hold up well to aggressive driving and that, in spite of its relatively modest rating of 198 hp, the 2.5L V6 drinks premium fuel.

Sweet — I like my Jag because its sweet, nice and its of course my favorite color, GREEN. It can go fast, altho I have not really tested it to go there yet, as my hubby he'll tell you it does, plus how many speeding tickets he has gotten as well.
