    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: Looks decent and rides smoothly

    Cons: Fuel economy...or lack there of.

    Classik Car — Love, style and class, totty appeal, perfromance, 4 x 4 ability. Road Handling, Response, Feedback, The Fact It's Better Than A Mondeo, Leather And Wood, Gearbox, Back Seats. Hate, the fact you at first get classed as an old man till the girls see someone young driving it then it changes!!

    Pros: Style, Build, Features, Performance, Britishness, ICE, Leather, Pulling Ability

    Cons: Initial Old Man Appearance!

    Love My Jag — Just love it, a lot thirsty like me but I just love it, It is very comfortable in the cabin, a great place to be 4WD so it handles like a dream has loads of grip The car is lovely to drive, maintenance costs are high, just replaced the clutch and it cost over £1000.00, that did come as a shock but was worth it in the end.

    Pros: its just great

    Cons: How muchpetrol it guzzles

    Mondeo’s Better — Why should I pay more for a car based on a Mondeo that has less room, feels more sluggish, has less responsive steering and has poorer handling? Looks alone won’t save it.

    Pros: Looks, perceived quality

    Cons: Uncompetitive, sluggish, could be better

    I Love This Car!!!!! — THe x-type is all wheel drive, so the handling is really good. Nice ride, definitely made more for a female driver I would definitely say.

    Pros: Great Handling, all wheel drive, fiber opt everything, great stock sound system. Runs on synthetic oil so you don't have to change the oil as often. Under the warrenty you get a loaner jag while you wait, unlike the tischer loaners there's no tag on the bag screaming out "Im a loaner car" lol

    Cons: Very expensive to repair when it comes to parts, not many shops can do work on them.

    Wasn't Impressed By It —

    I had to drive one of these on company business so take a colleague to another store for his assessment on the company training programme. Being the only company car on our site it was the only one I was legally allowed to drive for insurance purposes (can't complain at that eh?) but it was normally driven by the store manager, and at the time I drove it it was only 2 weeks old - talk about pressure! It had nice and smooth comfortable ride, but the acceleration wasn't all that great - I think it was the base level 2.0 engine size. I didn't like the clutch either, it was very springy and took a lot of effort to press with my foot - in fact if felt more or less the same as the clutch in my old Ford Orion! I wasn't very comfortable with parking it either, it's much bigger than anything else I've ever driven and the bonnet is huge so it's hard to make out where the front of the car is. One thing that does stick out in my mind from my experience of driving this is the look on everyone else's faces, you could see they were thinking "how can he afford that" bearing in mind that it was only a couple of weeks old, I was only 22 years old and I was wearing a Tesco uniform! We couldn't resist taking it through the McDonalds Drive-Thru on the way back to our store though - naughty eh? lol

    Pros: Comfortable ride, lots of gadgets to play with

    Cons: A bit sluggish and difficult to park
