2003 Jaguar X-type With Issues —

This was a very nice looking car, the interior was very nice and leather all around. The interior and body styling definitely said Jaguar, even if it was a baby Jag. I got a lot of comments on it, as I kept it clean and well cared for. While I always thought it was a bit under-powered, with the 2.5L V6, I think the 3.0L would be fine. The AWD system worked quite well and definitely improved traction in the snowy Colorado winter road conditions. The price was surprisingly moderate relative to other European cars of similar size and features. The down side was maintenance costs. It was difficult to get parts for, the parts were much more expensive than the American car equivalents and I had to go to a specialty Jaguar repair shop for anything more complicated than an oil change, which was also more expensive. Mine had on-going issues with the throttle body and the engine electronic systems, particularly fuel delivery systems. Sadly, mine got totaled out as a result of an accident. The damage was not too terrible, but the repair cost exceeded the value of the car, so the insurance totaled it out. Seems the body shop had the same issue with parts availability and costs that I had, and it was just not worth fixing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice body style, comfortable interior, good driving car, AWD helped in snow

Cons: maintenance costs high, 2.5L V6 was under powered, problems throttle body and engine electronics

Stylish! — While the Jaguar X-Type continues to get a bad rap, my experience with my vehicle has been very positive. The maintenance costs are not high and not often. The looks are great and I still get compliments even though it is 12 years old. It has a very good ride for a small vehicle, maybe due to the weight, but very enjoyable on the highway and turnpikes.

Pros: Love the looks! I still get compliments on this vehicle. The ride is great, too!

Cons: Fuel economy in the cold months.

Clean And Clean — Nothing.. I love my car, it gets me around on those nice elegant nights out with my lady. It's a head turner car. The gas mileage is pretty good and it runs great, can't beat it at this time, people should try the Jags more often.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice classy car, looks good

Cons: I can't afford to add another to my collection right now!

Jaguar X Type — Overall its a good car, it just sucks if you have any problems with it, its a fortune to fix. Other than that, its a nice little all wheel drive stick shift and its pretty fun to drive. The interior looks pretty nice with wood grain and what not. Overall its a good car but had i had the chance to make a different purchase, i probably would.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good handling.

Cons: Not to dependable.

Do Not Break The Bank To Have A Great Looking Car — I always wanted a Jag - this is my second one and looking to get my 3rd one. No real troubles over the last 5 years. Last year at around 110K miles - I had to replaced all 4 wheel bearings - which is normal for AWD car. The rest was normal; brakes, oil, cooling......

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: GREAT gas mileage.  Easy to maintain - easy to get maintenance parts on-llne or local parts store.

Cons: Reputation - which is so wrong.  Great car.

This Car Has Sold Me On Jaguars For Life — Great overall car fast, reliable, efficient and fun to drive! We bought this car from New York and drove it over one thousand miles back to Saint Louis I have never had any major problems with this or my other Jag. This is my second X-type and when I sell it this summer I will be looking at either 2008 models or an XF.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability, Power, Handling, Safety and Fuel Efficiency

Cons: I wish they would have made the V8 Supercharged R model

Highly Recommended And Much Under-rated. — I love this car, it does everything. Brilliant secure handling thanks to the 4WD, especially on icy/snowy/greasy/wet roads. Lusty 240BHP V6 and the manual gearbox is a pleasure to use. Extremely comfortable and great fun to drive. It's not really a great beauty to look at and it has been in the garage a few times, but all in all it's an excellent car and much under-rated.

Pros: Driving experience.

Cons: Tyre wear.

Fine Looks, But Don't Ever Buy It For The Performance Or Smooth Ride Because You Will Be Dissapointe — I am about to hit 170,000km and, touch wood, no major issues, except the lousy suspension design...Manual transmission helps the 2.5 liter engine get into motion...and valet parking attendants voted it their favorite car to park when I leave it at the airport.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks are why you own this car....

Cons: The worst suspension on the road. Shocks had to be replaced after 6 montths and it has never been right. Low profile tires and very weak mags resulted in 6 broken wheels

A British Cat — Great performance with a V6 that suits the car perfectly. 4 Weel Drive makes it a great car on any surface, tarmac, gravel, snow or ice. 231 BHP is enough to be first on red lights. Besides that, my car is absolutly maximum equipped.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance and tradition

Cons: Insurance costs
