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

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very comfortable and lots of power to spare!

Cons: It may get expensive to repair if it is not maintained regularly.

Jag — With custom mods 0-60 in 5 secs, AWD grips in any condition Nothing beets luxury of jaguar, even to simple wood trim Exterior as any other classics jag except has modern feel and performance Maintenance is something which is hassle, yet if you are knowledgeable about cars then its a breeze save alot on DIYs. But with the right mods Y x-type goes 32MPG HWY

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

Pros: Class

Cons: maintenance

Would Have Another One In A Heartbeat. — Awesome drivers car. Felt as solid and well built as any German marque and had the big cat kudos (despite being a Mondeo really). Refined and had excellent road manners. Servicing was reasonable but I had the 19" wheels on Sport Premium package and the tyres were expensive to replace.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Refined and reliable

Cons: Poor headlights.

Before You Buy A Benz Bmw Saab Ect Look At The Jags — I love this car, its a 2.5 v6 all wheel drive sports, the acceleration of it is fantastic and it handles spot on due to the awd. The only down side to it is the 18.5 mpg all so due to the awd, i like the looks of it inside and out and think it looks well in silver.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: it gives you the WOOOAAAHHH factor

Cons: you need an ever open wallet

Jag — Performance is ok to be a diesel engine. But not as good as a petrol. Cheap to buy, drive and maintain. Only 0.5 l/km is good on the 2.0 Diesel. Fun car to drive, just perfect in the corners and drives like a RWD.

Pros: Fuel economy

Cons: Just a mondeo in a fancy dress.

Jaguar X-type 2.0d Xs — The car accelerates well for a diesel, corners very well with the 18" wheels and has been 100% reliable throughout my three and a half years of ownership. The build quality is very good and after forty two thousand miles it still does not have any interior rattles which is suprising.It is good on fuel and if driven sensibly i can go to london and back twice on one tank of fuel, which is about six hundred miles on about sixty five pounds of diesel.

Pros: LOOKS WITH BODYKIT AND BIG WHEELS

Cons: DEPRECIATION, BUT THAT DOESNT MATTER IF YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP IT LONG TERM.

The X Thats More Equal Than The Others. —

The Jaguar X-Type sport was a limited run car that my father purchased in 2005 from Mellenium Motors. The car is black with 18 inch alloy rims, real carbon fibre trim, black leather/suede seats and black interior. The performance of the car is great. It handles well in the wet weather and of course in the dry because of its all wheel drive. The sound system is a factory installed Alpine system that blows the doors out with any sort of music. The trunk space is amazing for such a small car and could easily fit a bag of golf clubs (or a Marshall head with a single cab). The looks this car gets range from envy to awe. This X model is different from standard models because it sports a spoiler on the rear of the car on the trunk lid and a low profile body kit on the front of the car. This gives the X-Type a race car look to go with its race car performance. With most sports cars, back seats are as rare as front row tickets to a Rolling Stones show. This sports car "sports" a back seat that actually has leg room for someone over 3 feet tall. In other words, if you have a tall client and the front seat is being taken by your coworker, the client will relax in comfort in the back. My only complaint is the front valence of the car. Anything that has a rise over 3 or 4 inches off of the ground will cause severe damage to the valence. The one on mine has been replace twice. Words to the weary, take bumps slow if you can or avoid potential valence hazards all together. Overall, great car.

Pros: Fun to drive, all wheel drive, Alpine sound system, back seats with leg room.

Cons: Low valence, suede isnt easy to clean, bumpy ride at times.
