I bought my Elegant 2005 X - type Sedan after driving a Lincoln Navigator,.. WHat have I been Missing... It hit 0-60 in 10-15 Seconds. Over all around 29-34 MPG Nice Sportscar feel Ride, 3.0 Liter 6 cylinder Enginer has the Power one would not expect from a Baby Jaguar,.... Factory installed Beautiful Realistic (6 cd load trunk) Sound System. Quiet Engine. Boy, do I get the Looks. Its just a Nice Car. Maintenance is a bit Pricey, but hey, for the Style, Quality n reliability.. You cant Go Wrong. Smooth Calf Leather Interior, 17 inch Wheels are Sassy. I had never imagined this type of Satisfaction. Im a Single Retired School Teacher. Never thought I could afford a Jaguar. Great AWD suspension, does Well in Iowa Winters. I am VERY HAPPY n Would recommend this Car for anyone able to afford the Maintenance.. $100.00 Dealer Change, but Simple enough even a novice can do. Thanks for reading my Review

I am a 6'1" male and I fit comfortable in car. It is a small sedan, but I use it as a everyday and it has plenty of room. It is a very quick little AWD car, on a ford chassis. It could use a little bit more power from the standard 227 hp, but I am being picky. This car can move, is a joy to mess with other cars with more HP. It handles and drives Great!

This car makes me wish I had a Honda or something. Something breaks every other month on this car, and it was barely used. Repairs are expensive. It has a small tank and only takes premium gas. I spend about $150/month on gas for it. People assume I'm a douchebag because I'm driving a Jaguar. If you're currently driving a good, reliable car that's good on gas no matter what the make, I envy you.

Overpriced

by from on October 22, 2013

I liked the style and make of the car. Otherwise, was not impressed with the communication to obtain the vehicle.

I purchased this car this year with 85,512 in pristine condition. I have yet to have any issues with my "Silver Bullet" knock on wood. This car is truly a head turner with the BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, and any other luxury vehicle on the road. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone and I think I will stay with this brand.

Pleased with purchase

by from Middelbury, CT on September 1, 2012

I am totally enthused with my purchase of my 2005 Jaguar X-Type. Dealer was fabulous, and the car was pristine--only 49,800 miles.

Purchased the car for my B-Day. Has 53K miles, its a 2005. & purrrrrrrrs like a kitten. I've had Mercedes E-class and this is by far a better vehicle, and i paid twice as much for the Mercedes and had nothing but problems.....If you have the opportunity to buy one buy it.
