Never thought it would have been this good!!!

So it was time for me to start looking for a second car because i wanted better mpg and the truck doesnt get the best(i was not willing to give up the truck) so i started looking around...vw's, bmw, audi's and so on. It never crossed my mind to look at an x-type till i saw one. Was not sure about reliability, but then i found out it is ford's 3.0 duratec. I thought "oh great i buying a ford" but truely it still is a jag.


Superb and underappreciated

The x type suffered unfairly at the hands of the media who called it a Ford Contour/Mondeo and not a real jag. This is like saying Audis, Lexus, Acuras etc are not real luxury cars because they share components with VW, Toyota, Honda etc. Besides, the Mondeo version that the x type is based on never made it to the US. It is NOT the Contour sold here and the x type shares less than 15% common parts with a Mondeo. Independent of all that, the x type is a superb combination of style, comfort and driving experience. The x type has an understated elegance that makes it quite unique compared to the BMWs and Mercedeses in it's class. I've loved owning mine. It's very reliable, the dealer that services it is excellent and based on my experience I'll buy another jag in a heart beat. I did research several cars thoroughly before getting an x type. The final was betwen the Mercedes C280 4 matic and this. I picked the x type for a more comfortable ride and nicer overall style. The drive quality was similar for both.


An amazing car: superb handling

Despite nonsense comments to the contrary, this is a real Jaguar: fast, comfortable, elegant (it turns heads!), beautifully built, real wood, real leather, and very reliable. Far ahead of the competition (by my actual comparison), and the AWD handling is amazing.


Great balance of size and comfort

We wanted a comfortable car, but not a huge sedan . The X is just the right size for driving in the city, and with all wheel drive it will be perfect in the rain and snow. The stereo is awesome the interior is also a good blend of luxury and comfort without feeling over done. The engine does seem to work a little hard to get it up to speed, but that is a very small annoyance, and it isn't broke in yet we will see how much that improves once it is.
