2001 Jaguar X-Type SE 3.0 from UK and Ireland
Expensive to run and not very special
4x4 transfer box replaced, but the car still whines/groans.
CD player jammed.
ABS / TRACS light randomly comes on.
Misfire / jerky under acceleration when the engine is cold.
I bought this car as I always wanted a Jaguar, and it appeared to be a good buy - low mileage, service history, etc.
However I have been very disappointed as it has been expensive to run and it really doesn't feel very special at all.
The performance is modest for the claimed power (3.0 - 230 BHP) and fuel economy (20 MPG).
The autobox is very slow and jerky.
The ride is harsh, the cabin rattles and squeaks, and it's surprisingly limited on space considering the size of the car.
The only positive sides are the heated front screen and climate control, which heats/cools the car quite rapidly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
