2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 from North America
Not sure what to make of her yet
A month after purchasing the car, the water pump needed to be replaced. The previous owner had the same problem exactly a year ago, and therefore the warranty was still valid.
Three days after picking up the car from the dealer, the radiator had a hole, and needed to be replaced as well.
I've finally started driving the car, and all was going well until now the yellow engine light showed up, and the message board informed me that the cruise is not available.
I'm supposed to bring the car into the dealer to check this, but I'm fed up with missing work, and running all the time to deal with this touchy car.
I'm not quite sure what to make of this baby yet. It could be just some bad timing or a serious money pit. I'm in the hole so far for $1,000 and counting. One thing I do know, when she's running fine and there are no issues, I absolutely love her. The interior is beautiful and very elegant for a low-end luxury vehicle.
The outside is gorgeous, and is very different from the BMW's and Audi's of her class. The handling is probably her greatest asset, as I've driven every car out there, and she handles the road incredibly. The only set back are the parts and labor to repair if there are issues. I only hope the my days at the Hag dealer are over.
I'll keep you posted.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
