2005 Jaguar X-Type 3.0L gasoline from North America
Was nice to drive, but not sorry that it has gone
All 4 wheel bearings - one twice.
Wheel nut removal - had to cut one stud right off.
Small rust spots - typical Ford problem.
Numerous headlamp bulb failures.
Short tire life.
Serpentine belt broke.
Nice car to drive with lots of "get up and go".
Compact interior, adequate but not roomy.
Disappointed in repeated wheel bearing failures.
Stranded on the highway with a broken belt.
Good in winter, never stuck in snow, only on sheer ice once.
I have had 3 Jaguars; this one, a Sovereign, and an XJR. All different cars, but one feels nervous as they all had problems. Still have the Sovereign, which needs a fuel pump.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
