I recently traded my 3.0 X-Type due to a very poor dealer here in San Diego. we liked the car a lot and fully enjoyed it. 4 times during the final days of the factory warranty my wife took the car in for transmission concerns -- the car had 32k on it when it timed out on warranty. 5 weeks after the warranty timed out, the automatic transmission failed. The dealer and Jaguar told us -"too bad" and did nothing. After paying for a transmission we traded it on a new Mazda. My brother bought the car for $13,500 and put an extensive extended warranty on it. It is being shipped back east to him now.

And this extended warranty is going to give your brother a loaner car as well? Doubt it.The X-Type is the most unreliable used car you can buy today, surpassed only by the BMW 7 series.

I currently own a 2.5 X-Type and experience a recurring squeaky with my windows. Seeking advice to correct this dilemma than just spraying oil in the grooves (Oil leaves grease marks and I am a clean freak). Murdock.

I purchased my 2002 Jaguar, and the dealership advertised the car as a 2002, but the car was consider a 2001 by Jaguar and the warranty had expired 30 days after I purchased it. (The dealership gave me my 30,000 mile check-up, but failed to report all the leaks with the car). The Car actually started smelling as if it was on fire. I finally got the car fixed and I am still having problem with the car leaking.
The car has major problems with it now. I am doing research to see if the car fits under the lemon law for North Carolina. I've had too many problems with the car. This was my dream car. I am sitting on flats and a broken transmission. I am tired of this car. What makes this story so funny is the manufacturer do not care or the dealership.
