lovely car once you get used to the diesel sound,loud and rough on tick over.a soon as you accelerate it behaves like a very good petrol engine very smooth due to excellent turbo charger. driven carefully accelerate smoothly drop into fith as soon as possible change down before breaking and brake gently in plenty of time it will exceed it,s published 48 to the gallon on a long run you will get nearer 55 mpg love the classic baby jag looks comfortable interior and good standard spec handles like… Read Full Review

“I had my heart set on a Jaguar for about 3 years since...”

Written on: 25/02/2010 by Lawrenma2 (31 reviews written)

I had my heart set on a Jaguar for about 3 years since my Dad bought his, so it's still very hard to believe and sink in that I actually bought one.

When I test drove it (I bought the top SE model), I was surprised at how smooth the drive was for a diesel, and how good a job Jaguar have done in sound-proofing the interior. The interior is a lovely place to be, with good leather seats more comfortable than the suit in my house. Steering is effortless, and easier to park than my old Rover 416… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2009 by markmountain (9 reviews written)

I bought a Jaguar 2.0d x-type estate on a 05 plate 2 years ago.
I have no issues with the cars aesthetics, the leather seats are very nice, the extras such as rear park assist and electric / heated seats are all fine. My issue lies in the reliability of the car. I have only ever got 40mpg and we don't drive the car fast, so I'm not sure where the 48 comes from that Jag refer to! Also, the whole turbo needed replacing at a cost of £2000! Not really something you would expect on a 4 year old car… Read Full Review

My 55 Plate Jaguar X type 2.0 d Sport with leather and convenience pack, folding mirrors, rear park assist and mats (can't believe manufacturers still charge you for mats, oh thanks for the 22 grand and by the way that's another 50 quid for the mats).

Written on: 30/05/2008 by Mal1Jag (1 review written)

Not the most reliable car I've ever owned. Airbags failed due to wire rubbing against front bumper mountings. Has a flat spot between 3250rpm and 4000rpm that is often so noticeable you would think you'd lifted your foot off the accelerator. Dealer says there is nothing wrong with it. Then takes another £120 off me. This week it has started dropping into 'limp home' mode. Engine is still sweet as a nut it just appears to be all the other stuff around it that falters. Oh and yes I do have rust… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2008 by gazza09796 (7 reviews written)

The Jaguar X Type is a well designed car that are a dream to drive. They are great value for money and they are very frugal. They make you want to go fast as the acceleration is immediate and raw. Very comfortable and plenty of toys. So much so that my brother bought the 2.2 Sports Premium, 6 months after I bought my 2 ltr. what a car… Read Full Review

(You have to use Pirelli tyres according to our local dealer or your insurance is invalid)

<br/>I am not sure where you live.
<br/>I live in the uk your dealer is telling you rubbish.
<br/>I have changedmine to Mitchalins on my 2008 X type 2.2 estate as I had a problem with the Pirelli tyres no comments from my dealer.

Apart from the problems I do love the car, and would have another, but with dark interior. The car I have is zircon blue with dove interior. Shame that Jaguar didn't fit the twin exhaust like 2.5 and 3.0 on the diesels. I have just done the self conversion to twin exhausts on mine and it transforms the looks… Read Full Review

“An excellent motorway cruiser my Jaguar 2.0D Classic...”

Written on: 15/08/2007 by Julianlord (1 review written)

An excellent motorway cruiser my Jaguar 2.0D Classic is a company car and I got it because it just crept under the £20k limit I was set and it sits on the drive next to my Jaguar XJR-S 6.0 V12.
Daily commute speed is 90-100mh. At 70 it is almost silent, at 100 you start to get more tyre noise.
The car has been utterly reliable apart from an intermittent boot lock fault.
Front tyres lasted 30k, rears 60k.
Build quality is excellent, no rattles. Startup engine noise is not in S-type/Chrysler 300C… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/06/2006 by elsaidst (1 review written)

I have been a BMW car fan-buyer practically all my life. Until 2005, my 2001 BMW 328i fully loaded Estate started to bore me. Normally I miss my ex car for months after I change it, like an old shoe. Not this time, the Jaguar X-Type is perfect. Enjoying every mile, specially the manual gear, smooth and accurate. The interior is more plush than my ex fully loaded but bland BMW.
The torque makes it easy to drive in traffic as well as allows for secure overtaking. It has more space than my ex BMW… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/09/2005 by matman (1 review written)

I have a 2005 'S' model Jaguar X-Type with full leather, and a few other bits and bobs incl. It has dynamic stability control (or whatever it's called). It replaced a lowly Mondeo (2002) diesel, so I was familiar with the engine dynamics. The seats are brilliant, and make me appreciate the handling of this car. It tickles along at 100mph all day long (not in this country). I drove two 4 hour journeys in one day, and felt 100% better than I did in the Mondeo.
I recommend this car. I looked at… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2004 by SmithKL (5 reviews written)

The Jaguar X-Type Estate 2.0 Diesel executive car is exceptionally good with respect to refinement and performance. Very good torque means that it is easy and relaxed to cruise at high speed.
The only critisisms are some features on the car are a little down-market such as the fuel cap release and the manual rear windows on the Classic model. A trivial annoyance is the lack of coin storage for road tolls etc.
Average fuel ecconomy achieved approx. 40mpg… Read Full Review

Edster's Response to SmithKL's Review

Written on: 29/12/2004

I would agree with the refinement of the car and that some of the trim can feel a little cheap - the air con / radio centre console for one.
<br>
<br>Choose the 's' version recently released, which is a hybrid of the Sport (half leather sports seats, larger alloys) and the SE (better air con, rear electric windows).
<br>
<br>I don't think the engine is as good as the Audi 1.9tdi (previous car) and you certainly cover the car behind in 2mm of soot if you put your foot down.

An average car that breaks down regularly.
<br>'Jaguar Assistance' not helpful when you breakdown which is often.
<br>I will never buy jag again, Nor will anyone else in my company as it has just been taken off the list of company cars due to the issues above.
