x type is no more than a re-skinned Ford Taurus, there is a reason they stopped making it. I've also been inside an s type, i wasn't really impressed with the interior for the money you spend. I say look at a different brand all together.

I think the X type has a V12 motor , so I don't think it would be too economical with the current fuel prices...

Re: what do you think about a car Jaguar x type or s type. Ok, I will give you a low down

Ok, I will give you a low down on the jags since I have researched them for so long:



The S-Type: Avoid it, too many problems....Trannys, mechanical, electrical components, etc.



The X Type - Avoid the 2.5L, IF you get the 3.0L you will generally avoid problems as long as you get a 2003 or newer.



So try to find an X-Type.

2003 or newer.

3.0 L engine.

And you will have a good bargain on your hands becuase they depreciate quickly and are great value for the money.







EDIT:Like the previous guy said, the XJs are pretty sweet too!

Jaguar for a long time always had a bad wrap of mechanical issues and outdated technology for the cost.



Look to a BMW.



Good Luck.

as a jag owner i can give you the some intelligent answers that seem to be lacking by the comments Ive read....x-type is the smallest of the jags ..and unless your small in stature you wont be happy with the cabin room......they don't get hi marks for reliability..but they do make a manual trans version....if u like sticks.....they come mostly with 6 cyl.engines that are not gas guzzlers..but the mpg isn't good....i look for the new owners of jag to remove this car from their lineup soon......now the s type.....more cabin room but still not roomy if you are a big guy....reliability is below average for a car of this price....this by far is the most popular jag and it comes in a convertible model ...now to xj they make xj8, xj8L,xj8 vanden plaus...these ear my favs. and i own one myself xj8 vanden plaus.......jag makes more expensive cars up to 200,000 dollars....but the xj cars in my opinion are great...cost between 68,000 to 85,000......jags at one time had a bad rap because of their electrical systems but after ford bought them that all changed...but i can tell u this i work on these cars daily and when any jag breaks for whatever reason hold onto your hat because its gonna cost u plenty of cash to repair.....not many people own jags,and most tell u stuff they heard in the 70s ...so if u want a jag im all for it ,but if u need reliability,mpg,and cheaper service try a Honda or Mazda,etc....

jaguars are awesome cars; power, luxury, styling. the reason they say bad stuff is because they dont have one!

Jaguar is known for comfortable sitting and stylish designs of dash boards, But we should not neglect importance of car insurance, as it is a important plan to get.

After reading the previous replies, I kind of chuckled a little bit. I currently own six vehicles, one of which is a 2006 3.0 awd Xtype. It has 115k on it and I have maintained the car very well. I can honestly say that this Jaguar has had no problems that differ from any other car. The normal brakes, tires, and other wear items are expected. The only bad things were the overflow tank (known issue), the brake fluid cap, the seat heater elements, and the fabric coming off the A pilars. Part are expensive, make no mistake, but if you take care of a Jag, they will last a long time. I have to disagree with the previous poster on the "BMW" being a better car. I have owned two,(Z3 and 325i) and both had many problems, mostly electrical. I love my Jag, and to me the most beautiful car ever built was the X-Type, followed by the Xj6. They have a timeless design and are the sexiest sedans on the road today. Oh, and with 115k, I still get an impeccable 24.6mph which is outstanding for a V6 with AWD.

I think s type is great as it has sober and antique look. :roll:
