Pros: outstanding performance
Cons: trunk latch malfunction
Advice: drive itWe bought a 3.0 5 speed after driving BMW 3 and 5, Volvo S60 and Audi. The Jag was the clear winner in all categories. Very fast and comfortable. Outstanding handling. Dealer ia a pleasure to deal with. Love how beautiful the car is and that there is not another on every street corner. If you know high performance and luxury, give it a try.
Pros: Come on
Cons: No power memory seats
Advice: Check out the sport package. The performance is awesomeWe bought the x-type with the sport package, and absolutely love it. It's quick, quiet, and so much fun to drive. It's roomy, yet feels like a little 2 seater from the drivers perspective, it's that sporty. It really is a dream car, at a great price, and we've had most of the luxury cars around including lexus and cadillacs to compare it to. All I can say is YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!
Cons: small trunk
Advice: Test drive it's competitors and you will buy a Jag.After doing a comparison drive of an Audi, BMW 325xi and X-Type Jag, each an AWD vevhicle - I settled on the Jag. Now, after 2,000 miles I have no regrets. This car responds very well when I ask it to and comes better equiped than it's nearest competitors.
Pros: Navigation System/Touch Screen
Cons: No memory seats
Advice: Check known bugsVery impressed with handling, acceleration, braking. Could be a bit quicker, but feel is superb. Very comfortable, great seating position.
Pros: THE BODY STYLE IS BEAUTIFUL
Cons: AUTOMATIC TRANS SHIFTS LIKE I'M DRIVING A MANUAL TRANS
Advice: A SPORTY LUXURY CAR VERY CONFORTABLEI ALSO HAVE WINDSHIELD SPRAYERS LEAKING ON THE HOOD,AND THERE SEEMS TO BE A SLIGHT RIPPLE IN THE SIDES OF THE WINDSHIELD. I ONLY HAVE 500 MILES ON THE CAR,SO I HOPE THE AUTO-TRANS STARTS SHIFTING BETTER. THE SERVICE REP SAID THE CAR HAS TO BRAKE IN AND IT WILL GET BETTER. I HOPE FOR HIS SAKE IT DOES, BECAUSE I WILL BE IN HIS FACE EVERY WEEK...
Pros: wood interior, headlights
Cons: rear seats are too firm
Advice: get an XJR :)I used to own a 1989 XJ6...this car has completely shooke me! Jaguar is probably the best car on the planet in its class! only a Bentley could beat it! my Jaggy had 120 000 miles when i had to sell it, no serious problems whatsoever! the ride is super-comfortable, engine is quiet and powerful, sharp turns were no problems even at law-breaking speeds! so why buy a boring mercedes or bimmer, get a grown-up car, start respecting yourself!
Pros: Performance & handaling
Cons: No in dash cd
Advice: Buy,BUY,buy,BUYMy last car was a Z28 6 speed & I was concerned about the loss of performance going from 280 HP to 230 HP automatic. Little did I know. 'This car blows you away' It not only out accelerates the Z but the handling is like night & day. I would recommend this car to anyone i bought the car loaded, sports package, weather package, nav system ecc & its worth every $. As for the A4,3-series, & Mercedes, you have no choice - EAT MY DUST!!!
