Hey guys, was hoping some people will chime in and let me know what you guys think.

I am looking at picking up a 2003 Jaguar X-Type, interior and exterior are in mint condition, has over 60k on the clock, it's the 2.5 with 5 speed.

What are your general opinion of these cars? Are they worth it?

Anything helps!

Do not touch an X-Type with a 10 foot fucking pole.

This used to be my #1 selling car on the lot, I sold over 20 of them in 2008, I REFUSE to sell them.

Transmission problems are extremely common, brakes wear out extremely quickly, interior fit and finish is terrible, electrical problems are a dime a dozen.

I'll elaborate more later tonight or tomorrow when I have more, busy atm

My ex had one, it was a POS. 3.0 Auto, slow as hell so I can only imagine how much of a dog the 2.5 is. Smelled like oil, brakes went out quick, drove like a Ford Taurus. Get a used XJR.

My father had one and the AWD system took a crap shortly after buying it...

I always got the vibe of the car being a Taurus in Jaguar clothing...I'd stay away.

How does the s-type compare? I heard to stay away from the 2002? They are dirt cheap...

S-Type 3.0 is pretty bad.

S-Type 4.0 seems to be hit or miss. Mostly miss but not nearly as bad as the 3.0. The main issue with these is the transmission going out around 70k miles

S-Type 4.2 is good

S-Type R is one of the most reliable luxury cars on the road.
