Jaguar X-TYPE Problems

No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Jaguar X-TYPE reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.

Is a Volvo C70 or Jaguar X-Type a good first budget car in Australia?

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Dec 2017

I wouldn’t recommend either of them as a budget buy, unless you have deep pockets. They are both too old. While they might not be very exciting, a car from one of the big Asian brands, such as Mazda or Toyota, would be a much better choice for someone with a limited budget.

X-Type rough on bumps

Answered by CarsGuide 30 May 2016

If the Pedders blokes can't find anything, and I'm a huge fan of the brand, then it's likely a softer-riding tyre will help. The X-Type is based on a Ford Mondeo, so you could be expecting too much.

2004 Jaguar X Type rust on suspension and control arms

Answered by CarsGuide 29 May 2015

If it's surface rust it should be acceptable to clean it off and apply a protective coating, and that's what I suspect it is. If it were structural rust that's a different matter, but it's unusual for suspension components to be affected this way. It would seem on the surface that the mechanic is being over zealous. Find an engineer acceptable to Queensland Transport to assess the rust for you and go from there.
