Hello all, sorry I know this post comes up alot but I wasnt able to
find all the info that I needed. I have had a terrible time trying
to locate other jag forums as well to get specs and tech info about
some of the problems with these cars. Basically, I will hopefully
be purchasing a 2002 x-type 3.0 sport 5spd manual 67k miles on it
this saturday or sometime in the next coming week. Now everyone I
know has been telling me to stay away from these cars. They all say
jaguars are junk. However, I like the styling of the x-type and I
like the awd.
From what I have read is that the auto tranny isnt the greatest but
what about the manual? I realize that there isnt a whole lot that
can go wrong with a manual trans but just wondering if there is
anything other then a flimsy clutch that I should look out for.
Also how reliable is the AWD system. I know ford is new at this awd
deal and has had some problems with sensors etc. Anything else I
should look at with the x-type?
Hows the motor? I realize its your basic ford power plant with jag
heads on it but what about water pump? ignition? power steering etc
anything tend to give way early? thanks alot guys and sorry for all
Looking for an x-type
