Should I stay away from this used 2002 and 2004 Jag X-type 4 DR Sedan 3.0L if they have only 90,000 miles on them.?
They both have had 3 previous owners, they one had no accidents and the other had minor accident. The 2004 has an open recall however, but both had recently been driven but just for maybe a 1000 miles or so. Should I stay away or what should I be checking for because the carfaxs shows them looking pretty good in terms of history and maintenance for the amount its been driven.
- Jags are unreliable. Nothing but trouble.32
- Old Jag out of warranty = Red Flag (money pit)
Three previous owners = Red Flag (low satisfaction, reliability problems and high repair costs.)
- NO to any British brand cars although I will gladly take any Aston Martin if someone gives one to me.21
- My gf loves Jags. Stop trying to steal my gf.00
- 15 year old Jaguars will be a money pit. And hugely expensive to insure.20
- Don't they have better quality Lucas electrics than other British cars. Or am I just thinking about the "warm beer - Lucas fridges" joke?
I once knew a fellow who drove a Jaguar. well he mostly didn't drive it, but he had it in the shop getting repaired a lot. If I remember correctly he was independently wealthy.11
- That would be AFTER Ford straightened-out their electrical gremlins, but that still leaves the fuel & the suspension gremlins ... IF this is just a week-end car, then ok, BUT if it is a 'doesn't run you don't get to work car', NO.10
- Yep, stay away. They have (those models and years) have no value or appeal even if perfect ! Sorry! I was a mechanic and car nut at 14 (lots magazines on EVERYTHING mechanical and worked at an Austin, Morris Minor, Jag (stole an XK 120 M on Sunday mornings when I opened the dealership (and hit 120+) at dealership with car lot!00
- It makes you wonder why they had three owners at 90,000 miles and back up for sale again. Jaguar had a reputation for being buggy and the half laugh recommendation was to buy them after 100K because all the repairs would be done by then. The problem with an older car is that organic materials rot which not only means the interior but also the hoses, bushing, Wiring insulation and the encasing of your coils etc..., So if you are prepared for some nagging smaller replacement cost and cracks in the interior? I bought some of these upper end cars for fun but then the ceiling liner fell down, the seats cracked, dash board cracked, cars squeaked and front end parts had to be replaced... I did these all myself, so the cost was not as high as it could have been but I was happy to sell them within a few years of buying them.33
