    My car

    Despite Ford underpinnings, the X-type looks and feels like a Jaguar. Fuel consumption isn't great, though, because it needs a six-speed gearbox. Probably could have gained two inches or so more rear leg room with a bit of a redesign and or reposiitoning of the dash related to the front seat position. There seems to be a lot of space behind the pedals and the width of the dash itself seems excessive. Can't believe there is neither a drop down section between the sun visors nor even a darkened section of the windscreen to block out the sun. My car is very young, it remains to be seen how well it wears. I suspect the soft suspension will become very soft after 50,000-plus miles.
