    My car

    Having owned the vechicle for 4 years from new it still performs as it did not day one. The equipment level is better than other equivalents from Germany. Ride is excellent as is the driving. Fuel economy varies fro 42 to 48 mpg. I find the new Shell desiel give an extra 2/3 miles per gallon and worth the extra cost. Running cost were high particularly servicing but after guarantee expired now use a non franchised garage and save 30% and get a more personal service. Depreciation is high but worth checking as number of X-Type are ex company and have a high 100k+ mileage and badly worn upholstery, body work, etc. I would buy again.

    My car

    I love this car. I bought it a month ago for 7k (2003 reg, 65k miles). The ride is astonishing, powerful, composed, and thanks to the full time 4 wheel drive, very secure and safe. I was surprised at the positive reactions to its looks also; most people think I have spent a fortune. I didn’t, but it does provide immense second hand value. My wife has also stated she would like the car when I am finished with it. I therefore expect to keep this car within the family for a number of years. As stated previously by other owners of the 3 litre engine, fuel economy will not stretch past 29 mpg's so bear this in mind. For me, however, it is a small price to pay for what is a lot of car for very litte initial outlay.

    My car

    Easily the best car I have ever owned. Bought from a Jaguar dealer when it was 3 years old, I have had bullet proof reliabiliy over its 44000 miles.

    I only wanted the 3.0 V6 manual from the range for its performance credentials. This car is seriously quick and the 4 wheel drive system means the handling is up to the job too. Clearly the running costs are expensive, circa 25mpg, but I accept that for the performance on offer.

    I've had Audis, BMW and Mercedes and none of them compare to the driving pleasure I get from this car. Makes me grin every time I'm on a twisty road.

    Cracking engine, Great Drive, shame about the lack of power compared with its rivals. Those Germans have this car beat
