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

    My car

    I wanted to love this car to bits as it has the best chassis of its class I feel but the wibbly wobbly build I found crass. Drive great and gives a sense of being but I cannot concur with your lust for 2.0D engine.

    Thats why I own a Saab 9-3

    My car

    Part 2: my major gripe is fuel economy. The best I have got on a journey is 44mpg, and that was being ever so careful. In ordinary driving, I am lucky to get 38mpg. The lowest has been 34mpg. Current average fuel economy is 36.34mpg. This is against their claimed 51mpg figures!

    I had a Honda Accord for six months (ave. 43mpg) - their engine is streets ahead of any other diesel. I had a Mazda 6 before that (ave. 42mpg).

    When I was test driving cars, the BMW 3 Series handling was out of every other car's league, but expensive and did not have many "toys".

    Overall the X-Type is good, but not much more than that. It has lots of kit, is comfortable, has a big boot (I can get several sets of golf clubs in there no problem), and pleasant and easy.

    It's a compromise of everything. I will go for something else next time (if the X-Type is even still around!) as I am now able to say I had a Jaguar.
