Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Jaguar X-Type saloon?

The secret to the Jaguar X-Type is to avoid early cars, which suffered from serious quality issues up to and including wheel hub failures. Later cars were much better built and the X-Type can provide years of faultless service if it’s cared for.

If you're considering a manual car and the clutch is heavy it will need replacing soon, while the interiors are prone to showing the effects of wear and tear, especially the front seats, which can work loose on their runners.
