Thinking of buying a Jaguar X-Type...


I'm interested in buying an X-Type Jaguar 2.0-litre diesel circa 2009 (facelift model). So far I've been hearing mostly good reviews, but was wondering are they expensive to maintain for servicing, parts etc. and if there's any electrical or diagnostic problems I could be fleeced for?

Hi Barry,

Actually, the X-Type diesel was beset with a long list of issues. Most of them are relatively inexpensive to fix, but there are loads of known electrical problems and generally poor build quality as well. A 2009 car would at least, but late in the model's life cycle, so it may be better than early examples, but it's not a car that we'd highly recommend in terms of reliability and cost of maintenance.
