problem #2

Nov 042006

X-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles
At only 46,000 miles, vehicle suffered catastrophic transmission failure, resulting in estimates ranging from $8000 (Jaguar rebuilt) to $3000 (local rebuild) for repairs. Car was, according to dealer, out of warranty by registration date, leaving me with the entire rebuild bill. Jaguar knows about the problem of X-type transmissions failing and refuses to address the situation. Emails and letters sent to Jaguar hq have all gone unanswered. Since I received the vehicle, the transmission has been replaced, headlight washer covers have both blown off during use, sunroof has failed, both front seats rock (Jaguar has a tsb out on this but fails to recall), mysterious dsc failures and many fit and finish issues (dash pad warping, paint issues, etc.).
