I would like to post a similar complaint to notify other consumers who owns a Jaguar X-type 2002. In August 29 2007, on my way to work the car wouldn't accelerate more that 30 miles per hour. I drove back home and I had the car towed to the nearest Jaguar dealership. I had to replace the transmission for a cost of $5,400 with 59,000 miles. The first 4 years, I made several visits to the dealer to fix an engine light problem, fuel leak, reported a squeaky sound coming from the brakes (@ 10,000 miles Jaguar told me I needed new brakes pads for a cost $1,200, ). the radio speakers stopped working and I was told it was normal wear and tear and it will cost me $ 900 to fix it.

: the contact stated intermittently, the brakes squeaked and would not stop the vehicle. The parking brake must be applied to stop. The dealership is unable to determine the problem. No repairs have been attempted.

When applying the brake pedal, the brakes failed. The consumer was able to maintain control of the vehicle and pulled over. The vehicle was towed to a dealer for inspection. The mechanic informed the consumer that the brakes needed to be replaced. The bracket that held the pads had broken and currently the left rear wheel was damaged, there was also a gasoline smell, there was vibration and or metallic sound when the vehicle speed was over 45 mph, and the navigation system broke. The consumer also had steering problems.

I love my jag, but drive shaft replaced 4X - whistling noise due to incompatible metals, front seats rock, windows malfunction, brakes have rapid wear less than 30,000 miles, tires replaced less than 30,000 miles, dealer is trying to solve problems.
