problem #4

X-Type 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles
Drive line noise, it happens when the ait temperature is low, first after about 3-4 minutes of driving and about 1/2 mile when I approach my second stop sign. Other Jaguar owners had the same problem and had to replace the propshaft, this is a tsb defect and Jaguar will fix if you the car has warranty, otherwise, you will have to pay around $1300 to get the noise gone. If you got to X-type forum on roadfly.com you will find alot complaint about that noise.

The consumer states these are problems that have come about in the short time that the vehicle has been in possession, and they are as followed: The replacement of a faulty gear selector lever, the replacement of the entire drive shaft. The differential was completely replaced in July, and replaced again in October. This was done to get rid of the vehicles high pitched whining noise that remains even after the second replacement.
