  • 110,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Jaguar X-type. While driving approximately 20-25 mph, the fuel level indicator failed. The vehicle was taken to a local repair facility where it was determined that the fuel sending unit had failed and the fuel gauge would need to be replaced. In addition, when activating the air conditioner, the engine mount warning light would intermittently illuminate on the warning panel. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for the failure. The vine was not available. The failure mileage was 110,000 and the current mileage was 130,000.

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.

This car has been a disappointment since day one. I bought this off lease from bournival Lincoln/Mercury in July 2005. Since then...first was the constant condensation of the windows...something about heater core and seals needed to be replaced. Then the check engine light kept coming on, drive 115 miles to the jag dealer and be told nothing is wrong on multiple occasions. The sun room failed and had to be replaced. When this happened the passenger front seat belt would no longer pull out-completely inoperable. Next cam the chugging, chugging, go syndrome. Ws told it had something to do with fuel sensors and oxygen sensors. Tire blow out on the highway (with kids and mother in the car). Now the bolts holding the strapping to secure the fuel tank fell out. The dealer ship tells me---not from rust---but they are alleging from some sort of valdalism--so I have to pay to have these replaced. Yup...it's been an expensive two years....$24,000 for the car, twice towed, warranty covered repair expenses +/- $4,000; uncovered repair expenses still incurring-but it's over $1,500 at last count.. not to mention numerous drives to Jaguar dealers (this means taking the day off from work)....when I bought the car, I purchased a Ford premium care extended warranty, because, as I was informed, "any Ford dealer should be able to handle the car"...untrue.

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.
