I would recommend you register at jaguarforums.com. There is a wealth of information there as well as here. And for parts you can try Gaudin for parts. Just wait until you get the dreaded "cruise not available".

Good grief. It's now 2013, and you couldn't buy a 2002 X-type with 38K miles for under 17k.

I'm confused by your message. I did a quick search and I'm seeing all sorts of x-types for under 10K. Of course they don't have 38k miles, but the person you responded to bought it almost 8 years ago, so not many around. However, there's one for $8k that only has 56,000 miles - close comparison, and not near $17,000.

Mine did the same and it was the transmission was slipping. It kept jerking when it would be a gear change.

I am looking at a 2003 Jaquar X with 145,000 miles. It has a clean CarFax and was a one owner vehicle. Looks great but am not sure if this mileage is too high. They are asking $5,500. Haven't test driven it yet, just looked at it. Any suggestions or helpful hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

My 03 x has 136k and still runs great. Have had no major probs. 30-32mpg hwy using Michigan gas (much better than Illinois, Indiana or Iowa due to the blend - no ethanol). 5500 might a bit much in my opinion. I hope you have someone that can check it out for you - ask all the right questions, what to check for visual inspection, etc. Test all the bells and whistles, lights, seat heater, a/c, electric seats, turn signals, everything. Look at exhaust when you are following behind for signs of smoke, tire wear, work the transmission by shifting, etc etc etc.
I plan on keeping mine for many years to come.
Hope that helps.

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my distress call! I ended up purchasing the same model Jag from a different dealer. It had 111,000 miles and included a 6 mo warranty. I hope I made a good decision...didn't get your response in time to include the info in my decision. I did check what I could since both the dealer and I weren't sure how to work all the bells and whistles. I'll post again after I pick it up on the 7th! Again, thanks for the info!!!

Well, today is the big day!
I find that the controls are very well positioned for ease of use on steering wheel - cruise control at right hand, radio left hand.
Setting the clock is a little kludgey and not intuitively obvious. I have to figure it out every time. My clock gains a minute in about a month.
The cruise control is the best I've seen, car gets to that speed gradually instead of downshifting. When it approaches speed it eases up so it does not go over more than maybe 1-2mph. It is very consistent. The cancel is like hitting the brake. Resume just gets you back. I am on my second set of brakes at 134k, will probably renew soon to my third set.
At your miles it is not inconceivable for your engine light to come on at some point. It is a common thing with these cars. It is generally not an emergency, most times indicating an air leak of some sort in the intake system. It could be a hose or requiring renewal of upper/lower intake gaskets, about $600 at the dealer. You may also see "cruise not available". That happens because of the intake business. When that happens you cannot get the engine to rev beyond 3000rpm. Just keep it below that and you can drive to wherever. It's happened to me and went away after I sprayed an manifold air pressure sensor with CRC, a very simple operation, 5 minutes.
Have fun with your car.

Wow,thanks for remembering my "big day". I actually ended up picking her up on the 9th and have been happily driving around since. It really is a beautiful car and handles like no other vehicle I have owned to date. I am having her oil changed in the morning and it all gone over at that time..then hopefully off to Cape Cod,Mass. To see my sister and niece skydive for the first time. Again,thanks for being there for this stage of my Jag journey!!
