I bought a 2005 X-type 2.5 with no options (list price $30,995) for $23,000 brand new in 9/05. I now have 12,200 miles on the vehicle, and the only time I have had it back for service was for the 10,000 mile complementary oil change. However, my plan was and is to keep the car only through the factory warranty period. I would be nervous about having any Jaguar beyond the warranty period. You could look into extended warranties, but I would have that figured out before pulling the trigger on this one. Check edmunds.com and kbb.com for trade-in value on this vehicle as another source of pricing info. You may also want to check cars.com and see what people are asking for a similar car.

The warranty will expire in Feb 07. I am not sure why is so short. only 3 yrs warranty with Jag???
Anyone has input or expereince with extending warranty with Jag dealers? how did it go?
I checked in all above websites... it is around 20-21,000 with that kind of mileage.

Didn't you say it was an '03?
I spoke to a jag dealer, they said that they don't certify cars, but you can sell it to them and immediately buy it back as a CPO. Of course, they mark it up for cpo-ing and some profit for their time.
Not sure this makes sense with the taxes, and all..
I think the x-types were still buggy in '03.

That is not a particularly good price for an '03. Local paper (Phoenix) has '04s at that price. Consumers is full of it as usual. I had a new '02 and an '05 and had no trouble at all. Jaguar has the best extended warranty in the business called Select Edition. I would not buy a Jaguar without it period.

ok. I inquired extended select edition above. For a 2003, 18k miles x-type quoted $1370 for 72months/60,000 miles. so all these costs are adding up??. Plus after this 2 years it can be more. We can not go along like this.
Anyway how diffcicult and expensive is it for minor repairs of Jaguar? or you all say don't take risk just take the insurance?
I just found out that for my new condo, i kept on waiting list for gaurage? I may have to park on main road?
Now whats the call??
Will all these adding risks & costs, i may have to come out of the deal.

I personally would get out of the deal. Jaguar repairs are VERY expensive. I think it should be 72 mos. and 100K. Since it is an '03, you would probably get around 36 months left on the extended warranty. Don't let them give you a third party warranty. It has to be the Jaguar Select Edition which is very comprehensive. Parking on the street would probably mean someone will rip off your hood leaper. There is $250 right there unless they dent the hood. I hate to be negagtive because I'm sure you would enjoy the car but be realistic and think it through.

What is the name of the dealer that is offering the 72month/60,000 mile warranty for $1370? That sounds like a very good deal for the protection of such an expensive to repair vehicle. As I had mentioned in an earlier post, I bought a 2005 X-type 2.5 Manual in 9/05, but was planning on selling the car prior to the warranty lapse. With another option like this, I may want to keep it. It has been absolutely trouble free for the past year and its first 12,200 miles.

your deal was amazing, you bought the new car for 10k less than MSRP with showroom mileage. Nothing can beat that. I am glad that you're enjoying the car trouble free.
About the bumper-bumper insurance mentioned up there, It is through FORD ESP, not a dealer (actually someone in our forum suggested it and then i looked it up). I was quoted through following website.
www.WarrantyDeals.com Tel: 866-379-7096.
I also contacted the dealer (Great Neck, NY), I heard they have also some kind of program similar, but the person who is incharge was not there on friday, i will be in contact with him on monday.
With all the due dilegence, although my deal is scary, Would it be Ok, if i negotiate it for $15,000 so i can take the insurance? My deal still tempting me because the car inside and out looks immaculate, still feel the smell of a new car, although it has 18,000 miles on it. Mercs & Beemers are every where, throught JAG may look diffrent? Still contemplating .. but i don't think the seller will agree for 15k. Thanks everyone.

I was actually $8000 under MSRP of $30,995 (there was factory to dealer cash on the 2.5 5spd manual X-types at the time). As long as the warranty is through a legitimate manufacturer (Ford does still own Jaguar, at least until they can unload it), I would think that would still be good. In general, extended warranties have about a 50% to 100% markup for the selling dealership (e.g., Toyota Platinum warranties for a 2007 Camry have a list price of about $1200. I got mine from another Toyota dealer different from where I bought my mother's Camry for $525), so you might be able to get them to give you the warranty in lieu of a full $2000 discount from their asking price of $17,000. Insofar as the "cache" of the Jaguar, I think you are correct. It is a much rarer car (much to Jaguar's and Ford's chagrin) than the typical BMW or Benz, and most people think it costs a lot more than it does! I sincerely appreciate the info on the extended warranty and I will look into it. After you have decided your deal, could you please post the name of the dealership offering the Ford ESP Warranty. It would save me some legwork. I am originally from the North Shore myself (Port Wash).
