#690 of 2600 Ford has changed Jag X-Plan (not nearly as good anymore)
Nov 28, 2001 (11:22 am)
Ford has changed the x-plan for jaguar this year. there is no longer an "x-plan" there is now a "jaguar preferred" program offering cash back. the following is directly from the fordpartner.com site that was recently updated to give details:
Jaguar does not have an X-Plan pricing program. Jaguar customers negotiate their
purchase price with the dealer and are eligible for a customer cash allowance
that varies by model. This customer cash allowance can be used to reduce the
purchase price of the vehicle or the customer can elect to receive this
allowance in the form of a check. All 2002 model year Jaguars are eligible for
the Jaguar Preferred Program.
The following cash allowance will be applied to your agreed upon vehicle price:
Eligible Vehicles 2002 MY Customer Cash Allowance
XJ8 / XJ Sport $1,000
Vanden Plas $1,500
Super V8 $1,500
XK8 / XKR $1,500

Looks like it expires at the end of the month, but don't be surprised if it gets extended. I'll let you all know as soon as I hear. Too bad you don't live here in sunny Southern California. I have tons of cars going out under A/X/Z plans since we are so close to corporate.

The 3.0L incentive will probably be gone by next year as Jaguar shifts production from 50/50 2.5/3.0 to 70/30 2.5/3.0
#693 of 2600 New Jaguar X is a deathcar
Nov 30, 2001 (6:56 pm)
Please read #659. My car went back to the dealer, who could not find anything wrong. The computer keeps a log, but the ID's pointed to no particular area, I was told. On my way home from work, in the middle of an intersection with cars coming at me at high speed, the computer lights went on again, and the car slowed to 5 mph-gas or no gas pedal! I was nearly killed! Can you people really discuss "discounts" to purchase this car? I am very frustrated, and scared to drive this car again. This is my first, and my last Jaguar. Yes, the engine is great, handling etc., but not if you die in it.
#694 of 2600 my experience with the X-type...

...after over two months of ownership has been nothing but pleasure. There have been no malfunctions and the car is as tight as I got it with no squeaks or rattles. Moreover, it remains fun to drive.

Call NHTSA. The dealer and Jag/Ford will get very nervous if you bring them in. Push them for a new car, just let then take this one off your hands.

I don't blame you for being nervous about that particular car, that sort of failure could have catastrophic consequences, but on the sites I've been visiting, the articles I've read and my own personal experiences, there has been no indication of power loss by other Jag owners.
NYCA offered some very good advice, push Jag for a replacement car, or ask for a refund. Whether those opportunities are available to you in the States and whether you dealer will cooperate may be a different matter. Good Luck!
#697 of 2600 Noise Like a Tuning Fork
Dec 02, 2001 (12:44 am)
I just bought an X-type 2.5 with automatic, and the car makes a high pitched noise like a tuning fork at certain speeds. It seems to happen at about 35 and 70 mph. Other than that, I really like the car.
Has anyone else encountered this type of problem???
Dec 03, 2001 (4:47 pm)
I'm getting an X-Type 3.0 Sport (17 inch wheels) and am curious as to what owners of that model have found to be the optimum front and rear tire pressures.
#699 of 2600 skidbum...how loud is your tuning fork noise and ....
Dec 03, 2001 (7:26 pm)
where is it coming from? driver's side? front? Is it loud or subtle?
