I have a 04 XT and my doors also rattle when the windows are down. My vehicle wasn't even in any accidents. So it must just be the way they are built. I can say, it scared me the first time I heard it. I thought the window broke. My chrome seems fine, just the front grill has a nasty scratch. Seems like you got a nice car for a nice price!

I have been driving my 04 XT for 7 months now. I absolutely love it. The performance is superb. I did some research prior to purchase and noticed alot of issues with the transmission of the 01-03 years. But I didn't see any problems with the 04. I got a 3 year warrenty when I bought it - It is through Fidelity - and cost 1684.00. The dealership paid for it as part of the deal - so far I haven't had to use it.

anytime you run an engine above 3000 rpm, your MPG's will suck. Mine runs around 2400 at 73MPH, and i get 25 MPG. So it is really your choice, but i would say keep it under 3000 and you should get the best of both worlds

my 54 plate diesel both fobs kept playing up , after many returns to stratstone in luton they found that the fobs had to have a gel put in them theyve been fine since, apparently a common fault with the fobs , if you have it in your pocket it does something to it static or something, but is fine now, i sugest a return to a dealer, and have a jolly good moan ,

#51 of 63 Check Engine Light and codes
Dec 03, 2009 (6:36 pm)
I recently purchased a 2002 X-type 3.0. I think that I am going to get to like it. Being a Beamerhead for the past 25 years, I thought I would try a Jag.
However, the car had several problems, this is the story 1 of 2;
I went to AUTOZONE and rented the DTC reader for a few days
1. It had the dtc of p0171, p0174, check engine light on and cruise not available
I searched around the forums for solutions. (You guys are sharp!)
I then broke out my can of starting fluid, started the engine and begin to spray. I sprayed the IMTs, the pipe to the brake booster, the other hose that comes off top of the throttle body (TB) and the PVC hose, to no avail.
So I removed the TB to take a look around and WALLA! There laying on the rear valve cover was a SMASHED PIPE (repaired by inserting both ends into a section of gas line). The TB was not properly installed, instead of being secured to the lower mount (on the side of the valve cover) it was all the way down, pinning the pipe between itself and the valve cover. After reassembly, I cleared the codes, drive it for a few days with no problem.
I then returned the DTC reader back to Autozone. While there I figured I would get a can of Seabreeeze to clean my injectors. I filled the car up with premium gas and added the Seabreeze.
Later that evening, I had to fly out of town and itís approximately 50 mile trip to the airport, so off I went. During the trip the check engine light came on. I noticed no difference in the carís performance.
Upon my return home, I went to Autozone to have the codes read and there were p0300, p0301, p0302, p0303, p0305, p0420, p0430 and p1316.
With this combination of codes indicating a misfire and NO p0304, I figured that this was caused by the Seabreeze (injector cleaning). Is my logic sound?
The car runs smooth
Because of a lawsuit Autozone canít reset or rent the DTC Reader tool. The person that rented me the tool before was reprimanded.
Anyway, MY PROBLEM IS Ė HOW DO YOU CLEAR THE DTC CODES AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WITHOUT A TOOL?
1.tried removing the negative battery terminal for more than an hour
2.tried removing F32 from the fuse box under the hood
3.tried the reset / trip reset button (never got the timing right)
4.have cold started the car more than 10 times
Thanks in advance for your help.

#53 of 63 2004 Jag X-Type Glove Box Scratches
Jan 10, 2010 (2:57 pm)
I have several scratches on the glove box of my dash. I have tan interior and have tried matching shoe polish and several cleaners with no results. Appears the tan finish on the glove box has chipped off and a clear/white color under neath.
Any suggestions ???
