    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???

    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.
    Any input?
    Thanks.
  • 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.

    Hi
    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).
  • I have a 2003 X-Type. I love the car, even though it has its share of quality issues such as a/c vents coming loose, fuel gauge failure, drivers seat motor failure and a cracked A/C compressor and my car only has 30K miles on it. Thank God I bought the extended warrenty. Anyway, I live in Boca Raton, FL. There is a private dealer here that sales jaguars with full factory warrenty for good prices, I am not advertising for them, but they have great prices compared to the dealers here, bought mine there, 03 X-type with extendend warrenty with 25K miles, showroom condition with car fax report for 18K. Check them out offleaseford.com but be carefull, this is my first jag, and with the issues I have had with the mechanical quality of the car, maybe my last.
  • I recently purchased a 2003 x-type and have noticed a buzzing noise that appears to be coming from the dash behind the steering wheel on the right side. It continues to make the noise even with the engine off and the key out of the ignition. Does anyone know what this is and how to make it stop?
  • oldcemoldcem Posts: 309
    A faint buzzing noise is normal. Its a small fan in the dash that draws air in for the sensors for the heating system. Its runs for a while after you shut the car off and take the key out. Have a dealer check it to see if its making an excessive amount of noise.

    FWIW to the group, from my own research, a Jaguar Selection Edition Warranty (6 yrs/100K miles) may only be purchased on a Jaguar that is in a Jaguar dealer's inventory and before the factory warranty expires. For other situations, you would have to consider an extended third party waranty. I personally feel that Select Edition is the best warranty available for the Jaguar. I recently turned in my '03 sedan for an '05 sportwagon. If I had purchased my leased sedan, the dealer was willing to "select edition" for $1495, as it does momentarily enter their inventory. The '05 wagon only had 7000 miles, so we went for that instead. The sedan was nice, but man I love the wagon!
  • Money Magazine or Kiplingers did an article on extended warranties both manufacturers and third party. Jaguar's Select Edition easily came out as the number one extended warranty.
  • Thanks for the input. The fan seems to run incessently. I have gone to the garage at different times, even when the car has not been driven in 8 hours and it still seems to be running. Do you think this is ok, or is this something to investigate?
  • oldcemoldcem Posts: 309
    I believe the fan starts up everytime you open the car door. Try parking the car in the garage with the drivers window down. Leave it sit for about an hour and stick your head in the window and see if the fan's running. If it is, then take it to your dealer and have it checked. Mine used to run for a good half hour after the car was parked.

    Looking for advice. Am interested in purchasing a new 2006 X Type in New England. Want the premium package, heated seats, dynamic stability control, duel seat control and possibly a moon roof. Got the best price of $33K. Anyone have thoughts on this or the best dealer to use in New england.

    What was the name of the dealer that was willing to "select edition" your X-type? I have a 2005 X-type that I originally planned to sell prior to the end of the 4yr/50,000 mile warranty. If I could get the "select edition" warranty, I would probably keep the vehicle another 2 years. Thanks for the help!!
  • I can tell you from experience that you can negotiate the Select Edition Warranty with most any dealer. They run it through their 114 point check (or tell you they do anyway) and then charge you a fee for setting it up. This fee appears to be arbitrary and is different form dealer to dealer. Most would want at least $1500. I think it is the only way to go if you are keeping your car past it's factory warranty period.
  • Good Afternoon All,
    I am looking for some feedback with regards to purchasing Jaguar's extended warranty. My 03 X-Type sport has 23,000 miles and my warranty is due to expire in April 07 . Can anyone give me information relative to your purchase price and the type of warranty you purchased.
    Thanks,
    Doc

    I extended the factory warranty on my 06 when I bought it to 84 months - 100K miles. It carries a $50 deductable after the initial warrany runs out. Cost me about $2700 with sales tax. The dealer laid out all the available warranty extension options Jag offered with the prices, and, I picked the one I wanted.

  • The factory warranty is: 4yr/50,0000 mi. That covers all maintenance including free oil changes just like BMW's.
    Who told you 3 yrs ????
  • I exclusively deal with Jaguar-Land Rover of Hanover Mass. They are top notch in my book. I have 02 X Type.
  • Thanks for the info. I did contact several Jag dealers, most did not return my call. I did, however contact a Jag dealer in Hanover, Ma who quoted me a 3 year 84/100 for $4259. with a $100 deductible.

    Doc:

    Try getting on the internet and contacting Bergen Jaguar in (I think) New Jersey. I believe they sell the Jag factory warranty packages at a discount. You also might get a quote from the 2 aftermarket warranty companies reccomended on the Edmonds site. I strongly considered them when I was shopping for an extended warranty package for my 03 Jag.
  • Bergen Jaguar... :) had the lowest prices and is willing to waive the cost of the pre-inspection because I don't live in NJ. Thank for the recommendation
  • oldcemoldcem Posts: 309
    You're welcome - glad things worked out for you.

  • I was told by a Jag dealer that remote starts are not recommended to be installed in the x-type because of problems with electrical systems and starters. Has anyone heard of such problems before I have the installation done.
    I have a 2002 X-Type 3.0

    Hello oldcem
    Iam buying and 05 x-type 3.0 with 11.5 k miles. how should i transfer the balance warranty if any?
    please advise!

    thanks in advance
    :confuse:
  • oldcemoldcem Posts: 309
    If you're buying it through a Jag dealer, they should handle the warranty transfer for you. In addition, I believe the 10K interval service on the 05 models was done free by the dealers during the warranty period as well. If you're not buying through a Jag dealer, then find the closest one to you and have him set up as your "servicing" dealer. Your 05 should carry the balance of the original 50K warranty, and, you can extend that to 7years - 100k miles through a Jag Dealer. Costs of the additional warranty depend on what deductable you want.

    Hope this helps.
