Jaguar X-Type



  • cjs2002cjs2002 Posts: 341
    was looking through the news paper yesterday and one of my local dealors has out a deal on an 04 X type 3.0 lease for 299 a month for 48 months... with 1500 down... is this good... 12000 a year.... is this any good...
    I'm going to try and see if they'll change it to a 36 or 39 month lease with 15000 miles... I currently own an 03 Altima but my moms getting that car and I'm getting the new one... any comments

    $299 a month "sounds" cheap, but 48 months is too long for a lease. It defeats the purpose of leasing since you are stuck in the car for so long.
    I think I'd start getting tired of the car even before 3 years, but I could deal with it. 4 years shackled to a lease could turn into a nightmare. You always see people posting trying to find ways to get out of a lease early only to find out they can't without spending thousands of dollars.
    Find out what the payments are with 36 months and 15,000 miles per year with no money down.

    That $5500 is a huge discount, if it is for real. If I correctly understand Edmunds pricing, the $5500 is to be deducted from their TMV??? For the base 2.5 their TMV comes up at just over $28K, if $5500 is applied to that selling price is down to about $22,500!

    We were planning to maybe buy one in a year, but if we can get a price like that now I don't think we should wait. Who knows if they will ever have such a high incentive/rebate again.

    Have you pursued this any further, yet...such as by getting an actual price quote from a dealer?

    I just Bought X-Type 2.5 with the 5,500 rebate

    Just purchased the Jaguar X-Type 3.0 with metallic paint and heated seats for $28,885. Seems like a great deal and I think it's a great looking car.
  • 307web307web Posts: 1,033
    Around $28-$29K is nice for a 3.0 even with few options.
    I wonder if they will lower the MSRP again next year for the 2005 models if this is the price it takes to move them out the door.
    Too bad for the people who bought 2002s for around $40K who are trying to sell now or even next year.
    People should be able to get into a plain 2.5 for around $25K after discounts which is around the price of a pretty loaded Camry after discounts a rebate. The Camry is much larger though.

    I assume this discount is for whatever the dealer has on the lot. Can you get this deal for a car you have to order? I doubt it but don't know for sure. I would like a 3.0 manual which are extremely rare.

  • girlpologirlpolo Posts: 5
    The $28,885 ($6,605 Discount off MSRP) was for the exact car I wasn't on the lot, so the dealer had to find it. Considering that the $695 destination charge is already in the MSRP, I figure I'm already paying for the darn thing to be delivered to the Dealership. I do think the discount provides good value for the car. Of course, domestic car dealers have to do this all the time to sell August/September is just unusual for Jag.

    Hi girlpolo, Jaguar offers 1.9% APR for 60 months on X-TYPE. Did dealer still give you this incentive APR rate at that great selling price?
  • girlpologirlpolo Posts: 5
    My understanding is that the large cash incentive is for buying, not leasing. Also, the longest I've ever leased has been 39 months. Does 1.9% for 60 months mean 'Up to 60 months' or does the leasee have to carry the lease for the entire 60 months?
  • 307web307web Posts: 1,033
    1.9% APR has nothing to do with leases. They never advertise leases in terms of APR. The 1.9% APR would only apply to purchasing.
    The do have a super-low rate for leasing though, but you do not get cash incentive with it.
  • girlpologirlpolo Posts: 5
    Thanks for the info regarding the APR. I planned on paying cash, but I'll ask about the 1.9% for a loan. I imagine it's an "either/or" situation and I would rather have the steep discount over the APR. However, it never hurts to ask and I will do just that.

    That is the lease I want. My dealer was only offering 349 w 3k down but that was for 2yrs. I don't mind the longer lease period. Please let me know the name and location of the dealer.

    If anyone has had any luck finding a 3.0 manual please let me know.


  • been looking to get into an x-type 2.5 5 speed the last three weeks. was seriously looking at the s60 but decided to hold off.. glad i did with
    the jag incentive they are offering now. still shopping around but the best price i got so far for a zircon 2.5 manual is 22661 - just add tax and tags.
    anyone know of any dealers offering a lower price ?
    also am looking for a 3.0 5 speed
    one more thing, where are these jags made ?
    i know they are assembled in the UK but the engine - are the 2.5's made in Japan and the 3.0's made in Germany ?
  • jeffp1jeffp1 Posts: 7
    Where are you guys seeing the incentive? The only thing I see is the marketing incentive to the dealer for $5,000 that goes through the end of September. I didn't see a range (some posters have listed 5,000 - 5,500).

    Also, I assume the $6,000+ discount mentioned above was negotiated, not a manufacturer incentive.

  • 307web307web Posts: 1,033
    It looks like the $5500 is for the 2.5 and $5000 for the 3.0.
    That is from Jaguar, so there is still additional room for the dealers to discount from MSRP before they even apply the incentive.
    And they should since if they were hot-selling, there would be no need for the gigantic incentives in the first place.
    I wonder what this means for 2005 models?
    I can't imagine everyone is going to go back to paying $5000 more unless they scale back their production and sales targets severely.
    Isn't 2005 the last year of this model also? I read that they are dumping this Ford-based platform soon.

    Test drove a 3.0L X-Type tonight, along with a Volve S60 T5 AWD. Both nice cars.

    The jag was a little smoother, brakes more sluggish. Volve was sportier, had slightly better handling, the leather was nicer and I think it was a tad quieter.

    Out of the gate at both dealerships they mentioned incentives and being ready to deal. When leaving the Jag dealer, he said the deals were $200 over invoice.

    Not sure which way we're leaning yet...

    Hey Cooklaw,
    A 2004 3.0 manual is a rare breed. In the U.S., you can only get them with the sport package, which adds 2.5K to the price. The dealership in Cincy is pretty big and they never had one. The sales reps here say it's special order only.

  • d12watchd12watch Posts: 1
    We just bought 2004 X-type 3.0 Zircon color w/ premium package, heated seats, reverse park for $29,845 in Central NJ.

    Hope Jaguar fixed most of the earlier problems with the X-type. Been wanting to buy this car since 2002. Still can't believe we are paying $10K less for this car than if we had bought it in 2002. VERY EXCITED!!!
  • What exactly is done with the 3.0 recall performed on my x-type when it was in for 10k
    maint. it pertained to shunt hesitation on accel,
    and i havent had the time to follow up with the dealer
  • just adding on, i believe it is a tsb, not recall,
    and the code is s953,reprogramming ecm with wds
    any help or info greatly appreciated
  • 307web307web Posts: 1,033
    They say they move move some production to Eastern Europe or China.
    I think this could hurt the already shaky image.

    I'm sure they are not making money on the X-type with $5000 to $5500 incentives and giant incentives on the S-type also.

    I would lease if I got one to make sure I wouldn't be affected if resale value plummets even more than expected. - nist_levin&sid=ajLTlVZFY0bY

    I am debating between the Ebony/charcoal and the British racing green/champagne color. Which one do you guys prefer?
  • bigbevobigbevo Posts: 1
    What do yall think about 2002 3.0 xtypes that were loaners at the jag dealership? They have about 8k miles on em and they are asking 24k. What are the thoughts from the experts?

    I live in New England, and the local dealers are offering the base model for $22,995 delivered.

    I'm willing to travel a few hundred miles if I can get a better price. My questions are: 1) has anyone seen a lower advertised price? 2) has anyone seen any 2.5 in the Salsa (red) color?
  • wibblewibble Posts: 569
    Has anyone dealt with any of the dealers in the San Fancisco bay area? I'm looking to travel down from Oregon in the next week or so. Any advice, recommendations gratefully received.
