Benefits of Driving a 2008 Jaguar X-TYPE Wagon

The 2008 Jaguar X-Type, the smallest and most affordable Jaguar new model currently available, has standard all-wheel drive and sporty handling, with a nice ride and luxurious interior. The Sportwagon stands out as distinctively different when compared to German-brand competitors.

What's new for 2008?

For 2008, Jaguar's entry-level luxury car gets a subtle facelift, including a revised mesh grille. On the sedan, rain-sensing windshield wipers become standard, while inside, upgrades include improved standard features like ten-way power seats for both driver and passenger, with driver memory, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The X-type is slated to be discontinued at the end of the 2008 model year.

Model Strengths

  • Standard all-wheel drive traction
  • supple ride and handling
  • luxurious interior appointments.

Model Review

The compact 2008 Jaguar X-Type is available in two very well-equipped models: the 3.0 sedan and the Sportwagon. Both models are powered by a 227-horsepower 3.0L V6, which is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The engine is tuned for strong mid-range torque, which sees it dash to 60 mph in only 7.1 seconds while also returning 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway.

Jaguar Refaces the X-Type

Source: The Car Connection

Jaguar has revealed a facelifted version of its entry level model, the X-Type sedan and wagon.

Engineers say there are 500 new components in the car, which will go on sale early next year. Visually the most obvious elements are the revised front and rear bumpers, new side sills and protective moldings, plus door mirrors with integrated turn signals.

Inside, the speedo and tach have been refreshed, and there's tungsten and chrome detailing around the air vents and steering wheel controls. The front seats have also been redesigned.

Additional technology includes a more advanced Bluetooth system, revised parking aids, and the availability of DAB digital radio inEurope.

A diesel automatic transmission will also be offered for the first time, pairing the 2.2-liter diesel with a six-speed sequential transmission.

Among the new options are different exterior and interior colours, a new rosewood veneer, and two new designs of alloy wheel.

"The new X-Type stands for accessibility, versatility, luxury, and choice within the Jaguar range," said CJ O'Donnell, Jaguar's global marketing director. "The package of revisions - particularly the automatic transmission in the 2.2 diesel - presents our established dealers and the key emerging markets with an excellent opportunity to reach new customers and retain existing owners."

No word yet on the car's fate in the U.S. market - or on Jaguar's sale from the Ford empire.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Jaguar Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

Terms include 6 year/ 100,000 mile limited warranty.  
Age/Mileage Eligibility 5 yrs or less from inservice date/less than 60K mi
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection 150
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Yes
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible No
