Hi guys. I'm considering an 04 Jaguar X-Type 3.0L for my next car. I've decided I want to stick with entry-level luxury, and the one I'm looking at is only $9k. So just a few questions:
Is $9k for an 04 Jag X-Type (with 76k miles) a good deal? No accidents, 3 owners.
How long do you think it will last? It's already 7 years old and has 76k miles on it. I'm not familiar with Jags in terms of reliability, and I've heard mixed reactions from other people. How far do you think it'll go?
Also, last (and probably stupidest) question: Jags require premium fuel, but I've heard that giving it regular really only makes it .5 seconds slower to 60mph, and other very very minor issues. I know everyone says "Oh if you can't afford the premium fuel, then a Jag isn't for you", but still. The gas prices here are insane and if I don't absolutely HAVE to get it, I really don't want to.
Also general Jaguar discussion. :)
