We had our Jag for 6 years (2004 to 2010) my wife loved it it was a 2004 3.0 X-Type AWD ... I still get to hear about it here and then why I traded her for a Benz
from my wife, It was a fine automobile they made in 2004, my friends of course called her a Ford. She handled well all year round, no complains. I just wanted a different DD at the time.
I don't know why people would dislike the Jag, it was a fine car when I owned it. Bet the new one is even better. We went for a Benz in 2010 as our DD since Jag at the time did not have the same size as our former Jag, only the larger one. I bet my wife would go for the new one in a heart beat.
