Yes, absolutely buy a warranty!!! Those cars have the same drive-train, chassis and set up as the Lincoln LS and everyone knows those can be headaches. The transmissions are know to be BIG problems, and that's just the start. Get the best, most inclusive warranty available! Good luck!

What is the code for my 2002 s-type jaguar radio ?

Radio codes are normally dependent upon the serial number of the radio. You obtain the serial number off the radio and contact the dealer and they can give you the code once you verify that you are indeed the proper owner of the radio.

I am thinking of buying an 02 x-type 2.5 with 80,000 this a solid car reliable car.or is it a make with a history of problems

they are very expensive to fix, hard to find parts for. they drive very well, from a drivers point of view they are an excelent car, but sooner or later you'll need service and its going to cost more, you have to decide weather the great drivability is worth the extra maintance costs. but as for common problems there are not really any, the car is well built.

We have owned the car for 4 years and only 78,000 miles. This is the first problem we have had. My wife loves the car. The engine fan is not comming on and the car is overheating when in stop and go...

Maybe it´s the thermostat, it´s located at the bottom of a "T" called "upper hose", but dealer only sell the entire "T" hose, not only the thermostat

Annual maintenance cost of 2002 mitsubishi lancer glxi

I would recommend you purchase a car that will strain your budget less - how good is owning a car that worries you? NONE --
Always - Also - take down the Vin # - call the local dealer and ask about recalls and service bulletins - you will be amazed. Some recalls must be fixed for the life of the vehicle.

2002 Jaguar X-Type 3.0L Sedan 4D buying this car with 78,000 on it? from dealer what concerns should i worry about , its 8400 price. what is the est life of engine?

First of all when you are looking at buying a used car, see if you can have a certified technician look at it (someone from a different dealership) before you buy. Things to look at for sure:

1. Prop shaft (as indicated in solution #1). Once you get up over 50K miles it tends to whine, definitely in colder climates.
2. Hoses. The X-type is known to spit out "Evap Leak" codes (check engine light will come on intermittently). Remove the plastic cover from the engine block and check the hoses there for cracks and splits. The hoses get hot when the engine is running and cool down when the engine is turned off. It makes the hoses brittle and causes cracks/splitting, etc.
3. Have the transmission checked. This car has a "lubed for life" system on a lot of the parts, including the tranny.
4. Have the transfer case checked. This controls your AWD and is known to start to fail after the 60K mile mark. (most dealerships will tell you the x-type needs its auto tranny replaced every 3-5 years!)

If you find this information helpful, please rate our solutions.
