X-Type 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,650 miles


I own the following automobile: 03 Jaguar X-type [xxx]. this car was purchased in July of 2002, from howard orloff Jaguar in Chicago Illinois. This car has given me nothing but problems. I have had the car serviced several times last year, for engine ticking, and the check engine light coming one. This year, I have had this car serviced three times for the following: 1. tick in the engine 2. leather discoloring 3. carpet coming from under molding 4. heating vents coming out of dashboard 5. rain sensors not working' 6. windshield wipers not automatically working 7. hole in carpet on driver's side 9. being locked out on several occasions, the alarm switches were not working, and the key would not open the door. 10. the transmission gear box has been replaced, because the transmission jerks, and there was a ticking sound coming from the gear box. 11. the car would not start; they had to replace the battery. I am having the car towed tomorrow for the following reasons: 1. ticking in the engine 2. the check engine light keeps coming on 3. ABS system malfunction light comes on 4. there was an excessive amount of brown "stuff" leaking from under my car yesterday. 5. when I got in the car and cut on the heat, I did not have any heat. 6. the car would not start, three times in a row...then it just started up 7. the car will not allow you to take the key out of the ignition although this is an entry level Jaguar, the car does not have that many miles on it, and it should not be giving me these major problems...especially the same issues over, and over again.
