    I'm leaving this topic open see what you think.
    I was having a conversation with a fellow X Type owner yesterday.
    He said it is not a Jaguar but a Ford.
    The conversation was a bit of a shock but trying to look from both sides i can see the thinking behind it, not saying that i agree but can see it.

    I was having a conversation yesterday with a fellow X Type owner who said that the name Jaguar should not be on this car,
    he said it was built in a Ford plant when Ford owned Jaguar and has Ford parts fitted.
    I was a little taken back by this what do you think?

    The chap said he loves his X type has had it from new and not had any major issues with it, but it is not a Jaguar.

    What do I think ?

    Boring, Boring, Boring!!!!

    It is generally agreed that 19 -20 per cent of the X Type shares a commonality in parts with the award winning very good Mondeo.

    I do not think we will ever stop these armchair critics spouting rubbish.

    OOOOH! Aston Martin V12 has two Mondeo engines.

    About the only ford part I can see in the cabin are some switches.

    Jaguar started out using chassis and running gear from the standard motor company, what on earth does that mean?

    This old chestnut again!!!

    It is a Jaguar. Sure it was made at a time when Ford owned Jaguar and was 'based' on the highly successful Mondeo, and many of the parts are inter-changeable, which makes a lot of sense from a manufacturers point of view - why reinvent the wheel when you have the basis of a perfectly good car already coming off the production line? But ask yourself this, would you rather drive a Mondeo or a Jaguar? I know which one I would rather have. Just compare the interiors and the level of spec.

    In my opinion, Ford saved Jaguar at a time when the marque was in the wilderness. They managed to make several successful models that kept the brand alive until they were able to sell it on to Tata - who as we all know have taken it to another level.

    Jaguar only used the highly regarded Mondeo sub-floor to save the design cost, then built up the rest of the vehicle with Jaguar parts in the Halewood (Jaguar) factory. Some parts were then sourced from Ford and Volvo as do most other manufacturers.

    Jaguar X Type or Ford X Type

    So what? The new F-Pace engine (V6 diesel) is built in the Ford plant..
    The debate on what the X-Type is really is petty. Anyone who takes offence at it really should look at the simple facts, the platform the car is based on is a Ford one, but the car is 60% stiffer than the Mondeo and other cars that use the CD 132 platform. The diesel engines are directly lifted from the Mondeo but there were demanded due to fleets who couldn't justify the V6 petrol consumption and the families who wanted something that wasn't German. The estate X-Type had more cargo space than the A4, 3 Series and C Class it competed against.
    The XE when first launched used a Ford engine, not Ingenium. The F-Pace uses a V6 diesel that is built in the Ford plant.. No one says they are ford cars and even if they were, some people need to stop association of ford as being poor quality, thanks to Ford you have front screen heating, no need to scrape the ice off.. Thanks to ford some of the best cars in motorsport were made, the GT40, the RS 200, Escort RS Cosworth, Sierra XR 4x4.. One of the most comfortable and luxurious cars I've been in was a Ford, a Ford Scorpio. That car had electronic everything and was every bit as comfortable as cars in the XJ price ranges.
    Besides, if not for Ford, Jaguar and Land Rover would of gone down the toilet like most of British Leyland did. What's more, BMW bought Land Rover to get the hill decent technology and learn how to make a 4x4 that actually works, they did a half arsed job on the Discovery 2 which went out with no selection for diff lock, just high and low range and the rear lights in the wrong order, Ford put that right and we got more interior options and diff lock back and a much better car.

    I've had cars from all over, but I for the last 10 or so years have only bought Land Rover and Jaguar, but I have been looking at the new Ford Vignale. There is nothing wrong with a Ford car. Infact, it's due to Ford that there are so many things right with the X-Type.
