25: Jaguar X-Type (2001)
The Jaguar X-Type is a fun-to-drive and well-designed car if you can find one that still runs. The X-Type was a notorious failure for Ford, as the company owned the Jaguar brand. The problem with the X-Type was that it wasn’t a Jaguar at all, instead, the platform was used in many other Ford vehicles. Reliability on the X-Type was downright awful, and consumers would spend more time in the shop than on the road.
Repair costs for the X-Type were also very high, which didn’t sit well with a lot of consumers. You couldn’t buy a brand new X-Type without coming back to the dealership time and time again. There was a limited-edition V8 model of the X-Type but this too had a lot of reliability issues. The value of the car on the used market is barely anything and parts are expensive.
