Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

Honestly a 2003 X type may not be the best choice. There are some costly high mileage failures which seem to come about around near 100,000 miles. These include the transmission, transfer case, electronic throttle and other electrical issues. I would recommend having a Jag specialist garage or dealer inspect this vehicle before purchase.
