Does anyone know if the wheel bolt pattern in the same between my Wife's 2004 X-Type Jaguar & my 2006 Escape??

I'm wondering if the doughnut spare from my Escape would work as a spare for her car??

There might be a issue with the offset. Maybe JP has a better answer for this.

Sorry if this is a little off topic here john, but how do you like the x-type?
Have you had any major issues with it?
We have a test drive booked for the 2.2L Common Rail Diesel next weekend :wave:

2004 X-type: 5 x 108mm bolt circle, 12 x 1.5mm lugs, 52.5mm offset
2006 Escape Hybrid: 5 x 114.3mm (4.5") bolt circle, 12 x 1.5mm lugs, 45mm offset

That figures, right?

My Wife LOVES these cars, she has owned three of them & we have never really had any issues with any of them.

I work at a car dealer & we buy the Jags fairly cheap at the auctions, they lose a TON of value in the first year of ownership which works out great for me. My Wife's current 04 is a 3.0 with every available factory option & we bought it with 15,000 miles on it for just over $20,000.

The Jags have an awesome warranty that covers everything (oil changes, brake fluid flush, tranny service etc etc etc etc) for five years & we get rid of the cars & upgrade as the warranty expires.

Great engine, Same engine that was used in the Mondeo ST TDCi over here. 155 BHP and a shed load of torque.

Think I'd take the manual option though. :)

My friends Dad has a 3.0 Sport X type, and his brother has an Audi TT (185 version). He reckons the X type is waaay quicker than the TT, and a nicer drive too.

Are the 2.2 Diesels 4x4? I think the 2.0 diesel is FWD only.

I have driven both & I would definitely agree with that.

I prefer engines with alot of low down torque & power. The Escape's 3.0L needs to be revved too hard to get torque/power I feel.

The 2.2 doesn't come in a manual option :( I miss driving a manual.

And i'm not too sure if it is AWD. I'm sure we'll find out next saturday on some backstreets ;)

Gotta agree with that. I was surprised just how hard you have to work the 3.0 to make decent progress. I've said it before, but my Wife's Fiat Stilo Sporting has a 1.9 diesel, 150bhp, 225lbft torque, 6 speed manual and it flies!!




This one is identiacal to her one, except her one is silvery grey.

I have to be careful whenever i drive it as i turn into a boy racer, I'm gonna and up with a ban if i'm not careful. :doh:

We saw lots of those in Italy last year. It's really sharp. The last Fiats that made their way to the US were the Strada (Ritmo elsewhere), the X1/9, and the Spider, and I don't remember how long ago that was.

I sure wish our Focus looked like the one Ford is selling in Europe. That car is sweet.

Diesel's have come a long long way over the years.
My Dad's Toyota Hilux Pickup is a 2.8L Deisel. I get really infuriated with the 85 horses under the bonnet when I drive it. It'll go forever and climb Mt Everest in 1st gear, but at the end of the day it still does 0-60 in 24 seconds :wall:

Nice looking car there. I've always been a fan of Fiats.

I feel your pain. My old '59 Series 2 Land Rover couldn't even do 60. It was governed to 50! :shock:

One year I drove me and my mates on holiday to Cornwall (Far S.W of England). Return journey I did in one go and it was 9 hours!! :doh: I think I overtook 5 cars the whole way. :roll:
