You should buy a 2006 Jaguar X-Type - in November of 2010

An interesting tidbit from Forbes' list of Worst Cars of 2005:
Kelley Blue Book says that after five years, a 2006 X-Type will retain only 21% of its original value.
This means that a car that costs $33,000 today can be had for less than $7,000 in the autumn of 2010 (and that's $7,000 2010 dollars). Will today's high school freshmen be driving to college in an all-wheel-drive, 3.0 liter V6 Jag with wood trim and leather seats? How times change. I drove a Yugo.
