Maybe I just like car parks .. but I tend to visit my local Waitrose daily. It's about 1/2 mile from home on my daily route.

Anyway this means I have a daily opportunity to use the gesture tailgate and reverse traffic approach .. both of which are absolutely brilliant. Love them. Very effective. I find the gesture tailgate easier than poking around for the tailgate button (always seem to find the camera first!) and the reverse traffic approach spots moving vehicles from a good distance away that are impossible to see otherwise.

I've only tried it a few times with no great success.. fairly hit and miss.. I need to have a proper attempt to find its sweet spot.. Think the neighbours think I'm doing the hokey-kokey with the car.

Are Jaguar liable injuries from the gesture tailgate if.... you are carrying a large load, stand on one foot, swing your unloaded leg merrily under the car, fall over and injure yourself? Seems to me the idea is sound but if the load is heavy you could do this, especially in winter on a slippery surface.

I'm pretty sure the manual is littered with disclaimers!

About as much as they are liable for you having a crash as they created a car to drive :)

Also how about the little hooks on the sides ? Great useful little thing.

Yup much better than the ones in the Evoque for holding on to shopping bags.

Selling something that's potentially dangerous..... A decent lawyer could get Jaguar for this, maybe in USA where they fight for their rights a bit more than here? I'm not saying its right/wrong but really, telling someone to stand on one leg and wave your other leg around while carrying a load is a bit silly isn't it?

I'm not really saying this will happen but could it? There's always some idiot that is too literal with instructions and then guts hurt and sues! If I'm carrying a heavy load to put in the car, I'd probably have opened the tailgate before I lift the damn thing so I carry it for a shorter time, called thinking ahead!
