Wondered if anyone else is experiencing this.......

I'm stationary at forward exiting my driveway or at a T-junction and turning right.

Start to pull away turning hard right and get a split second sensation of wheel slip on left front wheel, the kind of thing that might happen if say wheel was driving over a wet leaf of wet drain cover or small patch of ice.

Thought this may have been the case initially but has happened too frequently to be the reason, All very strange.

Is anyone else experiencing this or can offer suggestions as to what might be happening?

Yes, I've noticed this a few times on full lock.... It sort of 'jumps' perhaps the grip of the tyres can't cope with the rate of turn.....

Yep ... happens every time with me when I have lock at anything over about 90%. Used to happen on my Evoque at full lock.

I think it's worse on the 22s ... a side effect of damn big wheels! You get used to it.

If you put the ASi traction screen on you will see it happens at the precise moment the AWD system engages front wheel drive.

Happens to me too. First thing every morning in fact. Bring back Roman roads!

This is an issue my previous XF had. The Pirelli P Zero tyres are so stiff in the tyre walls that when cold they cannot cope with the twisting effort of steering and rolling. Once you've done two corners does it go away?

I get this on the 19inch P Zeroes on my car. For my previous XF, Jaguar gave me (yes - free - no payment!) a full set of Goodyear Eagles I think and they were less prone to it. The design of low rolling resistance tyres makes the tyre walls quite rigid. The more the rubber flexes, the warmer the tyre gets the more energy is used in rolling, bad for mpg! Low rolling energy tyres are worse than others at this. Some tyres suit different cars better than others.

As I only have a 2.0dI can't test this next theory, thrash the car on pulling away, does the spinning wheel do the same thing :) this is not a serious suggestion by the way, unless you turn off traction control.

^ you also need a gearbox that doesn't go "what? .. sorry? .. you want power? .. oh hang on ... let me go find some ...." :lol:

... by the way I just watched yet another review on YouTube complaining that the 0-62 of the F Pace is much slower than manufacturer claims, yet AGAIN they are pulling away in 2nd!

Have to add to the list, at first i thought it was something on the road its like at ABS system knock feel but i was accelerating, i guess its something as said you get used to, i found being slight more subtle on the accelerator pedal has helped and not trying to hammer it. :)

How strange, I was going to post this!!! The dealer demo I have is way worse than my identical S on 22"'s. It can be a proper jolt, as if the wheels are not turning at the same rate as the car.

I'm 100% convinced its tyre scrub in cold weather on full lock because of the low energy tyres not flexing as they ought.

I had this too, only from start leaving our underground garage. (apartment living)

I put it down also to tyre scrub as it disappeared when the car was returned (warmed up)

Is it a factor of the turning circle? doesn't seem as tight as my Disco 4 was.

I have noticed it seems to only be when the car is cold, same junctions, and warm, perfect take off.

I had this turning 90 degree hard lock into my road with HOT tyres, I thought there was a man hole or something, but not! Same route in the Ranger and nothing except for a little rear wheel spin till the DSC cuts in!! Defo not these tyres!!
