Another goodbye F-Pace

Post by Nubbin » Sat Dec 15, 2018 9:54 am

Well, after a year of fun in my F-Pace, I finally admitted I didn't like the jiggly low speed ride, and I have not enjoyed the slightly manic lower gear ratios which do not match the nature of the 3l supercharged engine, and most importantly my personal circumstances have changed (retired) so longer distance touring is far more likely over the next few years. My wife has kept quiet about these issues but agrees absolutely that she does not like the car for the same reasons.

So, after about 3 minutes of discussion with SWMBO, I was given permission to p/ex the F-Pace for a brand new Range Rover, and we took delivery last Friday. Obviously we took a large hit on the exchange, but so far I have to say it has been a good decision. The facelifted full fat RR is a joy to be in and poles apart from the F-Pace although having very similar software means acclimatising to the RR has been a doddle.

I liked the f-Pace but crucially I couldn't get to love it. The seats and leather were superb, it was lovely to have a brand new car and I have always had a soft spot for Jaguar the company. Still, onwards and upwards! I have a few bits to go on sale (mats basically) which I'll put on the ads.

Good luck to everyone, Happy Christmas to all, and I hope your F-Paces stay reliable and you get all the possible enjoyment out of your cars that you can!

Hm. I can't say I've experienced the same as you describe for the petrol S.
Very smooth and no jiggliness at low speed.....
Good luck with the RR though. ;)

Have to agree I did not have the same issues either, maybe it was faulty. :?:
