Prestige 20D AWD Auto

Post by monalisasmiler » Thu Aug 09, 2018 2:21 pm

I have just bought a new F Pace and done its first 300 miles motorway run this week but have found a few issues with it wondered if any others had experienced this when slowing to a stop and then setting off the car is very slow and needs a lot of acceleration to gain momentum and then can be noisy due to the revs.

On driving at 80s on the motorway I found it kept pulling to the right and wavering a bit has anyone else experienced this? Disappointing that the wing mirrors have to be pushed in on such an expensive car.

Thanks.

Mona

Hi Mona,
Regarding your first issue the recent thread "Engine noise on moving off" maybe what you are experiencing.
RDB1describes it very well. Have not experienced your second issue.

Have you checked your tyre pressures, that could account for it? . . . they have been known to be all over the place on some new vehicles if the dealer hasn't carried out the PDI properly.

Door mirrors only fold automatically on vehicles equipped with the memory seat option, but I agree, it's nonsensicle that they don't all fold as standard. I find it can be a useful visual check that you've locked the car when they fold in automatically, but if you need them folded because of the width of the vehicle, then even when folded in the mirrors hardly physically move in much more than an inch or so anyway, so it's a pretty pointless design aspect really.

I’m not sure about the R-Sport but electrically folding door mirrors were standard on my Portfolio.

Wait until you find there is no washer fluid warning, unless you upgraded from the basic headlights this is the standard! I'm sorry to say but Jaguar cut corners in the wrong places in my view. automatic folding mirrors on a car so wide should be standard (I accept the point that it makes little difference but hopefully will reduce chance of being clipped by passing cars when parked), same with fluid alert! But you still have a car that most people envy and I'm sure you will enjoy it once you understand and accept these few annoyances and possibly get used to electrical items not always working at random times (this is just from my experience of two new Jags).

I'm afraid the sepcification of the Prestige is not great, a good deal less than you expect from a Prestige Jaguar, even my wife's Kia Piccanto ( her choice ) has folding mirrors.
Second gear start certainly deters any ideas of beating any kid in a hatchback away from the traffic lights and a Mitsubishi PHEV SUV will leave you for dead, you just can't put your foot down and go, it's a characteristic of the car, exactly the same on the 3.0D only more so. To get the 0 to 60 times advertised they must have used 1st gear and changed manually.
Do check tyre pressures, on a level road it should run straight, one irritation I had was the Lane Departure warning vibrating the steering some way before the line, it can be turned off.

Great tip Catwoman - bought my car a couple of hundred miles away contacted local dealer who have said can take a look at the tracking as it mabye the steering but at a cost of £85 it seems ridiculous having spent nearly 40k that they still charge when the car is new. I will take a look at tyres, thanks so much.

Many thanks will check this out - local dealer wanted £80 to check tracking, it seems a pity having spent nearly 40k on a car that they will not offer some things.

It is I seem to have gone backwards from what I had previously, electric seats, speed camera warnings sunroof but hopefully I will grow to love it :D I love the outside of it had just hoped felt better when driving but hopefully your tip about the tryes will sort it thanks so much :)

Thanks I agree totally about the being left for dead when trying to put your foot down, considering swapping already - have selected lane departure warning only nothing came on, also had previously speed camera warnings on my Qashqai but haven't located on here as yet.
