OMG I wanted to like this car, but it has been a disaster. Laggy technology, idiots in the service department, slow charging, poor range, bad visibility, and the brakes...squeak, squeak, squeak...all called "normal" by Jaguar Tech service. Listen at www.jaguaripaceproblems.com to hear this unmitigated disaster. Dealer offered 50% of MSRP to buy the car back. Nobody wants this car on the secondary market.

The OP has posted a useful mod in another thread. The title is polarising, but the writer may be frustrated by persisting noises spoiling the ambiance of the I-Pace experience.

I prefer to drive my I-Pace with the audio system off, as I appreciate the quietness interspersed by the faint whine of the motors :geek:
Your post made me realise that I now drive quite often without the audio system on. I remember needing a car radio back in the 1960's mainly to hide all of the various noises and I had got used to having the radio on for all those years but now the relative silence is surprisingly relaxing!

I couldn’t disagree more; the car slips through the air like a warm knife through butter...

It’s smooth, quiet, luxurious and it corners like it’s on rails; it’s an incredible drive.

Unless you want timed charging to stop at a specified level of charge, the car’s perfect!

Would like to hear more about your issues but for me this car is the drive of your life. Even if someone else has owned that statement.

Got my HSE in November after nearly buying a 2020 Porsche Macan S. Was due to go sign all the paperwork on a Wednesday and pick up the car. Took a day off work and got a call from the dealership...salesman on annual leave but he really wanted to close the deal having tried to convince me for 12 months. With a day to kill set out for B&Q and passed the local JLR dealership. Remembered my Porsche salesman saying never go for any JLR as they're unreliable. I went in to look at the F Pace (I know right!) and set eyes on the this electric marvel. Went on a test drive and well, even after all the research and complaints about braking, infotaintment, dealers not knowing much about the car....here we are.

Now lockdown period has been interesting. Every now and again I come across a Macan review, hear the sound of that V6 and sometimes think...if only the salesman wasn't on leave. Then I take a trip to the supermarket and remember why I bought my I-pace. Comfortable, quiet, economic (charge in comparison to petrol), ease of charging at home (haven't charged in 4 weeks). My insurance policy was to only take a 3 year deal, just in case.

Unimpressed by the simplicity of a Tesla, e-Tron and EQC can't match I-pace range. In 30 months I seriously wonder if any real competition for the i-Pace will emerge!

Sorry long story short i-Pace is unavoidable :)

Originally I test drove the F Pace and the I Pace on the same day, hated the F Pace, was like driving an old tractor, the 3 litre version was better, but compared to the I Pace was still slow. Once you try the I Pace that spoils the competition for you, there is no going back IMO. My first EV and could not have made a better choice as far as I am concerned.

I have to chime in and say I have none of those things. My car has been great (and I’ve had a lot of EV and non EV cars) and my service department has been first rate.

Yeah, always best to take a lone person's extreme advice with a deal of caution. ;)
