First Jaguar - may be last

Recommended Posts

Following some work contacts with JLR I was persuaded to buy my first Jag. Plumped for an E Pace. A 8 week delivery turned into 6 months. Ive a browser that defaults into Chinese, a ubigi sms that im advised does not have enough data to be useful, fuel consumption is very poor, voice control that has a mind of its own and a radio that has poor reception range, and at the last minute JLR changed the aerial shark fin to black and not car colour which looks quite ridiculous.Add in the fact that I've an awful screech when driving each morning for about 15 seconds, don't know if it's brakes or steering, I look at the car and wish I'd went for a Kia or Toyota!

Must be bad. 3 threads running on this now. Have you thought of taking a full page ad in the Times perhaps? Better coverage than 3 threads on here.

My apologies, unfortunately the new car didn't come with a sarcasm filter. 

Yep I did pose a question (re schreecing noise) looking for some help and was advised I'd put it in the wrong forum (EPace) therefore asked in the general forum.

If I realised asking a question precluded one from making a general observation around my experience of buying a 1st Jag (incl long delay, shark fin, radio coverage, ubugi SIM data, infotainment language etc) I would have saved oneself from the bother. Obviously I got confused between an open car forum and Pravda. My humblest apologies comrade!

Hi Bluey.

I've just bought a 2-year-old F-Pace and have had nothing but joy driving it around, so I hope you get your issues sorted soon.

I have put a Virgin mobile Data SIM (2Gb) in my F-Pace (yesterday) and so far it works OK.

Had a few issues setting it up - I had to manually add the Access Point Name (APN) settings, as it didn't automatically connect to the 4G network.

I've never driven an E-Pace, but I hope you eventually get the same enjoyment I am having with my F-Pace.

CBers.

Thanks for that tip which confirmed its a SIM issue. Even changes any devices attached on the hotspot to Japanese. Tried that and it works but as I've already a Ubigi 36 month data package prepaid reckon Jaguar should be sorting and shouldn't have to pay twice.

Did you ever get to the bottom of the screeching and do you still have the car?

Unfortunately not. Dealership have not covered themselves in glory, and unfortunately this screeching is now just one in a list of faults from software issues to a tailgate that doesn't open properly. Some days I've no radio, no sat nav or hands free. 

I did offer a local builders merchant if he would swap me a skip for my E Pace. He declined as apparently his skip actually works ok.

At least my local uber drivers are getting decent business from me!
