F pace engine seized


Recommended Posts

Help…F pace 44k miles 2017. Juddered for 10 secs then engine died. Apparently it is seized and needs £10k to replace. Oil level fine, no warning lights or issues beforehand just managed to freewheel to side of the road.

Recovered to Jaguar garage who have taken a week (& charged £160 for diagnostic), ‘compression problems and bits of metal in oil’ it’s always fully serviced by dealer who have now referred it to manufacturers.

Trying to decide what to do next;

1) pay for (hopefully part of) it and repair

2) trade in as is and lease while the whole diesel/petrol/electric power debate rolls out

what would you do?

Apologies if this update is posted incorrectly, I cannot discover how to update my original post.

The dealer has today offered 80% contribution towards the replacement today which makes repair rather than replace a more viable option. Albeit we will have been without a car for a month meanwhile.

I had similar issue on my 2017 F-Pace last week, dealer got me 80% from JLR. I called them and argued then demanded to speak to a manager and he came back and said they will pay 100%, the diagnostic was also covered in this.
I quoted consumer rights act of 2015, sold faulty goods and told them they have 1 opportunity to repair or replace and must do so without cost to me, in a reasonable time-frame and with out causing un-necessary inconvenience. They offered a hire car if the dealer did not have a loan car. I should get my car back next tues with brand new turbo, engine and DPF fitted.

My 2019 F-Pace engine has seized with no prior warning lights or alerts. This seems to a rather too common problem to be attributed to some type of user fault alone, as I and many others I am finding who have maintained their F-Pace properly are having engine seize. 

Considering possibility of class-action litigation in USA - if any one is interested or has information regarding this issue please reply or contact.
