1687 miles and all good, but (battery) clouds on the horizon?
As someone who regularly read these forums while waiting for my car, I generally left both excited, and worried. As has been pointed out many times, people are more likely to rant than rave, so it is to be expected.
With that, my latest update -- I've never been more happy with my car. It's all their - performance, looks, utility. One of my friends was so impressed that he just bought one too.
OK, with that out of the way, I have noticed a disturbing trend. Until this weekend, the car always fully charged to 282 miles @ 100%. Yesterday it charged to 245 miles @ 100%. After a 150 mile trip yesterday, I charged last night to 228 miles @ 100%. I've seen a few posts noting this trend.....not sure this is a good fact and would welcome thoughts. I generally allow the battery to drop below 25% before charging; however, I did do a top-off last week (battery at 79%, charged to 100%) in anticipation of a longer trip.
As for other nits:
1) I experienced a near brake lock-up in a traffic situation last week. On the highway a car well in front of me inexplicably began slowing down, causing the car in between us to slam on his brakes. I began to pass when the collision detection took over, nearly locking. I was convinced the car behind me would hit us, as the brake was too much for the situation - fortunately we all avoided an accident.
2) The mileage estimator is reliably poor. I would estimate at best I get 80% of what is predicted. I drive in Comfort mode and reasonable conservative (I get all greens on the Jaguar EV stats).
