Love my I-Pace, but tough decision:
I've brought my I-pace into the dealer 3 times for "Traction Battery Fault".
First time at 1k mi, they said nothing was wrong, and I saw the error a few more times and didn't worry about it.
Then at >15k mi, it kicked the "Traction Battery Fault" and reduced power so low that I was capped at under 30 mph.
I brought it in, they had it 2 weeks, and said nothing was wrong.
Then in under a week, it refused to move with "Traction Battery Fault".
After 30 days in the shop, they called and said they must ship the car out to have it worked on.
It has 16k miles and 13 month of ownership, and 2 months in service total.
I am waiting for feedback from JLR NA, but I have no confidence in their service depts. I don't think they have a robust troubleshooting system for the I-Pace. Arrgghh.
I think I'm going to force a buy back, since I cannot get a replacement for a Photon Red FE, and my faith in reliability is shaken.
It was my favorite car of all time, so this is really tough. I've never lemon'd a car. The car is excellent, the service is not.
