Thanks all. Like I said, JLR was awesome. They did the buyback contingent on me getting a new 2019 or 2020 JLR product. No restrictions on what to buy, whether off the lot or ordered in. I initially ‘built’ a RR Sport, but decided I didn’t want to be in the F Pace loaner that long and my wife wanted a decent 3rd row seat, so I found a Discovery on the lot I could live with. It certainly isn’t the best 3 row SUV on the market, but I’m impressed by how well it drives. Certainly not as nice as the I-Pace, or the RR Sport, but really nice nonetheless. On the highway it is every bit as quiet as the I-Pace.
It uses the same Touch Pro (but not Duo) as the I-Pace, even uses the identical software version as I had on the car. Telematics is 16.2 and OTA is enabled. There is zero lag in the system, including the rear camera. No need to wait for a slow boot, CarPlay works as designed and I’ve had zero WiFi connection issues. I don’t understand why the infotainment problems in I-Pace.
I have a few options not available on the I-Pace (i.e. electric adjustable steering column) but I am missing a few too. The price you pay for picking off the lot.
Best of luck everyone! JLR has certainly earned my respect on handling problems. I honestly didn’t think my issues warranted a buyback so was very surprised when they offered. Woohoo
