Today I decided to turn off some features I had enabled.


The down tilt on the rear view mirrors, and the enhanced access setting (lowering the chassis on turn off).


I did not find them useful for my needs.


I did try the universal window up/window down setting, with the global setting enabled. It worked well with the door button technique and the fob open/lock controls, both held down until it completed. That will be handy when I don't have time to precondition the cab before a trip, to help relieve a heat buildup quickly even before I enter the vehicle. Also if I leave the vehicle without raising my driver window, it's nice to get it up without re-entering.



My other activity was giving my brother and friend a test drive. They took turns in the front and back on the round trip, and pronounced they were impressed. They complimented the roominess, the large skylight, the quality of the interior, and the performance.

Yes, I've also benefited from experimentation. Gotta set it up the way you want to.

I've taken a liking to Dynamic Mode. It's a nuisance that you have to enable it at the beginning of every drive but I find it worth while. It's so good that I really don't forget to turn it on when I start driving. A simple press of the button and you're off to the races. >:)

I'm mostly in comfort mode myself. I figured the suspension would be a bit more forgiving that way.



Do you find dynamic a lot different?



One thing I just noticed is that powering off the car puts it in park automatically. It makes sense it would, but it was a slight surprise.

One of my favorite, although quite minor, features. JLR took advantage of the lack of a mechanical shifter to do something that makes total sense!

However, killing the engine while in Park and opening the driver's door... now that typically runs averse to what I want.

I did the same about 8 weeks ago -
- turned off the mirror tilt and the access height as it really wasn't needed.
- Also turned off creep mode and high regen. I personally find the ride more comfortable and the car will coast a bit when the foot comes off the pedal, so I'm not interested in one pedal driving right now. Also keeps the break lights from coming on when you lift off the pedal to slow, so acts a bit more normal for those following.
- Tried turning off emergency lane keep, but it comes back on every time you start the car. I'm hoping a later update will allow it. This is different for LKA with and without cruise control on. Emergency Lane Keep tries to detect if a car next to you is coming into your lane. However, I get too many false positives on a particular road, which makes it a nuisance.

Its funny you said that, I find the suspension too bouncy for my tastes (20" wheels) in comfort, so I switch to Dynamic. But I don't always want the aggressive throttle so I just turn that to comfort or dynamic based on my mood. I am happy leaving the suspension and steering on dynamic.

My other vehicles do this is well. Unfortunately the IPace fails to switch to park sometimes, which I don’t discover until the car refuses to lock...

I don't like that last behavior either.


I'm beginning to think it makes at least a little sense, though. The main drawback is cutting off the a/c for remaining passengers, but leave the fob there and they can start the electrical system (without the brake depressed, no worries on the car getting into gear) and have the air blow (or heating continue). I'm driving solo most of the time anyway. So it's mostly a minor annoyance that I'll grow to think is ok over time, I expect.

It is very annoying and the work around that I suspect most use to avoid it - putting the car in Neutral (or leaving it in drive) and putting on the parking brake is less safe than simply NOT shutting the car off because it is in Park with the door open. The other annoying result of this is the only way to open the tailgate in that mode is with the button on the dash! It makes little rational sense!

Almost every EV I have had has the same behaviour, it turn the engine "off" when the driver opens the door to get out, if left in Park and key in car. It must be either a safety issue, or that it is very common for people to leave their cars "on" and drain and walk away. Also would allow someone to drive off without the key.

The Leaf was the only car that allowed this and my wife kept leaving it on.

I noticed sometimes when I get out, with car on, the car automatically turns off when I close the door and sometimes not. The car will honk at me if I try to lock and it's still on. Not sure why.

I, too, have noticed that opening the driver's side door doesn't 'kill' (turn off) the car 100% of the time. I've been wondering what specifically determines whether is stays on or off... any thoughts???

I wish the screen would declare shutting down in 30 seconds with a button to delay 20 minutes.
Can remain locked in Park until the key and driver is detected.

It is tied to the seat belt. If you put on and then take off the seat belt then it always shuts off. If you do not use your seat belt it stays on.

I have not attempted, but trust your reporting. Now, can anyone suggest *why* it behaves this way? What logic is behind this? Bewildering...

Not that case in my situation as I always use my seat belt

Here's what I have found, and I tested it.

If you want: to get out of your car, but leave it 'running' then you just leave it in D (drive) and come to a stop. Then, open your door. Strange as this sounds, it will leave it in D, but apply the parking brake for you and allow you to exit the car with it sitting still (I have not tried this on a downhill, but it works on my driveway). It will beep at you, and let you press OK to acknowledge that the parking brake is on and the car is running.

If you put the car into P (park) and THEN open the door, the car will shut itself off. But, if you don't put it in P, then it stays on.

If you press the OFF button, while in D (drive), it will put itself into P (park).

I did find that all this "thinking for you" is making me fall into bad habits. I drove my wife's Chevy to a Circle K last week, and just blithely got out of the car and went into the store leaving the keys in it and running.

Ah that's much easier than first putting it into N and then manually applying the parking brake, which is what I've been doing. Thanks for the tip!

Kinda crazy that it works that way ..

Question: Is the key on you or in the car? What happens if the key is in your pocket and you move out of range?
