So my car is at the dealer in Sacramento, it had a update on the infortainment system and when I took it I told them of some of the things I noticed.

So the creep mode is on, but the car won’t roll going from Park to Drive or reverse at times. Not always sometimes. If you tap the speed slightly the break releases and it starts to move again.

We tried it at the dealer and when it went from park to drive it felt like the car is trying to move but the breaks were holding on to it and than my break lamp would come on, even though the car was on Drive. If I tap the speed a little it released and moved? I didn’t think that was normal and the dealer agreed. It’s been with them for 3 days now and they can not seem to figure that out.

Anyone else noticed this issue or similar?

My car has now been at the dealer for 8 days and they still don’t know what’s causing the car not to move smoothly from park to drive and start to roll on creep mode. I asked the dealer to test other I Pace they have to see if it does the same thing. Maybe it’s just the way it is suppose to perform, but no answer from dealer. They waited 2 days for their engineers to respond on what they should be doing, which made me upset that 2 days for a respond on what they should be looking at on a brand new car.

I have had resistance at times with creep mode in reverse, but only exiting my garage. It seemed like the sensors were detecting nearby obstacles I had to give the accelerator a bigger nudge. However, I don’t recall it holding onto the electric brake as you described.

I stopped using creep mode about 4 weeks ago and haven’t had any issues with forward and reverse.

The interaction with the sensors is just a guess. Please keep us posted.

So my I Pace is still at the dealer for over 2 weeks now. Dealer has seen what the car is doing and agrees that I Pace should move smoothly going from Park to drive or reverse with Creep mode on. The one thing that is concerning is that when when the dealer tested it going from Park to Drive, with creep mode on, the Car tried to roll like normal but it did not, it made scratching noise and the Park light came on. I did not pay attention to the park light coming on but the dealer did on multiple occasions. So they recorded what the car was doing and have sent it to UK for Jaguar engineers to tell them on a fix. Nothing yet the dealer has tested multiple things , such as breaks, batteries and now waiting on UK to decide what to do. The dealer tested other I Pace that were on their lots and all of them did the same thing. I think UK is testing the models out there at this time to see if it’s the same as they asked for the dealer to record a video and send it to them.

Does anyone hear little squirrels, like the suspension making noise when moving from Park?

I have a similar issue. I just have to wait a second when I change gears F to R and vs versa and the emergency brake releases and it will start to creep again. Small issue that's not driving me crazy.

Sorry Abs2780, I don't hear any odd sounds. Normally the only sound I hear is the air suspension changing the drive height, but that is more of a short "chunk" sound from the suspension change.

With Creep turned OFF: I've noticed the I-pace seems to have a soft "park" mode if I'm stopped at a traffic light. A small blue sign on the dash will say "park"... and another sign that says "ready". If I let go of the break
it won't roll. I also notice that if I'm parked facing up a hill it won't roll backwards after stopping but it has no problem rolling forward if I'm stopped facing down a hill.

It gets really tricky when you try to enter one of the car washes that pulls your car through using a roller next to your front wheels. I always have to tap the accelerator slightly to get it to unlock the wheels.
and then I'll press and hold both mirror buttons to get them to retract. hot tip of the day.

Both Creep On and Creep Off are buggy in some instances.

Every now and then there will be times where you will want to set or release the Parking Brake to insure the car behaves. Know where the lever is and practice using it.
One of the methods to leave your car 'running' is to put it in N, and manually set the parking brake. The car will not turn off when you exit.

The little blue sign is telling you it is ready to do parking assist if you want to park the car. The READY light just means it is at a stop and it is ready to be driven.

One should put it in Neutral if going through such a car wash. The owners manual says to that automatic car washes "are not recommended."

Yes, it does have a feature to prevent roll-back, although I have to engage with the brake pedal on some slopes.

My experience, high regen, and one-foot driving style:
Coming to a level stop has no problem engaging the brake.
Coming to a stop light with a slight nose-high slope will engage the brake after a little roll-back.
Coming to a stop light with a steeper nose-high slope requires human foot assistance to engage the hill holding brake action.
Coming to a stop light with any nose-down slope will not engage the brake and human foot assistance is required until ready to proceed.

These features are covered in the owner's manual/iGuide. I suggest reading it and loading the iGuide onto a smart phone. iGuide has a decent search function to find this information.
