I called the local dealership to ask them about a specific maintenance schedule as I just reached 10,000 miles. With my Tesla Model S I always brought it in for maintenance every 10,000-15,000. The Jag service department told me it would be every two years which really made no sense to me. Even the service rep didn't seem confident and told me he really wasn't sure but was guessing it to be every two years. "This is all new to us and I'm really not sure" wasn't very comforting to me. Has anyone heard of a specific maintenance schedule for our cars??? Thanks!

Two years seems like an excessive timeframe to go without inspection. I've always taken some comfort in a safety check by the dealer at least annually, even for cars I barely put 5k mi/year on. Brakes, steering, suspension, wheels, etc. all have components that, if they fail, could quickly put your life in jeopardy.

From “Passport to Service” manual (came in the leather brief with the hardcopy of the I-Pace manual), page 20, service is every 2 yrs or 21,000 miles, which ever comes first. I can’t remember where I read it, but the first service must be done within 1 month of your 2 year mark or it isn’t covered for free.

21000 miles or 2 years, "which ever comes first." My dealer sales person informed me of this at purchase. Said the only real wear is tires and brakes, but he estimated the brakes would last 75K miles if you drive with regen braking for the majority of the time. I have a heavier foot, so I don't expect to last this long the way I drive the iPace.

They do provide full inspection when I go in for any other event like they did for the regen brake recall. I got the normal vehicle write up sheet that covers all the areas and everything was marked in the green section.

I received a service appointment schedule reminder from my dealer for 4/19/2020, 8:00 am on Sunday, that would be approximately 11 months after my purchase date.
Not sure what to think of it as the dealer is closed on Sundays, let alone the service department.

I'm pretty much forced to take my I-Pace in for service like every 6-8 weeks, so...what's the point of "regular scheduled maintenance every 2 years?" :surprise: One time every 2 years would be a dream come true. LOL!!!

I checked my owner's manual (Canada) and it says 34 months. The service manager said 33, I guess, to avoid my being late!

So far no issues at all except for the passenger door not opening from the inside - fixed in 10 minutes under warranty. Owned for 4 months, 6,000 kms.

Perhaps the difference in maintenance schedule is due to metric versus standard calendar..... Lol.

Looks like my first service will be about April 2020. I will be about 22,000 miles by that time. I have not been back to the dealer since the purchase. Very pleased.

Mine just started nagging me at the 18,000 mile mark and 2 years. It has also contacted my dealer auto-magically so now the dealer is nagging me haha. So I suppose I’ll take it in but I don’t know what there is to check other than brakes and I rarely use those with the one-pedal high-regen driving I do. Guess it’s beer to let the car decide when it needs service.

The service amounts to a brake fluid replacement (DOT 4 brake fluid tends to absorb moisture over 2 years) and a cabin air filter change.

You might think the brake fluid is sealed up, but actually there is a small amount of "breathing" allowed at the cap to allow for expansion/contraction due to temperatures, the pumping/return of fluid during braking, and account for brake fluid that fills the calipers as the pads wear down. That little breathing allows moisture from air humidity to get in.

The heat generated by the fluid compression of braking also breaks it down little by little over time.

I've changed brake fluid on cars where where the owners thought it never needed to be changed. The owners were surprised at how much better the braking ability was after the flushing.

True, the EV physical braking system is used less, but lit still a periodic fluid change.

I have no idea what kind of air you drive through. For me, 2 years for a cabin air filter change is pushing it a bit long. There's a lot that gets blown off the farm fields.

I am due for my first service, approaching the 21k miles, had the care since march last year. Gotta love the list: top off fluids? maybe flip the tires? I did think brake fluid lasts a lot longer than that? On our combustion cars, we usually deal with brake fluid much less frequently. Is there something different about the I-Pace brake fluid system or is the maintenance schedule assuming 2 year is more the norm for owners?

2 years is industry standard for DOT 4 brake fluid change on all vehicles. It gets ignored quite often.

Coolant may need topping off. There are two separate coolant systems. The owners guide shows how to check levels.

The Jaguar remote app tells me my service is due in 19,101 miles. It is quite a new car though...

I had this same issue. What happens is the 2 years starts from the date of sale for maintenance. If the dealership did not reset the maintenance timer at date of sale then it ends up reminding you at 2 years from when it was manufactured. They reset mine and now I just have to manually keep an eye on the 2 year time or 21k miles.
