White 19 HSE arrived at 17:15 18 April 19 having been shipped from dealer in GA. Sienna tan seats.

I was going to purchase it last month but after striking a deal, the dealer told me the car was recalled for "sacrificial canisters" (crash related items behind the front bumper skin). They had to get parts and fix it before they could sell it. As of this posting, I haven't found any recall notice registered with NHTSA.

It worked out to my favor as the Jaguar discount offer went from $3000 to $5000. :smile2:

I also got a Juicenet Pro 40 charger and it worked fine in a test.

I have never heard of sacrificial canisters, but for $5000 I would sacrifice a certain left part of my anatomy. :)

It's been 1 year as of today that mine was delivered to me. The car transport driver said he noticed a lot of head turnings by people trying to see what he was transporting from GA to OH.

I went through the software upgrades, recalls, etc., using two different dealerships. No complaints about either of them. The longer software update took nearly a week to force 19B into the car since SOTA didn't work. SOTA did work for 19C after that.

The only unique-to-this-car repair has been the little air deflector on the underside of the car forward of the left rear wheel. It came loose, rubbed on the tire, and wore off the end of it. It wouldn't stay in place. Dealer replaced under warranty but that came loose too. I tried a repair but that too was short lived. Finally, I put a plastic rivet in it on the outboard side (I posted about this) and that is a permanent solution. Later, looking at the parts diagram, I found that there are some missing clips for this piece so that explains why it didn't stay in place.

Additions to the car that didn't come with it: Cravenspeed front license plate holder, Weathertech floor mats (even though I have the Jaguar rubber & carpet mats) and Lampgards, Click & Go hooks and hanger (I have Click & Go base built into the seats), mud flaps front and rear, cargo area rails, luggage retention kit, warning triangle, roof shade, quilted load space liner (not always installed) and bumper protector.

Charging has been predominantly at Chargepoint chargers (mostly at 50kW chargers), with lesser charging at EvGo, and a few times at Electrify America. I've charged at home with the now older model JuiceBox Pro 40 without issues. I did validate that the Jaguar provided charger works, The plastic bag it comes in was too flimsy for any daily (or occasional use) so I have in an inexpensive 12-inch tool bag from Harbor Freight. A 15-inch tool bag also works without being too big. They both fit in the frunk.

I've been asked about it quite a bit with one woman following me into a business just to ask questions. Everyone who has been in the car loved it too and were impressed by its fit, finish and acceleration.

It has been a good choice for me. I've got 15,435 smiles, oops, I mean miles on it as of this typing. :)
