It appears that many of us have owned remarkable cars. I also feel that the Ipace is my favorite car ever that actually feels like a combination of my last two cars- Porsche 911 and Cayenne. I had the #3000 Tesla Model S 75 and sold it after one year to get the 911. My IPACE has the agility of the 911 and the utility of the Cayenne. But it is faster and more fun to drive ... and unique. I never miss gas stations and I try to behave while driving but Jes-o-pete this jag can pace. Over the years I have had a Jag S type, XJ8L and even a MKII years ago. The IPACE is all quality and as swift as you could ever handle. I recommend the IPACE without hesitation.

I have also owned a Porsche Cayenne S, and I currently own a Porsche 911 Turbo S. We sold our Cayenne and bought an Audi SQ5, which we owned for six years before selling it and buying an I-Pace. I've also had a wonderful experience with the I-Pace so far, and I would recommend it. I wouldn't say that it offers the agility of the 911, but it's certainly impressive for a small SUV, especially considering the weight of the I-Pace. My wife is the primary driver of the I-Pace, and she loves the fact that it's unique. There's a Tesla on every corner....

I am currently at about 4,000 miles and ownership since November. This is my daily driver and I actually look forward to going to work and driving home, even in traffic. Always hoping to be the first one stopped at the traffic light, so I can see everyone else in the rear view mirror. I do not usually speed excessively, so the aggressive drivers who got left in the dust like to scream past me a few miles down the road as if they have accomplished something. LOL
"bumper car acceleration" at redlights and stop signs!

HA! I hadn't seen this post before but I have exactly the same experience and enjoyment of being first at the light- especially when I'm in a 55mph zone. And the psyche of standard driver is the same here- they eventually have to blow by me. Most frequently Ford Focus GT's for some odd reason!

I agree it is the best car I have owned including S Class AMG Mercedes which were my cars for 40 years. Fun to drive, beautifully finished inside, lots of Torque and no gas stations or tune ups.
Only wish I have is - to have an extra 100 miles of range.

Funny, I tell people my 2 previous favorites, GL550 and Corvette, mated to produce the I-Pace. Awesome combination of styling, performance, handling, and practicality. The I-Pace is the ultimate Luxury Sport+Utility EV. I don't miss the 3rd row as much as I though I would, and given I've driven over 25,000 miles in 20 months, I've probably saved $5,000 on gas alone vs. the GL. The I-Pace is still so uncommon I get "What is that?" even as the car enters its 3rd year on the market. Only regret is I didn't wait a year to get one of those crazy $20-$30k discounts off the price.

I traded a 2014 M6 for my I-Pace and I don't miss the M6 at all. Love this car. I had a Panamera and still have a 740i but I never drive it. The I-Pace is just such a great car. Wish they would spend a few $ to actually advertise the car. Leave it to JLR to bring out a world beater electric when gas prices drop to a 25 year low...lol.

Welcome! I love Iceland. My first I-Pace now lives in Iceland.

Did you buy it new or used? Either way you may try to reach out to JLR corporate and start a conversation with them about it. Perhaps they'll find you a solution. Best of luck and best wishes, and keep us posted!

Yes, I would (and have) recommend it - with caveats. It's more fun to drive than a Model 3, in my experience. It has its quirks - for me, nearly all of them software - but I happen to have a new Disco Sport on loan from JLR. The multimedia system is well sorted. Good, even. I gather the new I-Pace is receiving the same system. With that system, some suspension improvement, and the ability to attach a tow hitch, the I-Pace would be the perfect car for me. So I have to recommend it with those caveats, and what I view as Tesla's "killer app": the Supercharger network. The I-Pace is not a good roadtrip car if you're hauling bikes or probably anything else on the roof. The loss of range is significant - 80 miles off a full charge. Fast charging would solve that problem. So would being able to attach a hitch rack due to its lower drag, but I digress. For drives less than two hours, it's fantastic. Longer if you don't put anything on the roof. Charge at your destination and go home. No car I'd rather be in. Same for traffic, mostly.

I think you have to consider the car and the support network together and that's the problem for me.

I love the car, it's imperfections are annoying but this is magnified 100 times by the frankly incompetent dealer support in the UK.

If this is similar in other markets how could anyone recommend ANY JLR product not just the BEV.

I have faulty AC in the middle of summer. I face a 7 week wait just to get the car seen by the only dealer that is remotely convenient and God knows if they will fix the problem or ask me to come back in another 2 months.

The combo for me of the car faults and a dealer network incapable of swift fault resolution means I just could not recommend this or any other JLR car and it has put me off buying another iPace or Range Rover when we come to switch my wife's car shortly.

We have 2 I Paces. Love them.

Would strongly recommend I-Pace with ONE CAVEAT! Investigate the dealer you expect to use for service. If that dealer regularly services I-Paces and you get good feedback from other owners...BUY .

If the dealer doesn't have a well trained, experienced mechanic on the I Pace...DON'T buy there! You will have issues and you will be frustrated

I've had my 2020 for two full months and no problems to speak of. The car is lots of fun to drive and very versatile. I'm coming from a C7 Corvette and BMW x5. All these cars are nice but I like the I-Pace which is like a cross between the C7 & X5 and I'm off oil. I don't miss gas stations.

I admit the stories on these forums have me concerned. It seems like many of the issues have fixes. But of course there are problems that linger for some. Seems like the main software and AC issues have a fix.

I currently have a MY22 on order. Worried about a new infotainment system. But hoping that it won’t be a problem

No car is perfect. I wish the I pace was the “future“ for Jaguar but it’s a placeholder.I suspect they coming out with a new vehicle platform for 2025 that will be scaleable so they can use it multiple vehicle.

I’m still considering a polestar. People on the polestar forums have had less serious issues it seems. But the closest polestar space is 250 miles away for me. Too far to bring it in for maintenance or repairs (and no Volvo Dealer in Chicago will work on polestar)

I like having a dealer network of 331 shops that can sell or maintain my car. The Fiskar Ocean looks interesting too.

As an I-Pace owner, would you recommend the car to friends and family?

Im an advocate for the car and strongly recommend it, but I also set the expectations based on its quirks.
Depending on the person I might steer them towards an E-Tron or Taycan
Shortly after we bought our 2019 I-Pace SE we were ready to declare it a lemon and not look back. Car was in twice to replace cells in the drive battery pack. One each shop visit. First time we had to have the car towed out of our garage. Wouldn't move and couldn't get it into neutral with the parking brake off. Dealer told us how to release the brake manually. The tow company with two trucks (including a flat bed) finally got it to the dealer. Long story short after this misery was over (yes, Jaguar paid for a rental since they were all out of loaners) we have grown to love the car and are thinking of keeping it longer than our original plan of five years. We'll see what the competition is a couple of years from now. We used to be BMW people (had an i3 BEV and loved it except for the limited range, but feel that BMW has lost their way. No i5, the i4 is a rehash and the iX3 is made in China. Groan. Hope Jaguar gets their act together while I watch the Forum and see how many problems others have had............

Recommend? Really? Given the actual numbers of these vehicles sold and the constant complaints about typical and not-so-typical Jaguar issues and how there are many conversations about how to get buy-backs. H.E.L.L NO. Hvac is bad. Super slow menus. Awful range. Recommend? In fact, I have talked four friends outta considering this vehicle. One went with an E-Tron. One put a deposit on a Lyriq. The other two went Tesla. Glad I could help JLRNA.

Hey Bucky, Did you ever post photos of your car showing the deer strike damage, I am interested to see what was damaged.

Cheers, Steve
