My F-Pace S got pushed back another month last week. This is causing me to think about it more and more if it's really worth it. Right now I'm putting around in a Grand Cherokee. The question I have for you is, is this car really worth it?

Help me restore my confidence!

Hmmm...Pushed back one month... That's 4 weekends. Just plan something nice for those 4 weekends and wait for the weekend to njoy it and forgot about wait time. I am very sure one month will pass very soon. I would say wait for it. It is a very nice car to look and to drive

Yes, I am sure it is worth it, but the bigger question is WHY was it pushed back so much? When did you place the order and now when do you expect delivery?

Lad, think about what's going on. JLR doesn't want to make anymore cars with the substandard creaking suspension. That is the reason for the delay. Do you want it now with a creaking suspension,or wait a bit longer and get an F-Pace with the correct parts for the suspension?

Mine is coming 7 weeks late but reached Georgia this morning. I own a 2013 Grand Cherokee Overland with only 7k miles. I cannot wait to trade it in on the FPace. The wait is worth it.

What kind of deal you think I could get on an S with a lot of creaking?

I would assume the delay is because of the spoiler correction on the S trim.

I thought hard about bailing on the F-Pace when mine was delayed, delayed, delayed with little to no explanation from the dealer.

I looked at Macans -- 10 to 15K more for an equivalent spec. Plus I had driven both the S and the Turbo at a Porsche event. Was not impressed in the least. (I was very impressed by the Cayman and 911)

So I hung in there. Picked my car up last Monday. Love, love, love it. So glad I did not bail on it due to frustration.
