Just signed up..looking for opinions/advice

Been car shopping for about 6 months. Basically I’m in the class of the macan, sq5, f-pace etc.

The macan turbo and jaguar f-pace s have risen to the top of my list. Been having difficulty deciding from here.

I’m comparing a 2017 f-pace s. CPO with 17k miles. In service date of October 2016. So I’d get until 10/22 for a warranty. Hard to imagine I’d rack up 100k miles by then. So a good 3.5 years of coverage.

The macan turbo is a 2015 35k miles and also CPO. That has me covered for 2 years only.

I feel like these comparisons are best to death but I’m trying to look from every angle. I’ve driven both, loved both. Each have strengths and weaknesses. I like the idea of a newer jaguar, more rare, more cargo space. The Porsche is clearly a step above the jaguar..but I’m getting an older car with more miles and less warranty coverage. And it’s safe to say maintenance and repair bills would be higher in a Porsche ?

Anybody shop these 2 and have any advice ?

The Macan likely tops the FPace in performance and fit and fitness, but otherwise it's whack. Plus it was refreshed this year. Although the refresh was mild, it will further date the 2015 model you're looking at. It's an ugly car. The only Porsche SUV I would consider is the Cayenne Coupe, although it's a step up in price from the Macan.

Thank you for the input. Looks are obviously subjective. I wouldn’t have the macan on my radar if I thought it was ugly. The BMW X3 m40i was a top contender for awhile. But I just don’t like the plain boxy shape..a lot of people love that suv. And for the money, I see 2019’s selling for low $50k. I was just never a bimmer fan..the engine is phenomenal though, I have to admit that. When I test drove it I was smiling ear to ear. But I always wait a few days after a test drive. Not sure how long that straight line speed fun would last.

The jaguar (comparably) was a bit rougher ride but the supercharger gives you more of that useable speed/power. The jag also handled much better than the bmw in my opinion and overall was just more fun to drive. If I bought the bmw today I prob wouldn’t be disappointed..but again, just too many of those boxy type SUVs on the road.

I agree with you, Carmen, on the boxy SUVs. I'm getting a new car in a few months and I'm going through a similar analysis that I'll likely post about soon. I'm not a Macan fan at all (as documented in prior threads), but most on here aren't as harsh about it as I am. So consider me an outlier on this one. Ultimately, go with your gut and don't look back!

Did they specify a 100k mile warranty? Original warranty was 5 yr/60k miles

Jaguar CPO is 6 years or 100k miles (which ever comes first) from the in-service date of the vehicle. This particular car (2017 model year) has an in service date of October 2016. So Iíd get 6 years from then. 10/2022.

I could/should prob stretch and get a 2018 to give me one more full year of warranty. But these jaguar f-pace s are kinda rare near me. Iíd be more comfortable actually going and seeing/driving the vehicle as opposed to having it shipped. Iím open to doing that, but with all the posts of creaks and squeaking I doubt thatís gonna happen.

What scares me is that when I first drove the f-pace I went inside and I asked what is/isnít covered under the CPO warranty. The gentleman said..everything besides squeaks and rattles. Thatís kind of a giveaway right? After that he said everything thatís wear and tear isnít covered. But just the fact that he mentioned squeaks and rattles right away suggests that itís a pretty significant issue.

you can read a lot here about squeaks and rattles as those were originally covered under the warranty and it was just recently that they changed it to first 12 months so that is why he specified.

I think they are both great cars, but you're talking to F-Pace Owners, so we all made the decision towards the F-Pace at one point. I did the similar compare earlier on the Macan and while I like the back end, I'm not a fan of the front, and the size is what took it out of my options. The Cayenne is bigger, but in my subjective opinion, uglier as well. So I went with the F-Pace in 2016 and I just did the same thing again in 2019. I'm an F-Pace fan, so my opinion would lean towards the F-Pace up front, but with that warrantee it would be a hands down decision for me even if I wasn't a fan. Fixing both of these cars will be expensive, but I can tell you the Porsche will be more so, and you have less of a warrantee with that option.
