First CEL came on 10 days after i picked up the car. I had oil leaks which was not noticed for a while because i never thought a new car woul have issues. Until a large puddle started to pool. I had a warning light that read something like caution limited traction 2wd mode only. This light was intermittent but on for days and then disappeared. When i took the car in for the diff oil leak they swapped put a motor on the transfer case that caused the 2wd error.SiRay6 can you please expand on your experience a little. I mean your disappointment with quality.
Also why did you have a long lead time for parts? you mentioned oil !!!
And last but not least can you keep us up to date with your buyback claim.
OMG Sounded like my case! But mine's more them rear bumper. I have recorded the noises. Anyway I can here and let you guys listen to it? Let me know how to do so please!I have a couple of issues with my F-Pace S and searched the forum already and did not find anything on this. When I am driving slowly in a parking garage or turning into my driveway slowly, I hear a click coming from the wheel well. Does not matter if I am turning right or left. Has anyone else experienced this and is it normal or something I should have service checked out? Also just this week, my center console/armrest is making a terrible noise when I open it all the way. Opening halfway is normal but the rest of the way is difficult to open and makes a terrible sound. Anyone else experienced this? Thanks!
yes, that is this recall, and it is the only real safety recall currently out:I saw on NTSA web page a possible select recall for rear axles being too short in a certain batch.
From NTSA-----Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain 2017 Jaguar F-PACE vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. These vehicles may have been built with a rear driveshaft that is too short,
potentially resulting the driveshaft separating from the vehicle. If the driveshaft detaches, a loss of drive power
would result, increasing the risk of a crash. Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the driveshafts,
replacing any that are incorrect, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 1, 2017. Owners may
contact Jaguar customer service at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar's number for this recall is H009.
I have this same issue, took it in a week ago and they did a TSB but it is still clicking. Bringing it in next Tuesday for another try. I'll keep everyone posted n what they say.Well the clicking is back again. I took it back to Aristocrat and they said there is a new service bulletin on this. They had to order parts and parts should be in on Wednesday. Will keep you updated.
Had this same issue with my first Jag a 2009 XF. After many complaints and warning them that I would exercise my rights under the lemon law they sent a field tech to the dealership. He had them swap the hub assembly from a XF on the lot with mine and this fixed the clicking from the wheel well. I'm guessing parts weren't available in the US and compensated the dealership. Odd to hear its still happening 8 years later!I have been meaning to join the forum but i have been lazy. What motivated me is the fact that i have so been so unhappy with the quality and lead time of parts/oil for this car/brand so i wanted to share some of my experiences. I have a claim open with Jaguar for a buy back.
The clicking is so difficult to explain...i would almost say its like 2 large washers banging/clapping against each other (think drum cymbals). It only happens at slow speeds like parking the car or pulling out of my garage. It was quiet at first and got progrssively louder through the span of a month. I was able to drive at 5mph and turn sharply (think slalom) left and right and it would make the noise consistently. The clicks were one sometimes 2 if i recall correctly at a time. The sound was easier to produce if the car is rolling a little. If the car is parked i dont remember if i could produce the sound.
I ordered mine in May 2016 and took delivery in Aug 2016. Build date is probably Jul 2016...i can check door jam later.
The dealership heard the sound and could not figure it out. Jaguar's tech support recommended changing out the upper control arms and shocks. That didnt do anything. After 2 weeks waiting for a tech to be flown out the tech was able to pinpoint the hubs in a day. They replaced both hub assemblies since the other side was beginning to make noises as well. I dont know the details but it wasnt just a simple matter of pressing in a new wheel bearing. The entire hub was replaced.
I do not think it's the 22" double helix wheels. I recently replaced the 22" wheels with some 21" aftermarket wheels and the clicking noise reminds there.Do any of you that are hearing the clicking noises have 22" double helix wheels? I've noticed the clicking too and was convinced that it's coming from the wheels. I could be wrong but just a thought. We may only be hearing it while making turns at low speeds because there is so much less road noise in parking lots etc.I'll be interested to see if it turns out to be something else.
It will be interesting to see what they come up with. It sounds like an extremely common problem.My car has factory 20" wheels so it is not the 22" wheels doing the clicking. I believe it is coming from the hubs. Mine is back in the shop to see if they can officially fix this issue. I have driven a few loaners and they click as well. The only thing that got rid of the clicking was replacing the hubs but three months later the clicking came back. I believe there maybe a manufacturing defect in those hubs. We will see.
