I have a 2018 2.0 litre ("2.5") diesel F-pace with just over 40,000 on the clock. I'm finding that after a long journey, particularly a high speed motorway journey, I experience sluggish acceleration. The car is very slow to pull away from stationary or low speeds and then can suddenly surge forward - very dangerous at entrance to busy roundabouts etc. and on occasions I've been close to being hit by approaching traffic. On one occasion only, a warning that the car had entered "restricted" mode came up.

A local Jaguar specialist (not a main dealer) has looked at it on 3 occasions; diagnostics have shown a number of problems but nothing obviously causing the problem. He has reset the ECUs(?) and suggested that I take it to a main dealer to see if they can find the problem.

Before I do that, can anyone help please?

Well, if you are the original owner then you should know your vehicle and if it is acting different from new. I have the same thing and it has always been slow and hesitant of the line. That is the lag nature of this vehicle. But it runs strong on freeways and its performance hasn't radically changed since new. Sounds more like normal turbo lag to me unless for some reason your DPF is getting full and not regenerating completely.

Thank you for your comments. I am the original owner and this problem is definitely a new development. The DPF has been mentioned as a possible cause but the guy at the Jaguar specialist pretty much discounted that idea. I'll certainly mention that if I get as far as taking it to the main dealer.

Report back with anything you learn if you take it to the dealer. Always looking to learn something new.
