What should I look for in a used Jaguar E-Pace estate?
The E-Pace will have been used on school runs and in urban car parks so check the bodywork carefully for scuffs and dents and look at all the alloy wheels and make sure they haven’t picked up any kerb damage. Damage caused to the underside of the car from off-road excursions is rare, but work checking out for anyway.
Despite it being a relatively new vehicle, the E-Pace has had a number of reported issues; from panel fit and paint defects, AdBlue fluid leaking from hoses and filler caps, air breather pipes rubbing on engine components, creaking rear suspension and glitches with the infotainment system. All these could be teething issues of early cars and not be representative of the entire production run (although, this is still hardly acceptable of a premium product) but it is worth checking all these areas when you go to view an E-Pace.
If you do find issues, the E-Pace is still under warranty, so your local Jaguar dealer should be able to sort them for you.
The E-Pace was too new to feature in our most recent reliability survey, but other Jaguar cars haven’t traditionally fared well in our previous studies. Jaguar as a brand finished in a lowly 28th place out of 34 manufacturers.
