What should I look for in a used Jaguar F-Pace estate?
Some models may have been specified with enormous 22in alloy wheels that will definitely be susceptible to kerb damage. And the cost of either refurbishing or replacing one of those will be huge, so examine those wheels carefully.
The F-Pace is a big car and can be a challenge to fit into tight parking spaces. Front and rear parking sensors are standard to help you out, however, a rising window line and a rather small back window affect over-the-shoulder visibility. Check for any bodywork damage because this SUV is made mostly out of aluminium, which can cost more to repair than conventional steel.
What are the most common problems with a used Jaguar F-Pace estate?
Despite it being a relatively new vehicle, the F-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 InControl touch pro 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 F-Pace.
If you do find issues, the F-Pace is still under warranty, so your local Jaguar dealer should be able to sort them for you.
