It just didn't go anywhere. I put it on D and tried to go forward. Nothing happened. Tried to restart it couple of times but no help. SO took another car. When we got back it was moved from driveway so it wasn't permanent failure.Chutche said:Just wondered what you mean that the I-Pace jammed.
So it had an electric steering wheel column? I thought it was not an option, which I also thought was strange in a premium car....MjrPayne said:I drove today prototype First Edition with had electric steering wheel column with sport seats. Only that unit managed to just reversed out of parking lot and jammed there. So took another prototype which didn't have electric adjustment with standard seats.
On my F-Pace it was an option but having had it on my previous XF and found it useful I decided it wasn't worth bothering on the F-Pace, mainly because I'm the only person who normally drives my car and I hardly ever change the position because the seating position is more upright and it's easy to get your legs from under the wheel. Also I believe that the F-Pace version only allows movement up towards the windscreen and back wherwas the XF allowed the wheel to move towards the driver as well and the seat memory system also moved the wheel away from the driver when the keys were taken out of the ignition - making it easier to get in and out of the car. But the XF has a much lower seating position and you are nearer to lying down so the gap between your legs and the wheel is more critical. Because I'm the only driver and the adjustmet is limited I wouldn't pay the extra even if it were an option but if two of you were sharing the driving it might be useful to have. I wonder what happens to the drivers' seat settings if both front seats are occupied and both have their key fobs with them? It would be impressive if the car could tell which of you were driving.Blackseries said:I seem to remember that a number of Norwegians who signed very early FE contracts (Jan / Feb 2018) we told their cars would have electric steering wheel columns (I think it was even in their contracts) …… it all seems to have gone quiet on that front recently though.
It does seem very odd the I-Pace doesn't have it especially as the keyless entry is so personalised …. even down to streaming preferences..... plus every other JLR product at this price point has it.
