Probably the finest car I have ever owned For looks handling price the R type is very hard to beat. MINOR FAULTS MANUFACTURERS NEVER LISTEN TO CUSTOMERS TOO ARROGANT A)Option for height control on front every drive way/car park i scrape the bottom B)3 INCH Sunvisors now we know Britain never has sun but come to California C)Since average age for a $120,000 car is around 60 why not comfortable softer seats Its like riding on a skate board Please send this to Jaguar FAULTS IN 6000 MILES NONE
Another owner with the joke of a clutch. Gorgeous design, full red leather interior, more fun than a barrel of monkeys at the track. Until you need to be in the next gear, and you've run the engine up over 5000RPMS. Or merge onto the freeway. Or simply accelerate quickly for any other reason. 1-2 is bad. 2-3 is impossible. Clutch will not engage for anything. Ruins the whole experience and it's getting worse with every added mile. Jaguar says go to the dealer. Dealer says it's normal, talk to Jaguar. Jaguar says we'll call you. Talk to Jaguar, they say take it to the dealer... Unbelievable.
Pure Heaven, except...
The release of an F-Type Jaguar with a 6 speed manual transmission was a dream-come-true for purists that patiently waited 50 years for the return of a Jaguar with something close to the iconic beauty of the E-Type. And, under normal or mildly spirited driving conditions, the promise has been largely fulfilled. Unfortunately for the minority of owners of this car who will actually be taking advantage of this cat's prowess, severe disappointment looms. Trying to recreate the manufacturer's 0-60mph claims, the driver will experience the frustration of a clutch that refuses to hook up after a fast shift. Over 50% of the owners of the MT version on a popular enthusiast's forum are experiencing the same issue. Even though, the clutch holds just fine once it is fully engaged, it just does not have enough clamping force to reign in a spinning flywheel. I notice that the part numbers for both the flywheel and clutch plate have been updated. Perhaps Jaguar has resolved the issue for the 2017 model.
