This is the fifth time it has been in for this issue. I'd still don't know what's going on, other than the car shaking violently whenever this issue happens. It seems to have begun after the O2 sensors were updated.

Their main shop mechanic, at my dealer who I trust and love and am patient as possible with, is working with global headquarters to diagnose the problem and they're doing it step-by-step. I'm at the point of not even feeling like I own the car anymore, though it is still under warranty. I sort of wonder if I should take this opportunity to have them buy it back at high Blue Book, and sell me a new car at cost. The issues started around 22000 miles, and I'm at 38000 now. Lemon law doesn't seem to apply. I do love my dealer and they are nothing but wonderful... They even wanted to take care of a couple payments, but I bought my car out right.

They are very very serious about working with me and making sure I'm happy. It doesn't hurt that I'm 41 years old, very patient, very happy and kind, and likely the type of customer they will want to keep loyal into my senior years. It's been fun to have pseudo car subscription service for my loaners, where I'm always driving some interesting and different car. I might end up buying an Evoque because of it.

I'm only laying this down in here, because I want to know if this is a problem that has occurred at all with anyone else, with the F-type. I prefer it to be a completely aberrant issue, isolated to me, because I would end up more patient because of it. But if anyone else has ever had this experience, I would like to know about it to see if that situation might inform my experience. It is something about the fuel mixture running too rich, cylinders misfiring, and what I think somebody told me on these forums is that fuels dumping into the catalytic converter, likely damaging it, and that's where the violent shaking comes into play. I'll get the codes if they make a difference, gentle readers, thank you.
Good morning Uncle Fishbits,

Thank you for your comment on the thread.

I am sorry to learn that you have experienced the concerns raised in your message.

Please could you kindly PM me your vehicle details, your address and contact details and the name of the approved retailer your vehicle is currently at to enable us to look into this further for you.

Thanks, Stacie

Hi Stacie,

Since a week the rerun-app has vanished from google-play... .. just when I got a WiFi camera to try it out.
Do you have any idea when it'll be back ?

I'm posting this here because it's a potential safety issue. If you have jumper cables for the car, do not place them in the trunk as you won't be able to access them if the battery is dead. Instead, place them somewhere in the cabin (I put mine now in the driver side space behind the seat).

p.s. this thread could use a little cleanup as I noticed a lot of conversational posts which is not the intent of the thread (see the OP) and reduces usability. It's better to summarize the issue here, and link to a separate thread for conversations/follow up.

Will see if I can flag it for a tidy up.
Hear. Hear. Thanks. I read the whole thread. It would be nice if there was a list of SSMs, preferably referenceable by problem.

Default Manual Clutch issue

What a great thread Guys...Really helped me with some of my issues so, Thank you.

I had to pull away quickly a couple of days ago to avoid being hit by a speeding Range Rover...Manual F-Type registered September 2014 2016 M/Y My clutch slipped so badly that the smell is still lingering in the cabin now...Only done 20,000 miles.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers.

No adjustment. Has to be replaced. Only alternative to OEM parts is a high performance clutch kit and billet (single mass) flywheel from SPEC Clutch. The downside to that option is that setup has not yet been tested. The prototype is sitting in my garage waiting for my current clutch to fail.

Default Leather seat separating?

Tried to do some searches for this latest issue I just discovered on my 2018 F-type R-Dynamic. The driver's side leather seat has separated from the base of the seat -- take a look at the pic. I didn't want to make the issue worse, but you can see from the pic that the actual seam has come loose from the base seat such that you can peel it back to see the foam inside. Nearly the entire side of the seat has come loose.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Clearly, I'm going back to the dealership to have this dealt with but is my ask for a repair or replacement of the whole seat?

In my experience and based on the JLR SOP of replacing rather than repairing for pretty much any warranty claim they will replace at least the top half of the seat if not the whole seat.

From what I can see in your picture, there is nothing damaged on your seat. These covers are held in place by a rubber pressure bead that is sewn into the cover. These beads fit into a channel in the frame. Yours just came out of it's channel. Most probably, it was not installed correctly in the first place.
Your dealer should be able to put it back in place in a short amount of time.
