The Jaguar F-Pace is an upscale luxury SUV that is pretty much popular for its quick and agile drive and poor reliability. Oh! Yes the Jaguar’s reliability is still questionable in the US roads but why is it so? Let’s learn more on this top up luxury vehicle from Jaguar that in spite of adding many high class features gets poor ratings from consumers across the US.

The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace gets a 247 hp turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine, the same from last year; the main update in the 2019 model is that it now gets a 550-horsepower 5.0L Supercharged V8 with a new F-Pace SVR trim. Active safety features to keep it competitive now comes standard. However, the usability and practicality of the SUV still remains on the lower side.

Jaguar has a pretty good past in terms of manufacturing the best looking cars or rather sedans, with desirable performance and luxe interiors. The quality inside and out is impeccable and feels luxurious, however the things that worry you in a Jaguar F-Pace is its stiff ride quality, noisy cabin and a poor infotainment system. With that said, cars from JLR stable are notorious for not being reliable SUVs.

How reliable is the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace?

Jaguars have always been given the name of being ‘unreliable’; they have always been susceptible to breaking down or having higher costs of maintenance. The reliability factor of the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace is the only poor factor of the car, otherwise, the car performed well in other departments. To know more about its reliability factor we will later discuss the JD power reports of this car and how it performed according to the organization.

The estimated cost to maintain and repair Jaguar F-Pace ranges from $80 to $2972, with an average of $271. Jaguar F-Pace as is, the true cost to own for 5-years will stand at $71,510. The build quality, chassis, and engine of a car determines its reliability factor pretty well. If we especially talk about this model from the Jaguar in terms of reliability, it performs average. However, its chassis is strong, the engine is decently powered and the design quality is pretty much nice but still, the scores from the JD power say otherwise.

How well did the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace score in J.D. Power Report?

J.D. Power is a global company that rates an automobile based on its overall quality and reliability as well as the brand value. It compiles this data with various other data such as the dealership experience driving experience reviews, customer satisfaction, and more. As a result, provide an overall score out of a hundred.

2019 Jaguar F-PACE SUV

2019 Jaguar F-Pace scored a total score of 72 out of 100 in the JD power ratings. The organization rated this car in 4 different departments, scores are mentioned below:

  • Quality and Reliability- 68 out of 100
  • Driving Experience- 77 out of 100
  • Resale Value- 75 out of 100
  • Dealership Experience- 74 out of 100

As we can see the car scored an average score of 68 out of 100 in quality and reliability, so we can easily assume that the reliability factor of the car is not that much good. However, we can expect good reliability reviews from it in the future.

Has the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace had any recalls?

For the 2019 model though, Jaguar conducted one recall regarding engine failure caused due to faulty design or manufacturing of the crankshaft pulley retaining bolt which might have caused the crankshaft pulley bolt to fracture. The company conducted the recall and replaced the faulty component, free of cost.

Have there been any consumer complaints about the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace?

Talking about the consumer reports or complaints, the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace registered only one consumer complaint as per the NHTSA. The complaint was regarding the engine of the car.

2019 Jaguar F-Pace Warranty Coverage

2019 Jaguar F-Pace comes with a limited bumper-to-bumper warranty of 5 years or 60,000 miles; whichever comes first. All of the coverages are also valid for the same duration. The following are the coverages that it provides:


2019 Jaguar F-Pace

Limited warranty

5 years / 60,000 miles

Powertrain warranty

5 years / 60,000 miles

Corrosion Protection Warranty

5 years / 60,000 miles

24-hr Roadside Assistance

5 years / 60,000 miles

Compared to its rivals, the F-Pace provides the longest warranty, however, it is short-handed in the corrosion warranty that it provides.

Is the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace a reliable proposition?

F-Pace is one the best offerings from the brand and is the highest-selling Jaguar too. This car definitely brings a box of revenue for the brand, however, it lacks behind in terms of reliability. The infotainment system is too glitchy and some of the interior panels feel too cheap for a Jaguar. Also, the 2019 model registered a recall which made the customers in doubt and the sales were dropped. However, we expect it to perform better in future models.
