The Jaguar is a British marquee that has been building cars focused on luxury and performance. Like many British automakers, the Jaguar was also a brand that fared quite poorly in reliability. The earlier cars from the brand had a reputation for falling apart way too soon, and this did affect the sales of Jaguar quite badly in the United States. However, things have been improving, and the 2021 Jaguar F-pace R-Dynamic S400 showcases this.

Ever since the arrival of the Jaguar F-Pace in 2016, the brand showed tremendous improvement in the reliability factor. The organizations like J.D. Power and NHTSA have also reported about the rising reliability of the brand. Can the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S400 outdo the European competitors like Mercedes Benz GLC, BMW X3, and Audi Q5 in the reliability front? Stick to the review to find out more.

Has the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S400 had any recalls?

To know more about the quality and reliability of any cars, we use the data from the NHTSA - National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website, which tells us about the recall history, consumer complaints, investigations, and other manufacturer communications of any cars sold in the United States. 

According to the NHTSA, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace attained zero recalls from the manufacturer. What is more reassuring is that the 2020 Jaguar F-Pace also managed to get zero recalls from the manufacturer. This information helps to shed light on the reliability and dependability of the newer generation Jaguar vehicles. The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S400 is a higher trim of the Jaguar F-Pace and hence the recall history would be the same for both.

Has the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S400 had any complaints from the customers?

The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S400 is a higher trim of the Jaguar F-Pace, and hence the user complaints history would remain the same for both.

Warranty for the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S400

Jaguar is a brand that we adore when it comes to warranty. The brand provides the best in class warranty of 5 years/60,000 miles with all its cars, and this is something that other manufacturers need to adopt. This also shows how confident the brand is in its vehicles, and further would safeguard the customers from issues that might crop up in the later stages of ownership. However, Jaguar’s powertrain warranty is quite vague and will vary according to the vehicle’s condition. Below is the detailed information related to the warranty of Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S400:

  • Limited Warranty: 5-year/60,000 miles; whichever is earlier

2021 Audi

Pros - Seats are power-adjustable, space, storage cubbies, SiriusXM.

Cons - Gas guzzling V8, costly options.

One of the most reliable options. My RSQ8 is the best when it comes to the power but the way it delivers it is smooth and comfortable with easy to drive. The handling is good and it moves effortlessly in traffic as well in congested spaces. The infotainment screen is big, bright, and responsive. The interior is good. It is Spacious and airy. Seats are comfortable, and it has a number of good features as standard. Bulky styling The brakes work fantastically, which I feel makes me feel safer, rather than trying to rely on airbags, and belts. Excels in almost all conditions. Got a good deal so I? happy with what I paid. good team of staff
