2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Hood Is Misaligned

September 2, 2014

2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

The hood of our 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe does not align properly. This car is on loan from Jaguar and did see some miles prior to joining us, so I can't say for certain this is a build-quality issue. But it's there, nonetheless. Take a look...

This is the passenger side above the wheel opening. Its panels line up nicely here.

On the driver side it looks like this. I tried to catch both sides at the same angle, but I can tell you that, in person, the misalignment is stark. Next time the car goes in for a service we'll ask if the hood can be adjusted. However I have a feeling that if one side is flush and the other this far off there's more going on here than hood alignment. We'll see.
