2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Nailed It
April 29, 2015
There is no better way to wind down a long day at the office than jumping into the 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe and roaring through downtown Los Angeles when traffic has cleared. After a late night photo shoot, I grabbed they keys, fired it up and...there was the low tire-pressure warning. The instrument panel displayed 22 psi in the right rear tire. The recommended tire pressure sticker in the doorjamb stated 36 psi.
I was in a rush to get home and left the Jag to sit overnight in the parking garage. The next morning, we checked the tire with a gauge, which now read 10 psi. Rolling the car back, we found a nail in the tread. The leak was slow, so we inflated the tire slightly over the recommended pressure and proceeded to Stokes Tire Service.
They were surprised to see us so soon after our last visit for the same problem on the same car in the same tire. They patched the tire and had us out the door in less than half an hour.
Total cost: $30.00
