There are orange-highlighted controls in the F-Type to show off all the go-fast parts. Unfortunately, that orange color isn't skin deep.

    Jaguars always look beautiful but they never have substantial quality to any aspect of their whole package. No wonder bmw benz and audi generally rule the choice for a premium vehicle.

    That's disappointing. Why does Jag consistently fall down on the details? It doesn't seem to matter who owns them.

    Disappointing for a car marketed as an alternative to MB, Audi and BMW.

    Unacceptable at this price point. I would have expected aluminum paddles anyway. If my $36K VW R can use real aluminum trim than there is no excuse in a Jag. The fact that paint is flaking off plastic parts is really annoying especially if I paid close to 6 digits for this car.

    This is definitely disappointing, especially considering the cost of this car, as well as the market and competitor cars that it's targeting. Even though Jaguar provided you with this car, I would be getting this looked at by a dealer, either ASAP or during your next service. Wear and tear is one thing, but considering that the paddles on this car are meant to be used regularly, having the finish rub off this soon is simply unacceptable.

    unbelievable! how many miles does this car have on it now?

    thanks to edmunds reviews, i will continue to admire this cat from afar, because these types of issues aggravate the $*** out of me!

    Maybe if Jaguar had painted aluminum paddles instead of plastic ones? Who uses plastic paddles at this price point?

    I'd be very surprised if Jaguar didn't switch to aluminum after this.
