Question: What is the problem and what is the solution ?

When I put my foot on the brake and slow down to 5 mph, on occasion, the engine revs and does not stop. The brake does not go down - like before power brakes. I have it two cars - caused very very minor damage. This also occurs when I drive into a parking spot but then the curbg stops the car. This is a very infrequent issue and does not occur repeatedly. it is vey dangerous. If a car was not in front of me, I could have gone into the intersection and could have been broadsided by cross traffic. I have had Penske Jaguar in Scottsdale, AZ and Gaudin Jaguar in Las Vegas, NV diagnose the problem but they cannot replicate the problem since it only occurs intermittently. I have opened a case file with jaguar of north america but they have directed me to work with a Jaguar retailer. I anm at wits end. The car is too dangerous to drive until this issue is resolved. Please help me with your advice. Please call me on my cell phone at 949-244-8585 or e-mail me at gdavidcpa@aol.com. Thank you in advancde for your expertise. George David

I would take it to the dealer and tell them keep the car till you fix it. Let them drive it around for days. Till it does the problem.

Can you suggest where the problem lies - the Transmission software, the braking system, etc. ?

I would have them look at the throttle system.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
