I recently posted a thread about FOB issues. We had to take the car into service today because of numerous 'nuisance' issues which I will mention first - and one serious problem that the service center couldn't resolve. First the minor.
FOB isn't seen by the car. Car is slow to unlock. often when sitting in the car with the FOB the car says 'no fob present', even though the doors eventually unlocked. The auto-present stopped working.
TuneIn has stopped working, despite multiple soft resets.
Still getting wet under the FWD's when opened in the rain but to a poorly designed seal.
The front right proximity sensor keeps detecting objects when no objects are nearby. We've cleaned it off and it still repeats. SC could not duplicate.
Tire pressures give inconsistent warnings. let's say it's a cold morning. 3 tires show 38psi, 1 shows 37psi. The 37 shows amber. Ok, maybe 38 is the cutoff. pump up the 37 to 40 psi (because it's cold outside and i don't want to go to 45) and that one stays amber. hmmmm. so i adjust all the tires using a digital pressure gauge to make sure they are all at 40. Then the car shows 2 at 40 in white, one at 38 in white and one at 38 in amber with the low pressure warning. I get that it might not be the most accurate pressure sensing system - but if that's the case, loosen the software to allow for the 'slush' in the readings and not constantly ding the panel and flash warning symbols and text at you. and if two tires show the same pressure, but one is white and one is amber - which one is broken? Service center had no good explanation. just pumped them all up to 45 psi inside where it was warm and said good to go. I have my doubts. I'd almost rather have them disable the warnings if possible and i'll just monitor the pressures using my own equipment.
but now for the big one.
I don't know how to post an image on this forum - but while driving today on the highway the entire center display went blank and the collision alarm sounded without any car immediately in front of the X. I wasn't with my wife but she quickly took a picture to document it. We've had experiences were the service center said they believed us - but you could tell they didn't. So we now document. The car didn't stop or shut down and continued to drive - and she was able to pull over, call me and reboot.
But to have the dashboard go dark while doing 50mph is NOT good.
the SC didn't know what to do about that -but because of the picture which was timestamped they sent it off to the engineers to troubleshoot. In the meantime, their fix was to reinstall the software and tell us we're good to go.
This is of course 4 days before we drive 1600 miles round trip for thanksgiving vacation!
