ACC is great but you have to accept that it isnt going to drive the same way a human would. Its just a sensor with a computer trying to keep a given distance based on your setting and speed. It cant recognize that traffic is about to stop and start coasting or braking early, and it cant recognize that the line in front is about to start going so it will always be a bit slower to react. I really like using it but I do use it kind of actively. I will turn it off if it starts accelerating but I can see that coasting or braking is more appropriate even though the car in front of me is still accelerating.

Thanks for the ACC feedback. It doesn't sound like the technology has advanced much since 2010, which is fine. If I do buy this car, I'm going into it knowing its a drivers car with minimal luxury. I do worry about long term ownership since we keep our cars for 10+ years...... However, I am mechanically inclined and currently perform all mechanical work on our current vehicles.... I just don't want to be working on the Giulia all the time!

Same here. We “think we are going to keep our cars for 10 years” but we typically end up trading sooner otherwise I would be about 150 years old based on cars X 10 = 150. We did buy the 8 year 125,000 miles. The car is worth the depreciation if it was salvage value after 8 years. No concerns we just wanted to be covered since I think the QV will be a keeper car.

I still can't figure out what the greeting lights do and it's been over a month. I read in a guide that they are tied to the courtesy lights which the manual said are the lights in the sun visor mirror, but my lights turn on with this setting too.

I also wish there was a way to display the volume level at all times, ideally to replace the presets that I don't use, but anywhere would be helpful

Speaking of volume, how do you turn down the ringer volume for phone alerts....it's obnoxiously loud to the point my kid covers his ears. I read here that you have to wait for a call to come in and you can turn it down with the volume control. But does that permanently set it from that point on?

Yes, different actions have different volumes and you have to wait for those actions to occur to change the volume during those actions

  1. A service CEl pops up upon a remote cold start. This only occurs during a remote start.
  2. The interior hood release has somehow become detacted and needs to be warrintied. This occured while the car was getting wrapped and detailed; not their fault.
  3. During the window tinting process the interior lights were left on due to the doors being left ajar. The battery was drained slightly and needed to be jump started. Afterwards the dashboard became a Christmas tree. There was a general CEL along with a plethora of other lights. After 30 or so minutes of driving these issues resolved themselves after 30 +/- minutes of driving.
All of these quirks haven't been been too big but I'm curious if anyone has had these happen yet. Feel free to leave your .2
Nothing like that happened to me.
I had a loose wiring harness that the dealer took 23 days to fix, and bad rotors and/or pads which had to be replaced. No issues outside that.

I am concerned if I do not go thru this procedure that the car is not complete turned off and may degrade the battery. I purposely did not go through this process on one occasion and found the radio running several hours after parking.

Anybody else have this concern?

If it's in SS state, doesn't it restart when you put it in park?

Yep. Explicitly putting the car in park seems to be the best solution.
