Are there any updates for poor throttle response or breaking at slow speeds? My car seems like it is going to stall when idling. Gives me an error to get throttle adjusted. Also, slow speeds is very touchy on breaks. Any news on updates? Thanks for the information. I will be bringing mine in this week!

I've never had any issues with poor throttle response - apart from when driving in A - but that's to be expected.

Slow speed breaking is an issue I hope they will address with future software updates - it's not in these updates I got.

I suspect that is normal. I believe there might be two things causing that sensation: decoupling driveshaft to reduce strain/increase gas mileage while at a stop, and possible cylinder deactivation. It feels like a slight misfire, but don't think it is.

Anyone do any laps in a parking lot to pin down these symptoms? I'm pretty sure the brake by wire issues will follow what I've found with throttle by wire. You have to "crack" the sensors open or work them a bit like rheostats and HAL sensors to get the voltage or resistance change you need for the ecu to see the movement. The software is digital and not analog so the jerkiness is equivalent to "clipping" or "aliasing" in the digital world. Like you have to cross the digital threshold for the ecu to apply the brakes. You have to learn this with your foot. Does this make any sense? Ferrari/Maserati throttle by wire needs a little more generous movement to get the f1 clutch to engage more aggressively and make a better launch. I think the same issue is happening with the brakes.

Had my Giulia in for service yesterday. I've had an issue of it turning off after pumping gas
Said they did a couple of updates but didn't give me any paperwork

Anyone aware of any updates for the 2.0T Giulia? I'm taking delivery soon from a new dealership, just want to make sure they won't omit anything.

I don't know for sure but wouldn't they make sure it's up-to-date before you take delivery? Or does that only apply to safety recalls?

That's what you'd normally expect, just want to ask around first. I got way more info, way faster, from these boards than from dealers.
