My first tank of gas I got 353 miles the computer said I average 12.2 miles per gallon almost all City I cannot believe that's accurate. Put 18 gallons in it when I filled it up so that's closer to it 19 miles per gallon
I’m getting close to 19 per gallon, but I don’t do much in traffic driving.

My main issue is the blind spot alert is signaled (in the side view mirror and dash) when a car is a full car length behind me...that’s too far. And because the alert is triggered , the car will buzz and warn as though I’m going hit something even though I’m safely changing lanes, which is distracting and a false alarm. I’ve driven many cars with blind spot alert , and never had one trigger unless a car was really in your blind spot. As far as I can tell, this is not configurable.

If its not configurable, then I'm sure it can eventually. If Adaptive Cruise Control has that option (which it does on many new cars) then I can't imagine it being that hard to implement here.
Try reaching out to Genesis Corporate and see what they say if you haven't already. Keep us posted if you do.

Anyone have radio cutting out? While driving, I often experience 2 of the four speakers(always fronts) cutting out, while the back ones are still operating...it lasts for a good 10 seconds and then comes back on....If I sit in my driveway it doesn't happen, so it must have something to do with the GV moving...If it were the satelite, I'd think the car would go completely quiet.
2nd day dring it!!
Did you ever find the problem? Mine does too. Even playing a podcast through my phone to the radio.

11.5mpg (100 miles and mostly city so far, the efficiency will improve slightly after more mileage but won't much) vs 20mpg per EPA
My previous car (Audi Q5) was 23.8mpg.
After about 1500 miles or so, I am getting 21-22 mpg on the road. Varies slightly depending on the terrain

No not yet. It seems like it might be a slightly loose connection. If it was a slow blow fuse ( which is the closest example I have experienced) it would have blown by now. And a loose wire would have also gotten looser. Ive considered that its a sirius problem but. I don't think its is. I haven't contacted the dealer he's 3 hours away so I was hoping that someone had dealt with it. Its not all the time nut its happening still. Only 2 months old but it started the 2nd day I got it. Its annoying as **** but I can kinda live with it for now. But when I go in for 1st service it will be addressed if it stays intermittant

I just finished a 1400 mile road trip and saw a max of 24.5 MPG per the car’s computer on VERY steady highway driving. The whole trip averaged just over 21 with a fair amount of city bits mixed in. Considering the vehicles all around performance I’m happy.
