Delivered One week ago. Canyon Red really pops. Everything works so far. No major fit/finish squawks.

As a former Tesla owner, initial impressions are this is a much better vehicle BUT Tesla ecosystem is much more evolved. The app is pretty useless (where are open frunk, open tail gate, flash lights, honk, open tonneau, control climate?) and the phone key leaves me standing by the car waiting way too often. Scheduling charging is primitive and no scheduling departure and precondition
Navv by Alexa stinks. No text integration into phone app No auto lane change yet. Service center unresponsive. I expect all this will improve quickly as product matures just as Tesla did.

That said, I am totally delighted with the vehicle… it does so many things better than Tesla… better ride,vehicle control, capacity, performance…, it is a lot quieter and ride is smoother, my wife that. I’m looking forward to a beautiful relationship!
