  • I’m not shocked (no pun intended), but software issues are a bugbear of all modern cars. I drive a 6 year old diesel and I’ve had my fair share of software problems. I’m sure they’ll get it all sorted, but really nowadays we should be looking at “over the air” diagnostics and debugging, so Sven can just plug his phone into his car outside his hillside cabin and call for an update. I’m sure it will come soon enough.
