Having expended over 6 months of time researching, testing driving, and discussing at length with family and friends, I finally decided upon an XTS Platinum. Ordered it at the beginning of May, it arrived for delivery to me on June 19th. Visually, the car is stunning. Black with light interior. But, after three weeks, I'm beginning to wonder if I haven't made a grave error.
Very soon after delivery, I noticed my left hip began to ache after less than an hour in the seat. If I had to express it in words, I would say the seat bulsters on the bottom cushion where the vibrators go for the warning system are obnoxiously large and pressing against my hip bone. I can't understand this, since I test drove the car on four (4) different occasions, for lengths of time exceeding an hour, and thought nothing but the highest regard for the seats.
Next, the glove compartment door refuses to open. That anomaly began after the car was less than one week old, and I have seen my Owners Manual, insurance card, owner's card, or my EZ Pass (for you non-northeast folks, an electronic toll badge for highways. This actually is a pain since I travel a toll-road often, and it won't recognize the toll while inside the glove compartment. UGH.
Finally, I was hand-washing the car last night and found the trim piece surrounding the passenger side front door window flapping loose in the wind.
A call to the dealer today brought about an appointment for Tuesday, but I am besides myself with disappointment for a car that I loved so much prior to delivery, yet has done little to impress me so far.
Am I missing something here? Is it just my car, or do others here recognize these problems I've encountered?
