    I have been visiting this forum since March of 2017. I bought my 2016 XTX Platinum in May of 2017 that was a new left over from its model year. So I joined this forum a couple of days ago and thought I would post some pictures but I can not down size them enough to post some pictures. When I get it figured out I will post them. I don't really feel like a new be because I come here so often, and yes I had to have my Cue screen replaced because of de-lamination.

    Welcome. Hope you get lot of enjoyment out the vehicle. Mechanically, my has done fairly well. It has been some conveniences that have been inconvenience. Currently, I have one tire that loses 3 pounds or so within a week. The dealer can't seem to find an issue. Tires are due for replacing soon (Summer). That should give a better ideal of what the issue is (rim or tire).

    Thanks!. I was told that the bead was good. I will ask for a reseal next time I am in. The dunk check for bubbles was probably the easier thing to do. This is probably my twentieth vehicle. But, it is the first one that has been so high maintenance.

    It is Adriatic Blue with the light titanium interior. I moved from up state NY to eastern Tennessee about and I like the fact that I can drive the car year round, the roads are better here also. I traveled 600 miles from up state NY to Cincinnati Ohio to buy the car and when I was in NY the car was not driven in the winter. Sold my corvette and bought this.

    I do not have a cell phone so I will have to figure out how to do it on my computer. I see I can not edit my posts so I can not correct my mistakes.

    Don't know where the car lived. But if it was in a snowy place where road salt was used, it's possible you have corrosion around the rim that messes with the tire bead. It's not really visible and resetting the bead won't help. After 3 years in Maine, my Jeep Grand Cherokee eventually had to have all four rims "polished" when each of the tires started losing air. Took the car to a good Mom & Pop tire shop (the dealer couldn't find the source) who spent time and discovered the leak.

    Thanks! I stay in the SE. It seems strange. But, I will keep working at it.
