Yours slams on the brakes!! I can’t get my 2022 Stinger show any sign of stopping even when I scare my wife and myself. I can’t get it work at all.
It's adjustable maybe you have yours in the more aggressive mode. I'd like to shut mine off but there was a case a few years ago where two kids were killed in a crosswalk near my house. Keep thinking what if I shut it off and something happens. Couldn't live with that

The pedestrian part of this video gave me some assurance before buying my car

no doubt there is a number of annoying recurring actions ...the car does when shutoff.....still It's an awesome car at the pumps with the looks and comments....just don't boast about the thimble sized fuel cell....

Do you have the GT2 (or GT Limited as it is called in Canada)? I think only the highest trim level had this. I believe if your car has the front camera, you should have this "feature"

I have the GT2 AWD and its excellent in every area except when the brakes start shuddering and the steering wheel starts vibrating.
Every car has something that the owner doesn't love or wishes that the vehicle would have.
Every vehicle.

That doesn't sound normal or natural. I've had to do some sudden stops before and it doesn't happen on my car.

Just noticed you don't have the US model that's probably why its not happening on your vehicle.
Check the forum re brakes...Its a common recurring problem .
This is my 2nd GT2, i had a 2018 and now a 2020 and the brakes are starting to shudder with 12000 miles

Do you think the upper US gets a different model than the lower US? Probably not

Does anyone else have an issue with banging their right knee on the bottom of the steering column when entering the car?

I've never had this issue before in previous cars. Whenever I enter the car and slide into the driver's seat I need to be extremely careful that I don't bang my right knee against the bottom of the steering column (i.e. where the manually adjustable steering lever is). I have a 2022 GT1 model, so the tilt/telescopic steering wheel is manually adjustable. I don't have the motorized function.

It's a really annoying issue for me. I've lowered the driver seat as low as it can go, and raised the steering wheel as high as it can go. But I'll still hit my knee if I'm not careful. Ugh.

Set your seat to fully retract when you turn off the car. That's what I did.
