I've had my 2019 Stelvio Q4 for nearly 2 years, and I can't wait for the 3 year lease to be over. Never in my life have I been so aggravated by a new vehicle, particularly something that presents itself as a sports car. Regardless of which driving mode the car is in, there's a split second lag period from when I step on the accelerator until the transmission engages. I can literally push the accelerator to the floor and let it pop up, with no engagement, or movement from the car. I've tried driving the car in all 3 modes, and the result is the same. Once the accelerator finally engages, then the car will move quickly. My vehicle is apparently set to move up to 3 mph the minute I take my foot off the break, which is incredibly dangerous. I've tested it several times for consistency, so it's not my imagination. This is dangerous in parking garages, as well as stoplights. Therefore, when I take my foot off the break and the car starts to move, I then hit the accelerator and the car pauses, and then finally engages. The overall effect creates a very jerky driving experience. This also happens on the freeway. I'll have my foot on the accelerator cruising along at 70, I'll then press down on the accelerator to pass someone, and it takes a moment to engage. I can see the tachometer rev, so it appears that the engine needs to catch up to the speed of the car? On another occasion I came down a canyon road, turned right onto a major thoroughfare, hit the accelerator, and the car slowed to almost a complete stop, and then engaged. Thank god I hand't pulled out in front of a car or I would have been rear ended. I've taken it to the dealer multiple times, and they tell me they can't find anything wrong with the car, but out of the side of their mouth they'll say that some of these cars do that. I've owned 2 LandRovers, 4 Jeep Grand Cherokees and even a Nissan 240SX... none of these cars have ever behaved this way. My husband drives a 2013 Mercedes E350 Convertible which is the finest car I've ever driven. I'll sit at the light, take my foot off the break, and the car will not move until I hit the accelerator. And when I step on the accelerator, the car MOVES, even in economy mode. I have never hated a car so much in my life. I've written to corporate and begged them to let me out of the lease because I'm afraid that I'll be killed in this car thanks to it's inconsistencies, but to no avail. We do have a lemon lawsuit filed, therefore I cannot post my legal name here. Sadly, I've had to alter the way that I drive in this so called 'sports car'. I never make a left turn without allowing for a long response time from the car. On another point, the start/stop technology is incredibly inconsistent, which adds to my left turn anxiety. I'll drive the car for several miles, stopping frequently at stoplights, and it never shuts off. (yes I know I can hit the button on the left, but I forget to do it when the car appears to be functioning normally). I'll turn the signal on, get into a turn lane, and the car shuts off. Shouldn't someone be programming the computer so the car never shuts off when the turning indicator is on?? The Charcoal grey car with it's allow wheels, red calipers, and matching red interior, turns a lot of heads. But when asked how I like it, I respond with I hate it. Don't buy one. There's a host of other issues as well. The car hadn't been programmed when I saw it on the dealers lot, so I wasn't able to drive it prior to leasing it. We discovered several days later that the car did not have satellite radio or heated seats, even though we'd been told it did. Seriously? A $50,000 car doesn't have these basic features? I nearly bought a Alfa Romeo Spider in the 80's, but thought it was to much sports car for me at the time. 30+ years later, and the dream of being an Alfa Romeo owner has turned into a freakin nightmare. The radio died and had to be replace during our last service visit. The power windows are horribly inconsistent and have to frequently be reprogrammed. So many times when I hit the button to put them up, they roll down, again and again. It might take 5 tries to get the window up. And when you're being approached by an aggressive homeless person at a stop light, this can be very disconcerting. And when it comes to the electronic gear shift and their buttons, it still hasn't become second nature to me. So often I hit the park button, and it doesn't engage. I'll think I'm in park, take my foot off the brake, and the car begins to roll. And on two occasions, I've reached for my cell phone sitting in the console, and hit the park button with my wrist... the car jerks to a stop. Do yourself a favor, buy or lease a C Class Mercedes instead of an Alfa.. our loaner cars from the Mercedes dealership have all been a dream to drive compared to the Stelvio.
