No need to announce your departure, nobody cares and nobody will notice you are gone. Nothing personal.I locked my ProS AWD on 10/7, and joined the forum soon after. I have been excitedly learning about the vehicle here and on other sites since, and even purchased an EVSE in anticipation. Also got bids for running a dedicated line for the charger. Been checking the order wheel daily and posting on the forum.
But I’ve quickly lost my enthusiasm. Other than the idea of owning a BEV and enjoying the new tech, much of the rest has made me unsettled. Overall, BEV vehicles have poor reliability, and VW as a product line is among the worst on the CR list. In addition, the ordering process and the dealership thing is a lousy experience so far. I have never felt so disrespected by a company during the purchasing process, and I am buying a vehicle that is very expensive, at least for me, and that I have never seen in person. I’m doubting the quality control, the company commitment to the customer, and just about everything. Doesn’t mean I think there is some other BEV maker shining stars out there, because there is not.
So I’m going to sign off here as a participant, return the EVSE to Amazon, and see how the company does in the rest of this ordering process. So far I give them an F-, but I will keep my order active, and keep reading how owners are faring with reliability, software, and all of the other complaints. I have to say that so far buying from this company has not inspired confidence, at all. I’d call this VW probation period; let’s see how they do.
When and if the vehicle arrives, I can make my final decision whether to purchase it, or not. Meanwhile they can keep my $500 to maybe pay someone to send out decent progress reports or update the vehicle software. My gut is telling me that it will take several years to sort out the BEV situation, inspire more quality construction and reliability, and get some competition on price.
Thanks to the other forum members for your posts and suggestions.
