To be fair, you chose to read it in the most black and white interpretation possible.you chose instead for the most black and white statement
(like me) modified every so the sentence, in native English anyway, did not claim every ID.4 owner shared the same frustrations...only those that were like VW Dave; ie, those who are frustrated about specific features missing and/or broken that have been promised to be addressed for well over a year now.
That said, if you aren't using features like scheduled charging, which are at least some of the bulk of the source of frustration for such owners, then how can you realistically respond in a fair way to that criticism? If my gas flap was stuck closed and I couldn't drive my car, it wouldn't be a legitimate rebuttal of yours to state that you haven't needed to fuel up in six months because you work from home so there's no problem from your perspective. Regardless of whether you want that feature to work, it's a critical function for battery management. I've explained elsewhere why external EVSEs that have scheduling features don't suffice because the charge curve relies on scheduled charging.
Every customer who does not have a working scheduled charging feature is experiencing permanent battery degradation at every charge. Now, you may not notice the degradation depending on your driving habits but that's not relevant to whether it's happening--only to whether you care that it's happening.
At this point, US ID4 owners can compare it to non-US ID4 owners. From my perspective, customers have been very clear on what they expect given their base expectation is clear and accurate communication from VW, which has been their failing point in regards to US customers for decades so that's unlikely to get better despite earlier proclamations to the contrary.I’m not sure what people are comparing the ID.4 software to, so it’s hard to know what others expect.
