When I listed to FM the album art is displayed but when I listen to XM it does not. I don't know why it would need to pull from the Gracenotes DB. That info should be available as part of the data received directly from the XM signal.

Curious, have they illuminated the door panel controls yet?

I'm not surprise the head unit is still not right. LOL, they really do need to sub that out to someone that makes head units AND speakers. I wished they'd call Harman.

How about the flappy paddle shifts are they any crisper and or more defined?

And last but not least......have they add a stronger fan to the rear seat A/C controls?

Question regarding fuel capacity/mileage. I'm in my second week of ownership of a 2017 6 sport. I drove until the DTE was at 5 miles, filled up expecting to put near 16 gallons in, but it would only tank 13.6 gallons. My friend says I have a pessimistic fuel tank, what is your experience? Are you getting more than 13/14 gallons at fill up?

The DTE is your car's onboard computer "estimating" based on driving conditions and not counting the reserve capacity. It is no different to most other cars when the light comes on and the guage kisses 'E' but you still have a couple of gallons left in the tank.

On a side note, i wouldnt recommend running these cars on low/near empty tank. For one , all the settled impurities at the bottom of the tank may choke up the filter, and two, in case you do run of out gas, you risk frying your fuel pump ( don't ask me how i know !).

All said, the cars onboard computer that calculates the overall mileage is very accurate.On a couple of occasions it was outside 2 mpg compared to manual math , but on most tanks it is within 1 mpg.

Door panel controls do not appear to be illuminated on my 2017 GT. What bothers me even more is the lack of lighted Homelink buttons on the rearview mirror.

All door panel controls on my 2017 GT are illuminated with the exception of the side view mirrors.

Gas mileage will be reduced with Winter Gas (2-3 MPG), not sure when they start shipping that crap?!
