It was love at first sight. I saw a black on black Stelvio and was at the dealership the next day buying a silver sport model. I purchased it without test driving it! Who does that? Well, I was not disappointed. I drove it in normal mode for a week until I got used to the bells and whistles now I drive in dynamic mode and it feels like it was made for that mode. I was looking for an SUV that can get out of its own way and I found it. I purchased a low mile lease because I was only going to drive to work and home but now I wish I purchased a higher mile lease because I want to drive it all the time. It handles well at high speeds and that?s what I was looking for. It has a small foot print, compact size, but still has room for my Home Depot runs. The only thing I?ve done to it was placed WeatherTech mat?s on the black carpet - because I keep my vehicles clean. The dashboard is simple there is a very short learning curve - probably two days which is perfect for me. I love it.
This car keeps surprising me with performance and looks but
This car keeps surprising me with performance and looks but unfortunately some warranty issues already in the first two weeks. The car is amazing to drive. Handling is fantastic. The acceleration is best in class and most fun part is telling people I have an Alfa and the look of "what's an Alfa" in their face. I went with the Q4 and the winter package. Quality issues, the steering wheel had a cosmetic flaw but I knew that when I purchased it and they are replacing the steering wheel. The auto start/stop had an error code which I brought in for warranty and was fixed. And the infotainment crashed on me. Key cycle didn't fix it. I had to wait overnight for the car to fully shutdown and then it came back. Unfortunately the codes for this error weren't there and I had the latest software so there was nothing the dealership could do. It's only happened once so hopefully that's the end of it. Even with the issues, I still love this car.
I really love the looks and feel of the Stelvio, and how fun it is to drive. Really drives more like a car than a suv. Only has 350 miles on it currently, so can't yet comment on reliability, but I am quite happy with the purchase. It's a drivers car, so if you are looking for a 'luxury' feel it may not be the right care for you, but if you want a car that will put a smile on your face, because of the handling and road feel, this is it.Show More
