I'm here to try to broaden my view on the car. I have a BMW coming off lease in Feb., and I'm trying to decide what will replace it. The new 3 Series is getting bigger, and I like smaller, but the deciding factor will be "self steering". My wife just got a Tesla Model 3, and I have found letting the car do the freeway/motorway driving, (most of the time) is liberating.

The professional reviews have been complimentary, but in reality, it is owners/daily drivers who know the car. And in skimming reports, I'm seeing troubling problems. The local Volvo dealer is only a few miles from where we live, but I don't want to wear out a set of tires driving back and forth.

Welcome to the forum!

Surprised you didn't stick with BMW, most folks I know rarely get anything else, if they do its a Mercedes.
Try calling your dealer to schedule a test drive, some are more than happy to show up at your house/workplace

Welcome to the community. There haven't been any significant issues that aren't to be expected on a first generation model, but you will have different expectations coming from a BMW. If you're looking at something with future tech I'm surprised you aren't looking into the Polestar 1.

I traded in my beautiful Mercedes Benz GLC300 Coupe, and couldn't be happier.... more horsepower, more tech, (wireless charging, Android Auto , parking/lane assist ... 15 seconds of autopilot ) more leg/head/cargo room.

Test drive it... I did... and was hooked!
