2022 Polestar 2 love at first sight

I was sold in about an hour of learning about this vehicle. There was a bit of influence with my well maintained 2017 330 getting serviced yet again..The simple and easy to use infotainment had me at “hello”. I already ask google questions using my google hub in the house, why not ask google questions in my car? Acceleration is more than sufficient. The one pedal drive takes a bit to find the most comfortable setting, but we are best friends now. I was concerned about the open glass roof for sun glare, I forgot that it was even a concern after the first ride home. I have yet to adjust the manual dampeners, it does ride a little stiff on the bumpy roads in my neighborhood. I was told I get one free adjustment from the service center. This car just makes sense, full electric, easy to drive, easy to enjoy the ride!

Love my Polestar 2

5000 trouble free miles 4 months into ownership. Love the Android OS. Great acceleration and handling. Don't need to pay attention to a center tablet with many sub-menus ala Tesla. Voice control and recognition is about flawless. Interior with Nappa leather is a great place to be. Performance pack allows you to manually adjust the Ohlins Dampers from comfort to track. Breaks on Performance pack are phenomenal, but rarely used as one peddle driving is what I use. Vivaldi browser and other apps keep coming, OTA performance upgrade will be available at a cost for those wanting a little more oomph on the dual motor. Price is good for what you get. Looks great.

Fun to drive but …

The app to unlock and set the environmental controls is glitchy, and works for me on average about half the time. More annoying however is the android system for radio/internet/phone/gps. The sirius xm stations display incorrectly. I might have the hits station tuned, but it displays 70s on 7 and names the song being played on “the blend”. It has been happening for the entire 3 weeks I’ve owned the car, with temporary fixes after a hard reset (requiring a completely new setup entering passwords again for google, polestar, spotify, etcetera). Shortly thereafter it goes back to it’s old broken ways. Today the gps couldn’t find the location. The polestar “space” (sort of like the storefront dealership similar to the tesla model) gave me the number to the local volvo dealer who put a polestar repair specialist on the line. My call apparently interrupted something way more important, as he seemed annoyed that he was asked to take my call. He said to just call the people on the “on call” service in the car. This connected me with several very nice representatives who were unable to help me. There were several because the calls kept cutting out. They were unable to help because the technique to reset the system didn’t work and they said the service rep at macdonald volvo, the one who had more important things to do, should have been the one to help me. This is a new car and it absolutely does not work as advertised. I would advise anyone to stay away until both the biugs and the customer service issues are fixed.

Fun to drive when it works

Acceleration and driving dynamics are great. It is a very engaging sport sedan. It feels more refined than a S60. Interior is fine. It looks good, but wish for nicer cloth seats option, like the Volvo wool fabric. The biggest issue is quirky software and lack of reliability. Do your research. The car has significant bugs and the car will leave you stranded. It is happening way too frequently with OTA and TCAM issues,

Handling is good, acceleration is great. Interior with Nappa Leather is nice. Google Android Automotive infotainment works well with Google Maps, Vivaldi Browser, Spotify, and voice commands. Good looking car. Range not bad, charging time not bad. Using around 35ish kWh/100 miles on average over 7000ish miles, including winter. Put Michelin X-Ice snow tires on for winter and it is the best snow car I have ever driven. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. A Tesla may look better on paper but I highly suggest test driving a 2 if you can...
