There are threads on here that show how to add the factory hitch with all the part numbers. And a few aftermarket installs also.Just lost my "free" xm Guardian. I hate the subscription model but love the car. Nothing else can touch it on size and comfort. I wish it had a small receiver to attach a bike carrier.
Got mine custom ordered middle of May. Over 9k miles now. Love it. Only bug is CarPlay randomly disconnects. Unplug and plug cable solves it. Tried different cables, same thing. Lifetime MPG hovers around 50, which is amazing considering I do a lot of long distance highway in New England.Is there someone that Uconnect5 work without bug? Or is it an experience full of bug for everyone?
Unless you add the wiring harness for a trailer, the likelihood is slim. You'd have to get a service writer who was a real dick to argue that a hitch receiver caused a major issue and voided the warranty. In fact, the onus is on the company to prove that the owner had made a modification that voided the warranty. I wouldn't think it'd be much of a problem for an attorney, even a lousy one, to win that argument.Not without possibly affecting warranty.
I agree that most posts are complaints. I guess most think a car working great isn't noteworthy but a problem is. I'm also very happy 34 months and 40,000 miles in, as have had no issues despite having a 2018 Pachy limited with all the bells and whistles. I bought an extended warranty and looks like it might be a waste of money! Plus, due to the shortages I think the car value is appreciating!I thought I’d make a “happy camper” post.
Most posts to forums like this are people with problems, questions or unhappy with the product.
One month in and I’m very pleased with everything about the Pachy. Even the estimated battery range is sweet, first time I’ve seen 39 miles. T’would be great if actually got that much but I’m more than happy with what my limited delivers.
Here a screen shot of the🤩😍🤩
I’m praying I can make this same post one year in, and even 10 years in.

That's a good way to look at it. OTOH, it's worth noting that the hybrid system, itself (i.e., the traction battery and related components) is covered by its own, separate warranty (which I believe is the case with all plug-ins with large batteries); it's excluded from the OEM extended warranty.I bought the 8 year extended warranty and I’d be thrilled if I didn’t need to use it at all. I don’t want to worry about expensive electronics failing after 3 years, and this thing is just a computer with wheels so that’s my story.
Spot on.That's a good way to look at it.
