So many of our 2018 MY owners have been stacking up the mileage for 12 months or more. There becomes a time where the car begins to no longer feel new as the performance degraded or strange noises begin to arise.

Please reply with the mileage you have put on your 2018 MY car, provide current mileage, and what issues you are having which makes your 2018 MY car no longer feel new.

Over 11,000 miles and don’t know if I’ve just gotten used to it but it does feel a bit stiff. But still very well controlled. It does have some tire noise on the bad roads we have here. The smooth roads it’s quiet. No extra noises have crept up.

12k miles and drives just as well, if not better (probably b/c of some bolt ons). the only thing that has creeped up is the infamous sunroof creaking...

Approaching my first year with slightly over 8,000 miles. No major problems, still drives as good as new.

I have around 8,600 miles. The hatch is noisy, i asked the dealer if they heard anything about the fix, they said no. I can smell antifreeze coming from the drivers fender when i get out, but don't see any leaks.. I went for the wiring harness recall in January, they said the part is on back order until March. Took a 160 mile trip the other day with a full car and there was a lot of vibration the rear passengers were complaining about, that I've never noticed until they pointed it out. Almost like a wheel bearing or something. [wrenchin]
