^ Yes - this!Agreed. A lot of people come here, and to other sites, looking for solutions to their problems with the DS. Other than some minor annoyances with the software, I've had no issues. Awesome car that I plan on keeping for as long as it makes sense!
Internet forums can be deceiving as you only hear from people who gripe about issues.
Cars are like toasters - some are are fine and others are lemons.
Don't let the issues we post here as an issue with every car. That's not the truth - the truth is we are fans and sometimes picky about our cars.
What you don't hear are the majority of people who are very happy with their DS.
I am new to the brand but am living with some of the minor idiosyncrasies of the car.
Reminds me of the 1980's BMWs where they were notorious for awful wiring (copper) and electrical gremlins which were in most part resolved when they switched to serial data and fiber optic-bus for their electrical.... My current BMW is now almost perfect with no more trips to the dealers - they have come a long ways...
I love to drive the DS - it's more fun than my $70K BMW SUV - the newer BMWs are now boring, soft and disconnected. These DS are amazing - nimble, torquey, connected, grippy, and just loads of fun to toss around off roads!!!:nerd:
