2019 G63 battery issues?

anyone else experiencing battery draining issues? ever since i got the car two months ago i get a message via the app starting that starter battery is critical after car has been sitting for a few days. its always started fine but maybe i'm just lucky enough to have gotten to car before the battery totally dies. dealer has checked batteries and said they seem fine. also no error codes in the car. its been with the dealer for three days now and apparently they are working with engineering in germany (which seems to take a while). no resolution yet... am i the only one with these issues? (note this is the second trip to the dealer within two months and less than 200 miles, the first was for a faulty differential sensor which got car stuck in low range mode.) since i haven't had a chance to really drive the car, hard to tell what else will pop up... getting a bit worried!

Ughhhhh, so sorry! Long live the near flawless 2018 G-Class But seriously, I hope this gets resolved. BMW up until about 2012 or so.....if many models sat for more than a few days, The battery drain warning would come on. Have never had this issue with Mercedes or any other car besides BMW & Rolls-Royce!

Do you know what is the date of production for your g63? Did it sit on the port for a long time before delivery?

200 Miles in 2-3 months??? That may explain the battery warning! Maybe you should drive it a bit more!

Mine sends me the same message, but when you check the app, the battery is fully charged. It is an app error. Send in a complaint to your service manager and they will have MB Engineering look at it.

I had no idea this feature existed. All this modern tech on a G Class seems contradictory.

100% agree! There are so, so many suvs around that can have this advanced, albeit useless or gimicky tech....THE G CLASS should not be one of them #getarangeroverorgls

Uh........hot stone massage on my *** after finishing a particularly hard tabata spin class on my way through a Starbuck's drive-through after I remote started the vehicle from my phone app?

This is extremely important and vital technology that covers the most basic of human needs when dealing with rough life automobiling circumstances.......

Tech can certainly assist in heightening the luxury experience but not when it's unreliable. Unfortunately we have become accustomed to having 100K plus vehicles in the shop because due to tech failures. Best chance for reliability is to buy the last year or two of a production cycle. Price has nothing to do with it anymore.

when i get the error message and look at the app, it does indeed say the battery is "critical". in any case, my dealer replaced the battery... lets see how it goes!
