Default Distance reading not correct

Just took my K9 in to be service for the following:
1. Traction control not working, tried turning off and back on, no change. Car spins out in rain.
2. Issue with vibration & shifting via transmission
3. Distance display is not correct reads 236 mile on a full tank of gas.
Has anyone had any of these issues, please share. Thanks!

If you do all your driving in the city, and have a heavy foot, That might be right. 12 mpg
The K900 uses your average mpg at the moment to figure the distance.
Try the car on the highway or a trip to get a good reading.
Something could be off with the traction control, have you checked the fuse?
Mine will shut the car right down for a second if it looses traction.
Have they reset the transmission to factory specs, solves most problems with transmission

What year and how many miles on your K9?

My 2015 with 28k miles also shows 230mile range on a full tank of fuel but I get about 400 miles out of a full tank. So weird.
