I've got a V2 recently and found some problems.   First,  I don't think Cura understands the correct dimensions.  I had a small but wide print which cura apparently allowed it.  But when I added the brim since it was fairly wide but still within the plate dimensions, when it started printing,   it hit the edge causing the motor/belt to skip.   A bit scary but it eventually went on to print.

Also noticed that what cura shows on the plate with respect to location, does not match with the printer bed.   Meaning the part is smack center of the plate, but when it starts printing,  it is quite to the right.  Is there a way to calibrate the two?  Printer is fairly new, perhaps 2 months old.  I haven't even gone through one spool of filament yet.

Lastly, like many of you I have no problem with PLA.  Problem is i can't use it for my jobs.  I am using PETG and the darn thing just would not stick.  I does fine with Brim, but soon as it starts printing the infill, not a chance.  I've raised the temp to 255 and brought up the plate temp.  Still nothing, plate is clean,  and print is to the recommended specs.   Can anyone recommend a better plate as an upgrade?   The only way i was able to make this work temporary is to use PLA for my first layer, and switch filaments after.   Just a pain and don't like the multicolor.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
