If its brand new and its having problems just take it to the dealer, any issue is covered when its new.

The radio (by default) stays on until you open a door after parking and turning the car off. If it stays on after parking, shutting off, opening a door and exiting, and locking the car, then its an issue the dealer needs to look at. You can set it to turn the radio off with ignition in the settings (at least, you can in my model with the 8.4" radio, can't give you specific instructions since we don't know which radio you have).

If it freezes, and stays on, the car goes to sleep on its own after some time, mine has done that couple of times

My U-connect 4/7 inch display radio has a programmable delay in settings. Either zero or 20 minutes. Try programming to zero and see what happens.

issues troubleshooting diagnostic costs not covered under warranty and that will add up.
parts might be, and labour will be digression.
best not to have issues to begin with.
that being said dealer can diagnose and you take it from there.

so even with engine off, and more importantly ignition off radio still on?
did your bettery not die yet?

I think you can hard reset the radio by holding volume and channel buttons at the same time for 30sec. Though I think this will erase all your presents etc.

I saw a video on this a while back but the details might be different.

Really? That is surprising. Here in US, at least the dealer I use never charges for diagnostics for warranty work.

That would be nice.
But no here they always charge the diagnosis and from what I've seen most things cost double what you pay in the USA.
Its just something we have to live it here in the north.
