Thanksgiving 2022 (eastern US) - very little trouble

Since the impression of prospective Tesla owners of Supercharger congestion is that there is always a wait, I thought I would share my experience with my Thanksgiving 2022 road trip. My trip was 2123 miles in total, generally in the eastern/northeastern part of the US. The trip began the Saturday ...

Easing into the new mental state of the Tesla

Close to 9 months now with the Tesla, here are some funny conversations and musings from my wife (It's her car) that made me smile and laugh and wonder if these are things that other couples have experienced going abruptly from ICE to EV.

To "Sentry" or not to "Sentry"....that is the question

I used to keep Sentry activated whenever I was parked but for quite some time now, I have switched it off due to battery drain (particularly on longer trips away where I'm trying to avoid recharging away from home as the drain can reallly affect the range). As an aside, I also feel the flashing of t...

Solved*: AP, TACC, Auto Wipers & Lights

2022.36.5. 9/21 build Model Y LR, no FSD.

tl;dr In the most extreme dark heavy rain, without human visibility of lane lines or even the road surface, AP never gave up. Auto wipers are near perfect, auto hi/lo beams also really really good.
