    2018 MS 100D No Warranty: Mistake?

    Tesla ended up buying my MY back after nearly 30 days in the shop for issues big and small. My particular car was a terrible example. It’s probably unwise to play the Tesla lottery yet again, but I like the MS a lot. I spent more time in MS loaners than my Model Y.

    2018 MS 100D No Warranty: Mistake?

    Contemplating the purchase of a 2018 Model S 100D with about 30K miles. Basic warranty is set to expire in 1-2 months. I had a terrible experience with a 2020 MY I bought new. Car & service were horrible.

    2018 Model S 100D without AutoPilot

    Agree with this, although many, many other Carvana photos exhibit an obvious camera aperture on the B pillar. I think that you're right; it's simply the lighting & angles.

    2018 Model S 100D without AutoPilot

    Yes, this particular car's screen is exhibiting some yellowing, in addition to what look like a handful of stuck pixels.

    2018 Model S 100D without AutoPilot

    Would you mind taking a look? https://www.carvana.com/vehicle/2119373 The VIN indicates that is it a 2018 and was manufactured in the first week of March (give or take a week)

    2018 Model S 100D without AutoPilot

    Are you sure about this? The car I’m looking at does not have B pillar cameras.

    2018 Model S 100D without AutoPilot

    Looking to buy a a 2018 Tesla Model S 100D from Carvana. This particular vehicle was manufactured in early March 2018 and is not equipped with AutoPilot (no B pillar cameras). - Does Tesla offer a retrofit option to make these cars AP and/or FSD capable? If so, how much? - Does Tesla still...

    Decision decision decision

    My first MY was bought back because it had so many problems and I rejected my new 2021 MY for numerous fit and finish problems. It’s always great to hear when people get great cars but please don’t dismiss those who were less fortunate.

    What's Normal Front Motor Sound for Model Y?

    The seal is not the cost driver here, the labor is. They have to drop the battery to replace it. My seal appeared to be properly installed but they replaced it anyway. Made no difference, so I pursued the buyback.

    Buyback, Followed by a Rejection

    I didn't get the hybrid. It's a RX350L AWD. The the RX's tech was updated in 2020 and it's pretty good, although it's still not on par with Audi or Merc. I agree that it's not the least bit fun to drive, but after several months of frustration with Tesla I'm embracing the quiet, comfortable, and...

    Buyback, Followed by a Rejection

    I bought a 2021 Lexus. It was cheaper than the Model Y. It's slow, but it's also quiet and comfortable. It's driving assistance system is less sophisticated but I have yet to experience a single phantom braking event. It has ventilated seats. It has CarPlay. Most importantly, it was manufactured...

    Buyback, Followed by a Rejection

    Anyone in need of Model Y accessories (Tire kit, wheel cap kit, charging adaptor, floor mats) in the Atlanta area should feel free to hit me up. Everything must go!

    What's Normal Front Motor Sound for Model Y?

    @dreamer1213 I ordered a replacement Model Y (VIN 64,7xx) but refused it at delivery since it exhibited several workmanship issues (see my other post). I canceled my order and ended up with a 2021 Lexus RX350L, which I’m pleased with.
