    Stopped/parked cars not being shown on screen

    It should definitely be showing cars around you. It will only show 1 lane over and will not show stopped vehicles (most of the time).

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, How to Maintain Battery Health

    The performance Model 3 is rated at 315 miles at a full charge. 315*0.9=283.5 so it seems pretty good to me.

    Car ahead making right turn

    It's pretty variable. Sometimes it handles this better than the public build, but sometimes it's the exact same.

    Beta is "Dangerous"?

    If used recklessly, the beta can be dangerous. But that can be said of any vehicle on the road. If used responsibly, the beta cannot do anything you don't let it do.

    Miles Lost Not Equal to Miles Driven?

    Yup. The same happens in a gas car we just don't normally pay as much attention. If you drive faster/more aggressively you'll use more energy. Temperature, wind, elevation, and other factors also contribute. It is a bit more dramatic in an electric car though. Conversely, if you were to drive...

    Slow charging towards 100%

    Chickening out ...

    You would have a much more enjoyable experience with the Model Y. Here is our road trip from Michigan to North Carolina: It was great.

    Scheduled Departure - Warm the car up?

    In that section, I forget exactly what it says, but you need to also tell it you want it to preheat before departure.

    Windows not closing all the way when car is locked

    No, but you shouldn't have a precipitation problem. I never have.

    Windows not closing all the way when car is locked

    In winter climates it will sometimes do this to avoid the windows getting frozen stuck

    LR Model 3 vs. SR Model Y

    Is it worth spending up to $5000 ($60/mo. on a lease) more for the Long Range? Yes, depending on your driving conditions. Do the Induction wheels decrease the range compared to the Gemini wheels on the Model Y? Yes Does the SR battery charge quicker than the LR batteries? It charges slower...

    Model Y

    You cannot. They use a neural net so they are constantly learning (according to Tesla). The best thing to do is hit the button to trigger a single wipe when it's needed. Supposedly this is helping train the neural net.
