    Blog Tesla Discounts Basic Autopilot – $2,000 Until July 1

    I agree. Kind of feel like we've been cheated, however, I didn't like it when I tried, so part of me likes that I don't have it since you can't turn it off.

    Blog Tesla Discounts Basic Autopilot – $2,000 Until July 1

    Given the following: I tried Basic AP twice two years ago. Hated it both times, because: Too slow to accelerate when changing lanes to pass Didn't like being pinned to the middle of the lane (I prefer to bias away from surrounding cars) It's a commuter / around town car for me. 10 miles on...

    Funniest Tesla Question Thread

    I doubt it was malice. People clearly want a way to compare the "fuel" consumption to other cars, so I just answer with 130mpge.

    Tire Size Comparison

    Fantastic! Here are the details for the TMY 20": Diameter 28" Width 10" Sidewall 4" Circum. 88" Revs/Mile 720 In terms of sidewall, the Y 20" is in between the 3 18" and 19". Fantastic! Will convince the wife to get the 20" when the time comes, as I like those much better.

    Bug in "dumb" cruise control

    Doh. I can now confirm, as others noted, this is still present on version 2019.40.50.7. :(

    Bug in "dumb" cruise control

    Someone else!! I posted this thread a couple weeks ago, but didn't get any response. I think this has finally been fixed on version 2019.40.50.7, but I'm not 100% sure, as I haven't been doing anything but going back and forth to work. What version are you on?

    Newbie questions

    No one really knows, but I would speculate late 2020 at best if you order now. As has been said, we don't know how many orders they currently have, when it's going into production (for real), what the distribution will look like, etc. A few things we do know: There are already some orders...

    More Model Y pics posted on Reddit

    Yeah, those gap tolerances look much tighter than my 3. And I don't even have an early build.

    Do you use your frunk?

    That's actually a good point. I feel like there's a carpet in mine, so I didn't even think about that.

    Do you use your frunk?

    Keep infrequently used stuff up there. It does serve as the pizza compartment every couple of weeks though.

    Short term storage in Colorado Springs?

    Also, here's a side question: Going from Springs to Durango in April- I am assuming there's a decent chance of snowy conditions? This is the primary reason I'd be looking at renting a vehicle. My 3 is RWD with fairly worn stock tires.

    Short term storage in Colorado Springs?

    This is likely a bit of a long-shot, but does anyone know of a good place to stash a car for a couple of days? We will be visiting the area in the spring, and are looking to spend a couple days in the mountains. To do so, we'll likely need to rent a different car and leave the Tesla for a...

    Cruise engagement failure on hills

    Neither. Dumb cruise is all I have. Probably one of the five people that didn't pony up for TACC/AP back when it was a paid option :-) Also, just to be clear, I'm not doing anything funny. Just normal cruising on the highway. Everything worked as expected until a v10.

    Cruise engagement failure on hills

    I do not have AP, so no steering wheel. But the circle around the speed darkens like it should.

    Cruise engagement failure on hills

    I have a bug related to cruise engagement recently, and it's the only bug that I've found really annoying in a year of ownership. I believe this started with v10, and I'm currently on 2019.40.50.1: When going up a steep hill and attempting to engage cruise, the display indicates that it's been...
