    What ball mount did you all end up using for your Model Y?

    Phantom Breaking so bad I want to return my car.

    At the risk being labeled a troll, I just hit the Ignore option on a certain poster on this forum. It's clear to me that that person is not interested in discussion, and since I've been in internet communities since the 1990s, I've learned it's not worth engaging that kind of person.

    Phantom Breaking so bad I want to return my car.

    I won't say never, but it's very rare. Maybe a handful of times over the nearly five years and 100K miles I've driven the Outback. It's way less intrusive than my Model Y's, but the Tesla is superior in nearly every other way. I do wish I had the ability to switch to dumb cruise control on some...

    Phantom Breaking so bad I want to return my car.

    Any time. It's a bit convoluted but always available as described on page 75 in the Eyesight Supplement Manual.

    That's not true on my 2017 Outback with Eyesight -- you can switch to "conventional cruise control" if the Eyesight system isn't working.

    Model Y Towing - Experiences Post here

    The 13-ft Scamp has a recommended ball height of 18 inches while the 16-ft height is 21 if I recall correctly. So if @HyperionMark was successful I'm hoping I can be too.

    Model Y Towing - Experiences Post here

    Sorry to bump this old post but I have a 13-foot Scamp and a new Model Y! If you don't mind some questions: 1. What hitch and ball? 2. Which brake controller? 3. What adapter or extension cord did you plug the Tesla in at the campground? Did you use 50-amp service? Thanks!

    Phantom Braking - Has it gotten better?

    Wow, that's good info. I'll try that next time.

    Phantom Braking - Has it gotten better?

    I have a week old Model Y, no radar and no FSD. TACC works OK on four-lane roads but is almost unusable on two-lane highways. So many phantom braking events. Plus Autosteer is useless at night because it requires the auto high beam feature, which works poorly on winding, hilly two-lane...

    I have Verizon for normal use but switch to Google FI eSIM for international travel. Works pretty well.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    So just to update. Wire transfer from Ally Bank to Tesla's bank went through in less than a day without a hitch. Ally does charge $20 but it was worth not giving bank credentials to Plaid.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I'll post here once it goes through but it was easy from Ally Bank. The wire transfer info is on the last page of your MVPA. UPDATE: Ally just called to verify the transfer as a security precaution, which I think is a good idea.
