    .99% APR Financing Promotion (May 10 - May 31 2024)

    So I placed my order to lock in the .99% rate on May 21st. My original estimated delivery date was Jun 8 to June 22. Then the date range was pushed out to Jul 2 to Aug 6. Just now it was updated again to Jun 27 to Jun 30. So like others have mentioned in this thread, it's no coincidence that...

    Smelly stinky socks / mold in Model 3 AC

    This. The only thing that fixed mine was when the evaporator coils were cleaned with the spray. I'm pretty certain that mildew builds up on the coils and the smell returns pretty quickly. That's why it's so mind-blowing to me that Tesla now refuses to clean the coils when replacing the filters.

    Smelly stinky socks / mold in Model 3 AC

    This thread is very informative but at the end of the day, we are all dealing will a ridiculously unacceptable issue that in my experience only occurs in a Tesla and these brilliant engineers do nothing to solve for the problem. FYI, they now REFUSE to use that spray on the evaporator coil and...

    .99% APR Financing Promotion (May 10 - May 31 2024)

    100% agree. Brand loyalty has become the very last priority. And word of mouth free marketing along with it.

    .99% APR Financing Promotion (May 10 - May 31 2024)

    Way to completely miss the point. I have a fully paid-off 2020 MYLR that suits me just fine. The fact that Tesla service acknowledges the source of the stench and now refuses to address it even when I PAY FOR THE SERVICE is the issue.

    .99% APR Financing Promotion (May 10 - May 31 2024)

    T Perhaps, but the point is the game being played is, thousands taken off my already agreed upon trade-in value since it will have expired and a new hard credit hit (not a big deal, just highly annoying). And the BIGGEST BURN?? I can go on tesla.com right now and order the exact same...

    .99% APR Financing Promotion (May 10 - May 31 2024)

    What a complete sh*tshow this is. I ordered on May 25th with a delivery date of June 8 to June 22. Just barely squeaking by without having to deal with another totally unnecessary hard credit inquiry assuming a June 22 delivery date and now the app JUST updated to July 2 to AUGUST 6! They are...

    .99% APR Financing Promotion (May 10 - May 31 2024)

    I am also worried that when delivery day comes, Tesla is going to "revise" my trade-in downward because of the miles I am forced to put on it while I sit and wait. The answer is simple: If they try and pull this then get an immediate cash offer from Carvana and/or cars.com and more likely than...

    Wheel "upgrade" ??

    I was personally thrilled to get this update last night. They are identical (no lost range) as the lighter wheels and IMO look way better but I didn't find the need to spend $500 on the upgrade when I good easily slap TESPLUS black wheel covers on for a fraction of the cost and get the same...

    .99% APR Financing Promotion (May 10 - May 31 2024)

    I'm so on the fence with this. I have a 2020 Model Y LR AWD with just 35,000 miles on it but I really want the upgraded features like the improved suspension, much-improved cabin noise, etc... but I also want the redesign that is likely coming on January 1. But that will come at a 7%+ interest...

    FSD v12.x (end to end AI)

    What on earth is Tesla doing with the firmware rollout grinding to a complete halt? 2020 Model Y has been stuck at 74 installs for days. This is beyond annoying.
  12. R

    FSD v12.x (end to end AI)

    2020 Model here is STILL stuck on 2024.8.9. Per Teslafi, 2020 Model Y's have had zero software updates in days stuck at 74 installs in total. This is getting beyond frustrating.
  13. R

    This is MY idea, you can't have it!

    You'd think TeslaFi would have a notification feature that would push this to you when your car hits a certain amount of miles. They have all kinds of similar notifications that push to your phone. Probably pretty simple to add this.

    2024.8 shafted with FSD trial?

    Not sure if there is any truth to this but some folks are saying only newer cars with the AMD chip are receiving the updates. I have a 2020 MY and it just checked for an update and nada. Now I gotta wait another 24 hours to see if tomorrow is any different.
  15. R

    When will the FSD trial start rolling out?

    But for the only "post" that matters for people who don't spend hours a day researching this minutia buried in these forums, and that being the words out of Elon's mouth. It would be nice to simply clarify this less than 100 characters on the order page but that would require them to disclose...

    When will the FSD trial start rolling out?

    Sorry if this has been asked and answered ad nauseum (especially if it's within this very very long thread) but I read through the thread in bits and don't have a clear answer. Curiosity got the best of me so I signed up for the $99 FSD. I have a Model Y with 2024.8.9 and the FSD version is...

    What does Tesla "black box" record and how long is it retained?

    Interesting read! They clearly retain a lot of info in real-time! I still wish there was a way of knowing if they retain for the life of the car or just on a rolling basis of some kind. And also, if they have info like car access methods and times etc... Guess we will need to wait for an...

    What does Tesla "black box" record and how long is it retained?

    Does anyone have any insight as to what kind of data the Tesla black box actually records and how long it retains it for? For example, does it save all the trip details forever or does it go away after a certain amount of time? Similarly, does it even record things like when the doors were...

    Holiday update - no boombox for me :(

    I thought that was strictly for when you are backing up, not when you are going forward. Does it work in both directions if you are going below a certain speed? That would be pretty damn annoying to have that ghost sound everytime you are in traffic.

    New Home Charging Setup

    240V because my electric dryer is off the garage so I can plug right in using the mobile connector. But since it needs to be newly hard-wired in either case I am considering both solutions.

    New Home Charging Setup

    I'm buying a house in Phoenix and the garage does not currently have 240V access. Labor-wise, is it a similar cost to freshly wire a 240v in the garage to the nearest electrical panel compared to installing a Tesla Charging Station? I'm trying to understand if the difference in cost would just...

    Holiday update - no boombox for me :(

    Did your service center actually confirm they would order? I just tried to setup an appointment for this and they responded this morning and said that it is not available for my car at this time.

    Car will not open

    This has happened to me and your first move after toggling bluetooth off and then on is to call Roadside Assistance. They will pair the card key with the car remotely and that usually fixes it.

    Sunken interior trim FIXED

    You can get a sense of it in this picture that shows it is sunken and not flush with the glass. It was like this 3/4 the way around the cabin.

    Sunken interior trim FIXED

    I took delivery of MY LR at beginning of July and my car had the sunken trim curse around 3/4 of the interior where it meets the glass roof. My service center finally ordered a replacement (two big pieces that combine into one) and popped it in and it is now FLAWLESS. I figured I'd post for...

    Model Y has auto dimming mirrors

    While I completely agree with your frustrations regarding this as a fellow early 2020 Model Y adopter, I think I could get behind this more if Tesla was rolling out substantial non-OTA upgrades to cars in the SAME model year. They have clearly cut over to the 2021 model and just like any other...

    Any Possible Model Y Update Info?

    So have we determined with certainty that those of us with earlier models can NOT have the service center swap out the single pane windows with the new laminated ones? Assuming the answer is NO but wanted to confirm.

    Any Possible Model Y Update Info?

    So any opinions on whether Estla Service will laugh you out of the center if you inquired about having some or all of these updates retroactively swapped into the older MY's?

    Any Possible Model Y Update Info?

    The video says that all VIN's 63,000 and above will get the changes. I'm not sure if that means all of the changes mentioned in the video or just the double pane windows.
  30. R

    Any Possible Model Y Update Info?

    This video mentions that there are 4 upgrades that are rolled out from VIN # 65, 1. Additional insulation in and around the doors and windows to cut down greatly on the in-cabin noise the MY is plagued with. 2. Double pane windows all around to dramatically help in keeping the cabin noise to a...

    Why is FSD not transferable to your next Tesla?

    I'm guessing there will be a minimum term for any monthly plan that gets rolled out. 6-month minimum term or something like that. I don't see them allowing such flexibility of using it a month here or there and dumping for all other months. They want predictable monthly recurring revenue, not...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I totally agree. There is ZERO downside to adding FSD to every CT order now and lock in the $8K when you know it will go up 25% in 5 days. Just remove it later if you feel so inclined.
  33. R

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    You may well be right. But I've also learned to never bet against Elon of TSLA.
  34. R

    Why is FSD not transferable to your next Tesla?

    I don't think the monthly will be less than $300 and maybe more. *sigh*
  35. R

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    You are right about the spectulation around the monthly fee and it's been discussed widely across forums and platforms. No one believes it will be $100/mo and likely much closer to what you were saying of $250 to $400 per month in which case, I agree that you'd own it outright for that monthly...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I thought the Teslarati story on the monthly subscription plan for FSD having said that on the earnings call they alluded to the fact that yes monthly subscription service will be here "sometime next year". I didn't see where it was said that it would be in Q1 of next year. My biggest hang-up...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I didn’t see the value in it when I got the car and it was $6k. I then was frustrated when a week after I took delivery the car depreciated $3k overnight as a result of the price being lowered. Then FSD jumped to $8k and I was even more frustrated but told myself we are a long way away from that...
  38. R

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I’m not clear how that is relevant. If it adds to the resale value of the car and actually results in it appreciating greatly over the next couple years, why does it matter if you won’t have the car super long term? Pass on the greatness and the price for it some time in the future.

    Acceleration Boost Purchased

    But this is not a software upgrade right? It's hardware so any MY owners won't be able to ever take advantage of the 326 mile range short of getting a new MY in the future?

    Best Suspension replacement for the MY?

    Sorry if this has been asked and answered already, but for the MPP coilovers, do those lower the clearance in any way on an MY LR 19 inch tires? I want to confirm the lift will be equal to or slightly higher than where my car sits currently.

    Coil Overs and Warranty?

    Yes, that makes sense. But as far as the coil-overs needing to be repaired for some reason, will Tesla not do any work on it for free during the warranty period because they are aftermarket parts that need fixing? Lastly, I know in the past, every time I got a car appraised, I have always been...

    Coil Overs and Warranty?

    Mud flaps & Model Y

    I can definitely relate to the insane amount of dirty water and mud that splatters the car (backside mostly) in the slightest rain. Anxiously waiting for the Model Y mud flaps to become available.

    Post Delivery FSD and ultimate resale value

    I know that when you buy options before a VIN is issued and you take delivery, the VIN reflects all of those options, in particular FSD. Those that have purchased FSD AFTER taking delivery, where the VIN does not return the FSD upgrade if looked up, what does this do to the resale value, if...

    Things you might not know about your MY

    Coil Overs and Warranty?

    So who’s got Enhanced Autopilot?...let’s hear your feedback! Still deciding.

    September 30th came and went and Enhanced Autopilot is still offered. I can't say I am surprised at this tactic. It makes way more sense to keep this option available for the foreseeable future versus offering just as a late quarter push even though that was how it was being promoted.
  50. R

    So who’s got Enhanced Autopilot?...let’s hear your feedback! Still deciding.

    I'm also not convinced that this will be the one and only time they will offer EAP. Obviously, they released this to boost Q3 numbers and I don't see why they would permanently take this upgrade revenue path away. I can see them offering it again late Q4 or really any quarter in which they are...
