    Phone Key Not Working Well Anymore

    Tesla sales continue downwards trend in Europe

    It seems to mostly be related to lingering anger about his Twitter buyout which seems to have inflamed certain people so high it is completely skewing their Tesla viewpoint. I was just having an FSD conversation with someone yesterday and the "skewing" makes it impossible to have a logical...

    Model 3 without daily charging

    Make sure Cabin Overheat Protection is set to "OFF as it may default to "ON" BTW this has nothing to do with protecting your car engine/electronics..just a comfort perk so when you get in the car it isn't hot.

    Model 3 without daily charging

    My car is outside 24/7 plugged into a 120 VAC and I'm more North than you and I had no issues charging it during this past winter...however it is plugged in whenever I am home...which may not be the case for him. I just passed 1 year in ownership a few days ago. Boston temps very similar to...

    Model 3 without daily charging

    As people have mentioned Sentry Mode is going to kill you...and if you disable it you are going to be perpetually paranoid. You probably wont be able to bring yourself to disabling it. It's at least 5% a day. 5days*5% = 25% drain for a car basically doing nothing.

    Installer recommends an electric garage heater. Is it necessary? I’m in the Chicago land area

    I once heard heated garages during wintertime rusts out cars (and other metal objects) faster by raising humidity levels and causing condensation. Edit

    Can the Tesla charging cable be used in the rain?

    So I'm thinking of upgrading my receptacle to an industrial grade one so it can more handle the abuse of things being plugged/unplugged. I have two receptacles on the circuit with the GFCI button one not being the receptacle i plug the car into...

    Can the Tesla charging cable be used in the rain?

    I think 14 is a bad idea. I have a 25 foot 10 gauge and even that makes me nervous. You have both a length and width issue. My Mobile connector has to stretch to the max (as in clotheslining with wire strain) to reach my car at the nearest point i can park it...that's why i'm forced to use an...

    Can the Tesla charging cable be used in the rain?

    I'm sure the main reason they warn you is because there is no way to stop morons from using $2 16 gauge extension cords which will cause a fire. I actually have a 10 gauge not 12. I'll rewrite the post. 10 gauge is way thicker than the wiring that goes from your electrical box to the 120v outlet.

    Can the Tesla charging cable be used in the rain?

    So you have the same concerns I did when seeing those holes and then thinking about all that could go wrong having an expensive unit exposed to the elements. If you are using the standard 3 prong adapter: 1) Buy a super short 10 foot 10 gauge cord like this one on...

    Driving around with FSD v12 in Moldova from a salvaged US Tesla Model Y

    I think this proves Elon Musk's assertion that FSD is generic enough to even drive on roads outside of North America pretty well.

    Are we underestimating what features Tesla could leverage with the cameras + AI

    Can't guarantee all countries have that. Yes, this is about gathering data nobody else has. Depends upon the local speed. It may not necessarily be as small as you think. Obviously for FSD training the cameras are uploading clips from cars and I can also watch youtube easily all day on my...

    Are we underestimating what features Tesla could leverage with the cameras + AI

    Not sure if this has been discussed before (I'm sure it has) But let's just watch the first few seconds of this Figure AI robot demo for a sec and then think about what Tesla may add to the car by leveraging a "a realtime Tesla camera swarm" in a similar way. But instead of you asking the...

    Full FSD Free Trial: Why I'd never buy it . . . ever.

    I'm sure the non-North American Tesla owners on here would love to strangle us on some of the gripes they constantly read considering they get to experience nothing. I can imagine their murmurings..."the car drives too close to the curb in turns..is that it..those #$%# Americans"

    Elon Musk Discussion - Tesla Brand Damage

    Tell that to the sell-out management who took the buyout money and ran. So whose happiness interests do you think were they looking out for...somehow for some reason you think they put the average worker's happiness first....

    Elon Musk Discussion - Tesla Brand Damage

    If personality was a requirement nobody would be buying iPhones back in the Steve Jobs days. My ex-boss used to report directly to him and said he was an insanely temperamental guy. Also I once learned when working for a financial firm with a hot-headed Portfolio Manager. To his boss Me: Why do...

    Model Y RWD is now long range (May 3) in the US

    I would assume it would as it is paranoid about every other thing that involves recharging. Slightly cold outside...you get that "Regen disabled" icon until the batteries warm up even if they say 50%.

    Model Y RWD is now long range (May 3) in the US

    I don't think think there is a hidden part. They just use a battery slightly larger than the reported specs. So when you charge it to 100% it is actually charged in the 90s somewhere. Think of it as a 6GHz CPU intentionally underclocked to 5.5GHz for a laptop to make sure it doesn't overheat...

    Model Y RWD is now long range (May 3) in the US

    Personally I'd still try and stick with an AWD version but I'm in the snowbelt so I'm biased. It may even help with tire wear by redistributing the force.

    Help me decide Model 3P or Model YP

    This pic says it all I'm not saying the Model 3 is a Mazda Miata but the Y is certainly not small. This is more than just a different rear cargo area. As i said before I whacked my head on the 3's door frame when I tried to get in the back seat. I'll take the extra room over the performance...

    Read, understand, and fill in the paperwork for that mor-ev discount carefully before buying the Tesla.

    Footage of FSD v12 being tested in Germany

    I wouldn't be so quick to write it off. It's doing a really good job in my area. It seems to like densely settled areas more than wide open areas. Some youtube videos show mistakes in non-complicated scenarios in places with wide 3 lane streets...meanwhile I'm driving in one lane narrow city...

    Locked out of my M3P

    Well they discontinued giving out fobs as part of the standard equipment and tell people to download the Tesla app when you pickup your car. The doors open automatically when you are nearby using bluetooth when it auto-detects your phone in your pocket.

    Help me decide Model 3P or Model YP

    If you are looking for speed then buy a 3. If you are looking for space buy a Y. I found the 3 simply too small. I actually hit my head on the door frame while casually trying to get into the back seat. Look at the cars when parked next to each other and you'll see the difference.
