    A few things I think Tesla could have done better

    Regarding the hitch cover, check out Every Amp (formerly Living Tesla) YouTube channel. They have a great solution which is essentially removing all but 4 of the tabs. Ever since making that mod it’s been 100x better. Truly it was a hassle before the mod. I had a loaner BMW this week as my...

    Need for screen protector?

    For me, it’s the kid factor. He’s cool and fun but occasionally a little clumsy. I put a protector on my phone screens and it’s saved me many times. Granted there is little chance of dropping this but it’s nice to not stress about it. I acknowledge that this is likely a useless accessory but...

    Need for screen protector?

    I will agree that a matte screen protector has been a worthwhile investment. Far fewer fingerprints and I find it easier to see the screen - even if it’s a little dimmer. Honestly I don’t even notice it’s there anymore.

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

    I really would appreciate auto lane change but for $4k, I cannot justify it given the limited highway use my vehicle sees presently. If I had a long commute in traffic I'd consider it because I think that the standard AP system is very frustrating to have to re-engage after every lane change...

    Paint a starting to pit on hood

    Yeah, that looks like iron contamination of your clearcoat. I'd pick up some iron remover to decontaminate and then see what it looks like after that. This is a "shootout" video on iron removers but it does a good job of explaining what the issue is, how the product works and a recommendation...

    Trunk closing but not locking..

    I had this happen after mobile service did some work on my charge port door. I assume they removed the tail light assembly and then reinstalled it. When it was replaced I suspect the stops integrated into the tail lights were off by a little bit. A simple fix - no need to wait for mobile...

    State Inspection in NH

    I wanted to give credit to Duncan's European Auto for having a very nice, clean shop and were very quick to process my inspection. I went there today and will be going back for the Tesla and perhaps for my 135i as well! A nice drive down on a sunny Friday. A little slower back to the Lakes...

    What will you name your Model Y?

    ATMOS Reference to the GPS/emissions system in Dr Who: The Sontaran Strategem. perhaps it’s not too far off if Elon is partnering with Aliens.

    Do you regret paying for Full Self Driving?

    Exactly. I'd submit that it's actually kind of dangerous to have AP disable on lane changes. I have caught myself thinking that AP was on after a lane change when actually I was driving.

    Do you regret paying for Full Self Driving?

    No, the basic autopilot in the model Y does not do ANY lane changing. If it does, it's never worked for me.

    Carrier Direct to NH Experience

    AH that is a bummer - having a new vehicle and not being able to drive it must be frustrating. I am still waiting on the correct screws to attach my NJ temp plate to the car as they were nowhere to be found. Not a show stopper as I stole the ones off a car in the garage but if I want to drive...

    Carrier Direct to NH Experience

    OK, well whatever. It ended up being a non-issue anyway. Call it luck, call it a lack of bad luck, call it whatever. I'm moving on. Note to anyone who is doing a carrier direct pickup - be sure to talk to your Delivery Specialist if you have concerns over having a car delivered. You may...

    Carrier Direct to NH Experience

    A follow up - I talked to my Delivery Specialist on a follow up call last week for one of the minor issues I had. I asked specifically what would have happened if there was a "red line" issue that would have prevented me from taking delivery. You do have the ability to reject the vehicle and...

    Carrier Direct to NH Experience

    I don't think that I was lucky more than I was just not unlucky. I wanted to share that there are instances where people have Carrier Direct work well for them. This forum has far more negative stories about issues than positive ones. The car is not 100% perfect, but I have yet to have...

    Software Update for "Home" Tailgate setting (please!)

    I will "third" this idea. Hopefully they can deliver on this one!

    Tesmanian Model Y Floor Mats

    On the flip side, the plastic does allow for simple cleaning. The rubbery mats in my Outback are annoying as it's impossible to clean them to a "like new" condition. A little dirt on the MY Tesmanian mats cleaned up with some interior QD no issues so far. We shall see how I feel about these...

    Carrier Direct to NH Experience

    Perhaps it was a return and I'm confused the communications from Tesla are, frankly, terrible and contradictory in many ways. However, if they delivered me a vehicle with major defects, I would not have accepted it and it would be their problem to deal with. What would they have done? I don't...

    Carrier Direct to NH Experience

    I am glad that you were able to choose what worked best for you. At least we have a choice here, right? I was not in a place where I could easily get to NJ to pick up a new vehicle so Carrier Direct was perfect for me. However, you absolutely have the right to inspect and reject the vehicle...

    Tesmanian Model Y Floor Mats

    I put these in my MY over the weekend: front, rear and trunk. They fit perfectly and fit the bill exactly. A good value for what they are. The trunk, especially, fits great and I'll second that the crease is functional to permit opening the rear cover to expose the under storage well. I...

    Carrier Direct to NH Experience

    I hope that it goes smoothly! In the end, nearly all of my "issues" were related to communications. The car itself, thus far is outstanding and was worth the trouble to get it.

    Carrier Direct to NH Experience

    Just wanting to share my experience for my delivery with Carrier Direct. This is my first Tesla. Ordered Jan-2020. LRAWD, Blue exterior, black interior, 19" Gemini, no FSD. Added in Tow Hitch on the day it was announced (April?) VIN in June 15xxx Was originally notified for a Carrier Direct...

    Appaled by Tesla Trade in value, Don't match with carmax

    I emailed one of my local dealers since I let the registration for my trade in expire. They gave me a fair price over email and came with a check. Three signatures and they drove off and I had my check. This was much preferable to taking the risk of trying to drive 90 mins to CarMax and...

    Unannounced (surprise!) Tesla Delivery - Part 2: How to Deal w/ Delivery Issues?

    Is this something that you can request to be fixed using the tesla app to schedule a service? From what I have read, your best bet is to open a service request and they'll schedule an appointment to fix it. Unfortunately, you probably have to go to Dedham, MA unless the mobile truck can fix...

    Door leaks, stuck "open"

    GREAT advice except that it doesn't work here in the parts of the country where we have extended periods of winter. Using some ONR (no-rinse) in the garage can work but the layer of road salt and crap needs to be wetted down pretty good if you're trying not to introduce excess swirls (or feel...

    Registration package!!

    Sorry to hear that you're still waiting. They really do need to get their act together in many areas. My car destined for a NJ delivery is somehow stuck in Chicago since 6/26. Are you calling and e-mailing your delivery specialist daily? I your patience has to be simply gone. I'd be...

    Tesla Needs to Learn How to Deliver Teslas to Maine (and NH and VT!)

    100% Agreed. I used to have a Mini and had to go to Mini of Peabody if I needed anything done - they finally opened up a NH dealer about 3 months before I sold my mini. It was a hassle going to Peabody for anything warranty-related and on that vehicle there were a large number of issues...

    Hatchback hits bikerack

    You just need to get a hitch extension like this: https://www.etrailer.com/Hitch-Adapters/Curt/C45791.html?feed=npn&gclid=CjwKCAjwrvv3BRAJEiwAhwOdMxBTK0zIYpbD5-c1zb91e3M-m26eDzdh3h29VU1rf-rGa3c3g1_6VRoCg6MQAvD_BwE Just get one which is anti-wobble and you should be good to go.

    Delivery to my door

    Well, yeah you're in NH and not Burlington area, VT like VTElectric is, whom my comment was aimed at. A drive up pleasant valley road in Underhill > 108 over into Stowe > rt100 to Morrisville and then 15 back to Underhill is a nice drive (other than Stowe on a busy weekend). While that is a...

    Delivery to my door

    How is the MY? I'd itching to take a ride over the Smuggler's Notch with it. It seems my vehicle is in Chicago - it was unloaded there and didn't make the hop to NJ. Tesla has been in contact with me a couple of times today and they seem keen on getting this resolved.

    Help! Unannounced (and early) Tesla Delivery - I don't know what to do

    Tesla really does need to address their poor communications channels. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any incentive to do so. A passenger door and charge port cover....eh those are things that can be fixed, right? Sure it's a hassle to have to visit the Service Center but I am pretty...

    Delivery to my door

    Well, once again Tesla is absolutely terrible with the communication with anything useful. I was told that the 30th was my delivery day and we prepared for that. Looks like my vehicle was held up due to "delays at the rail station" and will not be getting to Paramus until June 6th. Hope y'all...

    Delivery to my door

    Dang! I have not heard a peep from anyone! Assuming it's the same delivery person, it will be soon or I will be waiting until tomorrow!

    Delivery to my door

    No word here from anyone as well. I'll post back if anything changes - I'm about 25 mins north of Concord off I93. It's about 2.5 hours between here and Burlington.

    Wheel locks?

    I totally understand. My experience has been frustrating - one time a shop forgot to put the wheel lock back after a tire swap. Three months later what should have been a quick and free rotation turned into $150 and an hour of time wasted. I also don't live in the bay area....I'm more worried...

    Wheel locks?

    Wheel locks have been nothing but a pain in the butt my experience. At this point, they are a shady dealer-add on like VIN etching to me. With sentry mode, you'll get video of anyone who is going to take your wheels and honestly even if you have wheel locks even a mediocre thief will just...

    Delivery to my door

    I have a feeling that there will be one delivery truck for all of us on the 29th/30th. I am also under the assumption that we will have temporary plates available. If not, I think that the MVPA will allow me to get 20-day plates at the NH DMV. Hopefully.

    Black/Black 19inch no FSD - NO problem delivery

    Tesla arranged it for me - I don't know what their requirements are for this. Honestly, I had assume that I would have to go to MA to pick it up. Once I had a VIN and MVPA I was assigned to a delivery specialist who is coordinating the transport-based service for me. If I ever get the chance...

    Black/Black 19inch no FSD - NO problem delivery

    Wow that looks fantastic! I debated between Blue and Black when I ordered and have NO regrets on blue but dang that black looks great. It is also great to hear about a no-issue car in the northeast! Thanks for giving me hope! What center did you pick up at? I am having a transport delivery to...

    Delivery to my door

    Hi, I am in the same boat but my vehicle is arriving in Paramus this week. I will ask my rep as well. My rep has inferred that the SC prep will be looking for the issues that are being brought up on the forums here as of late to be resolved. I am also interested in how this works -...

    Tow Hitch (Factory) Waiting Room

    May I also recommend a 1up bike rack. I have one of their original versions and it has served me well for....15+ years without any issues. The "updated ones" are even better! Just add on the fat tire spacer kit and you're good to go. 2″ Super Duty Double – 1UP USA | OFFICIAL SITE Yes it is...

    Tesla trade-in offer

    I did get a follow up from my Advisor. The advisor said they tried to take this to "marketing" but they were not going to budge on the quoted trade in value. I did share my displeasure with the way they are handling this but they don't seem to really care. My advisor was apologetic and...

    Problems With Trade In Offer?

    Right now, the trade in process is broken as far as I am concerned. In my case they were quick re re-evaluate it to be lower by a significant amount. Honestly, I would assume they will not give you a reasonable price for a trade at this time. The advice given to me by my Advisor was to go to...

    Tesla trade-in offer

    They just adjust the MVPA to reflect the updated trade value. A little frustrating since this was used to secure the funding for some of us and now that equation has changed.

    Tesla trade-in offer

    I have a new value and it's 14% LESS than the original offer. I'm a little frustrated.
