    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Oh no. Worst news. Fingers crossed this will not be for you and the others. The ever present noise is not acceptable!

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    100%. With the HVAC off, the noise is almost "tolerable". On hot days with more AC usage or when supercharging.....unbearable!

    Model Y water leak

    Terrible. 35 days with my 2021 Model Y Performance and I am back to BMW. The difference between companies is night and day. It is essentially impossible to call and speak with anyone at Tesla, including Finance. With BMW you can call USA headquarters, any dealer, any service dept and they...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    I am so sorry! This is disgusting. I was so stoked and waited a long time for my 2021 MYP to arrive, only to be sh*t on by Tesla. They have some brilliant ideas, but they should focus on customer service & build quality and parts more and less on farting blinkers or Santa in a sleigh ;) Just...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Please read most of the posts on this thread....NONE of us are complaining about the pedestrian acoustic warning sound. I personally love that sound; my son calls it the space ship. The sound is coming from defective or cheap water battery/coolant pumps. The noise is 100% unacceptable!!

    Proper HVAC setting to prevent outside windshield condensation in humid conditions?

    EVERY modern car since about the early 90s with AUTO hvac works best and most efficiently with the hvac set to AUTO! I am always baffled when people use manual settings with a car equipped with AUTO hvac. I have had easily 25 cars since 1990, and I have used AUTO 70F in EVERY car in all...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    SO sorry Jennifer. I kept my new 2021 Model Y Perf. for 35 days before selling it. The noise was so AWFUL, that unless I was on the highway, the noise would go over normal music or conversation volume. At stop lights or red light, the sound was deafening and it just became all I could hear :(...

    Ride Comfort Improvement

    My 2021 MYP ride was shockingly firm and harsh and jarring on many of our crumbling (and sad) Los Angeles streets. I always thought my '19 and /20 BMW i3S suspension was awful, but the MY is almost as rough and hard. Softer suspension would be amazing on the Y, and they could at least add a...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    WOW!!! This is the best news. How terrible for Tesla to ignore it for so long and make owners fight, but this seems to be going in the right direction. I really hope Tesla abandons their "noise is normal" stance. PLEASE keep us posted. You are awesome for doing this. You have been fighting...

    Well, just prepared that Service WILL tell you this is "normal", although there are NO cars built before May or June that have this awful, near unbearable noise! So genuinely sorry you too! :(

    CA Waiting Room

    SO SO many of us had this issue. I took mine to an independent and love alignment shop. Faster and did so much better than most Tesla centers do. Fast and only $75! So worth it!

    Angry no Homelink and now no premium connectivity:

    No FM radio in Canada? My 2021 MYP has High Def FM and sounds amazing, but of course all the commercials suck. 1 year free Premium Connectivity for MPY. No AM radio and Homelink is widely known!

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Yup...the crazy car market allowed me to sell a 2021 MYP that I drove for a little over a month and get ALL my money back. I mean every cent. We have traded in dozens of new-ish cars before and there is always a little (or sometimes a lot) of upside down. This is the 3rd time in 25 years that...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    I am so sorry :( I took delivery of my new MY Performance on 8/15 and I sold it on 9/22. Shortest I have ever had a new car. I cannot believe Tesla would deliver cars with such obviously defective water/coolant pumps. Mine was so loud, even music or conversation in the car would be affected by...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    If my Model Y sounded as quiet as yours...I would have been much happier. But, I am not saying yours is silent, but some of us have it much worse :( Either way, unacceptable!

    My MYP has the new hepa/biodefense mode AND the awful noise. Build and delivery 8/21.

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    SO sorry you too. Tesla is telling us it is "normal" but other Teslas do not have it. Honestly....it is louder than being inside our G63 AMG or Land Rover Defender. If Tesla used some rinky dink or homemade part to get around the part and chip shortage and delivered our Model Ys with this...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    Mine has the new hepa biodefense mode, build and delivery 8/21 AND still had the horrible, ever present noise. The noise in this guy's video is so normal and quiet....I would have killed to have my pump(s) so quiet!!!

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    I did not ask them, as you CANNOT call Tesla and they are terrible at email response. I just got my payoff from the Tesla website under my account and let my BMW dealer payoff the account. Fingers crossed Tesla does not cause any he** ;) 35 days in my new 2021 MYP and the experience totally...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    The noise the pumps are making on what appears to be June 2021 to current builds (Y for sure, maybe Model 3 too) are NOT normal in any situation. The noise begins when you open the door and then gets even louder when you put your foot on the brake and select D or R. If it is really hot, the...

    Steering Wheel off center?

    Using AP, the wheel icon on the screen showed a slight tilt to the right as well. After a wheel alignment....perfect! Tesla wanted to charge me and wait weeks and weeks for an appt. I had our local and loved tire shop do the alignment. They made me a cup of coffee and did it while I waited...

    phone sound quality

    When I make a call or receive a call in my new MY, the phone quality on my end (in the car) is excellent...clear, crisp and clear. BUT, everyone to date complains that I sound horrible...tinny, muted and sometimes with a echo. I have an iPhone 12 btw. It's so bad, my spouse will not talk to...

    APPALLING quality control; alignment!

    WOW...I had this too, and it was impossible to remove it all. I was able to get most of it. HOW and WHY should quality control allow this to leave the factory like this, and no one at the delivery center looks at cars? The gap panels, misaligned window trim and issues like...

    APPALLING quality control; alignment!

    I have had this happen with my driver window 1 time at work, pulling into our parking structure. I hope it was a 1x fluke, as it has not happened since. I am sorry it is happening so frequently for you! I hope Service will help you. Tesla Service terrifies me :-o

    White interior with wood dash from factory. Oops

    O M G This is what I have posted about, and some have gotten "ruffled" from me saying that Tesla has appalling quality control! We buy at least 1 car a year, sometimes too, and we have never had anything like this from any other brand ranging from Honda to Rolls!

    APPALLING quality control; alignment!

    This is true. I have had 5 full size Range Rovers and 4 were literally sent from the gods 100% perfect and 1 was kind of a nightmare and the Service Dept. sucked. I kept buying from that dealer, but quickly realized their Service Dept. was sent from hell. Once I switched Service Depts., I...

    APPALLING quality control; alignment!

    The alignment should take no more than 30-60 mins, but it depends on how busy they are when you drop it off, and if there is an available tech. Same goes for the homelink. I would plan on dropping off in the morning and picking up that afternoon (if all goes smoothly). Nothing is super quick...

    ALL the time, even when just opening a door...but the noise is worse when running the HVAC system.

    Model Y not recognizing me when I try to open it, even with the app on

    My new MYP did the exact same thing for me, but just one time. I turned Bluetooth on and off on my phone (to play it "safe" I let the Bluetooth sit off for 30 seconds or so). When I turned Bluetooth back on (iPhone 12), I was able to open my door and it has (knock on wood) been perfect ever since!

    EXACT issue with my MYP. Get it aligned ASAP, it is mentally a win and it will save your tires!

    Model Y water leak

    I test drove two new BMWs today and many models offer phone as key ;) So....you might never have to carry a key fob! Being honest, I almost ordered a Tesla key fob before my delivery of my MYP, as I was quite nervous, untrusting and weary of using my iPhone as my car key...but it has been...

    MYP 2021 range: ~190 miles on a 90%-charge. Normal?

    I keep my HVAC set in every car I’ve owned since the early 90s to AUTO 70F. Since this morning & this afternoon were not hot, the car didn’t need to blow hard & long to cool the cabin. I noticed my battery lasting longer. Today was the coolest day we have had since I took delivery on 8/15/21.

    Loud air conditioning. On auto, in south Florida, unit never seems to reach set temperature and so keeps blowing. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Night & day difference. With the 3M ceramic high-performance tint, essentially no heat comes through the glass roof or the windshield now. I could not imagine driving it without it now.

    MYP 2021 range: ~190 miles on a 90%-charge. Normal?

    This morning on my way to work and home, it was MUCH cooler than it has been for months and months. Normally my 36 mile round trip (30% city streets, 70% freeway) takes usually 12-14% battery. Today using A/C, but being so much cooler.... not as much as normal; the round trip used 10% battery!

    Streak Free Windows?

    I honestly do not know. The lint free cotton, glass cleaning towels I bought on Amazon combined with Invisible Glass spray has given me YEARS of flawless auto glass.

    MYP 2021 range: ~190 miles on a 90%-charge. Normal?

    This is true! Besides from my many MBZ and BMW diesels that got over the top amazing mpg (higher than advertised), most, if not all of my gassers got below the advertised mpg!

    Streak Free Windows?

    Well..the Swedish cloths are more of a scrubbing sponge (great for counters and smooth top electric or Induction electric cook tops). They are too small and hard to use for large glass areas. I swear by and only use no lint cotton towels and Invisible glass spray (not foam). Perfect windows...
