    Where to service a Tesla in Asheville, NC

    I recommend Knoxville. Charlotte is very overwhelmed (they service over half of NC plus most of SC) and their customer service is very lacking in the past couple years. I just went to Knoxville a few weeks ago and it was night and day.

    Boombox Custom Sounds (not working)

    I was trying to help a friend (neither of mine have the speaker). We put a custom sound mp3 (5 seconds long) onto the drive. We were able to select it fine, but has an issue. In drive or summon, it plays fine through the external speaker, but as horn replacement, it only plays INSIDE the car...

    Sentry not working correctly for 6+ months, car going to sleep when it shouldn't

    I want to clarify that this issue isn't directly a Sentry issue. It's a "car going to sleep when it shouldn't" issue. Sentry not working is a byproduct of that. It has nothing to do with the USB drives or ports or cameras. Sentry, Summon Standby and Cabin overheat protection are all enabled...

    Sentry not working correctly for 6+ months, car going to sleep when it shouldn't

    Well, after a month of working absolutely perfectly after getting FSD upgrade, Sentry stopped working again last week. Just got 2020.12.6 last night and still isn't working today. The SD card that was in the car is dead. Can't reformat it on my Mac now. Tried three other working SD cards/thumb...

    Sentry not working correctly for 6+ months, car going to sleep when it shouldn't

    On my wife's LR RWD Model 3, we've not had Sentry working properly for quite some time. At first, I assumed it was the USB drives I used. I switched to a USB card reader. It worked for a short time and then ended up also not activating all of the time. Sometimes it would have small 595 byte...

    Tesla Owners Can Edit Maps to Improve Summon Routes

    They’re definitely not using it for speed limits. I have an area that’s always had incorrect speed limit in one direction that I looked at on OSM last year. OSM had it correct then and now. Google has it correct. I have no idea where it’s getting the incorrect number from but it’s frustrating...

    Tesla Owners Can Edit Maps to Improve Summon Routes

    Anyone actually see a difference after making changes? I updated an incorrect parking lot that said the entrance aisle was a public road two days ago and tonight summon still stopped halfway coming to me and said it couldn’t be used on public roads.

    Tesla Owners Can Edit Maps to Improve Summon Routes

    I know someone that just did this and someone in the community correct him, telling him it needed to be a single line per aisle

    Tessie is HW2 FSD KITT is HW3 FSD Both drive about 300 miles per week. KITT probably has slightly more AP miles though.

    Automatic Emergency Braking Failure, the Movie

    The moral of this story is: Pay complete attention while on autopilot! Imagine if workers had been present and the inattentiveness just mowed about 10 people down

    Automatic Emergency Braking Failure, the Movie

    When this video (and the side view video) were posted on a few different Facebook groups, the poster said it was video of his father in law, who had fallen asleep after a long trip (all of the posts of it have since been taken down). It doesn't matter how autopilot works, it's not meant to...

    2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Tesla Drive

    Many places do here, but that one doesn't. The superchargers are five minutes away so it won't really matter to most people.

    2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Tesla Drive

    Did a test run yesterday. This is in a P3 from Asheville to Cherokee, 2.5 hours on the Parkway. The drive back was just an hour/50 miles. Easy in even an older 60 kWh Tesla.

    Electric Pickup Roundup: Musk Says Tesla Truck 'Not Like Anything Else'

    except if it's a high margin specialty vehicle, then it would be a small profit center to help them build a regular truck that he said they may build later. Personally, I'm excited for the pickup, and I'm not a truck person. I will buy it if it's insanely futuristic. If not, I'll pass.

    Tesla Pickup Truck

    and Elon said this would NOT be a mass market vehicle, that people might not like it, and that they may make a normal pickup later, so those numbers actually make it seem like this could be the market for the Tesla pickup

    Electric Pickup Roundup: Musk Says Tesla Truck 'Not Like Anything Else'

    Elon has said more than once that this won't appeal to the masses, but he wants to make it anyway.

    Electric Pickup Roundup: Musk Says Tesla Truck 'Not Like Anything Else'

    Here's the version of that design overlaid on a Blade Runner scene Elon said it could seat 6 people, so the cab must be big. No reason for a hood without an engine. It simply can't be the rear, because one, the light is white instead of red, and two, the badge is on top instead of where a...

    Model Y - let the Photoshopping begin

    they used to have tight lips at Apple... no one saw the iPhone coming... or the iPad. I think they just don't care as much now on those, except whatever their self driving stuff is.

    Model Y - let the Photoshopping begin

    Well since I posted this three years ago, we now know that it IS based on the Model 3, and will NOT have Falcon Wing Doors.

    Blue Ridge Parkway Tesla Owners Drive - Oct 20th 2018

    Thanks for posting. I decided to do this event thinking MAYBE 20 cars total would show up between our group (WNC) and the others, but so far, just since Sunday, we've got 38 Teslas registered! Now I'm really excited!

    Lifetime Wh/mi

    I wish you could lock the first one, or they would just have one built in for lifetime that you couldn't touch. edit: added as a feature request
  24. McHoffa

    Lifetime Wh/mi

    234 lifetime average. Only time I've had the aero covers on was when I took two 1800+ mile road trips. Average on those trips was about the same as my lifetime average. But, since I got back from my last trip, my average, with no aero covers, is 216! I do mostly around town and up to 60 mph on...

    Supercharger - Hickory, NC

    Just searched and found this: That matches up to your findings. Must be based on specific area and not statewide?

    Model 3P-D 0-60 prediction?

    They don't have separate P and ludicrous models on the rest of the lineup so I highly doubt they would here, and also, the P100D instantly adds $33k over the 100D with same options, so I'd expect something closer to that over the AWD LR 3 (which itself will probably be $54k). I'd not set my...

    Model 3P-D 0-60 prediction?

    Just the RWD that's out now can hit 60 in 4.6-4.7 on a good day... adding AWD should shave 0.2 seconds off that. I'm sure P will push it into low to mid 3s. Cost? I'm guessing that like the S, it adds $30k to the AWD version (which should be $54k: $49k + $5k for AWD), so $84k for the P

    What do you dislike most about your Model 3?

    Rear glass replaced due to some distortion, and my frunk got stuck closed. They had to replace the latch.
  29. McHoffa

    What do you dislike most about your Model 3?

    The fact that it's been at the SC for over a week (it comes home tomorrow). Seriously though, after driving a Model S P85D for the past week, other than the quick acceleration, I will definitely miss the power liftback. The Model 3 trunk is so stiff. I hate slamming the trunk the way I have to...

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    Very true... I've done a few test drives, including in a P85D the first time I drove a Tesla in early 2016 (well before the Model 3 unveiling). Driving for a week is much different. I got to use it in my daily/weekly routines. It's great for hauling things, it's absolutely amazing at...

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    I got a Model S P85D (not upgraded to Ludicrous, but still quick). I like my Model 3 more though. I live in the mountains, so we have few places that you can (legally) go 0-60 in a straight line. Model 3 is more fun on the curves. All I know from the tech is that you have to remove the front...

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    SC was able to get the frunk open with the manual release (which is up behind the bumper somewhere?). Once it was open, it resumed working normally with the screen without issue. They said I could have the car back today, or if I wanted to just go ahead and replace the latch just in case, I...

    VW Getting Serious

    These are definitely weird mobile. Better than the Bolt but they’re still doing that whole “make it futuristic but then make the final product blah” that automakers have done for years. Also, I’ll believe the “$8000 less than Model 3” when I see it. They must have some amazing battery supplier...
  34. McHoffa

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    I just noticed that if I lock the car from the app I can hear the latch close back and the app shows that it’s closed. Listening closely when I tap unlock I can hear the latch open. The hood doesn’t move at all though, not even a millimeter.
  35. McHoffa

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    yeah, luckily the laptop is my backup/mobile work computer, but still, I do need it out of there ASAP! and yes, some raw meat sitting in the frunk, in the sun, for a couple days would be absolutely awful!
  36. McHoffa

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    I’ve tried every combination of everything but I’m still 99% sure it’s actually never disengaging the latch. If I power down the car completely and then start it back up it shows it as closed again.
  37. McHoffa

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    yeah, I tried that... just like when I hit the button, I hear the motor sound, but the latch doesn't release
  38. McHoffa

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    not sure how I could get upward pressure if I wanted to, but pretty sure it's actually latched
  39. McHoffa

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    I tried that a few times, but it didn't budge at all. I am pretty sure it's actually latched, even though the motor tried to move and the car thinks it's open. If I do a complete power down, wait, then power up, it shows it as closed again, until I hit the button on the screen or phone, or...

    Long Trip immediately after pickup - Go ahead or avoid?

    only drove my Model 3 three times before taking it on a trip from NC to FL for a week a couple weeks ago... no issues whatsoever. I was nervous though, and luckily my frunk issue from today didn't happen while we were on the road!
  41. McHoffa

    Front trunk/frunk stuck

    Today I went to open the frunk to get my laptop out before I had to leave, and I heard the latch release, but the hood was flush with the car still. The screen showed the frunk open. I opened the app, and it also showed it open. I hit it again just in case and I hear the little motor spin, but...

    First impressions in wet conditions

    I had the same experience. Auto wipers work perfectly in rain, but post rain, when you're just getting a mist spray off the road from other cars, it doesn't want to wipe very often.

    Cleaning vegan leather interior

    I also got sunscreen on my less than 2 week old seats last week. Almost all of it came off using Norwex cleaning cloth with water. I'll be picking up some wipes though for easier future cleanups.

    Acceleration loss for a split second

    Yes, I did. Wish they’d follow up on it though so I could explain and ask questions. Also emailed my local contact in Charlotte.

    Acceleration loss for a split second

    Just regular acceleration (not flooring it) on a regular flat road. Just felt like power completely went away for a split second. Hasn’t happened again and we drove another couple hundred miles since then. Just watching it.

    Hybrid owner switching to a Model 3

    I’ve driven my Model 3 just over 1000 miles (Charlotte to Asheville NC after pickup and then Asheville to FL) and average so far has been 266 Wh/mile. That’s at 75 mph most of that highway driving and hard acceleration as often as possible. No way my Leaf would see that efficiency with that...

    Acceleration loss for a split second

    Just over 1000 miles on my Model 3, on 10.5 Tonight we got in the car to run down the road. Two times within the first quarter mile while accelerating the car felt like it stopped getting power to the motor for a split second. Only way I can describe it is it felt like if you took your foot off...

    First impressions in wet conditions

    I drove from NC to FL on Saturday 4/7 and it rained the entire way, sometimes some of the hardest rain I’ve driven in. Car drove perfectly at speed, mostly with AP enabled except in the heaviest rain when I was concerned with seeing the lines which weren’t clear anyway. I forgot to reset the...

    Red not the best color for Model 3?

    I didn't even get a nice showroom... I took delivery of mine parked beside the service center while it was supercharging
