    MY LR pickup today 210xxx The good and the bad...

    Trivial defects. Sure. Like the hood that wouldn't close on my 2021 MY last week, right off the truck. Required a $4000 repair at a service center 200 miles away from me. I was told they'd fix it "as good as new". Two months of excitement gets sucked out of the room pretty fast when you're...

    Model Y Pickup at NJ - Need New Checklist and info on License Plates

    Our experience is our experience. Some are great, some not so great. I've bought and sold dozens of cars in my lifetime. The "Tesla Experience" was unique, and (for me) not in a good way. If you're perfectly fine with accepting a brand new, $73,000 automobile that needs to be "fixed", or...

    Model Y Pickup at NJ - Need New Checklist and info on License Plates

    Customers back out of deals for any of a number of reasons, financing doesn't go though, cold feet, etc. I'm not at all saying ALL customer-refused cars have issues. The point is there are buyers (like me) that don't want a "fixed" car that required a $4,000 repair. Tesla does have "demo"...

    Model Y Pickup at NJ - Need New Checklist and info on License Plates

    After months of waiting, my Y arrived a couple of days ago. Damaged hood. Wouldn't close properly either. Advisor said "hey, no problem we'll fix it as good as new". As good as new. No discount, of course. Then they wanted to sell me someone else's "refused" car from another city. What...

    Taking Delivery - need some advice

    Inspect the car, carefully. You're spending pretty big dough for what is "supposed" to be a high-end luxury car, but probably isn't. My Y's hood arrived damaged. Wouldn't close. Was told it was an "easy fix" too, just like so many others that Tesla expect others to pay for quality which is...

    My delivery date is finally here! Why am I so nervous?

    Why were you so nervous? Because you had reason to be. Any "easy fix". That was the story on my Y too. After waiting months, I cancelled my Model Y that arrived yesterday. Was supposed to pick it up on Tuesday. Had the down payment ready, financing in place, and sold my existing EV (that I...

    Using / splitting an existing NEMA 14-50 socket between charging and other uses

    Yeah, nothing wrong with a good quality splitter or a power bar used safely. Pretty sure most of us have more than one of those in our homes, and aren't losing sleep. I guess people fear what they don't understand. Lot of fear in this thread.

    Using / splitting an existing NEMA 14-50 socket between charging and other uses

    That's a bit over-the-top right there. Here's the code for splitters / taps by the way (for anyone that's interested): 14-100 (c) where the smaller conductor (i) has an ampacity not less than one-third that of the larger conductor from which it is supplied; and (ii) is suitably protected from...

    Using / splitting an existing NEMA 14-50 socket between charging and other uses

    A little harsh. I get code / best practice. I've been using this setup for years on my EV, charging at 15 amps. The wiring, nor the circuit gets warm enough to become a concern to me.

    Using / splitting an existing NEMA 14-50 socket between charging and other uses

    A 16 amp charge for a maximum combined 40 amps on this circuit is perfect. Thanks guys for your "holy crap that was fast" quick responses. So looking forward to my new ride.

    Using / splitting an existing NEMA 14-50 socket between charging and other uses

    Oh, man. Thank you!! What are the amp charging rate choices?

    Using / splitting an existing NEMA 14-50 socket between charging and other uses

    Hi, first post. I pick up my Model Y on Tuesday. My previous EV had the ability to set the maximum amps for charging in the car's menu. My Tesla advisor tells me this isn't an option with the Y. The setup I have is 50 amps available with this circuit split between two sockets. 24 of those...
