    Does EV efficiency (as measured in wh/mi) degrade over life of EV?

    Looks like you really stumped everyone!

    What's Your Score?

    Tesla should allow everyone to have access to their safety score, not just FSD purchasers. I'd like to know how I'm doing and it could influence my decision to purchase FSD.

    Battery preconditioning while navigating...

    I've noticed a similar thing with my Model Y. On a trip from Connecticut to New York I started our with a full charge (323 mile range indicated). The car immediately started preconditioning the battery for supercharging even though I was 250 miles from the Supercharger. My Wh/m was very high...

    Model 3 All-Weather Floor Mats for sale

    I traded my Model 3 in for a Model Y but kept the Tesla Model 3 all-weather floor mats. These all-weather floor mats, sold by Tesla, are for sale for $65; original cost from Tesla was $225. I'd like to sell them locally (finger lakes, NY area) but if someone wants to pay the postage I guess I...

    18" OEM wheels (4) and Aerocovers (4) for sale - $400 - Rochester, NY area

    4 wheels and aerocovers for sale - $400 - no TPS or tires - some scuffing on a couple of the wheels. I want to sell them within 100 miles. Mailing them would be too expensive (unless you want to pay for UPS postage!)

    Laziness is winning, about to go to touchless automatic wash

    A Mister Clean Magic Eraser Sheet wetted a bit with Mobil 1 spray lubricant took the marks off my trim in about 2 minutes with minimal effort. 2 weeks later still looks great. If I need to, I'll spend the two minutes doing this after each car wash.

    Model Y vs. Toyota Highlander

    My wife and I are downsizing from 2 cars to just our Model Y and just this past week gave our Honda CRV to our son in North Caroline. This required us to drive the CRV to the Raleigh area then drive a rental Toyota back to New York. This was the first time I've driven a Highlander and I was...

    2nd Test drive thoughts

    It's difficult to drive smoothly in Standard mode and I think tires wear much faster in Standard mode. I pretty much only use Standard when passing or when giving demo rides. I'd really like a voice command "Set Acceleration to Standard" and it's reciprocal so when I needed to pass quickly I...

    Hits Garage Door!!!

    If I open the hatch when the Y is parked in my garage, the hatch rises so much that it hits the garage door (the door is above the Y when the garage door is open). Is there some way to adjust how far the hatch opens? Right now I need to remember not to open the hatch while the Y is in my...

    How do I Remove Music selections from the User Interface?

    Preconditioning problem?

    I had a Model 3 for 3 years prior to trading it in for the Y. I've never seen "battery preconditioning for fast charging" except for approx 20 miles prior to getting to the supercharger. This is happening when when at full charge and 250+ miles from the supercharger. And I never noticed a big...

    Preconditioning problem?

    So on Friday I picked up my Model Y from Mt Kisco, then drove to my brother-in-law's house for the night in Connecticut before driving back to Upstate NY - about 340 miles. I charged at his house overnight and left with a full charge. The display indicated that the battery was preconditioning...

    Current Delivery Times

    Yesterday I got a call from Mt. Kisco asking if they could move my pickup date forward. Evidently the car arrived early so now, instead of picking it up Wednesday the 12th of May, I'm getting it tomorrow the 7th of May. MSM, white interior, 19", autopilot, no trailer hitch. Ordered April 1st.

    Production Halt on Model Y?

    Are you certain Tesla is experiencing a chip shortage? The other auto manufacturers cut their chip orders early in 2020 because of expected loss of sales due to covid. The chip manufacturers then shifted production to other products (consumer electronics, PCs, etc) and when the auto companies...

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    How Can this Be? Model 3 vs. Model Y

    But the EPA states that my 2018 Model 3 is more efficient than the 2021 Y, yet the Y goes further on the same battery. This is a contradiction.

    "v11?" I get the sense that it will be quite a while before we see the new FSD. During Elon's conversation with Sandy Monro, Elon said that the new FSD was so good that it's likely to lull drivers into a false sense of confidence. It's not good enough to be great 999 times out of 1000...

    Thoughts on 2018 Model 3 LR RWD

    I have a 2018 LR RWD with ~50,000 miles on it. It is VIN 229xx and I purchased it in June of 2018. No problems so far - love the car! The only servicing was to replace the glovebox which wouldn't stay closed, installation of HW3 computer, and new tires.

    If you have (or had) an objectionable musty smell come from the AC or heater, then you should have them clean it. When I, and my family, noticed this smell after about 2 years and 40,000 miles of ownership, I replaced the cabin air filters and cleaned the evaporator coils as shown on several...

    You don't need wiper buttons when you can use voice command to control wipers. Same with glovebox, mirrors, HVAC, lights, fog lamps, heated seats, etc. I've seen lists of voice commands somewhere, maybe in the owners manual and I was surprised at how much can be done. The one voice command I...

    New Advice on buying a Used Long Range RWD Model 3

    This thread just convinced me to cancel my Model Y order that would have replaced my Model 3 LR RWD. I love my Model 3 but would have liked the extra space and more upright seating position of the Y. Tesla was offering me $34,600 trade-in on my 48,000 mile Model 3, but the Y without FSD would...

    Number of revolutions your motor has made.

    I did the same calculation for my airplane - how many times does the propeller turn between recommended engine overhauls. 1800 hours time between overhauls x 2250 average rpm x 60 min/hour = 243,000,000 revolutions between overhauls. During that time the plane would have flown approx. 216,000...

    Are Tesla Trade In Offer Negotiable?

    I expect that I'll be in the same situation. I want a Model Y for the space and higher driving position, but I love my Model 3 and if Tesla lowers the amount they will offer for trade in, I'll postpone my Y purchase until sometime in 2021, 2022, or even later. I have FSD on my Model 3, but not...

    2018 LR RWD For Sale - Upstate NY

    From what I understand, Tesla almost always decreases the amount that they will allow for trade in by the time it is actually traded in. The trade in quote is good for 30 days, but it is rare to complete the trade in 30 day, so they require a trade in requote , which is almost always lower...

    Problems with "early" M3 production cars??

    I picked up my Model 3 RWD June 12th, 2018 and currently have 45,000+ miles on it. Only issues so far: replaced glovebox that wouldn't stay closed, replaced HW2.5 w/ HW3.0 (did the charge pin replacement at the same time), tires don't last as long as I'd like.

    Autopilot Max Speed Setting?
