    Is it time to give up on trying to get FSD beta?

    For me (I did purchase FSD, but am not in beta) Autopilot $500. Cars come with cruise control and auto steer can’t handle about half the roads I take. NOA - $0. The car sucks at even suggesting lane changes (and routes for that matter) and takes exits like a drunk 14 year old. Auto Lane Change -...

    Insurance rate increase

    Expect rates to go up this year. With used car prices still elevated and parts supply issues, insurer’s costs are skyrocketing.

    FSD for 10k, is it worthwhile

    I do have FSD and unequivocally state that it is worth 12,000 (up from 10,000) Thai Bhat.

    Another Tesla Service Concern

    If they can reproduce the issue they will fix it under warranty . If everything is “working as intended“ or “in spec” there is nothing to fix and that is where the diagnostic fee comes in. With other companies, no it isn’t an issue. With Tesla, expect everything to be in spec.

    New Thatcham approved tracking device requirement slipped into renewal docs by NFU insurance

    Insurance is one of the things people tend to find confusing. A big part of that is that nobody bothers to read what they are sent. You are 10 steps ahead by understanding your policy. (I have a couple of decades working at an insurance company here in the states and could tell stories for days)

    What's your predicted loyalty to Tesla whenever replacing current car?

    completely subjective. I think the Model S is a stunning car (still) I don’t like the X or the 3 and think the Y is downright ugly.

    Looking for a Dimension

    Ok I checked. My Vette‘s seat is only 13“ off the ground.

    Looking for a Dimension

    My ‘17 S ranges from 19.5 to 21 inches. My Vette is in the shop so I can’t check that until I get it back tomorrow, but it certainly feels lower than 16 inches. The S has an adjustable air suspension.

    Lemon Model X (FL)

    IANAL, but aren’t you hit with the offset with either the buy back or replacement? Don’t forget you can re over finance costs with the repurchase if applicable.

    FYI Tesla insurance just called to let me know I haven't been insured since FEBRUARY

    You can get coverage, it is the price that you may get stuck on.

    FYI Tesla insurance just called to let me know I haven't been insured since FEBRUARY

    True, but unlikely there as well. The finance company is typically notified by the insurance company that insurance has lapsed and Tesla is too inept to do that.

    FYI Tesla insurance just called to let me know I haven't been insured since FEBRUARY

    I can’t imagine not reporting to C.L.U.E. But since that is for losses, I think OP is good to go. The one (minor) problem with the OP starting a new policy is that he now does have that 4 month or so gap In insurance coverage. If he stays with Tesla Insurance for the foreseeable future (several...

    Anybody know if the emmc recall has them putting in MCU2? Or are they just replacing it with the same MCU1?

    I might consider upgrading the MCU, right after they fix the MCU eMMC In my car.

    Is it always better to wait on FSD for credit card points?

    It is better to wait. Once FSD means something other than Fool Self-Driving, then maybe buy it.

    Those commission rates are high, but yes, agents get more for new business than renewal. Some agents can choose their commission level (like 15% new/10 renew or 8 new/ 6 renew or something in between) and price accordingly. That is why you may want to check with multiple agents as well. A...

    Carfax Report? [does a minor repair at a body shop appear on carfax?]

    It will only show up on Carfax IF the body shop reports to Carfax. Insurance companies and police departments don’t report to carfax.

    What's your predicted loyalty to Tesla whenever replacing current car?

    We want to have our experience suck less until we get another car. And it isn’t negativity, it’s an experience. hen someone asks how I like my Model S (AP3/FSD/MCU1), I tell them it is a perfectly mediocre car. Fit and finish are mediocre, the car is noisy (on the inside) and service is crap...

    What's your predicted loyalty to Tesla whenever replacing current car?

    If Tesla allowed me to transfer my FSD to a new one, that might increase my chance of getting another one - to maybe 1%.

    What is the best way to recondition the battery

    So can the car only travel 300 miles on a charge? Is it that you want it to display that it can go 330 no matter how far it can actually go? If the former, nothing you can do will restore the mileage as the battery is actually degraded, if the latter, well, it really doesn't matter, does it.

    1st Tesla - Shocked at process

    Tesla should really put a notice on their order page. Estimated delivery x to x + 3 weeks*. *Time doesn’t really mean anything to Tesla. Think of it this way, a year on Mars is 687 Earth Days.

    I traded in my Model S for a Prius Prime

    One of my coworkers bought a Model S about 2 years before I got mine. He frequently said that his Model S was both the best car he has ever owned (he is a car guy) AND the worst car he has ever owned. I haven’t talked to him in a year now with this working from home, but I’m pretty sure he has...
