    Stolen J1772 Adapter

    I didn't have the key with me so the car was locked. I had to use the app to unlock. Service Center? Is that a joke? LOL

    Stolen J1772 Adapter

    I went to the X the other day. Unplugged the J1772 gun, then I was able to pull out the adapter. Then I realized that I didn't have the key with me so the car wouldn't unlock the chargeport like it normally would. I recalled it happened before but I can't purposely replicate it. Glitch?

    Frunk Thoughts or Engineering Disaster

    Can the Tesla premium connectivity share its data with other devices? There're many use cases for the hotspot in the car. Especially one with an external antenna likes mine. My old Chevy has a built-in AT&T hotspot and via its big antenna, we could get internet access in many of the campgrounds...

    Frunk Thoughts or Engineering Disaster

    If you don't care about live traffic and sat view then yes. I use my verizon and t-mobile SIM cards depend on the location. You can get T-Mobile Business Tablet Plan: Unlimited Data for $10/month tax included.

    Frunk Thoughts or Engineering Disaster

    My entire Costco load fits in the frunk. I don't have the picture but a big Costco pizza box can fit perfectly in the Model X's frunk. or a great place for clothes and sleeping bag when I go camping. It shields my hotspot from the weather. It's incredible how Tesla was able to arrange...

    Ioniq 5

    The gas price is at all time high now so it's easy to understand why people are hopping on EV bandwagon. I tried to request a quote for a Toyota truck and one dealer came back with $55 over MSRP offer... haha 55 over, not $550 or $5500. When gas price goes down, people will be back buying ICE...

    Questions after 1 week owning my 2022 MXP

    Phantom braking has been happening way before Tesla went with vision only. When I drove a vision only car, it performed really bad at night.

    12v battery upgrade - worth it?

    If you drive the car often then the 12V battery doesn't work as hard as the one in a car that mostly sitting for a long period of time. My 12V battery was replaced last year under the factory warranty.

    EV Spotting Thread

    A couple months ago, I spotted a Mercedes EQS with a Georgia mft plate near LinkedIn in Sunnyvale. I don't like the look of the exterior. It isn't classy. I'd also seen Lucid Air with camo driving around in Fremont way before they released it. If you're in the Bay Area, you probably know where...

    Model Y LR vs. EV6

    I test-drove the EV6 GT today. The car doesn't few very quick and the pedal has a little bit of travel before it engages. The LR Model 3 which I drove a few weeks ago felt much quicker. IDK, probably because the low SoC (20%)?

    Report yourself high mileage and repairs to date?

    4-6k, they have several options. Extended warranty starts when the mft warranty ends. Claim process: Call the XCare number to open a new claim, open the service request with Tesla to get a repair estimate. Once Tesla sends the final invoice, call XCare to have them pay Tesla then pay the $100...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    My Pentium II computer running Windows 95 with IE can load google.com faster than this AI computer. As a computer engineer, this is boggled the mind. Do the people at Tesla who code this even use it at all? Even the '22 Model 3 with AMD Ryzen reboots mid drive. In comparison, this company in a...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    How is it even be possible for them to make the internet browser so slow with this much processing power of the MCU2/MCU3? This has to be intentional.

    How to install the model x mud flaps?

    It took me 20m to install these. I used a bit holder with a power drill for the screws. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YPPFYXR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    My Model X May Have Saved My Life

    That makes me want to test drive the Y. What was the weather conditions when you drove the Y? The seats, the noise level and the ride quality of the 3 are no-go items for us. We drove it through the mountain roads and the pacific coast highway. I'd say we haven't experienced a car that noisy...

    My Model X May Have Saved My Life

    You're 100% correct. I rode the 2022 Model 3 over the weekend; the rough ride and the wind noise wasn't fun. The Y is probably the same.

    Extended Warranty Options

    My problem was quite unique. When navigating the blue line showing direction doesn’t appear on the main screen. SC tried their best several times but couldn’t fix it. They reloaded the map tiles and the firmware but when I got the car back, the issue wasn’t fixed. They recommended to upgrade to...

    2021.24.28 Rolling out to MCU1/FSD MS/X

    The software for the MCU1 is making the Tegra CPU struggle. One could argue that the Tegra has enough power to draw the map if they put the time into optimizing it. Tesla should just roll them back to the most stable version and get rid of all the unusuable junks like the browser if they can't...

    Last I saw mine it was downloading at 66%, then it's gone.. Now the MCU is showing up to date with 2020.48.37.8. Screw this.

    Extended Warranty Options

    The XCare rep, customer service rep and claim adjuster have been super friendly and informative when I talked to them. My MCU failed so I'm going through the process of replacing it. The service center claimed that they don't work with 3rd party warranty but when I sent the quote to XCare, the...

    My Tesla S P85d nightmare. I don't think I ever want another tesla ever again and want to get rid of this junk asap

    I was looking to purchase a P100D too and walked away from 3 deals because they didn't pass my inspection. One of them has very low mileage, super clean Carfax and Autocheck but has a bended front plate and some hidden front end damages. Nothing that couldn't be fixed. Man, I wish I knew the...

    My Tesla S P85d nightmare. I don't think I ever want another tesla ever again and want to get rid of this junk asap

    Again OP, buying a used car is purely a game of luck. You might end up with a good working car or you stuck with a bad car because the previous owner kicked the can down the road. The risk could be minimized by buying a used car with mft warranty, get extended warranty or pay for a PPI. You...

    AP2 & MCU1 - Does upgrading to MCU2 also upgrade AP2 to AP2.5 or 3, and does it enable sentry mode?

    What you get: - MCU2 - AP3 (HW3) computer - Both screens Yes, you'll have proper Sentry Mode. No, they don't offer MCU2 upgrade without AP3 computer. For older cars without the side cameras, upgrade costs $1500 because the newer AP computer isn't available for non-AP and AP1 cars. $500 optional...

    My Tesla S P85d nightmare. I don't think I ever want another tesla ever again and want to get rid of this junk asap

    Are they some 22 years old lawyers doing free work to gain experience? This. Unless it's a certified pre-owned which acts as short warranty coverage and comes with an inspection. Most used cars often change multiple hands (auction to dealer to another dealer) and are mostly sold as-is with no...

    My Tesla S P85d nightmare. I don't think I ever want another tesla ever again and want to get rid of this junk asap

    If the car was registered then that company was the owner. I hope you win the lawsuit and get your money back. Don't let that lawyer be another money pit that you burn. Best of luck.

    My Tesla S P85d nightmare. I don't think I ever want another tesla ever again and want to get rid of this junk asap

    There're no such things as all accidents are reported and dealership has to have the records. Carfax and autocheck are as good as their data sources. If sources like insurance or collision centers didn't report then they'd have no data of the incident or the repair work. The used car dealership...
