    How to change Owner's linked email

    Here is the issue I had a Model 3 and registered it with my email. I had some free miles given with purchase. I also got some referral miles. We then got a Model Y and because of the referral program it was purchased in my spouse's name with her email. Both of us got 1000 referral miles each...

    Keeping Tesla Wifi button in ON position all the time

    My one year premium connectivity ended a few days ago. Now that Tesla allows connection to Wifi hotspot I thought I might as well make use of my phone's hot spot data. I am able to tweak and get Tesla to recognize the hotspot from my phone and then play the podcasts. But when I out of the car...

    Lessons learned from a 2300 mile road trip

    Not going to give a detailed trip report as it will not be useful and tons of people have already covered it. This is more of some unexpected issues that came up on a trip from SC to Northern Virginia to Pittsburgh and back via Winston Salem. 1. The onward trip to NorVir was straightforward...

    Add to favorites in Phone screen

    I have the Model Y and a Samsung Galaxy S21. I have allowed the contacts from my phone to show up on the Tesla when I bring up the call option. I have not found a way to add certain phone numbers from my contacts to the favorites screen so that I can view and call than quickly rather than...

    Marked Delay in getting Bill of sale

    I got my Y on 11/27 from NC since out state ( SC) does not allow sales or service centers of Tesla. I got the max allowed 30 day temp tag. That has expired on 12/28. I contacted Charlotte Tesla a week ago about the excess delay in getting my bill of sale mailed to me. She stated that this is...

    2019 SR+ totalled. How to find insurance value

    My Sept 2019 SR+ with no FSD but with heated rear seats was totalled when another driver made an illegal dart across 2 lanes to get to a center lane when both our views were blocked by a large vehicle standing on the right lane. The other insurance company is unsure of its value and will try...

    Mobile Hotspot and non auto reconnect of Wi-fi

    I have the unlimited T-mobile hotspot and hence decided to not get the monthly LTE plan from Tesla. I initially had the hotspot configured to connect with my Model 3 and could see the hotspot name under the wi-fi usernames. And then it played the internet radio stations well. But I have...

    Bookmark audiobook

    I have my T5 partitioned into TeslaCam and music. In the music folder I have a few audio-books that I have ripped from disks and each disk has multiple sections. But when I stop the car and return after a hour or so the original stopped area disappears and unless I keep track of where I had...

    Requesting only Mobile service

    The AP in my SR+ has stopped working. The T symbol below PRND symbols that used to be there in the past are no more. Resetting the vehicle does nothing. I live 100+ miles from the SC but coincidentally I heard the mobile tech for that SC lives in my town. So I would like him to see my vehicle...

    Is my AP in SR+ trying to kill me

    I have had the car now for over a month. I have tried TACC a couple of times and it seems to function decently. But it is not different from adaptive cruise on my Acura. I have tried to engage AP twice and on both occasions it has led to near disasters. Both were activated while I was in the...

    Calculating cost of electricity used

    I don't see an app like Stats for Android. I don't want to get a subscription model that charges a monthly fee for each Tesla. Especially it is desktop based and has a lot of info that I don't really need. I have set up Trip A as monthly data and Trip B as Life time data. The Trip A is reset on...

    Your (reasonably) ideal Model 3

    Hi I have a SR+ and after having it for 3 weeks I have some idea of what I want in the model 3 that I am willing to pay for and replace an ICE car. 1. I am happy with is 0-60. I am not lusting for any performance models at the present time. 2. I am willing to pay for a slightly better fit and...

    Keeping windows open while parked

    I have a new SR+. I charge to 80% overnight and drive in the morning. This morning after a 21 mile drive the SoC was 70%. I have pared it in a private parking area in an office but has the full sun. I have silver front windshield shades. But in the past 4 hours the SoC has fallen to 67% in 92F...

    What Really is the difference between SR and SR+

    Elons has brought in so many models like Performance, LR AWD, LR-RWD (now gone), mid range ( gone again), SR, and SR+. He has also allowed features of SR+ to be kept on in cars that were SR only and then taken away. And he has brought in an expression "partial premium" but never quite defined...

    "Hold" and friction braking

    I have started to try standard regenerative braking and try to come to a stop by slowly releasing the accelerator pedal when I come to a stop sign or a traffic light. But I have noticed two things. At a stop sign sometimes it does not come to a full stop and it becomes a rolling stop unless I...

    Why is Charging app a bit rudimentary

    I mean the charging portion of the Tesla app for the smart phone and also the portion in the car. Both show a battery symbol and some markings which I presume are 50,60,70,80 and 90%. But the slider to adjust it is a bit unwieldy and trying to press it and move it does not work half the time...

    Regen braking and neck pain

    So on the first day we get the car and the salesperson stated to keep the Reg as standard. I take it out of the dealership and it is quite strong. As soon as I slowed and took my foot from the accelerator ( used to that technique in ICE car to let it coast to a red light) the car jerked and...

    Questions about charging on a long road trip

    First post here I am going to buy a Tesla SR+ in a week's time. LR-RWD was my choice but not available. I plan to take a 600 mile trip a month later. I used a better route planner with Tesla superchargers and it gave me these first 3 charging options, when starting out at 90% charge from home...
