    Constant chime bug solved

    Just FYI, after downloading the latest Tesla software update, the music one numbered 2021.32.21, I started getting seemingly random chimes as I drove. Rebooting the car, powering down, turning the music software off, etc. didn't help. It turned out the update had somehow started (a bug!) the...

    Hauling long things

    I know roof racks are an option but for this barbarian, can you fit an eight-foot length of lumber inside the Y? Does the front seat recline enough to shove a 9-foot kayak over it, as I do with my Highlander? (With appropriate coverings!) Trying to imagine practicality when it's Home Depot time.
