    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    That would be great timing for my lease end next year.

    model Y paint doesn’t match

    This is normal on most white cars. The paint appears different colors when applied to sheet metal vs plastic bumper.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Contact your Advisor so they know about the pillar gap. Then make an appointment via the app for them to fix it for free.

    Tire Rotation, vague instructions.

    It is 100% dependent on what tires you have. Sizes and tread pattern (rotation requirement). What do you have? If you have the stock 19” Conti RX, which are non-directional, then you should do “A.” Fronts go to the rear (crossed) and rears come down. This will eventually lead to your current...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    EDIT: @oholladay beat me to it. Elektrek's take: Tesla Model Y with new 4680 cells shows impressive potential for faster charging "When it comes to the energy capacity, the vehicle accepted 59 kWh going from 9% state of charge to 97%. It’s hard to produce a perfect representation of the...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Hopefully it eventually becomes a cheaper model. Our 2020 LR AWD was about $12k cheaper than a 2022.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    $39,990 Base price is great... $20k for AWD is a bit much haha. I still say, sell this at $50k and we have a winner.

    We were offered the Standard Range Model Y

    I wish this was just offered as a new entry-level model, with an appropriate $5x,000 price. I would consider it when our LR goes off lease. The new ones are getting crazy with their prices and 279 is plenty of range.

    Even my Alfa Romeo does this. Come on Tesla, bring the function back!

    Lease early termination with zero due?

    I hope this continues into 2023...

    Lease early termination with zero due?

    Thank you. I was waiting all day hahah.

    Lease early termination with zero due?

    Just checking in, so it seems the $0 Due on the Quote is real. You walk away basically (not including any wear and tear fees).

    Auto headlights with wipers function deleted

    Yup. My 2018 Model 3 did it perfectly. My 2020 Model Y, stopped awhile ago. Very very annoying. It's a law, so it should just automatically go on (or give us an old school stalk).

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    I hear you. A track-mode type of setting where you can control the f:r torque split would be incredible. I think you'd be fine in Off Road mode though, since it's just nannies, not ABS, not rollover control, etc.
  15. Snow Drift

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    Those buttons exist in cars to allow for added grip in deep snow, mud or sand. Sometimes you need the tires to spin more in order to grip. VDC/ESC, etc will brake the wheels and reduce engine torque which gives you less power. That’s bad in deep snow etc. It’s also bad on track where the car...

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    That’s not the safety features of traction control, that’s VDC off. It reduces wheel braking to allow for extra slip for added grip. It’s not making the car dangerous. Drive most cars and turn off VDC or ESP, etc.
  17. Snow Drift

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    It probably disables Nannies like a VDC or ESP off button, not roll prevention and safety systems.
  18. Snow Drift

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    The Model Y with winter tires continues to impress. As said before, I've owned 6 Subarus (including 3 WRX and a STI) and I could make their rear slide out on turns if I wanted it to. The extra-rear wiggle from Tesla Model Y's RWD-biased Dual Motor is fine. Just drive the car understanding that...

    Supercharger - Tilton, NH

    Next time go north to Ashland off 93. You could go straight to it from Laconia, and it is about the same 20 min driving time as going to Tilton (I get that Tilton is on the way home).
  20. Snow Drift

    St. Augustine Area - Tire Mounting?

    Hey, I searched and didn’t see anything… Where in the St. Augustine area do you guys have tires mounted/rotated? The closest Tesla service center is in Jax and I’d like to find a local shop that can handle lifting the battery pack properly. Thanks in advance.

    Tesla releases big, new software update with Disney+, Car Wash Mode, remain connected to wifi, and more - 2021.24.x

    What backtracking? Are you saying that you live in Tahoe during the winter and don't take your car to a car wash? You stand outside with water and wash the car? There's still salt, sand, or dirt, that should be washed off the car in winter. Even if you leave it inside during a storm...

    So, how have you gone 4+ years without using a car wash if you can't wash your car in winter? I doubt people who live full time in Tahoe, or similar, wouldn't use a car wash. My comment was to someone from the Bay Area.

    We don't have car washes where you stop the car in place. Here the car goes on a conveyor belt, you exit the car, and people hand wash the car as it is rolled. If you want one where you stay inside and it's rolled on the conveyor belt in Neutral, then it's automatic and slaps the car around...

    Crazy. Very few places will do that, as it is a liability. If you drive the car into a worker... Plus, I'd rather use the car wash like everyone else, get out, go inside, pay, wait for it to be done. Tesla just overcomplicated it having the parking brake apply automatically.

    Tesla releases big, new software update with Disney+, Car Wash Mode, remain connected to wifi, and more - 2021.24.x

    I've never complained about the paint, but...two things: 1) Not automated. The issue here in New York is that our Hand Wash places have the driver exit the car and then a belt rolls the car through as real live humans wash the car at various stations. This reqiures the attendant at the car...

    Suffolk county, NY model Y LR AWD WAITING!!

    That happened for us. I got a call about a car being available that matched my build specs. Someone either walked away or didn't have financing work out for them. The car was in great shape, and this was back in September 2020.

    You don't. You leave that empty until you get your insurance binder once you have a VIN. Tesla provides that box now because in other states you can buy a car by showing insurance on your other cars. Nope. You will need to go back and put in your insurance binder on this new car once you get...

    Nope. Toggle off walk-away and auto-wipers before you leave the car...and pray they understand Transport (tow) Mode, or put someone in the seat while it goes through the wash. You can always have your app ready and unlock the car after you leave OR use your key card to drive car, not the...
