    Best speed for road trips?

    I find 75mph is best for me, completed a 6400-mile trip last year in my 2020 Model Y and I pretty much kept it at 75, no issues, this May I will be driving cross country again to Miami and then up to Portland Maine and back to San Diego. So, this trip will be more then 6400 miles and will keep...

    Front License Plate Wrap?

    Hi have one on each of my model 3 & Y, also the DMV will send you a letter extending the program. When I first got my first one, it only cost $50.00 the one for the Model Y which was a year later was $80.00. Note that on the Y it gave me Radar problems with Auto Pilot so the plate was a little...

    App for tracking stats

    If you do get them like Stats, Tezlab and Teslafi make sure that they are not continually polling your car as this will also eat up battery. I no longer use Teslafi but do use ABRP and Tezlabs for my trips. Fred

    Dead Screen after 2021.36.5.6

    Set up a Mobile service call for Tuesday from 8am - Noon, I leave for Las Vegas at 1pm so hopefully this guy can fix it, the Hard Reset by removing the contractor didnt work, so Im guessing either the computer or the screen.

    Is vampire drain still a thing?

    As long as you have everything turned off, Dashcam, Sentry mode, Smart Sunmon, climate over protection mode and any other 3rd party apps that will poll your car like Teslafi or A better route planner etc… you should be fine, I use TezLab to push it into Deep Sleep mode and leave it alone.

    Why is Tesla's online store such garbage?

    Like zPaul above, never had issues ordering directly from Tesla, also when it comes to their adapter they say out of stock, Recd a faulty CHAdeMO adapter and it was replaced right away after it being checked out by the Moblie ranger. Went into the Service Center on a Saturday morning and picked...

    7 Seater MY underbin storage?

    Hansshow Power Frunk Trouble

    I learned to stay away from their products as they mostly failed, lots of youtube videos on this problem, I got stiffed on a set of side mirrors for my model Y, they sent the wrong ones for a model 3 and gave me the run around to get them changed out. I wont buy anything from them. Fred

    Tesla CHAdeMO adapter

    Today the most commonly commercial EVSE would be Electrify America, these are located at Walmart’s and Target stores and also shopping malls. This past May I completed a 6478 mile 14 day trip across the nation and back, did not use the CHAdeMO at all, yes it’s good to have but not needed. The...

    Have you wrapped your Model 3/Y yet?

    If you don’t have experience wrapping cars, don’t do it, it’s a pain and requires lots of patience, pay the extra money and have a pro do the job. I didn’t wrap both my Tesla’s I just had frontal Xpel PPF installed, probably the best thing I’ve done from the 50 or so mods Fred

    Owners Manual Crashes Model Y Software?

    Same thing happened last week, as far as the guy that said why would you us the on-screen manual, well it’s right there, why would I need to stuff more papers in my glove box and it’s our preference to look up things on the screen, I happen to be looking for the opening the hood with out power...

    Tesla Model Y, Dancing Hood.

    Model Y 6400 mile road trip

    I’m back, Dennisis correct, if you set the Nav straight to your destination, for example San Diego to Key West Florida, it will map it all out. Each stop it tells you how much you need to charge up to this Percentage and go. It was so cool because no matter if you hammered it or not you always...

    2021 Tesla Model 3 Performance All Season Tires?

    Unhappy with the Resale value for my 2019 Model 3

    I was thinking of upgrading to a 2021 SR+ to get the version 3.0 computer, and with the added range is also a plus but like you I will have to wait for the replacement, haven’t looked on the website for the wait time. Fred
  38. Wennfred

    Should I buy a SR 3?

    As far as tire noise on my SR+ I use the Cross Climate Plus, there are quiet and great all weather tires.

    Should I buy a SR 3?

    I use the Tesla wall connector inside the Garage for the LR model Y, and a Bosch 240 32amp EVSE for my SR+ outside, it’s plenty of juice and works fine. I owned a 2011 Leaf & a Chevy Volt. Fred
  40. Wennfred

    Should I buy a SR 3?

    The only advantage of purchasing a SR+ today is that it will come with version 3.0 computer and you will be able to subscribe to FSD. Other then that, the price is still great and the added range is also great. I was thinking of selling this 2019 SR+ to get the new one with 3.0 FSD computer...

    Bought a Tesla Friday and its Screen states it's an Model 3 Long Range SSE

    Doesn’t look like the previous owner did a factory reset when they sold the car. It’s good to reset the car so that you can clear out all personal information. Fred

    Bought a Tesla Friday and its Screen states it's an Model 3 Long Range SSE

    SSE is the name of that car, you can change the name to whatever you want to call it by pressing on the top where it says Easy Entry and at the bottom of that black box it will say Drivers Profile Settings, there you will rename your and delete the SSE name, your App will then automatically...

    My 12 volt battery is almost dead; my Tesla app doesn't work & and I can't talk to a dealer

    Make sure to pull the cable all the way out so that the other end will come out with it, the 12 volt battery will need to be dead for this to work. It won’t allow the hood to open if you still have power to the car.

    My 12 volt battery is almost dead; my Tesla app doesn't work & and I can't talk to a dealer

    I made a video that shows how to open the front Tow bar port to connect a 9 volt battery to it to open the hood. Once the hood is open you can get to the 12 volt battery to charge it or swap it out. You will need a 10mm wrench so make sure you buy one and keep it close by. Note that you won’t...

    Unhappy with the Resale value for my 2019 Model 3

    I decided to hold off on any sales and purchases, my 2019 M3 SR+ is a solid car, no issues, I am waiting for the newer 4680 batteries to see how much more range we can get. 400+ miles is my sweet spot. Fred

    Any problems or challenges in having two Model 3's in the same household?

    Like everyone above, I have a M3 & MY, the model Y is LR so it takes the spot in the garage with the Tesla wall charger. The model 3 sits outside connected to a level 2 Bosch charger, this EVSE is the one I used for my Leaf & Volt. Works well and no issues. So if you want to save and get...
