    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    I've had this escalated pretty much to the top. They've claimed everything is within spec and normal. I eventually dropped it. The problem is there is not much adjustment that could be performed on the rocker panels. I remember this being an issue on the model 3. They ended up just...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    $940 sounds like gap fill from 12/21 pop. Other indicators are MACD trend reversal heading to negative / RSI / STOCH all heading down. The puzzling thing today is the 10-year also tanked which typically inverse of growth / nasdaq.

    Only thing on mine was my right mirror would not have complete movement similar to my left mirror. They said that was to spec.

    For what its worth, the Tesla-Certified body shop near me have ex-Tesla Service center employees and technicians that have worked on Tesla vehicles long before there were official service centers in the area. In fact Tesla poached some of them over to staff their new body repair / collision...

    Unfortunately, there is very little chance of returning a car anymore unless there is a legitimate lemon law claim. I'm also sharing your frustrations with delays and now that deliveries are done maybe they can focus on repairs.

    For mine as well. Wonder if this will get rid of the yoke worm? :D

    I don't see that being an item that will take days. They should be able to take care of that either via mobile service or very quickly at the SC.

    For the first two pictures, I had the same issue on mine. They would not fix. Said within tesla spec. If you get yours fixed, I'd be interested why tesla standards can vary between SCs and I'd press them again for it.

    "Refreshed" Model S model VIBRATION tracking and information thread!!!

    So I recently discovered I get vibration if I floor it but not if its a slow accelaration (feels nearly smooth). It almost feels like its coming from drivetrain / wheels / floor. Vibration goes away when I let off the accelerrator. I actually don't recall this being an issue until recently...

    I had this exact thing they would not replace the glass on mine. Might be the same in a lot of vehicles, most owners may not really notice. Part of my windshield is slightly distorted but you have to really look for it and its on the lower bottom of the windshield.

    Doesn't VW have a 20% stake in the company? Could be VW.

    I'm also waiting for parts so they fixed what they could and let me drive it home. They'll supposedly let me know this century when the parts will come in. Today I learned from Tesla there is 'seam sealant' between the tail light and body which may appear to be cracks but are actually not.

    Rage bought again at 930.10. This is becoming a bad habit.

    The Model S Refresh/Plaid delivery tracking spreadsheet probably has the numbers. Can't seem to find it at the moment. My recollection is 430k-ish VIN? Aside from the first 10k VINs, you probably more have to account for End of Q pushes as well. That is when I took my delivery.

    Sometimes having ECN Level 2 access helps. You can see where the big buys are and set your order slightly above that level.

    This video highlights the evolution of the newer door handle. There is a newer solid state sensor that replaced the previous microswitches; this would lead me to believe that adjustment could be done either at that level or just loosening the set screw that limits travel internally of the...

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    To a certain extent on some things but when they started saying that on everything (warped windows, misaligned doors, driver side handle that was recessed too far in partially blocking the LED, yoke rub when slow turning, rocker panel gaps), it got a bit unbelievable. At one point the SA was...

    I've heard 'within spec' more times than I care to hear. Happened to me with my Model 3 RWD. Happened to me with my Tesla Model S Refresh. I must live in an area where this is the norm.

    10b5-1 plan: 934,091 shares again. That puts it at a total of ~12M shares sold. ~70% complete (Assuming 17M shares total to sell).

    Pile that award up next to the Level 3 autonomy award for Mercedes EQS that has a whole bunch of fine print written all over it. Nothing on Rivian, I think they'll do fine. But apparently just being able to prototype a vehicle is all you have to do to have it be considered a contender for a...

    Bought more shares at $960.5, $952. Not surpassing the Low of $950.5 is a good sign and it closed above the long term trend line (~$960). Have more to buy if it keeps dipping. Love these opportunities.

    I have the exact same issue on my passenger side. They didn't do anything on it, said within spec. Among the other issues, this one was a lower priority for me.

    Ceramic coating on the glass surfaces and quick acceleration fulfills most of the wiping needs on my S. I would think the final wiper design would incorporate some sort of wiper well to store the wiper. Not a tesla thing to keep it so exposed. That or they go with traditional wiper design...

    Not spliced as far as I know. I guess it is relative. It doesn't seem that much bigger than the Y. I'd wait for final dimensions before making any decisions. I think the challenge is to make it functional as well as being able to fit it in a normal garage. Here is a video that better shows...

    Size comparison to S: This thing is huge.

    Has mirrors, a huge ass front wiper, and no door handles.

    Very impressed at how nice those gap tolerances are. A bit jealous of this 3 versus my S.

    My S is also getting average efficiency of 230 Whr/mi. That is pretty impressive considering the size.

    The fit and finish issues externally that I've seen should not be happening on a $95k vehicle. I'm hoping gigafactory / castings fix the issues with panel gaps, trim issues, etc. China Model 3 / Y's are apparently much better put together and we'll definately be waiting for Giga Austin Y's to...

    I finally heard the buzzing you're talking about. I have to put my ear right up to it to hear it though and it's coming from the turn signal side. Maybe I'm losing my hearing from all the kids yelling at me all the time. My car also has a airbag recall so not sure if they'll replace the...

    I don't care that they shifted the dates but telling me they were waiting on ordered parts when no parts were ordered is the thing i'm peeved about.

    Brought that up to Tesla, they basically said within spec. The HVAC would whistle when you have the vent speed higher than 6 and only if it was directed at the driver / passenger only.

    Is anyone else waiting forever for parts? I'm supremely frustrated at how long it takes for them to get parts for my car. They delayed my appointment by weeks from Early October to mid October telling me they were waiting for parts to come in. I finally dropped off the car and left it at the...

    If you look closely at the Form 4's filed recently (11/9 and 11/10), they do not seem to be from a 10b5-1 plan. These were most likley unplanned sales as a result of his twitter poll. Could it be they have not fully released all Form 4 from 11/9? Today would be the deadline. Otherwise he...

    Was going to get in on the Rivian IPO but at these prices I'm piling more $$ into Tesla shares and will be adding more if it keeps dropping.
  41. TheWalkingDad

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Some details on Rivian IPO (looking to start at $57-62 a share): Way overpriced IMO. Ford / Amazon have large positions already in the company. The EDV is interesting however.

    Nice deep dive into the main computer of the new S/X. Has similarities to 3/Y; everything is in one case including autopilot computer. Only thing that needs to be swapped out are cell comms depending on country location. Very cool. Components consist of: The main processor is now an AMD...

    Disappeared. The price never hit 1100 when I was looking at the 12k order. It actually was a 13k order at some point so some of the sell orders may have gotten fulfilled around 10:08 and that is only just through ARCA book.
  45. TheWalkingDad

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    So make sure to take L2 data with a grain a salt. Some of these are fake orders used to manipulate price action. The 12k wall at 1100 disappeared.
