    2021.24.28 Rolling out to MCU1/FSD MS/X

    2021.24.28 Rolling out to MCU1/FSD MS/X

    Hey, WE are the beta testers. You can add more to that list of deal breakers. No more sunroof No high power AC charging option Nasty paint Horrible service Extremely limited interior configurations, etc. I’ve already given up on Tesla. As much as I like my car, after this incredible FSD...

    2021.24.28 Rolling out to MCU1/FSD MS/X

    Just installed 2021.24.28 after checking how things were working beforehand. Nothing changed. Nothing improved, nothing broke, just the same old MCU1 💩💩💩

    I can FULLY control my wipers from the stalk. Some things should NEVER be moved to a touchscreen.

    Home charging advice

    Why not just get an EVSE with a J-plug?? I bought one from Clipper Creek. Don't Teslas still come with the adapter? I almost bought the Tesla EVSE since I thought I would only buy Teslas in the future. But if you deal with Tesla service long enough, your mind might change.

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    The Ford Focus Electric. They started making it in 2011 but it was improved in 2017 and actually became a useful product. It was sort of a compliance/test-bed/concept car. There are many used ones out there and since Ford has very good Battery Management most are in great shape. Perfect around...

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    ???? They are the same age. We bought both of them in 2017. It's a 100D!! It can't be much older. BTW, my problems with Tesla started while my car was still under full warranty.

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    I AGREE that MCU1 is terrible. It should NEVER have been installed in my car since it was already obsolete at the time. When I bought my car Tesla made an explicit promise that my car had "all the hardware necessary" to run FSD when it was ready. In my case Tesla will eventually have to explain...

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    I haven't received an update for my Model S in over a year. My wife has received 2 updates over that time (she drives a Ford EV) and has ordered a hardware update that cost not $2,000, but only $300 with free installation. Does THAT answer your question?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    You meant 2020.48.37.2, 2020.48.37.3, 2020.48.37.4, and 2020.48.37.6 , right?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Because a regional service manager told me so. He wouldn't say why, but we certainly can conjecture a few obvious reasons. (e.g. the situation with the eMMC is so fragile they don't want to brick any cars, or MCU1 can just no longer run the updates, my Nav system barely functions)

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Not sure what you mean here. The fact that cars with MCU1 are not being updated is a choice Tesla made.

    Supercharger vacancies in v4 Tesla app (moved, not removed)

    My fav "addition" to the new app is the window(close) icons that appear when you have windows open. They are there, you can click them, ... but they don't work. So, the writers of the app are into taunting Tesla owners??

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I think the mistake they made was promising FSD would be delivered with the hardware I had when I bought my car. They can't undo that now, all Tesla can do is make good on their obligation, or buy me out.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Then what causes the delays seen in MCU1/AP3 cars? An example being, if a car juts out into an intersection my car will react to that 50 yards or more down the road. If this isn't MCU related, then what is it? And why did Tesla stop updating our cars?? In about 3 months it's going to be a year!!

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Tesla installed the AP3 hardware ( I had AP2 ) but the problem is MCU1 is just not going to support FSD. The web browser and the user manual doesn't work at all anymore. The map loading is very slow. Isn't FSD going to need some MCU powered support to operate safely?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I'm still trying to figure out what Tesla is going to do about cars with MCU1/AP3 who have purchased FSD. At this point I would settle for a full refund w/interest and penalty. I might also be persuaded to accept a heavily discounted MCU2. But the status quo is unacceptable and my patience is...

    WHy would anyone buy a MS Plaid????

    Tesla is so far ahead of the competition that the new Model S can't compete with my 2017. I've got 72 amp AC charging, a beautiful BUILT-IN center screen that looks like it belongs in the car, A STEERING WHEEL, the most awesome sunroof ever offered in a 4 door sedan, free unlimited...

    Autopark is laughable

    I get the "P", ... the car rolls back and forth, makes about 5 tries then gives up. Tesla support says that's "within spec". Everytime this happens i am always able to easily park the car myself. I've still got an MCU 1 with the 8gig eMMC so maybe that's part of the problem since there are a lot...

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    I've been driving the same "test course" near my home since I bought the my S. I run it after every update. The software I had in the summer of 2018 was the best. I could run the entire distance without autopilot disengaging. The current version will try to "center" itself where it thinks the...

    Call your local TV news. Maybe they'll put you on air. Make sure you have a copy of your window sticker. It may be the only way to get Elon's attention.

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    ?? Not 3/4 years ago it wasn't. More like $110,000 after rebates. There were more options back then, and most of us couldn't resist. Also, all this discussion about price; *I* just want Tesla to live up to the terms of their warranty.

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    The hardware that Tesla installed in my new Model S, in 2017, was junk when it was installed. This was a decision Tesla made. (even the MCU2 "upgrade" is certainly not state-of-the-art). Tesla must be held accountable for the decisions they make. BTW, my iPhone 6S Plus (cir. 2015) still works...

    It's obvious that FSD will NOT work properly with MCU1/HW3. Don't be "afraid", demand what you paid for.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    This is yet another reason I won't do the conversion. My current screen is flawless (just lucky I guess?) and I want ot keep it like that. It's becoming increasingly obvious to me that MCU1/HW3 is not a viable FSD platform. So either Tesla will install MCU2 in all FSD cars or buy us out. The...

    I used that SC last summer. I was in a bind, needed to leave town but my Autopilot system died. They gave me a loaner while they sent someone to Austin to pick up the part I needed and had the car back to me in a day. They were great, and I was a walk-in, had no appointment.
