    Michelin CrossClimate 2 finally coming to Model Y size

    My follow-up post: 160 miles on the CC2 tires. DFW region, 98-102f ambient, zero wind. Drove every possible road surface, 45-100mph, long interstate sweepers. Challenged the tires a bit, thinking that a bit of wear on the sipes might calm things down a bit. 1) Sidewalls have softened a bit...

    Michelin CrossClimate 2 finally coming to Model Y size

    There are two Michelin CrossClimate2 threads going: Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19" If a moderator wants to try to combine the two threads, we might all benefit I'll add my MYLR experience with the CC2 to this thread: 29k miles.Michelin CrossClimate 2 installed, to replace OEM 255/45...

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    ...continuing to flog the dead horse... I just spoke with my contact at TireRack. The ONLY LRR ALL SEASON tire they market is the ContiProContactRX. That's the only A/S LRR tire currently being manufactured. He said that Pirelli makes a LRR summer tire, but I couldn't find one on the TR site...

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    shzhang: Work your way up the food chain. You're getting bad advice. (I never allow a service technician to dictate when I know I'm right, which is...ahem...ALL OF THE TIME! Speak with a service manager/director.) Did you show them the posts here, and the resolutions achieved? Post a sound...

    Can't jack one corner (battery flex)?

    jcanoe: The usual good advice. I've never needed a breaker bar to loosen lug nuts, until now! 130lb torque is a lot to break loose, plus...ahem...I'm older! HAHA! I would add: a 6 point socket. Greater strength.

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    RNHunt: I was comparing tires on days that were virtually identical for ambient conditions, and the route I drove was a very familiar route. I understand I'm probably overreacting to the efficiency numbers of both sets of tires, since they were new. The biggest problem with the CC2s is the...

    Model y long rang verses performance model y

    Totally subjective. There are DOZENS of threads discussing this...ad nauseum...entertaining reading if you do a search. Regional road surface differences are the biggest issue, IMO. If you've got aging concrete/asphalt, she might not be happy.

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    ...and trying to predict selling price in our current economy (or any economy?) is pointless. Tesla will charge whatever it feels best protects the interests of its investors, not the buyers. Nothing new about that, in any industry.

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    ...beating a dead horse, for sure... I just drove 7 miles, 95f, suburban/highway 50/50. The first mile is all downhill, battery around 40%. My efficiency never got below 360Wh/mi. Previous tires would have settled in around 280 for the identical trip. I'm afraid as MYLR owners put 25-30k...

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    jcanoe: Michelin EnergySaver A/S: Exact same experience that you had, 2018 Fusion. Dangerous traction limits, downright scary at times, and I do NOT abuse tires/cars. Assertive driving, yes, but never abusive. I'm now figuring that maybe it just can't be done. Traction (sticky rubber) increases...

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    Replaced the Michelin CC2 with the the 255/45ZR-19 Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 XL. 150 miles, 80/20 highway/city. 98-102f, wind calm. 44 psi cold, went up to 47psi hot. 70-75mph on the highway segments, some stop-and-go bumper-to-bumper traffic, maybe 6-7 miles. New tires are MUCH...

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    From the photos, showing an unattached clip, I agree with Seminole. If so, the spinning CV joint boot rubbed a hole in the hose. We still don't have enough information. Is the leak coming from a hole in the hose caused by the spinning CV boot, or is it leaking at a clamp/nipple? ARGH! Internet...

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    ...and to add to my "single data point"...the DWS tires I purchased were 6-8 years ago. No doubt they've made some changes. I think tire companies are like mattress manufacturers. There are constant design tweaks at every step, and the consumer never really knows if he/she is getting the...

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    I think we would ALL be surprised by engineering/design compromises that are made in every single product that we purchase. No excuse for the poor "nipple" design. However, it has nothing to do with the leaking hose in this discussion...at least, based on the OP's photos.

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    Another single data point...my experience with DWS, VW Passat, VW Sportwagen...LOVED the tires when new, up intil 20k miles. They became annoyingly loud. Yes, 5k rotations, proper alignment, tire pressure.

    The above video doesn't have anything to do with the OP's situation. Red herring, for sure.

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    sparklehunt: Tesla isn't the only manufacturer with a "cocky" attitude. "Warranty" denial is SOP for the industry, requiring the consumer to push harder than they should have to. Sometimes it just isn't worth the time and effort to argue. ("...honest consumers...?" I almost choked on that one...

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    I just spoke with TireRack. My contact there said this is NOT the first complaint they've received about the noisiness of the CC2...in certain sizes! 60day full value credit (warranty), BUT...customer is required to replace with another Michelin (or Goodrich). The only other Michelin AS tire...

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    How expensive is the repair? Going beyond the principle of the discussion, unless the cost is high, we could end this right here... (Is it my computer screen, or is there damage to the plastic shield???)

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    I TOTALLY agree. What has confused the discussion is the CC2 on our 2019 Avalon Hybrid are super quiet. THAT'S what convinced me to go against my 50 years of driving/tire experience and ignore the obvious...the aggressive tread pattern. That's why I high-lighted my initial post: This may be a...

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    Yoshi10: Unless your "long trips" take you WAY OFF the Interstate network, the battery capacity is NOT a serious limitation. Hundreds (thousands?) of experienced Tesla owners have logged thousands of significant road trip miles. You simply have to change your point of view, from the ICE...

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    Keep in mind: My experience is a single data point. The DFW region is brutal, aged uneven concrete slabs, old exposed (grumbly) aggregate concrete. Every car I've owned while living here shudders at times...Nissan Leaf, 2011 VW GTI, 2014 VW Passat, 2018 Ford Fusion, 2017 Ford CMax. Our 2019...

    Cross Climate 2 on Model Y vs OEM 19"

    Good point, but no. The Contis were wearing perfectly in every dimension, the car was tracking perfectly, zero input required while cruising at 75-80mph. Lifetime Wh/mi is at 284, and as the Contis wore, Wh/mi was improving. Most days, mix of h/c between Fort Worth and Dallas, I've been getting...

    29k miles.Michelin CrossClimate 2 installed, to replace OEM 255/45 - 19" ContiProContact (5/32" tread left, were surprisingly slick on dry pavement...back end would slide out while turning under moderate acceleration). 42psi all around. Only 50 miles, so probably premature to post, but my...

    12 volt battery options

    "Helpful": Do NOT believe a service advisor for any information about corporate decisions that are way above his paygrade. His opinion would be pure speculation. "Helpful": The "private equity firm" isn't producing the batteries. They are simply marketing them. Again, it's SOP in the corporate...

    12 volt battery options

    I'll never understand anyone modifying ANYTHING in the electrical system of any car and then wondering about issues. I've done it, so I know the consequences. It's the simplest "warranty" claim to decline, and you're correct that they probably won't cover it. I wouldn't trust the opinion of ANY...

    12 volt battery options

    Vicj: ZERO batteries are made by "tire companies." Hankook doesn't make batteries. Battery companies make batteries, which are then relabeled with whoever sells them. Wiki: Hankook :"...the company also sells batteries, alloy wheels, and brake pads. This is SOP in many, many industries.

    Model Y New Tires

    At 29k miles, 4/32", my OEM ContiProContacts on the rear like to slide out under moderate acceleration while turning. I'm having the CrossClimate2s installed tomorrow. I don't need such an aggressive tread, but I just installed them (235/45-18) on our 2019 Avalon Hybrid, and they seem to be...

    Should I have service look at this?

    Keep in mind that very, very little oil/hydraulic fluid dripping will look like a lot. That's just the nature of how easily it spreads. I see nothing alarming here. I agree with jcanoe, that it was probably a very small amount of brake fluid or coolant that was spilled during manufacture. Also...

    Random part found near my MYP.

    Feeling even MORE stupid now, because one of your previous posts explained the loss of the plug. Sheesh... Good luck getting this resolved. It...really...isn't...a big deal, is it?

    Random part found near my MYP.

    Stupid me. You don't need to buy one, since you still have it. Are you saying you can't push it in flush? They will charge you for the frunk cowling clips.

    Any mud flaps effectiveness or efficiency tests?

    You can't have it both ways. How much efficiency lost? Probably very, very small amount. The trade-off is obvious. Paint protection.

    Random part found near my MYP.

    POS Tesla. They owe you a new car. They might possibly have them in a bin at the Service Center. Otherwise, they'll order it. You might have to buy a dozen of them...HAHAHA!!! While your asking, ask for a few of the two different clips that secure the cowling over the battery, brake fluid...

    Random part found near my MYP.

    It's a plug from your gasoline tank. Seriously, did you find it inside the car, or outside? I don't know what it is, but a simple search in the vicinity of where you found it might show an opening that needs this plug.

    yoshi10: Welcome to the world of Tesla/EV enthusiasts! Our greeting to you was pretty rough, for sure, but the sentiment is accurate. Range just isn't an issue, once you've adjusted your ICE mindset. It does require a different level of attentiveness. I think this forum is wonderfully broad...

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    Four 1000mile plus road trips here. Perfect road car, especially if traveling solo. 180-210 miles between stops, Pee, 20-25min power nap. I've done this solo, 4 times, arriving reasonably fresh.

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    No answer for this. Speed bumps (which are usually the issue) vary greatly in height. The only correct answer would be...don't install mudflaps.

    Uhh...nope...I went over the car with the detailer, proper lighting from multiple directions, ZERO need for paint correction.
