    Dangerous Freeway Autopilot Slowdown

    Re-calibration of what? You can re-calibrate the cameras your self, and no one can re-calibrate software parameters other than SW engineers in the next public version. Often, you can predict phantom braking and apply accelerator gently. Also, I noticed, that on my old M3 (with FSD Beta) the...

    Shopping for an ICE for my wife...

    I hear you. Just yesterday, we added a Model Y to our Model 3, and I don't need to drive a 16 mpg outdated SUV to work anymore.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    BMW will cost you about as much as Tesla when you add heated seats and some form of advanced cruise control. Personally, every time I tried a BMW, I didn't like how it drives, even on a German Autobahn. The 3 series also feels tiny, Civic-ish, to me. I was surprised by the size of Tesla Model...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Wasn't Tesla always positioning itself against BMW and MB? Like, M3 was taking customers away from 3-series BMW. I don't really know what you mean by dealership advantage of BMW and MB over Tesla. These days, it isn't hard to find a Tesla SC pretty much anywhere, even in Oklahoma.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Perhaps I misunderstood the context of your statement. Correct me if I am wrong. Yes you can, Tesla and pretty much everyone else will do it just because they can, not because they offer more. Also, gas prices increase NOT because gasoline quality improves.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Then, it will be time for Model Y Standard Range (which is basically here), and for the Cybertruck. I don't expect Tesla going to make cheaper cars until it completely fill up the market for the cars they sell now and for already developed cars like the Cybertruck. Only when the deliveries...

    Delivery question. External Financing.

    I have MY delivery scheduled on Monday next week, but our delivery coordinator went AWOL after basically sending us one message a week ago. I am financing about 75% of the car through BofA. The bank has the VIN number and I have a bank's letter with some reference code and instructions for...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    I don't know what model was that, but most likely not the GT. My Model 3 is too one of the slowest Teslas. Anyway. Regarding anything EV Ford (or GM), I don't trust them. Regarding the dynamics, is the Lightning as fast 50-90 as Tesla? That is of more practical importance for me than 0-60.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    A few days back, a car tried to race me at the light. I let it go first and then floored my car. To my surprise, the competitor was competitive for the first 2 seconds. I later found it was a KIA EV6. BTW, I drive 19 M3 LR on 18" wheels, so maybe in 3 more years or so an average Kia or...

    How to spin your story.

    We can discuss the door handles all day long (see below), but that discussion would only emphasize my point that every story about Tesla no matter how unrelated it is to the Autopilot begins these days with the announcement of the number of Tesla on Autopilot crashing and killing people ...

    How to spin your story.

    At the beginning the talking head says Tesla Autopilot crashes are being investigated. Then, the talking head proceeds to describe that some death of a Tesla driver is blamed at Tesla (of course). And THEN, at the very end, the talking head mentions that by the way investigators don't believe...

    This is how they look on the car ... slightly reminding off-road tires. I will keep posting on my experience with them.

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    "Description of the Cause : The design and part-to-part variation of the high voltage battery main contactor is not robust to the heat generated during DC fast charging and multiple wide open pedal events." How the heck the software update is a fix to an electrical design problem? I don't see...

    New Model Y high pitch whining sound

    FYI, Tesla makes a strong high-pitch grinding sound when pre-conditioning for super-charging, and it's normal. It is related to the coolant flow and the pumps I believe. Just one sound to eliminate from the list of concerns.

    New model y range issues

    I can see only 130 miles between them, not 155. Edit: my bad, it is 155, looked at a wrong supercharger. Really odd you couldn't make it with 80% charge. The reason people around are suspicious is that most of us has routinely driven over 155 miles without even thinking about saving change...

    Could you please name these two superchargers?

    New model y range issues

    You should remember, that the range the car projects is based on normal driving conditions, that is somewhere about 70F and 65mph. Cold affects the range the most. Hot weather is not that bad. I would add some 10% range at 90-100F weather. 75mph will be the main contributor to the lower...

    Rear ended with less than 100miles. Help?

    If looking for making accurate claims beyond the standard insurance DVs, I think it makes sense to go for post-repair appraisal.

    Rear ended with less than 100miles. Help?

    First, it must be the other party fault. Then, you call the insurance company of the party at fault and request they send you information/forms to apply a DV claim. That should be a pretty straightforward process, but my understanding is that without asking the insurance companies will not...

    Rear ended with less than 100miles. Help?

    I've got a diminished value payment from the USAA insurance, no lawyers involved. There is a formula to estimate your DV and insurance companies generally pay close to the estimate (as in my case too). Is the insurance declining DV or you want more than the generally excepted DV estimate...

    BFGoodrich g-force A/S on M3LR

    I haven't seen many (maybe no more than 2) reviews of these tires on M3LR (18"). I have just ordered them at Costco ($788 tax included) as the price difference of $400 vs MXM4 is too much for me to justify the Michelin tires. Am I making a mistake? Any experience with these tires? If not, I...

    Is ford lightening a winner for ford?

    There is quite a difference between 100 kWh and 200 kWh, you know... ;) Also, an electric van on WWII frame truck platform... what can be more effective? (sarcasm) Anyway, Model X is a van of sort, and you can buy it now.

    Really? Is no one talking about the Chevy Bolt?

    News? What news? Ford is found on the road dead - nothing to see. I feel like people who still buy anything Ford these days just deserve to be screwed.

    Tesla in-car navigation and efficency.

    "Tesla needs to..." Tesla doesn't give a s*** about drivers. The only thing that Tesla carries about is $$$. So, suck it up and drive on Google maps. I basically know all the possible routes to my work, and I Tesla only helps me to see major traffic issues to select which way to go. In...

    Map turns black

    I have tried all of what you say. Tesla service canceled request basically telling me to go pound sand. That was a month+ ago. Since then, the map is black 80% of time or more and no updates. Yes, I have restarted the car MANY times. And the car is parked in a home garage every night with...

    Map turns black

    The map is unusable now, almost always black. I have to switch to photo-map view, which is unacceptable. Tesla refused to do anything saying that they are aware of the problem and supposedly someone is working on a fix. This was like a month ago. I had no updates for the past 3 months or...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Can't we just all agree that BMW sucks no matter how their OTA works? If you have $$$ and hate T, get an EQS because BMW sucks and I would suggest Elon buys BMW and closes the brand. They are just a fascist motorbike company afterall. живе вільна Україна

    Map turns black

    The same thing here, even on FSD Beta. I submitted a Service appointment request because of some other issues too. I wonder if they optimize software for new AMD video processor and not for our older Intel processors. Ruby's Driver, what is the chip in your MY, AMD or Intel?

    Model Y AWD description in the source code

    Good question. I have no idea. Also, I couldn't really see the curb weight on Tesla web site other than in some Singapore Manual (which lists 4555 lbs)

    Model Y AWD description in the source code

    MY LR AWD is listed as 4555 lbs curb weight in sources other than Wikipedia. Hard to tell if this curb weight tells us anything as Tesla is not listing curb weight for other modifications.

    Help me decide: Model Y or Mach-E

    How long after getting VIN assigned did you pick up your Y?

    Ordered 10/31/21; EDD was April 22 - May 20. Today I got a message that my VIN was assigned and delivery is 02/22 (today!) to 02/28. (1) I guess, it is a rejected car; (2) not ready until May; (3) trying to make Tesla reschedule back to May.

    Question for all here, what was the time between VIN assignment and the opening of the delivery window? In other words, how many days on average should I expect to have to fix financials, schedules, etc.

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    I ordered (MYLR Red/Black 19" wheels, hitch) on 10/31/21 and the expected delivery was in June at the time of order. Until yesterday the EDD was April 22 - May 20 (though it changed back and forth a few times). Just a few minutes ago, I've got a message that the VIN is assigned...
