    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    The cost savings of having touch screen only (cheap haptic feedback buttons on the yolk save $ not having real stalks, cameras vs real rain sensors, etc) plus Elon's odd thinking that all the cars, regardless of Plaid-ness, should have game console living room feels to them means we get lame...

    Rear Wheel Well Liner

    I'm guessing the softer materials are an effort at sound deadening

    M3 - Bunch of error messages when attempting to start vehicle

    Oh boy, best wishes on this one!

    M3 - Bunch of error messages when attempting to start vehicle

    If the 12v has never been replaced, that seems like an easy first suspect

    Any reason to upgrade 2018 M3 for 2022 M3P?

    I have a 2018 'stealth performance' ie which is something you can't get anymore (Performance w/o the brakes or other small tweaks but with the same motors + software). I tweaked my car with some MPP bits Disregarding that bit, the only thing mine does not have that I might want is a CCS...

    How to perform brake fluid health check?

    You have to pull a cover to see the tank, personally I'd just flush the system but I think the word 'check' here is probably referring to level and color?

    How low are you comfortable going on range estimator on a trip?

    Yeah those numbers are based on when you first do the routing and hide away when the more detailed navigation is shown What I like about the consumption/range app is you can watch use over last 15/30 (and 5?) miles but also see the projected use up to destination and how you are matching, or...

    How low are you comfortable going on range estimator on a trip?

    I am for 10% cause I'm a chicken but have gotten it a little lower once or twice I often put the full screen energy view up and slow down/speed up to try to tune the SOC at arrival. Does V11 have that still?

    Can any shop do wheel alignment

    If toe is out, it might drive straight but increased tire wear can result. Camber as well, look at the edges - inner or outer based on which way it might be wrong :) My 2018 came new imperfectly aligned but many wouldn't have really noticed as it was just a bit but I'm obsessive about stuff...

    How to perform brake fluid health check?

    For the price of brake fluid and friend's time to press the pedal (or a bleeder like above) it was worth it to me to flush out the system. It was at the 3 year mark, the fluid was looking darker vs the near clear new stuff and I felt better about doing the job. Regardless of being an EV it's...

    Are you planning to own post-warranty?

    My Model 3 basic warranty ends Aug 3 2022 with only 43807 miles; my costs so far has been 1 set of replacement tires (luckily new take-offs from a forum member at a good price), some brake fluid (I flushed the system myself end of last year), windshield washer fluid and some wiper blades...

    Is it a problem if my Tesla Wall Connector uses a different wi-fi (wifi) network?

    Can't see why - my car is on a guest network at home - ie the car gets internet access but not the same subnet as the rest of the house
  13. Msjulie

    "Proactive" 12v battery replacement - good idea or overkill?

    I would be surprised if they are really updating the old-school lead acid battery because the new one has unique connectors and a bunch of stuff - but if they really are doing all that for that price, well giddy up ;) Please report back on what really happens

    Auto headlights with wipers function deleted

    Yes I know, but if headlights don't go on that's another menu tap

    Elon stops providing mobile connector/says “you're on your own”

    Of course, just some mind games :) Years back when I lived in a small New England town, the local electric utility had a 15% 'penalty' for 'late' payment but they actually decided they got more people to pay faster when they had a '15% discount' for paying 'early' Elon doesn't give 2 hoots...

    Elon stops providing mobile connector/says “you're on your own”

    Not that Elon or Tesla care, but they could have been hero's had they simply said something like "Save $xxx on your new Tesla by opting out of the mobile connector"

    New Tesla Model 3 extended range locked me out, Tesla refused to help

    You said it right there, engineers are by far not the largest part of the population Do you know Every engineer? :)

    stopping mode randomly changed?

    <mini rant> Software is imperfect and while people are too, paying attention in any car really isn't an option. It's why when Tesla makes controls harder to reach while driving it annoys me so much. You can not rely 100% on the car so don't make the driver less attentive by design! </mini rant>...

    New Tesla Model 3 extended range locked me out, Tesla refused to help

    I have to wonder, does everyone read every manual for everything they own? I guess you do. Not saying OP shouldn't read the manual, that's not the point really - OP wasn't prepared, ok. Let's all just treat people badly when they screw up, that will fix them.

    New Tesla Model 3 extended range locked me out, Tesla refused to help

    Only if previously on, least mine just doesn't spontaneously turn itself on. Realizing the OP is new here (yeah paragraphs are your friend), it's still fair to say Tesla is not really a customer oriented company by design, least in my experience. Customer service no longer returns email and...

    Picked up my Tesla in early December, worst car I've ever owned.

    My car's range is easily impacted by tire pressure, 45 cold is what I use. Stealth Performance (ie 19" wheels+tires). Also for me, 70 is about top speed IFF I care about best range, it drops pretty quick after that (and gets stellar range at 50-60 but can't do that around here) You'll likely...

    Indeed sorry, just part of the V11-made-things-worse-and-hidden-cause-why complaint.

    Auto headlights with wipers function deleted

    I maintain that having to use a menu for heated seats is an unnecessarily less safe way to find the button. It used to be completely visible which is no longer true (I still can't fathom the why of those decisions) Heated seats is just one example which in our household is a priority, I...

    Auto headlights with wipers function deleted

    Yep and I'd go so far as unsafe design (hiding features deep in menus is an easily avoidable driver distraction)

    2022.4 required to maintain AT&T compatibility

    @stopcrazypp If 3G is just needed to wake the car from afar, that's great by me - my car is mostly only alone in the garage connected to wifi. Something I read was the car always tried 3G first but happy to be wrong on that bit (and thanks, I do know 3G proceeded LTE which preceded 5G etc :) )...

    2022.4 required to maintain AT&T compatibility

    Monterey and Santa Clara county Ca must still have 3G or whatever as my car still displays LTE on 2021.40.6 and I am staying off that disaster of V11 for as long as it takes

    Disable opening trunk with external button.

    Maybe wire it so when the trunk opens (you can disable in safe places) that the car blares loud obnoxious music like sentry mode does

    I don't suppose watching for this event and then backing up quick over the thief would be legal...

    Creaking noise from suspension - resolved!

    I'd agree in general but not in this case, my warranty will expire by time vs milage by a long shot. Tesla has a history of front end part issues across various models and this one is well documented on very young cars. Hitting the issue inside warranty vs out in this case is those folks drove...

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    @Edwood Have you tried a 2 finger reset?

    Acceleration boost upgrade, no software update needed?

    Tesla has a lot of service-side config magic, many features of the car are configured remotely like boost mode, pedestrian speaker (if you add one it won't work reliably until enabled), CCS charging (plus the newer hardware charger board) etc. No new firmware needed

    Buying a 2017 Model 3, Several Questions

    To offer a counter viewpoint, 20k miles isn't much so it would be more interesting to know about the battery condition / degradation , how often supercharging that sort of thing. The main warranty is done and some Model 3s had issue with front suspension bits, learn about that and add to...

    Pics please, especially of the plates. Did you happen to take any during install?

    Valve Stem Reapir Kit?

    In the old days we could replace the valve; not sure the Tesla one allows for this: YouTube watch Not sure I'm keen on the part where they drill because the valve was stuck...

    NEMA 14-50 vs 14-30?

    FWIW I did this and bought an eBay sourced 2nd mobile charger for myself and my sister Original mobile connector in the car(s) cause unreasonable paranoia 14/50 outlet added to the garage(s) eBay supplied Model Tesla charger (from S for me, 3 for her) with 14/50 plug end Inexpensive bracket...

    Model X vs Lucid Air Touring?

    The Air and the X are pretty different though as vehicles. The Air looked nice, if they get their software in order and survive production hell, I think a serious contender to Tesla from a driver's perspective

    Still on V10 and LTE connectivity still works.

    Never paid attention before but captured these connectivity indicators at home, a couple miles from home (up hill) and 10-12 miles away from home this afternoon. Yeah, a little obsessed here

    Still on V10 and LTE connectivity still works.

    I thought of that but then I realized it is almost exactly what I've always done BT (before Tesla) on road trips before, though with the added benefit of Apple CarPlay w/Waze and proper hands-free group text etc Though it's nice, I don't really need to do so for just around town but if I want...

    Still on V10 and LTE connectivity still works.

    Perhaps you are right, hopefully not - though when/if that does happen, my phone-as-key-as-hotspot will take over connectivity duties.
  42. Msjulie

    Still on V10 and LTE connectivity still works.

    The more I think about it, and am repeating myself now, I think the warning about 'may' not work was to get folks who didn't want to go to V11 to feel like they had no choice and force them to update From what I've heard, Tesla knows how underwhelmed folks were with V11 (I'm being polite)
  43. Msjulie

    Still on V10 and LTE connectivity still works.

    Just an FYI thread as I much prefer V10 over the V11 UI downgrade; probably just jinxed myself but the car's connectivity seems unchanged and is working as it always did.. I'll report back on this thread if it changes You may not have to go V11 to keep your connectivity!

    Is my car gonna be considered a total loss

    It looks like a taller vehicle it ie perhaps no battery damage; I agree with above, it looks fixable from those pics but also agree with looking into going after the drunk driver for compensation I hope you had a good physical assessment done for you, a hit like that puts a lot of stress on the...

    2022.4 required to maintain AT&T compatibility

    FWIW I still have V10 and still have LTE even in the AT&T weak-zone where we are on Monterey peninsula . Who knows how long it will last but just got back from a 1200+ mile trip in not-so-high tech (ha ha sarcasm) 2017 car with Apple CarPlay. Used Waze (nice!) for navigation the whole time...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    Yes I know, my point was you do not need to get V11 if you wish to use your phone as hotspot ie for me, I do not want V11 even though the fix for 3G decommission is supposedly only in V11 thus my comment about using phone hotspot
  47. Msjulie

    v11 software update SUCKS

    Should be - V10 at least even allows you to keep connected to hotspot while driving which may allow me to avoid V11 longer
  48. Msjulie

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    'Critical' has little to do with it - the touch screen UI was already less safe than real buttons for things people may do frequently during a drive (heated seats on/off, defrost on/off) They have made it more dangerous and just because it's harder to do now doesn't mean people won't still want...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    And/or Elon in his reality distortion field believing, as he has claimed for some years now, that FSD is just around the corner so why do you need driver controls anyway. Not only is that not likely to happen immediately, it's an interesting conflict to the notion of creating driver-focused...

    Tesla played a cruel trick on me

    I wouldn't think so, the line supposedly gets fed the proper parts in the right place so either an F-up or a wise @ss worked
