    So I decided to get a Tow Hitch...

    I just leave the tow bar in place all the time. Just in case someone gives me a love tap at a stop.

    Holiday Update (2021.44.25.2)- A Big Disappointment

    Im very happy to see some color added. Personally, Im mostly satisfied with the changes. I think there needs to be more customization and more of the shortcuts. I'd like shortcuts for the tire pressure and wipers right in the tray. Things I use far more than arcade or browser apps. The one...

    Keeping Tesla Wifi button in ON position all the time

    Yeah I personally think this is Tesla's way of souring the milk .... otherwise, their programmers have no idea what they're doing. Could be both. LOL

    SiriusXM on Model Y

    So much easier to just use the SXM app and bluetooth

    Dinged door found by Tesla prepping car for delivery

    PDR is fantastic…so long as the paint isn’t damaged, it’s far better than replacing metal.

    Please help me identify Model Y window trim part number...

    Model Y Battery Calibration

    This should be automated by Tesla software.... Seems to me that if 100% = 310 miles / 80% = 260 miles, etc .. . the BMS should compensate or adjust to those corresponding numbers ... of course degradation would have to be accounted for. Which Tesla should have ample data to incorporate.

    All gone! Thanks!

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    Just makes me happy I never bothered to spring for FSD on any of my Teslas .... Technology keeps changing and in the end your current FSD is obsolete in no time.

    Ball Hitch Height for 282TXR

    Some basics ... Trailer should be level. You may need a rise/drop ball mount of whatever to get to level. Brake controller. On 3000lbs you dont need it. The nervous nellies will tell you otherwise, but the car especially with regen will be fine slowing down. In your case .. my opinion is...

    An honest take on Tesla / the Model Y

    Better to reject than to be that guy who bashes for accepting the service center folks "we'll make it right" BS .... Wait a bit, find an inventory car you can inspect and be happy with.

    New Tesla Y defective - what would you do?

    Drive unit replacement is not a big deal.

    What's in your (f/t)runk... RIGHT NOW!

    Nothing ... Same with the amount of dents/creases in my hood. Nothing.

    Pick up MYP tomorrow. Tips to avoid ANY rock chips etc on 170mi drive home?

    It's a magnet BIG TIME .... Stay 100+ ft away from the cars ahead and go at a less busy time.

    12V battery replacement options

    In my experience, my 2012 MS, when the 12V died, so did the car. With my 2016 MS, i got the warning and didn't get scheduled in for 2 weeks with no issue other than warnings ... So, while I can't speak technically, I can say, I never got stranded.
  16. steve841

    12V battery replacement options

    Exactly as noted... warranted repair. it seems they have improved a failing 12v so that the car still runs albeit with perpetual warnings... back in the day, that 12v died and your car was staying wherever it stopped.

    Poorly Designed Induction Wheels

    I've erred before on my Model S. It only took one time to teach me a lesson and that's since 2012. Perfectly fine paying more attention to curbs.

    Updated software and now upgrades are missing

    Yeah... I’d bet on end of quarter specials

    Powerwall Founders Edition

    Long story short, I was gonna buy an extra PW and gateway and use it at my house. Then they came to install and tried to force upsell me 2 additional PWs. I declined the install. So now, my Red Founders Edition Powerwall and gateway are for sale. It's scheduled to arrive on Friday 1/22/21...

    Auto high beam behavior

    You'll notice the icon disappears (disabled) ... So, you have to push the stalk forward again to get the icon back. There was mention this is a bug related to Sentry Mode that remains unresolved.

    Dark mode is my hope.... and definitely customizable screen:D

    Paint scratches, does the Tesla SC do body work?

    If someone shrugged off responsibility of their pets actions, I'd have a police report and saved video and take them to court simply to teach them a lesson even if it was $10.00 The lack of respect for other people's stuff is a giant peeve of mine.

    Frustrated. 2 month old car not drivable

    Dont think it only applies to Tesla .. I came out to my 2020 GMC Denali on Tuesday. Deader than dead. Had to have it towed in. Now past noon on Thursday and they still have not diagnosed it.

    Please help me to understand about Tesla

    A car is just a car. Point a to b. Do you have a home? Is it furnished? Do you have any decorations? Any art? Any improvements? Do you clean it? Why? It’s just a place to sleep. Yet, I'm sure you do. just as some have intense pride in their homes, some people have the same with their cars...

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    I tend to agree... PT Barnum: There's a sucker is born every minute. If you got a refund and reorder when they are actually shipping, good for you. If you paid and decide to wait and hope and get nothing, refer to PT Barnum quote.

    Rear door alignment

    Im in the same boat ... I was hoping to just move the door in by loosening the latch. But, no luck. Almost tempted to pull the latch and grind a mm or two to allow the adjustment.

    My Model Y 20" Induction wheels

    New they are $1000 each for a complete wheel set. I'd say a fair price is $600-700 each wheel set. And, if you want to split them up, I'm interested in one.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    I still follow this thread to see if anyone actually gets a product. Sadly, I can't believe some of you are holding out on their non stop lies about delivery. In may case, as soon as my dispute time limit was close, I canceled and disputed the charge. You can always repurchase when someone...

    MY trailer hitch cover really hard to remove & put in

    The hitch was clearly an afterthought .... Chains will damage the plastic if you are not careful to make sure they are very carefully attached.

    Do you regret paying for Full Self Driving?

    So glad I only popped for acceleration boost ... FSD and even EAP just add stress.
