    Diminished value claims around Sacramento, CA region

    So then you have a solid case to support the claim. First you can tell them that after such an extensive repair you don't want to keep the car and when you tried to trade it you found it lost a lot of value because of the accident. If they refuse to pay, ask them to provide you a written refusal...

    Diminished value claims around Sacramento, CA region

    Get couple quotes from Carvana, Vroom, Carmax indicating accident free and next quote with accident. That will give you idea if $26k loss is in line. I feel like $26K is a bit high, but I may be completely wrong. Also I found it is good if you let insurance know right away that you plan to...

    Enhanced Autopilot $6k

    Other companies like Honda, Toyota disengage lane assist when you hit the blinker, as soon as you moved to new lane it engages back on. I would be happy with that, no need for MY to do lane change for me.

    Enhanced Autopilot $6k

    I would probably be somewhat interested in subscription of say $50-100 for Navigating on Autopilot and lane Change. $6k assuming keeping Tesla for 5 years, comes to $100 a month. I use autopilot once or twice a week so say 6-8 times a month. on the trip I would change lanes 3-4 times. So say 30...

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    Spent some quality time with Tone Generator app. That identified some rattle from Sub between 62 and 69Hz. Rode for 15 min at rear seat looking for damn sound. I think I found it. It comes from door panel touching plastic that at the bottom. Look at the video when I press on that plastic to...

    2022 model y rear driver seat rattle

    There is no such latch on Model Y. At least I can't find it.

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    Yeah I saw a post about this issue. When I press outside no sounds. Pretty solid. Also I adjusted 4 stoppers for rear hatch long time ago, they were completely off and hatch was bouncing and making other headache issues. But that is solved.

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    Have to admit I was driving MY for 18K with no major issues or sounds. Now I have 3 different ones: - on really rough road break pedal vibrates and makes metallic sound - Tesla didn't do anything about it, completely ignored - front Passenger seat when no one sits there makes some ticking sound...

    Enhanced Autopilot $6k

    I want lane change and Traffic lights (this one not even an option). But $6k difficult to justify. Especially, after 20k miles MY becoming a big rattle box.

    Used MYLR prices

    look at Tesla site. They sell used ones up to $70k with more miles. Carvana gives $55-65k depending on location. Try Carmax, but they want you to bring it in and will not give you online quote. I think you can easily get $65k.

    2022.16.1.2 update is here

    Took 250 mile trip to NY, and navigation was gong nuts. It wanted me to stop to charge for 10 min but was unable to decide whether I should do it in 170 or 200 miles. So as soon as it finds Supercharger and plans my route it finds another one and recalculates it. And it was switching back and...

    Steering Wheel Bubbling From Heat - Warranty?

    I had 2 bubbles, one on each side of the steering wheel next to scroll wheels. Was a bit annoyed about it. Went to take care of some rattles (not fixed) but got the steering wheel replaced under warranty at 18k. It also fixed my other issue, the horn would work only if you press it on top. With...

    Used Model Y Price Gouging

    There is a buyer for everything! Someone will buy it to save on gas :D Does it make financial sense - NO. Does person have money that depreciate daily - YES. Does person want it now vs Jan 2023 - YES. SOLD! Plus $3k raise justifies it even more. Car was $49k at lowest price point a year and 4...

    No CCS compatibility; legal?

    Different production dates have different components. So some early models may not have a module that enables CCS charging. But I saw a video how person retrofitted it. Another example my model Y doesn't have BIO defense filter or windshield wiper heater element.

    Wh/mi consumption too high?

    Took several long trips. Tend to drive 70-75mph on I-81. That pretty much puts my trip into 330 wh/mi. Then I took same trip in 28 degree weather and Tesla warned me if I drive above 70 mph I will not make it to next supercharger. The whole time MY was trying to warm up battery pack for...

    60k miles, heat pump failure 2020 MYP - Tesla wants $4500

    2007 Toyota Tundra had induction pump issues. Replacing 2 pumps was $4700. Toyota was refusing repair for trucks that were under warranty. That was purely evil. Claim was water in induction pump voided warranty. Later was proven it was Toyota design flaw. Rotors would last 18k miles and warp...

    Same story. DHL Expected delivery May 11th.

    CCS Adapter - ?

    there is buyer for everything. Looks like some will pay $700 more not to deal with international shipping and exposing their Tesla account.
  27. zpaul

    CCS Adapter - ?

    So the price is 299,200 in Korean Won for that adapter which is say about $240USD. You end up paying $274.50 + $5.00 = $279.50 That is about $40 in fees. Anywho that is totally fine with me, since eBay wants $1,500 for that Adapter and Harumio does excellent job (based on forum reviews)...

    Acceleration boost upgrade

    When MY was $50k, and MYP was $60k and wait time was 6 weeks. It made perfect sense to get $2k AB. Now I would just go for MYP, shorter wait time and a decent amount of upgrades for your $$$.

    Tesla Model Y Standard Range AWD to be priced at $59,990 USD

    And it will start probably at $120K since ESQ starts at $102K. By the time you add all the stuff it is easier to by 2 MYs or MS Plaid.

    Tesla Model Y Standard Range AWD to be priced at $59,990 USD

    I owned 2 Hyundais. Agree that their quality may be superior to Tesla and it was better than Toyota, till Toyota got a wake up call recently. But after seeing their issues with 2.0 turbo engines and dealer replacing it for 7 month under “lifetime warranty”. it took 2 months to prove their engine...

    Tesla Model Y Standard Range AWD to be priced at $59,990 USD

    Toyota Bz4x is coming with 250 miles for mid $40k. Though AWD Limited will drop range to 220 miles and price goes up to $49k. So it may be worth extra $10k to get SR+ with 279 miles and other Tesla benefits. If I had to choose KIA, Hyundai, VW, or Toyota, I would get Toyota. Good quality for $$...

    2022MY AWD SR+ with 4680 At Cyber Rodeo

    For some strange reason my Tesla gets hung up on Toyota service location all the time when we drop off or pick up my wife's car. Only reboot saves from that glitch.

    Minimizing Whr/mile

    Wait a second. Then what is the point of Acceleration Boost add on I bought?!?!😂

    Minimizing Whr/mile

    May be you can catch a nice piece of metal - I beam 4 feet long that will destroy your bumper. Caused $1800 repair bill to Highlander. Can only imagine what it would be for Tesla.

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Got 2022.8.2 update and now MY is freaking out and slow neighborhood turns, start beeping and applies corrective steering. Already happened twice in different places. I am sure if I had FSD I would be flagged as dangerous driver. Not sure what it sees now and what freaks it out.

    No Complaints

    1. Buying Tesla is absolutely awesome experience, except for waiting 2. When you eventually drive one you start realizing how complex ICE cars are. In 15k miles I replaced cabin filter and rotated tires. 3. Acceleration is the best, every time puts a grin on my face 4. The only car I bought that...

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    Can't agree more. If I modify a car or a truck to my liking I pretty much know its is sunk cost that I most likely will not recover. When I sold my supercharged Tundra I stripped the truck and sold parts like wheels and exhaust separately. There was no way I was getting anything for that. Just a...

    Greetings for the PNW!

    Just be aware. That nice logo can cause some electrical problems. And Tesla specifically blames those aftermarket projector door lights. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/tesla-claims-warranty-is-void-due-to-aftermarket-puddle-lights.236475/#post-5794537
