    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Don't feed the troll.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I didn't know they brought back the one year connectivity trial. Maybe an Austin model bonus. Wonder what other goodies the car comes with.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Yeah I know the install is not long process. I was told 30 minutes for the Model Y and a little longer for the Model 3. It’s the 5 hour window that Tesla service gives you for the technician to arrive. I’m about 50 miles from the nearest Tesla dealer and was told that techs usually start from...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I don't mind the charge for the Homelink but I wished it was an option you could configure when ordering the car and be preinstalled and ready to go on delivery day. Hate to waste a day off waiting for Tesla mobile service to tear apart the front end of my car to install it. As far as the...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Did your wife's friend have an Ioniq 5 as well? Also what jump box did you buy? Nice to have one for road trips along with an air compressor.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Parts shortages, supply constraints and really long wait times. Also Model Y coming from different plants with different battery cells must be a logistical nightmare waiting for Texas to get production ramped up. It will be interesting to see when the Model Y SR hits the market and how this...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    uhhh nothing to do with a wireless charger cable or build quality but thanks for assuming that. LOL I just didn't think the Model Y was a worth while upgrade I just picked up my Model 3. Oh and its paying off pretty well since I paid $48k for my 2021 Model 3 LR last fall. Its nice to have the...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    You're better off waiting for a Model Y if you can hold off. The current Model Y production is a complete mess. I had an order in for a Y but I canceled. figured id wait for the finished product rather then guessing what parts my vehicle will have and also wanted to wait to see what the Model Y...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Wait until people hear that the upcoming Model Y and Model 3 may soon be getting rear displays like on the Model S and X. Let the HOLDS begin. 😄 Model 3 and Model Y may soon get a rear display for entertainment

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Keep an eye out for the 12 volt battery in the Ioniq 5 for some reason there is a phantom drain that is killing the battery. Hyundai has yet to find the problem and they are just swapping out batteries with new ones in the meantime. Maybe keep a portable jump stater in the car for backup until...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I see you recently joined the forum so you may not know the proper member etiquette would be to follow the truckload of vehicles until it reaches the final destination. Or at the very least place a tracking device on the vehicle carrier.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Would be a terrible excuse of parts shortage since every other EV in the world comes with a Mobile charger. So Tesla is producing cars then all of a sudden they are running out of mobile chargers oh but wait you can buy one for $275 in our shop. Oh sorry they're currently out of stock. Hope you...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Good idea. I just listed mine for $1000 plus shipping. 😂 Brand new never used. Elon knew I would never need it. 😄
  14. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I never use my backseat. I hope Tesla doesn't remove those on upcoming models too.
  15. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Unless those people don't have a wall to put the charger on like condo or apartment dwellers who use outdoor plugs or extension cords. What about when you leave home and need to charge at a friend or family's house? This is a ridiculously cheap move. More ammo for the competition to mock Tesla.
  16. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    True but Elon keeps toying with the idea of opening the supercharger network to non Tesla vehicles. It will generate billions in revenue for Tesla since they will be charging a premium for other EV’s to use Tesla chargers. Hence longer lines for Tesla owners if this becomes reality. Already done...
  17. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Agree, Unless you really need a car ASAP and can get the SR Model Y within a month or two otherwise I'd wait for the LR for the extra $3k as well.
  18. Sludog

    Charge-Up NJ rebate program Phase 2

    yup and the Model 3 SR will only get $2k rebate instead of the $5k most got last year when the car was under $45k
  19. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    There are over 50 ionic 5 in stock within a 60 miles radius near me. Shop around they are everywhere with little $1000 -$1500 or no markups.
  20. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Yup me too but those are they only features thats selling the FSD packages since FSD city streets is trash and years away from being finished.

    FS: Tesla Model Y Reservation White/White $56,440 June 2022

    Wow you don't say. LOL I hope you didn't pay any money for the reservation. I been saying this all along. I contacted three Tesla stores in NJ when someone wanted my Model 3 SR reservation in October and they all said the same thing. Only can be done on delivery day.
  22. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Holds again?? Were there whispers of BBB plan? Or maybe a rumored 9360 cell coming from Fremont. lol
  23. Sludog

    FS: Tesla Model Y Reservation White/White $56,440 June 2022

    Good luck. Let me know how it works out. Lol
  24. Sludog

    FS: Tesla Model Y Reservation White/White $56,440 June 2022

    Reservations cannot be transferred. Only way this can be done is that on delivery day you both need to be present and the car is then transferred over to you once payment has been made. Not sure if financing can be done but cash deal/bank transfer is the best way.
  25. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Exactly my point. Nothing proven on the new cells but yet people have been putting their orders on hold since last year just to get the 4680 cells. 🤷‍♂️
  26. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I agree but lots of buyers tend to want the latest and greatest Tesla has to offer and paying top dollar prices expect nothing less. The new cells have been so hyped up that people think they have superpowers and will make the car fly.
  27. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    This would suck for the people who ordered a $84k loaded Model Y Performance and got 2170 batteries when a newly ordered possible sub $60k Model Y got the fancy new 4680 cells.
  28. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Ryan Shaw had an interesting but probably far fetched theory on the new mysterious Model Y. He thinks that the new rumored lower range Model Y will be the first vehicle produced first with the 4680 batteries packs so Tesla will be able to produce more cars using less 4680 cells.
  29. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Sounds like something a SA would say when they are tired of putting orders on hold once a Fremont vin was issued to someone who is holding out for Austin build.

    Increased Car Prices and $12k FSD...Just Insanity!

    Only 10% off new Tesla owners bought FSD last year and that was only $10k. Now its $12k so I cant imagine adding more customers. In fact I know quite a few owners who had FSD in their previous Tesla and recently upgraded to a new Tesla and did not buy FSD saying it was a waste of money. I would...

    Premium connectivity now only 30 day trial?

    Thanks. I only just noticed this on the final order page yesterday when the price went up.
  32. Sludog

    Premium connectivity now only 30 day trial?

    Sure no problem. Tesla nickel and dime stuff is good for you I guess. Just keep raising the vehicles prices every few months. increase FSD by $2k to $12k for software with zero improvements and remove radar with increased results in phantom braking remove lumbar to save $50 in a motor and...

    Premium connectivity now only 30 day trial?

    Not sure how long this was put in place but I just noticed that the premium connectivity on a new purchase Model Y LR and Performance is now only 30 day free trial instead of the year free trial. The same for the Model 3 as well. Did this just happen with the $1k price increase on 3/10 ? When I...

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    I love how the media is so quick to put the name Tesla in the headlines of a car crash. Any other car crash in the news you will never see the brand of car in the headlines but usually buried in the article. Just like the hundreds of car fires each day you never hear about but if its a Tesla on...
  35. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I figured there would be a another price increase soon but not that much. Although the extra range and 0-60 time may make it worth the extra $30k
  36. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    The guy has a golden ticket to the Wonka factory and he doesn't know it. 🎟️ So it seems that maybe 136 more people have tickets as well unless those previous numbers were all test vehicles or demos cars.
  37. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Guys and gals, lets please keep this thread on course. Any tamales talk should be re directed to the Tesla tamale, burrito and chimichanga thread.

    That dude is one good hacker. First he gets the fake vin number off Tesla. Then he destroys the vin decoder app. :p

    Some 2022 Model Ys shipping with MCU3 (AMD Ryzen)

    Be careful to trust in the SA. They have been wrong or lied to customers many times. If you don’t care about those features then it’s no sweat.

    Some 2022 Model Ys shipping with MCU3 (AMD Ryzen)

    Seems like more people care about the heated wipers more than anything else.

    April 7 2022, about 10 minutes before Elon takes the stage at Giga Austin Fest driving the Cyber Truck towing the new Tesla roadster.

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    You must be mistaken. According to many previous posts phantom braking does not exist. Only a few people have experienced this. 😂 Are you sure you were driving the car correctly? Maybe you were using the autopilot wrong. 👌🏻

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Giga Berlin fest was supposed to get the ball rolling on production but local politics and crooked politicians crushed that dream.

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Yup two lane roads 70 out of 100 mile commute 5 days a week. Day and night cars and no cars oncoming. Much worse at night.
  45. Sludog

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    I send 20-30 phantom brake bug reports to Tesla on my commute each day. My Tesla technician said its the only way to get things resolved and get recalls at Tesla. Techs are powerless because technically Vision camera is still in beta mode and they are still waiting for repair orders.
  46. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I think they're covered because Tesla is waiting certification for sale and those cars could be sitting for awhile. Makes no sense to cover those cars if they are going on transport trucks right away. Unless Tesla starts shipping cars covered like that to prevent transport damage. I mean these...

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Please show your data. I find it hard to believe that many Tesla drivers don't use cruise control (auto pilot) Sounds like an Elon statistic. Just like he said that no one used the lumbar support in the front passenger seat.

    FS: Tesla Model Y Reservation White/White $56,440 June 2022

    This cannot be done. Was willing to give my Model 3 SR reservation to someone last fall but Tesla SA said nope. Only way this can work if the original reservation holder goes through with delivery and goes to store for pick up and the other buyer shows up at delivery day and then papers can be...
  49. Sludog

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Doesn't make any sense that a truckload of "test or certification" vehicles would be in different paint colors and wrapped for transportation? 🤷‍♂️ My guess is demos shown off maybe at local shopping malls.

    Carbon fiber spoiler too. 😆
