    2022 Model 3 SR+ fan noise coming from frunk.

    Actually, I've made money doing this. Don't think I can do it anymore, the used car market has stabilized.

    Charge-Up NJ rebate program Phase 2

    For those that are wondering, the date is based on when you ordered NOT when you take delivery. I ordered last year in August, I didn't take delivery until February of this year, still got full 5k instant rebate. GREAT DEAL for a 2022 model 3 for 36k after rebate. Now just need to run the car to...

    2022 Model 3 SR+ fan noise coming from frunk.

    Took the car back on Thursday, Tesla couldn't replicate the fan noise so they blame it on something stuck by the fan. Service tech did try to turn AC and heat on and they work fine, so fingers crossed on nothing wrong. As far as the rear defrost, the whole back window had to be replaced.

    2022 Model 3 SR+ fan noise coming from frunk.

    It's been two days in service, Princeton service center has yet to figure out what's wrong. O, there's another issue with rear defroster not working, so they're taking care of both. This is my 5th Tesla model 3, thanks to crazy used car market, everyone so far has had to be serviced. Love the...

    My windshield wipers are autoing unnecessarily !

    My 2019 and 2021 model 3s which I drove for about 1 year each had occasional wiper activations and goes away immediately. But man, the 2022 tesla DOES NOT STOP. It's acting as if there's a downpour going on.

    My windshield wipers are autoing unnecessarily !

    Good points, auto wiper is required for my car to operate auto pilot or TACC, since it has to *SEE* in order to adjust speed unlike radar equipped cars.

    My windshield wipers are autoing unnecessarily !

    I don't believe radar has anything to do with it. Our problem is tesla *senses* rain and activates wiper when there's NOTHING. Occasional turning on, I get it. But when the wipers are going non-stop when it's bright and sunny.......

    Any chance there was some ice build up as previous post suggested?

    My windshield wipers are autoing unnecessarily !

    Today it got so bad where it was going near full speed wiping the window. I scheduled an appointment to have service look at this. I'm hoping they don't tell me it's a software issue that can be resolved with an update, I have driven 5 different Teslas and never had an issue with windshield...

    My windshield wipers are autoing unnecessarily !

    Add me to the party of windshield wiper coming up uncontrollably. Today in NJ where it's bright and sunny with zero trace of rain drop, the windshield wiper came on frequently as if it's on drugs. Not sure what caused it but like the OP, I had to turn autopilot off in order to stop the wiper...

    New Jersey NJ EV Rebate

    New rebate is currently not available. You'd have to wait 'til probably July as that's when last year's rebate started. Also, it'll be a point of sale reduction and you won't have to file paperwork on your own.

    2022 Model 3 SR+ fan noise coming from frunk.

    I agree, that's why I'm keeping my service appointment . This is my 4th model 3, I upgrade every year thanks to the insane resale value of teslas, never heard anything like it. Sure there are the humming sound, but nothing like the fan sound in the video.

    2022 Model 3 SR+ fan noise coming from frunk.

    See if it's the same sound. It is strange though because I had two 2021 SR+ in the past and a 2022 LR, none of them make this crazy sound.

    2022 Model 3 SR+ fan noise coming from frunk.

    Picked up 2022 RWD model 3 this wednesday, today I noticed a loud continuous clicking sound coming from the front. It sounds like my snowblower engine running. Not sure if it's radiator fan, heat pump or something, it's very strange. I've owned 2019 SR+ and 2021 SR+ in the past, never heard...

    Would you pay more for a used radar M3 versus new vision one?

    I wouldn't, simply because all future improvements will be most likely on vision only. Tesla engineers won't spend more time trying to improve vehicles with old systems. If FSD is going to work, it'll likely work without Radar. The only way anyone should consider old car is if proven that...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Trade in was EASY. They don't check for anything. Just give them the keys, remove your plates and personal belongings, signed title (assuming you're not making payments), and that's it from the trade in side. You still need to complete the paperwork (signatures only). After that it's getting...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    No issues with panel gaps and alignments. Tesla has gone so much better compared to just a year ago. If you never had a Tesla before, it'll likely be the best car you've ever owned. Even the relatively slow Intel Atom is much smoother compared to legacy automaker's outdated screens. You're...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Just took delivery today. Vin# 162###. Unfortunately it's an atom processor. Haven't checked the battery yet. Typical Tesla delivery fashion, In and out in around 45 minutes, it's slower because I had a trade in. Also, the parking lot at Springfield NJ is PACKED. I had to park my trade in...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I wish Tesla would offer a little discount on these chip paint, misalignment and stuff. The way how I drive my Tesla, paint chips are just matter of time. I'm not a big fan of PPF, it just make my car the same as any other car that has PPF on it. Now no other car is going to be able to duplicate...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Check the source code, you may have a vin already. At least that's what happened in my case. You can change financing right before delivery. It's probably best to wait 'til after you see the MVPA. Tesla financing normally approves fairly quickly, don't sweat about financing, I would if you're...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Congrats on the car and welcome to the club. It's HARD to go back to the ancient dealership NONSENSE after you experience the tesla delivery process. No garbage documentation fee, useless nitrogen air that costs 399, deep sanitation cleaning another 499. sigh. My vin is 162XXX, the build date...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I was assigned 155### 2 weeks ago, then 152### this Monday. Who know what my next vin is going to be. But whatever it is, I'm going to have to take it.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    If you're not on hold, then you are what SAs called *eligible* to be matched with a vin. FYI, I was matched with a vin this Monday with EDD 1/26-1/28. I called Tesla back to ask for later delivery time because I need time to get third party finance in place. They released my vin and placed me on...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Did you put the reservation back on hold? If so, don't worry about the new EDD. My EDD is Jan 27-28, but my hold is to be released on the 29th, so clearly I'm not getting the car within this timeframe. Probably system error.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    1/29/22, but with potential east coast storm, it may not happen.
  31. H

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    You're right, it's not 100%. Even in my case, I'm over 90 days now. Like you said, it's more of policy that Tesla wants SAs to follow, but exceptions are possible. 90 days from order date is a good guideline. If anyone's under 90 days, there's very high possibility that the order can be pushed...
  32. H

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    It depends on the 90 day timeline, not number of times you put it on hold. If you are still under 90 days from OD, you can still push it out. I was able to push it 3 times to the current 90 day limit, now I must take my next assigned vin.
  33. H

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    My vin is 162###, I'll report back if I'm the lucky Ryzener or getting intel A-bombed.
  34. H

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Call Tesla now to ask if they know it's Ryzen or not. As long as you're under 90 days from your order date, you can place hold on it. If you wait 'til delivery and reject the car, then you MUST take the next available car assigned to you or your order gets cancelled.
  35. H

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    That's what Tesla advisor said as well, basically let's wait to see what happens. If the storm happens, then all deliveries gets pushed out.
  36. H

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    You're right. My friend placed an order for LR, he has no idea about the chip situation. Since he's coming from an old clunker ICE car, even 2018 model 3 FLIES compared to these ancient artifacts. He's not spoiled like some of us (me guilty) here.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    funny I'm trying to do the same thing. haha. Called Tesla and all they could do is leaving a note for local delivery team that I want to take delivery on Friday instead of Saturday.
  38. H

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yea, I'm past the 90 day window too. The next car assigned to me, I must take it or the order get AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED per advisor.
  39. H

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yea, and it also has 29 miles on it unlike traditional 15 miles. My guess is that it's a rejected car but I wasn't too worried. My teslas in the past have all had some issue that were harmlessly resolved. If they assign me the same car after the hold ends, then I'll take it. It's still heck of...

    Either way takes the same time for DCU, it's just the address will be different. Unless you're going with wire transfer, then that's different. I guess I just want control of having the check in my hands. The processing time from DCU is what's taking the longest, if you call them, you're...

    Just to add another data point here. I've had my mobile charger connected to 14-50 outdoor for more than 2 years now. So far, no issues. Knock on wood of course. There are plenty of 14-50 Nema to J1772 chargers people can buy and leave the mobile charger in the car just in case. Whatever your...

    OK, you got explanation to do. Tell us, who do you know at Tesla that's able to speed up your order like this? Kidding aside, it seems black on white is the next batch to be built that has faster delivery time.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Just got my check from DCU today, delivery is feb 2nd, I couldn't pass up the opportunity of a 2-2-22 date. With that, the name of the new tesla will be QUAD TWOS. Vin is 162###, tesla rep told me it's an intel, but whatever, not going to wait any longer.
