    HV Battery replaced and now the Drive Unit! (out of warranty)

    Slightly off main topic, but my 12/2016 S90D gave me “replace battery” proactive warning on my app on 11/2021 (5 years of service) so I scheduled amd drove to the Service Center where they replaced it. No problems since then as expected. For me, just waiting for the alert then promptly getting...

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    Yeah…. Purchased FSD in late 2016. Paid for MCU2 update over a year ago. Keep requesting camera upgrades im the app, then service center cancels. WTF Tesla???????

    Have you received FSD you paid for?

    Wait…..you can’t even get the beta unless you purchased FSD! What do you mean “not sold”?? Are you claiming some people get to test FSD without having purchased it???

    Is Tesla still giving out the FSD beta to qualified drivers?

    Yeah, that why he named it “Fool Self Driving”

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    Tesla.... Tesla.... Tesla! Shame on you for such short sighted business practices. (Speaking as a customer since 2012). I highly doubt I will EVER buy another vehicle from you due to the multiple years of broken promises. Yes I like the vehicles (2012 Sig85 and 2016 S90D) but you have...

    Mobile Connector no longer included with new cars [posted 04/16/2022 - Tesla confirms adapter included with cars ordered before 04/17/22]

    Hey Elon, it’s used rarely but is VITAL when you are low on energy with an overnight near a 120V outlet, like at a vacation cabin or visiting a friend overnight. This just seems cheap and the inconvenience will bite sooner or later.

    Homelink module: garage door closed on the car

    Wow, if only the car had cameras that could see forward and rearward to use AI to verify the garage door was closed or open before triggering it…. Tesla, do this and go ahead and patent the idea. I give it to you. Just please STOP trying to close my door on the car while backing out!

    Why electric vehicles are a bad investment

    I remember so fondly that speedometer from my 2012 Sig85. Would LOVE to have that classic interface again as an option today! Please Elon, I would gladly pay $69 for it……

    At Home Charging costs vs. Superchargers

    If you charge at home (at all) the TOU schedule will let you set your car to only charge if 1) it’s plugged in and 2) it waits until the schedule you program is at the lowest cost. Once setup it’s a great cost reducer without having to overthink when you plug in. I think it’s brilliant.

    FSD in older models

    I’m that year range, only late 2016 forward can, and with several caveats. It will need the MCU2 update and all cameras all replaced, at minimum.

    FSD opt-in... now what?

    You would not be completely wrong to say this. For example I have a 2016 with FSD and safety score in the high 90's...... BUT my cameras need updating and that only happens when you get "invited" to have it done. WTF else am I supposed to do?????? Very frustrating! Early customers (hey I...

    Full Self Driving Capability - Not having full self driving?

    HW3 upgrade has been easy to get for the past year (IMO) *but* camera upgrades (the missing piece to be able to activate FSD) are in short supply (or some similar excuse they give me) and I have to be "invited" for the upgrade.

    2016 Model S purchased with FSD get free camera upgrades?

    Update: NOPE the “recall” service consisted of opening then slamming the fronk closed and verifying it latched. THAT WAS IT! No tire pressure check, etc. I asked if he was going to replace cameras as I requested, he said “no you have to be invited first” and left.

    Complimentary camera upgrade

    Did you do anything to ”request” the camera update? Seriously, I don’t get the process service expects us to follow. Scheduling mobile service for a recall item, and adding ”replace cameras for FSD” got me “you need to be invited first”. Do you first request FSD beta, then wait to get...

    Camera upgrades

    Des anyone know if you must maintain the stupid score… oops safety score until you magically get invited for camera updates? I had a mobile service visit recently for the hood latch recall, and had added “update cameras for FSD” but they deleted that item and said “yu have to be invited for new...

    POLL: FSD Camera Retrofit Status

    Does anyone have any knowledge if we must maintain high SS while waiting to be invited for camera updates?

    $12K for FSD is insane

    FWIW my wife has a 2015 Lexus RX350 with Mobileye (probably version 1) and in 50k miles of driving has NEVER given a false FCW (and it has given a few genuine warnings). So MobilEye has something going for them!

    2016 Model S purchased with FSD get free camera upgrades?

    You can start by initiating a mobile service request for camera replacements. I was able to add that to my upcoming warranty recall (hood latch) and they added it (after two rounds of back and forth). Hopefully they actually DO it on Tuesday!!

    Radar Removed from Model S now too...

    I fondly recall driving I5 from CA northern border to Portland when about half way there encountered truly thick dense fog that brought visibility to about 1/8 mile or even less, and I had recently received the update where radar first ”showed” the car in front of the car in front of me. I was...

    Radar Removed from Model S now too...

    Wait a minute! I remember receiving this update that used radar to see vehicles ahead of the one immediately in front of me by bouncing radar under the first vehicle. It was AMAZING to see good depictions of multiple cars in front of mine. Is this going way with vision only...

    Charge Stats in phone app -- does the car use anything from there to determine off-peak hours for scheduled charging?

    Took a while (maybe even waited for a new month). Now my app now reports correct stats (with nice details shown) that subtotals off peak and on peak energy used for charging, and correctly accounts for on peak/off peak/weekend rates. Nice job Tesla!!!

    I too am awaiting camera update for my late 2016 S. Finally when the SvC scheduled me for the mobile hood latch recall, I went back and forth three times via the mobile app, adding “replace cameras for FSD”. Finally they added it to the service ticket! But now it’s not scheduled to be done...

    The unofficial "when do I get my FSD beta update" FAQ

    Hahahahahana…. NOPE. -signed- paid in full for FSD in 2016 and not even invited for camera upgrade, with 98 safety score.
  47. pilotSteve

    Camera upgrade required before FSD for 2016 MS

    Please clarify: do you need safety score of 99/100 in order to get the invite to have cameras upgraded, or can you just schedule it with a service center ?
  48. pilotSteve

    Those who reset score - how soon after reaching 99/100 (100+ miles) did you receive FSD Beta?

    We live in a town with traffic circles (roundabouts) every few miles, so all my drives pretty much require driving through them. Posted speed is 45mph which is always exceeded. So there is no way to stay safe and keep the daily driving score game above 85. Beyond frustrating!
