    Shopping for an ICE for my wife...

    Last figures I saw about 40% of the new ICE cars on the market come without a spare tire. A spare tire reduces gas mileage/electric range and takes up space.

    Uncomfortable driver seat?

    6’2” 185 lbs with severe neck and back problems, I find the drivers seat more comfortable and less fatiguing than the 22 way comfort seat in my Beemer. Fremont car.

    I noticed it now responds to "Show Tire Pressure." That's new.

    Is FSD worth it $10k? ( Any insight from Beta users)

    The woman cut from the far right lane across three lanes of traffic at a speed exceeding 100 mph to try to get around my left when I was moving into the left lane to overtake the vehicle in front of me. I had JUST checked the rear view and side mirrors, nobody close, was clear for the pass, her...

    Is FSD worth it $10k? ( Any insight from Beta users)

    It's 85 mph now, and will hit 90 as soon as Tesla is comfortable with its performance at speed.

    Is FSD worth it $10k? ( Any insight from Beta users)

    FSD is one of the primary reasons I bought the Model Y. This could easily be my last car, and as I get older and more dotty and less able to pay attention and react quickly, the car will take care of me. I bought it in 06/2020 and it was, IIRC, $4k. It jumped to $6k a week after I took delivery...

    Phone Voice Commands

    Alternatively, the programmers at Tesla may feel FSD is more important and therefore gets the attention. >>Use to be I could say "call Joe mobile" and it would call the cell phone of Joe like it should do and the way siri works also. Now I get, Joe and then a list of mobile, work or home which...

    Rear ended with less than 100miles. Help?

    Yeah,,that’s amazingly cheap labor. Plumbers and electricians charge way more than that around here. And I’m not in California.

    No CCS compatibility; legal?

    You’d have no legal recourse at all. Your recourse would be to purchase a vehicle that has the items you want from another manufacturer.
  13. laservet

    No CCS compatibility; legal?

    I can’t answer for Tesla, but I would imagine since consistency is the opposite of innovation and change they wouldn’t find it desirable. So it’s not a problem for them. If one wants a car that is identical in every way to every other car that rolls off the assembly line this year, all of the...

    No CCS compatibility; legal?

    It’s part of Tesla's Agile production method. Legacy automakers use the Toyota Production System. It replaced the Ford production system for many reasons, the most important was to increase consistency. The Ford production method had workers on an assembly line each doing their thing, and an...

    Vendor Washer fluid recommendations for summer

    From the Model Y Owner’s Manual: CAUTION Do not add formulated washer fluids that contain water repellent or bug wash. These fluids can cause streaking, smearing, and squeaking or other noises.

    Anyone had the roof tinted?

    Does Model Y Roof have UV protection?
  17. laservet

    Anyone had the roof tinted?

    Glass that passes light in the visible spectrum cuts out almost all UV light extremely effectively, any extra UV reduction by film is superfluous. I measured zero with a UV meter through the roof glass.

    Cabin overheat protection no longer working

    It's working just fine for me, I had it set to use the AC and it keeps it just under 100 degrees in the hot sun. Edit: MY 2020, LR, DM 2022.4.5.21

    Samsung T7 SSD vs high endurance class 10 Micro SD card

    This card is made for purpose and is good for up to 16 years of continuous recording. Of course, "up to" is like "virtually waterproof." These new Samsung microSD cards support up to 16 years of continuous recording | ZDNet

    Samsung T7 SSD vs high endurance class 10 Micro SD card

    I have portable SSDs, too, love them. The 1 tb Sandisk card, which I had reformatted on two different desktops and one laptop to no avail, works fine in a DSLR. Maybe time to try it again in the Tesla, see if the intervening updates have made a difference.

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    Installing 2022.4.5.21 now, will be interesting.

    Why does Tesla suspension suck so bad?

    My MY with 19" wheels is quite a bit less harsh than my BMW with sport suspension. That car beat me up on a drive, the Y doesn't.

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    They have a lot on their plates, much of it far more important than the auto headlights. That doesn't mean they think it works fine, that's a real reach on your part. When you buy a Tesla, patience is a virtue.

    Good point. Model Y DM LR 06/2020 2021.44.30.21.

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    I don't drive much on two lane roads, but I did yesterday and I see what others are experiencing. I was in my neighborhood on a two lane well marked road and a pickup truck came around a bend in the road about 150 feet ahead of me. We were both going about 25mph, both were in our lanes and not...

    Model Y repair horror story

    Delays like this are very common these days with any luxury brand. A friend just waited 3 months for parts for his Infinity, another waited longer for parts for her Mercedes. When I bought my Y back in 6/2020 I made sure to get extended rental coverage (doubled the rental allowance for a few...

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    The i4 has a substantial center tunnel and a cramped rear seat area. The iX is on their new dedicated EV platform. Both have the amazingly ugly huge kidney grilles. Yuck!

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    Too many compromises when retrofitting an electric drive to an ICE platform. BMW's current line is hideous IMO, that monkey-buttface look is awful. I watched an interview with the designer of the X5 and he was extremely critical, too many different lines going nowhere in the front, kidneys too...

    Where did the "fold mirrors when doors are locked" selection go?

    Found it, under the adjust mirrors page, not under the fold/unfold mirrors button. Thanks!

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    Another Tesla for me. Having come from the BMW world owning everything from a 3 convertible to an X5 to a 7 series, the absolutely last thing in the world I would want is to deal with a crooked BMW dealer like I have had to do for several decades. The cars aren't worth it. Isn't the i4 just an...
  33. laservet

    Where did the "fold mirrors when doors are locked" selection go?

    No, just fold/unfold, but when you fold it asks if you want to save that location. Not too helpful for me since I want them to fold everywhere but my home. I’ll look again just in case it has moved (couldn’t find it under Lock, either).

    Wife isn’t happy with MY (have 2), what options?

    Yeah, hard to pass up an opportunity like this!
  35. laservet

    Where did the "fold mirrors when doors are locked" selection go?

    At one point there was a selection to have the mirrors autofold whenever the car was locked. I'm on 2021.44.30.21 now and can't find it anywhere. All I can find is the Fold Mirrors command which then asks if I want it to be linked to my current location. That's not bad, but I want what it used...

    Uncomfortable driver seat?

    I traded in a BMW with the 22-way comfort seats and I have found that I am much more comfortable and refreshed after a long drive in my Y than I was in the Beemer. I'm 6'2" and have horrible back and neck spinal problems so a comfortable seat is critical for me. I initially thought I would miss...

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Nice thing about it is that they are constantly improving the software, so eventually all the current issues will go away. Takes a bit of patience, but what they are trying to accomplish is very, very difficult and will take time.

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Another ten days along, still not a single phantom braking event. From 2 to 4 per day to zero, sweet!

    Water in Frunk after touchless car wash

    I can wash mine without directly aiming the water stream at the seals. A touchless carwash can't do that.

    Water in Frunk after touchless car wash

    Owner’s Manual says, “CAUTION. Do not aim water hoses directly at windows, door, or hood seals...”

    Bad speed limit sign recognition

    Update. With 2021.44.30.21 the car slows down to an appropriate speed at interstate exits where it used to fly into them at high speed. Much better. The display still doesn't show the exit speed limit, still shows 65 or 70 from the interstate, but it is dramatically improved.

    Where to tint ?

    The glass itself blocks UV extremely well, no need for any additional blocking, that's just advertising hype for a superfluous characteristic.

    Is Phantom Braking Still a Problem?

    It’s the next to the latest version with FSD. The latest, 2022.4.5.15, includes an update of FSD from 10.10.2 to 10.11. TeslaFi shows a small number of installs on March 14 tapering quickly to zero. Maybe found some bugs needed squashing.

    What's everyone's electricity bill increase to/by?

    That’s how I do it, I average ~ 1k miles per month, $31 per month in electric costs.

    Is Phantom Braking Still a Problem?

    I had serious problems with pb, happened at least twice daily, but after upgrading to 2021.44.30.21 the pb completely disappeared. Weeks now, and zero events.

    Can't Send Text With Voice Commands

    Hmm... Some days texting works, some days it doesn't and gives me the "you need iOS x or Android X to use texting" message, my version of Android is the latest, all permissions granted. Some days it works perfectly, some days not at all.

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Another two weeks, still not a single case of phantom braking. Impressive, went from at least one event on my way to work and at least one on my way home (sometimes two or three events) every single day to zero. The other thing that has disappeared is there was a certain spot on the interstate...
