    Yes. And the horn stutters in a very attention grabbing way. works ok for me. I have same problem. Had the problem on delivery day and documented on delivery, and then submitted a ticket. On the first service visit the estimate said that they would replace the computer to fix this (was an odd...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I enjoy reading @BMW740iL the same way I enjoyed reading and interacting with various TSLAQ crowd on twitter (and the occasional Tesla haters here) — watching and often goading them to confirm their bias, post red herrings, be confronted with facts evidence and logic that caused them to turn...

    "Refreshed" Model S model VIBRATION tracking and information thread!!!

    I found a temporary fix — you just need to think of it as the car is purring, like a contented cat. And feathering the accel pedal between 35 and 45 is like petting it under its chin. My X Plaid now has it too, very mild.

    Accessories for 2021 Refresh Model S Plaid/LR

    I think some do and some don’t. The early ones did not and that’s the one I have. it sucks. dead pedal area isn’t protected from dirt slush and wear. makes the mat useless and need to buy new ones that cover the dead pedal. I think the ones on Tesla website now seem to show coverage of the dead...

    Honest review of the wheel

    I agree and will add that people should just give the yoke time. They may find that it is fine and perhaps they even prefer it. Many people who were attached to the keyboard in their blackberry were violently against a flat screen. They nearly all later found out that they didn’t need a key...

    Yoke Steering

    Update. I recant in full. The yoke is fine and i even prefer it. It just took a while to get used to it and now the ability to push on the corners, levering the wheel around, seems easier for most driving situations..

    It can you just need practice to figure it out and you can pass from hand-to-hand on those occasions when you are turning the wheel more. Or or sometimes especially when parking you might find it convenient to just Palm the whole wheel at the corner This was exactly my big complaint when I was...

    No warranty is fine except for whatever you might screw up in changing the yoke. But I recommend give yourself more than 9 days to get used to it and see the benefits. It's especially helpful if you can exclusively drive the yoke for a few weeks or few months, and then try a wheel and you will...

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    The analogies were carefully chosen. People who claim to not like coffee, or EVs, or now the yoke, just need to be more open in their lives and try new things and give them a chance. Apple didn't give in to early complaints and offer a blackberry keyboard option and they did ok

    Refreshed Tesla Model X issues: frozen camera, brake fault, high voltage system fault, etc.

    datapoint: my refresh Model S that exhibited the same dyno-mode error assortment after backing up after supercharging also had the left camera view blocked on dark rural roads too. The S only has 12.3.2 so still waiting for update. My refresh X has 12.3.3 and never exhibited either problem...

    First post - just received new Model X!

    Mine aren’t pairing either — I’ll look for the link with the magic spells and incantations to get them to pair. For the missing Mobile connector, add it as a service item to log that you didn’t get it for your pre-April 17 order and they should give you one when they get them.

    Does anyone know of the quarter mile time of the Refresh (long range) MX?

    Hmm. I see your point. The test results are for a page labeled 2022 Model X , and it no where says P90D, but the notes at end do refer to max power etx. In addition to the labeling on the page I thought it was right because the 2022 Model S LR is faster than earlier model s performance, so...

    Tesla insurance is now available in Oregon, Virginia and Colorado.

    That's the additional savings each year, not the quote. So for the risk of an additional 4k exposure on deductible I 100% save 1200 each year.

    2022 Model X vs. Model S: Which one?

    Sorry "sleeper" is a fast car that doesn't look like a fast car. It always annoyed me that the performance Model S had to have the spoiler and red calipers that clearly indicate performance version. With the Plaid, the red calipers are thankfully gone, and with the X there is no external...

    2022 Model X vs. Model S: Which one?

    I went back to A Better Route Planner and you are right -- I had ABRP set up wrong -- it was thinking that my old P85DL was new X Plaid. I still don't have it setup perfectly to use my actual car data for the S plaid and X plaid, but just using their generic car info it should only be about 20...

    Does anyone know of the quarter mile time of the Refresh (long range) MX?

    Car and driver found it faster. Tesla marketing desires to show a difference between Plaid and nonPlaid. So non Plaid doesn't get the 1 foot rollout and other shenanigans probably. Better to use actual testing in magazines or on Dragy. Also 0-60 is less meaningful metric and now more a function...

    2022 Model X vs. Model S: Which one?

    How to sell 2022 Model X

    I’ve found in some cases the doors default to not opening fully even when they easily could, so you have to override and force them open. I haven’t yet seen if it remembers consistently to always open fully, or not in the right places all the time. I can see it being a hassle for some. Better...

It did that twice, and each time easily resolved with a two wheel...

    From what you know (sic), is there any difference from these specific ES from a non-ES version? Sometimes ES can be different, and sometimes it isn’t and instead its just a way to produce while waiting for the expected certification. Even a TSLAQ person on twitter points out that this is no...

    Tesla insurance is now available in Oregon, Virginia and Colorado.

    It looks like Tesla insurance in Virginia for 3 Teslas was cheaper than exactly equal coverage from USAA — by about $50 month / 600 year. At least based on the default 90 safety score. An advantage of Tesla insurance though is that you can increase the deductible to $5k (USAA max is only $1k)...

    The Flagship car wash place has locations all over DMV and you can get unlimited car washes at all the locations for ~$30/month. They put a little bar code over your VA inspection sticker and you just drive under a sensor and go through. Have to make sure you know how to put your in neutral.
