    One year ownership update.

    From what I know... radar-based AP still works as long as you have not used FSD. There are two easy ways to tell if your AP is still radar-based: 1) AP works up to 90mph.. 2) Following distance can be set to 1 car length. When you have vision-based AP: 1) AP now works up to 85mph (which just...

    One year ownership update.

    This is the main reason I've never tried the $199/monthly subscription to FSD. I'd love to give the beta a try and am pretty sure I could get a 96 or higher score. But I don't want to lose the radar-based AP on my 15-month-old Model Y. I've heard once FSD is activated on a radar AP Tesla...

    2022.20 Enables Green Light Chime Without EAP/FSD!

    Give it about a week or two. I find the updates hit my 2021 Y about 10 days after they were initially released. Since this update was first noticed on 7/2.. I'd expect to get it around the middle of next week.

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    That is incredible! I'd love to see A:B comparison with the 2170 built cars.

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I disclosed the dent when the original quote was issued. Where did you read that I had not disclosed it? Or did you just make that up? I didn't fix it, because there was no need for me to fix it. Which was verified when the Honda dealer bought the vehicle.. with the dent.. that I physically...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    There's no debate Tesla's online purchasing system is much easier. The most satisfying part of purchasing at Tesla was actually the delivery experience. I felt no rush to take delivery last year. It was just me & the car in the parking lot at 8 am. The service center didn't even open until...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I certainly appreciate the helpful answer, but I must point out that I purchased my Y way back in March of 2021. So there was no long waiting queue like there is now. Even the website quoted a new custom order as delivered in 2-3 weeks. Actually, when I purchased my car Tesla had an...

    No camping in your car.

    I agree to a certain point. I certainly prefer a comfortable mattress, tv + remote, chair/couch, and a hot shower over ever sleeping in my car for any reason. That said I can think of a few occasions where I would give a try. Primarily on an extremely long-distance trip where I'm still in...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    This. Plus the ease of a one-stop transaction is why most people tend to trade in their vehicle when buying a new one. Even now if I were to trade my Y for another vehicle... I would get credited at least $3,600 sales tax on my next purchase in the state of MD. That means any competing...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    If an hour search on the internet means saving thousands of dollars.. I will do it every time. Maybe your time is worth significantly more than your money, But I save a significant amount every time. Same way I would google search for the lowest price on most products.. before I click the buy...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Again where is this written? Where can I go to find out "Tesla doesn't want your old ICE vehicle". Can you show me that on Tesla.com? Furthermore, my biggest issue wasn't the lowball offer.. its was that they lowered the offer at the last minute. They did not honor the price they...
  12. D

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I never said it was horrific. I said they gave me an even lower offer (by about $2,000) than what they originally quoted. Next time before you rush so quickly to downvote my post.. take some time to actually read what I wrote. Its important to do that if we are going to have an honest...

    First Road Trip ABRP or Tesla Nav

    I generally use both.. but trust ABRP's prediction more. The longer the trip, the more I depend on ABRP. I find that ABRP gives me the fastest travel instructions. Essentially ABRP tells me to stop to charge more often, but for significantly shorter durations. For example, on a 300-mile...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I've never had this horrific experience at a dealership. Maybe some people do not like negotiating, but I look at it for what it is.. a transaction, nothing more, nothing less. They are trying to make as much profit on each sale.. I am trying to pay the lowest price on every car I purchase...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    You joke.. but that's probably good advice. Mine was built in February and it's pretty much perfect. I spent a good 2hours overlooking everything before actually clicking accept on delivery and the best I could come up with was an interior panel in the hatch area that wasn't perfectly lined up.

    Horrible 2022 Model Y Tesla Experience

    I 1000% agree the car should be delivered clean and spotless, especially for a company that is raking in a whopping 30% margin on every vehicle they sell. If a random corner lot car wash can figure out how to hire a bunch of minimum wage labor to properly wash/detail vehicles and have them...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    This is awesome news. I've always been interested in an Austin built car. Mainly for the supposedly better paint. Has anybody done paint thickness & quality comparisons? Hopefully, Austin building MYLR's now means with two factories cranking out the most popular version of the Model Y...

    Problem with WIFI

    I just got 2022.16.2 yesterday.. but seems mine was fixed with 2022.16.1.2 which came a week ago. Seems like everything working again now.. dashcam.. wifi.. and of course software updates (checking & downloading)
  19. D

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I think its simpler than that. It was either a mistake and they never meant to offer it.. or the description was wrong. Its essentially copy/pasted from the MYLR as it clearly said reduces 0-60 from 4.8 to 4.2 seconds. The MYSR AWD only advertises 0-60 in 5.0 If they are truly going to...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    People are clueless when it comes to charging etiquette in general. One of the reasons for buying the CCS adapter is I'm so tired of someone pulling into the charging space that's shared with me at a V2 Supercharger. The first few times it's like okay that sucks. Now I'm at the point where...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I got $20 that says this will end up being an MYSR AWD if its coming out of Austin.. any takers? lol FYI.. MYSR AWD are actually showing up in Tesla Inventory now. For delivery in the Miami area only

    MYP Delivery Still With Summer Tires?

    Totally agreed. If anything the service center should stock wheels/tires already mounted for this exact purpose. Makes even more sense when you consider they sell a winter wheel/tire package!

    Problem with WIFI

    So I got 2022.16.1.2 yesterday and it appears to have solved the wifi issue. Atleast so far. Noticed wifi immediately connecting the last few times I've been in the car. Dashcam is working again too.. but again we are talking about getting in the car maybe 3x over the past 24 hours. Will...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Oh I certainly agree. Tesla has done a tremendous job at revolutionizing the auto industry and passenger car travel as we know it. That said they are far from perfect, have had incredible luck due to the timing of literally record-high gas prices and consumer spending, and are still lacking...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    And Tesla is selling these units at MSRP. Its not they are taking a loss by having to pay a middle man. IF we are aware of such an easy way to get these adapters, surely Tesla INC is aware. My guess is they are fine with this 'loophole' as for right now it benefits both the corporation and...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Click on his picture. Its literally a Tesla connector.. but limited to 50kW. I believe these used to be Chademo and once Nissan gave up on it. They switched them over to Tesla.

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Oh I'm sure. For people who don't understand just how expensive 58 cents is.. a Model S has a 100kWh battery pack. It will cost you $58.. that FIFTY-EIGHT dollars to completely fill the battery on the Model S or X.. during the day in California. Hell, my old 2018 CRV would take 12 gallons to...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Yep. My bad. I actually should have replied to the other guy instead of you! lol The CCS adapter unlocks free charging for me, via my wife's EA account. So I plan to pretty much never use another Supercharger until her free charging status expires.. or EA blocks my vehicle.

    CCS Adapter - ?

    The entire point of getting the adapter is "more charging options". As the guy who made the video pointed out, cheaper charging is just one of those options. Nobody is saying that CCS is ALWAYS cheaper than Supercharger. That said as Supercharging continues to get increasingly more...

    Another price increase

    And you didnt mention interest rates. Mortgages are already back to almost 6%. Not sure what car loans are.. but Im guessing between 3-4%. Nothing about this feels comfortable. Just feels like the entire bottom is going to fall out any day and every number will be somewhat meaningless.

    Another price increase

    So jealous. I want the MYP so bad. But I agree there is no way Im paying $70K for a basic one with no options. Hell I couldn't even pull the trigger at $68K + options. By the time I add in everything I wante (red paint, white interior, tow hitch).. that car was already $80K OTD. Now its...

    Problem with WIFI

    Mine refuses to even check for a software update anymore. Regardless of what internet connection I have.. its stuck saying last check was performed on June 8th @ 8:40am. Going to reach out to Tesla service.

    Nope. Checked yesterday and today. Still last check performed June 8th @ 8:40am. Going to reach out to Tesla service.

    You will love it! Literally, the only regret I have.. is not doing it sooner! Well and not going for the Performance version lol

    Ooo let me run and check my car. Checked it this morning and it was still the same thing.. showed the time it actually checked for an update was Jun 8th @ 8:40am. Now a full week ago :(

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Oh don't feel bad. My eyes work perfectly fine (thanks to contacts) and I've backed in too far a couple of times.. so much that I hit something with my hatchback when trying to open it while charging lol. If I had to guess those Supercharging cables are only about 6ft long. So you figure if...

    1 click away from ordering model Y

    Personally, the prices right now are too crazy for me to buy another one.. that said if you are going to get it.. spend the extra on the red paint and white interior. No offense to anyone here.. but the black interior is flat-out boring. All of us have ridden thousands of miles in a car with...
  38. D

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Im guessing they will switch to dual cords in the US for another reason: The Supercharger cable is incredibly short. Like you need to make sure you are backed pretty freaking well into that parking space for it to reach. Most EV's are built with the charge port at the front or rear corner...

    Factory software

    FYI.. Would also like to point out that something is going on with OTA software updates. My vehicle now sporadically checks for a new update, even when manually prompted to do so by clicking on the software tab of the control center app on the factory 15" touchscreen. It last checked for an...

    Model Y LR reservation for Sale. Save $500!

    The market for CA.. is quite different than the market for VA. You also have to figure in taking delivery means $55K +$1250 delivery +$250 documentation +sales taxes +registration & tags +additional personal property taxes in VA (extra 3.5% annually). So the take-home on this car is about...

    20x10" squared setup with 275/40 tires.. wh/mi expectations?

    Thats actually a pretty awesome option. I imagine this is the ultimate solution for comfort + range + reliability. Generally speaking the more sidewall.. the less issues you will have with the tire.

    20x10" squared setup with 275/40 tires.. wh/mi expectations?

    Thats pretty damn impressive. Thank you guys for providing real numbers from your recent trips. God its so refreshing to see someone reply with information that was asked for.. instead on another mission to be another internet know-it-all.

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Still significantly cheaper than the $0.58 per kWh.. which is now the daytime Supercharger rate in CA. https://www.teslaoracle.com/2022/05/15/tesla-owners-in-california-uneasy-as-supercharging-costs-are-on-the-constant-rise/ And if you use it often.. pay $4 a month for the membership plan...

    Problem with WIFI

    Thank you for posting this!! I have been going nuts trying to fix the wifi signal in my garage because I thought it was my system. I run a pretty complicated wifi setup.. using all Ubiquiti Unifi equipment.. so I have 4 access points around my house (upstairs, downstairs, basement, and...

    Elon: Working on Tesla NA Service. Goal of having 2/3 of cars have same day service w/ no wait.

    Agreed. I'll believe it when I see it. He literally just posted on Friday that he was slashing Tesla's workforce by 10%.. or about 10,000 employees. This dude changes his stance more than the weather forecast.. and I have no doubt this latest post is because the stock price dropped by 10% on...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    I actually agree with you. Well to a certain degree. There should be nobody buying a $70K Tesla.. who is dependent on free charging. If you can afford to spend that much money on a single-vehicle.. then you can afford to spend a few dollars to keep it charged. I'd feel the same way about...
  48. D

    CCS Adapter - ?

    That's exactly the type of free CCS charger I'm seeing in several places.. including car dealerships, shopping centers and even some gas stations. I recently found a Royal Farms gas station about 15 miles from me that has a free 50kW CCS charger that looks exactly like this. You figure...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    The dealership is private property, so I can't possibly speak for exactly what charging rules they allow. That said pretty much every dealer-based CCS charger I have clicked on in Plugshare.. has comments from random people about how happy they were to charge to their Bolt, Mach-E, ID.4 etc on...
