    Sound system lost it's "punch" after latest update

    I'm on 42.4 and still get occasional static problems. Specifically If I listen to talk radio and they play audio of a phone caller on the radio show, the audio of the phone caller will frequently distort into high frequency static/buzzing.

    Hands Up of you bought a Tesla and you don't care about clean air or the 'Telsa Mission'

    "Hands Up if you don't care about clean air?" In other words, how many of you are selfish pricks?

    Silver Plasti Dipped Aeros project on Silver Model 3

    Nice job! I've considered doing this exact project myself. Thanks for sharing how it looks!

    Software Update 8.1 2018.34.1

    I'm gonna start calling these things OTA downgrades instead of OTA updates.

    Traffic aware cruise control - initial set speed?

    Do you see somewhere on the tesla website to report things like this? I don't see any.

    Traffic aware cruise control - initial set speed?

    I just posted this same issue on the model 3 facebook forum. Yeah it's really annoying. You can't set your cruise speed anywhere below the posted speed limit. I was advised to switch from "relative" to "absolute" in the autopilot settings, and that didn't change anything.

    Why do both wheels not work to adjust mirrors?

    Thats actually how it was initially. You're right - much more intuitive and better. Then they screwed it up with a software updates. Im sick of hearing how OTA updates are awesome. They've downgraded more things in my car than they've improved.

    Flooding

    I'd park it on the second level of the nearest parking garage. Even if a flood doesn't kill your car, it aint gonna escape without some damage, even if it's just mold.

    Tesla backing away from "Phone Key as primary key"

    Oh well, since it works for YOU, that's all that matters. All these other people with constant problems must be lying.

    Tesla backing away from "Phone Key as primary key"

    The issues is they can only improve ONE SIDE of the tech, because the other side is a phone which they don't manufacture or control. As long as they use phones as keys, there will be problems for this reason.

    First Road trip with model 3.....really sucks.....

    No that observation is made by many many many other problems that have been created by rushing cars off a new production line. These are not occassional issues, they affect a huge portion of brand new cars. Not charging specifically, but you'd be foolish not to test if before taking a road...

    First Road trip with model 3.....really sucks.....

    Yeah production is still far too sloppy to trust these cars on a road trip without thoroughly checking them out first. I took my first road trip a few weeks ago, but I first went to a supercharger here in town to make sure supercharging worked, because I didn't want to end up in a situation...

    Elon Musk

    In the real world, if black unemployment was at record lows THANKS TO TRUMP, then it wouldn't have started improving YEARS BEFORE TRUMP TOOK OFFICE, would it Einstein? Unless trump was somehow improving black unemployment back when he was laundering money for russians and boning porn stars...

    Elon Musk

    Just like trump, you spout lies as if they're facts. He introduced his campaign by saying mexico was sending rapists and murderers. He was called racist for that, because it was racist, in an attempt to win the approval of racists. Prior to that, he spent years trying to make people think the...

    Elon Musk

    Half right. There is only one reality, and it's not what you hear from the guy who says climate change is a chinese hoax or that he never paid hush money to porn stars.
  16. S

    Elon Musk

    Obviously not. You share trump's relationship with the truth.

    Elon Musk

    That's not hard to prove considering he admitted it on national television. Change the channel.
  18. S

    Elon Musk

    You have been misinformed. It is the president's prerogative to fire whoever he wants, but if he fires them to stop an investigation, that is obstruction of justice and it is a crime. Change the channel and you won't be so misled and misinformed.
  19. S

    Elon Musk

    CNN says nothing of the sort. If CNN was so bad, you wouldnt have to assign false positions to them. CNN says trump doesn't believe in climate change science. That is a fact. CNN says trump appoints professional pollution defenders to be in charge of protecting the environment. That is also...

    New theory - Elon is shorting the stock

    My next theory is that he's too foolishly reckless to run a company in such a precarious position.
  21. S

    New theory - Elon is shorting the stock

    It's the only way to explain his otherwise self destructive behavior. He shorts the stock, acts crazy, calls people pedophiles, makes money. Sadly, this might be the most optimistic interpretation of his recent behavior.
  22. S

    Elon Musk

    Yeah that's why CNN spent years talking about bill clinton's penis. Because they're so anti republican. Telling the country that trump is a lying con man isn't political activism, it's the duty of the free press. It's not an opinion. It's a fact. People need the facts. CNN talks about...

    Elon Musk

    The soviets don't care about the 2nd amendment. They care about harming america. They know the best way to do that is to elect republicans. And the best way to do that is to funnel money to them. And the best way to do that is to use the NRA. Which is exactly what they did. And the NRA is...

    Elon Musk

    If CNN only exists to take down trump, what were they doing for the 30 years before trump came along? The world's most famous liar is telling you not to trust CNN, and you believe him. Yes, it is the responsibility of real journalists everywhere to inform the public if they are considering...

    Did you get EAP? Why or why not? (Poll)

    You're not alone. That's why tesla won't sell it separately. Even though base level nissan and hyundai's now include TACC for free in the base model. Pretty pathetic.

    Did you get EAP? Why or why not? (Poll)

    I got it but I rarely need it. It was great on the one road trip I've taken, but I rarely take road trips. $5k is too expensive for rare usage. I wish you could just buy adaptive cruise control for $1-2k. That would be fair.

    Elon Musk

    CNN is corporate media and protects their sponsors, but that's not the same as being created to misinform people like fox news. False equivalencies are false.

    I think I'm going to turn OFF cabin overheat protection

    It's bizarre that the default setting is ON, which drains lots of power. As if most buyers have either pets or small kids, live in a hot climate, and are stupid enough to forget them in a car. I use this super high tech solution called leaving the windows cracked open an inch.

    Elon is still throwing out pedophile accusations. He has learned nothing.

    This is extremely troubling. Does he really have the same lack of self control as the president? Is his brain fried? I never thought I'd say these words, but I really hope that guy is a pedophile. And elon has evidence. Otherwise he's gone nuts.

    Elon Musk

    You're falling for russian propaganda. The goal of the KGB propaganda technique known as WHATABOUTISM is to make the public give up on trusting anything they hear, tuning out, and letting the authoritarians get away with anything they want. Not all media is corrupt. And certainly not equally...

    Phone as Key Issues

    Because they are attempting to use your phone as your car key without addressing many of the predictable issues this system would create. They'll fix it when they offer the fob. That's the only way to make the entry system fully reliable.

    Should I add EAP before or after I get a VIN?

    Unless you spend a lot of time on long highway drives, or spend a lot of time in traffic james, EAP is overpriced at $5k. I bought it and it was awesome on a road trip I took, but for everyday driving I don't need it at all.

    Tesla Model 3 Is The Most Efficient Electric Car On Highways

    I find it hard to believe that a day's worth of internet connectivity takes as much energy as it requires to move a 4000lb car several miles.

    Blog Report Says Tesla Had to Rework Most Cars in Push to 5,000

    Make that 4301. I need some stuff fixed on mine too. Loose headlight. Loose side mirror. Warped windshield glass. And for some reason the sound system doesn't sound as good as the early build model 3 i rented a few months back.

    Maps, traffic issue

    I've tried that. It doesn't work all the time. Even if it did, it shouldn't be necessary. You shouldn't look at the map and have to double check that it's not lying to you.

    Maps, traffic issue

    Nav traffic problems. My car lead me straight into a traffic jam last night. The highway was green on the map screen, then I turn onto the entrance ramp and low and behold - the highway is a bumper to bumper traffic jam. I zoom the map in and out a little and it refreshes and the whole highway...

    Tesla Service Paint Repair/Repaint Experiences...Please Share

    Welcome to service hell. Which absolutely no one could have predicted, unless they have a functioning brain. Tesla needs to ramp up service about 10x if they're going to put 10x the number of cars on the road.

    Head rests - so narrow and far forward

    The headrests are one of the strangest design decisions in my opinion. They jut forward into your head and are extremely narrow. I think they would be especially annoying for a front seat passenger who wanted to recline and take a nap to balance their head on that 6 inch wide section. I read...

    White seats are too soft

    I like them. I was afraid they'd be too hot in the SoCal summer heat with the car parked in the sun all day, but it's been acceptable. I do have a white car though which might help keep things cooler.

    Issues after one week.

    Yes it's almost the exact same as that. On the model 3 I rented last February, it looked screwed up on the right spoke instead.

    I've never noticed it in any car I've owned, Infiniti, Nissan, Acura, Subaru, or Chevy.

    Phone as Key Issues

    I turned that off completely simply because I don't want to wear out those motors and have to replace them after the warranty ends. I rarely need to shrink my car by 2 inches.

    Issues after one week.

    No, I'm not a troll or a tesla short. I've been enjoying this car since I got it. I just wanted to share my list of problems I've noticed so far for new prospective buyers. I have a white RWD LR with EAP and 18s. VIN around 43000. I was hoping more problems would have been worked out by...

    Phone as Key Issues

    I'm sure there are workarounds, it just seems like things that are "better" or "more convenient" shouldn't also require more workarounds.

    Phone as Key Issues

    A new problem I discovered with the phone key thing is that while washing my car I was constantly wrestling with my car to keep it from locking me out or turning on the stereo and air conditioning. Never had this problem with my "dumber" cars.

    Phantom / Vampire Drain on Model 3

    I just downloaded 28.2 last night and today I'm still losing 2 miles of range PER HOUR. No overheat protection, no tesla apps on phone. This seems to be the energy it must be using to keep the batteries cool or something. That seems excessive doesn't it? This is like an ICE car having a hole...
