    A yoke or a joke?

    After having seen the Yoke I would never buy a Tesla without one. I hope it has adaptive steering so that the yoke doesn't turn more then 90 degrees, but I'd only buy that option either way.

    Premium connectivity

    The hotspot option using my iPhone works for me to keep getting Slacker radio. I don't get traffic or satellite maps which is a bit of a nuisance. Not sure it's a nuisance worth $10 per month though.

    Premium Connectivity $9.99/month

    I just got hit with this. I thought I'd try using my iPhone's mobile hotspot feature to give me connectivity while I'm driving, but I have not had any luck connecting to my hotspot. has anyone else been able to do this?

    Scheduled Charging

    Does anyone else find it inconvenient that scheduled charging only specifies the start time of charging? in my neighborhood peak charging hours are 4 to 9 PM, so I schedule my charging to start at 9. But, if I come home at noon and want to quick charge, I need to remember to turn off scheduled...

    Wall Connector Error

    I was able to get an electrician to come out. it was some sort of issue with the circuit breaker.

    Wall Connector Error

    When I plugged in, the light on my Wall Connector unit started flashing red, and the car did not charge. I held the reset button in and now the unit is flashing green but still not charging (should be solid green when not charging, streaming green when charging). The problem is, the manual...

    End of Model S lease questions!!!

    I turned in my lease last September and they didn't even look at it. Way over the mileage allowance, lots of minor blemishes on the bumpers. I thought I was going to get dinged for a few grand but I never heard from them again.

    Help! Frunk won't open

    Good to know, thank you. I brought it in today and it has a bad actuator that needs to be replaced.

    Help! Frunk won't open

    That approach worked for me a couple of times, but not anymore. Pops up about an inch but stays latched.

    It pops up, but the latch is still locked. Any suggestions? I need to get in there.

    200 vs 400amp service

    I was maxed out and it was just a patchwork of add-ons (100 year old house). My pool house was sharing a circuit with my stove, apparently. It cost so much because they had to trench out and dig up part of the street to install a new power line to my panel. I installed solar and my power...

    200 vs 400amp service

    Consider yourself lucky. I am in the process of upgrading my home from 200amp to 400amp, and the total cost will be around $35k. The one nice fringe benefit is that they will be running a 100amp circuit to my wall charger, which currently has a measly 30 amps powering it.

    Navigate on Autopilot

    Mine didn't show up until two days after I installed .42. May still need to download some additional maps items. Give it a day or two, then look under your AP settings to see if the switch is there.

    Where is my NoA?

    Two days after installing .42 my NoA randomly showed up in the Autopilot menu. I wonder if it just requires time for additional downloads before activating?
  17. B

    Where is my NoA?

    That's my issue, I don't have the switch at all. Maybe it's a maps issue, but my car downloaded the last big maps update a few weeks ago.

    Where is my NoA?

    I have AP2.5 and just updated to .42, but I don't see any options for NoA. Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing?

    Exchange/Outlook calendar on iPhone not syncing with car

    Inventory models and huge discounts are back

    Just picked up an inventory P100D. $20k off sticker and looks perfect. The discount has a big effect if you lease, since the residual doesn't change.

    No loaner cars? Really?

    I have one Tesla that cost $150k and another that cost $130k. There are quite a few cars I'd be very happy to drive at that price point that are perfect substitutes for a Tesla. The reality is that when my next lease is up it will be perfect timing to get a Porsche Taycan, so it won't even need...

    No loaner cars? Really?

    Exactly. And to make matters worse after keeping the car for 5 days they didn't even end up doing anything. Apparently having a $130k car where the AC stops working on hot days is perfectly normal.

    No loaner cars? Really?

    Tesla's problems running their business are their own and not their customers. If someone served you a rotten hamburger and said "do you know how much it would cost my shareholders to buy a new fridge? They can't afford that!" you'd probably take your business elsewhere.

    No loaner cars? Really?

    I recently had this same experience at a service center. I had an appointment, and they proactively called a couple of days in advance to say there were no loaners. We rescheduled for the following week when they said loaners would be available for morning appointments. I showed up on the...

    Is my car locked or not??!!

    At my office you're charged 50 cents an hour to charge, so basically nothing, but after 3 hours the cost goes up to $5 per hour. Definitely incentive not to monopolize the charger all day.

    Supercharging at High Altitude

    Supercharging at High Altitude

    My car overheated while supercharging last week. It was a long charge (approx 1.5 hours) at high altitude (7,000 ft). The result was I got an error message that said battery cooling and A/C were affected and to contact Tesla service. The A/C did not work again in the car until it had been parked...

    75D vs 100D Passing Speed

    So if I read that correctly 40mph-70mph is about 2 seconds in the 100D and 3 seconds in the 75D? Pretty fast either way.

    75D vs 100D Passing Speed

    I'm currently driving a P90DL, but the fact that I never actually drive it in Ludicrous mode anymore means it doesn't make sense for me to pay the extra money for the performance model. The 75D has about the same range as my P90DL, which is plenty for me, so I think I'm just going to get that...

    75D vs 100D Passing Speed

    The Tesla configurator shows that the 75D and 100D battery models have virtually the same 0-60 times, but that the 75D has a lower top speed. That doesn't matter to me since I don't plan to go over 140 mph. They only show passing speed times for the P100D. Does anyone know what they are for the...

    Warning before you buy a tesla model S

    For those of you asking why the body shop is holding his car, keep in mind that they're not going to expend money if they're not in physical possession of your car (what's to prevent the owner from not coming back?). Same thing happened to me. Car was drivable after I got hit but needed a rear...

    Model X Ski/Snowbord Rack, awesome

    I need a rack that can hold 5 bikes, so it looks like the tilt is my only option (swing only holds 4). I can comfort myself with the fact that the tilt is considerably lighter despite being less convenient. Does anyone have experience on the Yakima brand Hitch Ski vs the Thule Hitch Ski? The...

    Model X Ski/Snowbord Rack, awesome

    Does anyone have thoughts on using the FullSwing Yakima vs the FullTilt? Can it still be used with the ski rack? I also need a bike and ski setup, but the swing away looks more convenient than the tilt for me.

    Lug Nut Size

    I'm changing the wheels on my MX. They are the standard 20" rims that came with the car. I was told that the lug nut size was 13/16, so I ordered that size socket. It is way too small. Does anyone know what the actual size is?

    What is the website that tells you if you have the new MCU?

    Thank you. That website confirms I have the new MCU, whereas the other one was returning "undefined". I picked up my new Model X yesterday, and was certain it had the new MCU because it was blazingly fast compared to my older Model S.
