    MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade - technician skipped screen replacement

    Are you 100% sure it was not replaced? 2017 models were still carrying dual-computers for each of the screens if I am not mistaken. I have an appointment soon for a late 2017 100D (but Model X) and I was told IC screen will also be replaced.

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    I love all the software updates but supercharging capped at 60ish kW is the biggest injustice I’ve experienced with any product. And I have barely used their free supercharging network in 5 years!! Makes my blood boil to see how slow it charges. No road trips in my 2015 car.

    Tow Hitch now available on configurator

    I got my Model X towing package installed after delivery (because it was in the order but missing in the delivered car). This makes me confident they will offer retrofit for Model Y though not sure how much extra, if it all, they'll charge. I am hopeful it will be the same $1,000 since the...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I just wish they disclosed this at the time of purchase. I paid close to 100k and everyone at Tesla showroom was singing praises of their battery technology. They definitely got me. Knowing what I know now, no chance in hell I would’ve bought the car. “Do you want to spend $97,000 for a car...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Haven’t supercharged it lately (a few months ago maybe) so can’t say. Wait, should I be worried about it too? It’s late 2017 model with 100kWh battery.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I took out my 2015 March built Model S 85D for supercharging after a long time, just to test chargegate. Guess what? I can’t use this car for road trips anymore. It took 1hr 20 minutes to charge from 15% to 90% and it barely stayed at ~60kW charge rate before dropping down to 50s and then...

    Store/Service/Delivery Center - Central Jersey - Lawrenceville NJ

    Saw lot of activity in the service bay yesterday. A couple of Tesla's inside but the entrances to the lot were blocked off by cones. From the looks of it, they seem to be still finishing things: maybe dry runs or equipment calibration or training. People are in there, stuff is happening but it's...

    Yeah, the wall connectors in the parking lot were just installed in the last couple of days. Saw three different crew vehicles in the parking lot. My guess is it will open after Thanksgiving.

    What would make you buy a non Tesla electric vehicle?

    I am not worried about paying for charging. It definitely is an incentive but the network has to meet a very high bar: 1. Widely available across the country especially highways and popular destinations. 2. There should be a cluster so that I don't have to wait in a queue, so not just 1 or 2...

    What would make you buy a non Tesla electric vehicle?

    Rivian. They seem to have most of what Tesla offers except a dedicated supercharging network. The day the charging situation becomes acceptable, I’ll buy their pickup.

    Annoying NEW beeping proximity chimes (after HW3 upgrade)

    Did anyone with MCU1 get HW3 upgrade? And if so, did they need to upgrade the MCU? A tech told me HW3 requires MCU2 a few months ago ... but I haven’t been able to confirm this. If someone did get HW3 without touching their MCU1, then obviously he was mistaken.

    Update from Tesla service on screen yellowing

    The tech who replaced my yellowing screen mentioned that they're currently testing a tool that they'll attach on the screen and it'll fix the yellow bands in minutes... forgot the exact mechanism he mentioned but if I am not mistaken it was some hot air blower thinggy. Mobile service vans will...

    HW3 upgrade waiting room: All FSD Tesla’s

    If your MCU was the older slower kind, did they upgrade it to v2 also or just the AP computer behind the dash? Someone mentioned to me that MCU1x will need to be upgraded with the new FSD computer together.

    Yellow borders on main screen- A new fix

    Very disappointing first week with Model X

    Late 2017 X 100D. It shuddered the one or two times I did a launch from a stop sign early on and never tried it again. Doesn't inspire any confidence like Model S does. Didn't realize it was a design flaw. Jaysus.

    Very disappointing first week with Model X

    We had both issues. Driver seat loud noise started a couple of months after ownership and it was only when the seats move forward. SC said it will be months before they get replacement parts. Reported: March/April. Expected Part: Mid August The noise is embarrassing and I've to live with it...

    Updated autopilot sucks!

    Every now and then, someone jumps in here riding their high horse asking us to put our hands on the wheel, drive safely and everything will be fine. SMH. I have an AP1 Model S and nagging is not an issue as it's very sensitive to any resistance. I have an AP2.5 Model X (late 2017) model and...

    Updated autopilot sucks!

    I’m in the hands on camp. Have been driving AP1 on Model S for 3 years now and had no issues with nagging. It’s the X or rather AP2.5 that somehow doesn’t detect my hands no matter what “natural” way I try: 10-2, 5, 8.. no matter what I do, it starts nagging and now more frequently. At the...

    Updated autopilot sucks!

    I just realized something: the whole AP experience while holding the wheel and constantly trying to apply small amounts of resistance/torque (and still getting nagged every now and then) is now stressful enough that it’s no better FOR ME than to just use TACC. If I’m putting so much work to get...

    Software Update 2018.21.9 75bdbc11

    The steering wheel should be extremely sensitive to "hand detection", even if it's ripe for abuse by drivers with oranges. Reason: After an accident, Tesla/Elon claim that hands were not detected on the steering wheel X seconds before a crash. Since that's a liability issue, Tesla should make...

    Right. I am just talking about unlocking the charge port to start charging, when the vehicle itself is locked: 2017 Model X does not unlock the charge port. 2015 Model S does.

    Opening charging port when vehicle is locked

    On my Model S, I can click the button on the mobile connector and it will pop open the charging door even when vehicle is locked. That doesn't work on my Model X: it has to be unlocked first. Is that by design, a defect in my car or is there a setting I'm missing?

    7 seater all-weather mats for Late 2017 models

    Does anybody regret buying Model X for your main car?

    We have an S (85D) with AP1 for over 3 years and just recently bought an X (100D). I won't say I regret the X but I don't enjoy driving or using it as much as I do an S. If you're coming from a gas car, it's a no-brainer. You'll love it. But I can't say an X is an overall better car than an S -...

    Sigh. Women are targeted for everything men are + rapists + taking advantage of size/strength. It's reasonable for women to feel more vulnerable than men. If you, as a man, were an attacker and there were two targets: one man and one woman, it's clear who you would choose.
