    1 month old model Y hit by other driver, is it totaled?

    Considering the battery damage + all the cosmetic, I think this is very likely to be totalled.

    Anyone hearing "SEGA" when the car boots up?

    I have a 2020 Model Y and I have Sonic.

    Anyone hearing "SEGA" when the car boots up?

    Hi all, For months now, when I reboot the car (two buttons + pedal pressed) or after a software update, I hear the "SEGA" sound playing (the same as the one when I start the sonic game). Does that happen to other folks as well or just me?

    Any other owners second guess if their next car should be another Tesla?

    I like my Model Y but may buy a Rivian or Lucid next. The build quality is meh, with lots of service appointments after delivery. When I look at the price of Tesla now, I think I could get a better price with another brand. Not saying I will never buy a Tesla again but I will definitely look...

    Family of 4 — used MX or new MY

    My $0.02 If budget is top of mind: Model Y with the 7 seater option. If budget not important: Model X For Model Y, the cost of maintenance is low. In some state, registration can be expensive (it's $1000 for me in CO, would be about $2k for Model Y). Insurance, etc. will also be more...

    AltiMAX RT43 Installed today.

    Question for folks that used the Altimax: did you feel the braking distance was different? Looking at the website and specifications, it seems that the breaking distance is quite longer for the Altimax compared to the Michelin. Do you think this is noticeable and did you notice a change? Thanks,

    Tire replacement for Model Y - feedback on Cooper or General?

    Interesting, they are marked as more quiet than the other tires available 🤔

    Tire replacement for Model Y - feedback on Cooper or General?

    I noticed that. However, due to my driving style (always on autopilot at low speed), I do not think it will affect me much. I am also based in Colorado so Winter Rating is important too. And the General seems to be quieter.

    Tire replacement for Model Y - feedback on Cooper or General?

    Hi all, Last week, I made Houston to Denver and on the way, one tire hit a nail. I got it plugged (see picture below) and was able to make it to Denver. I went to Tire Discount to check my tires and they told me the plug may damage the car and the tire may blow on the highway. They recommended...

    Deer collision: good body shop in Denver?

    For information for Model Y owners, the repair cost was around $9,800. Surprisingly low compared to what I saw online.

    Another Model Y Accident

    I just hit a deer two weeks ago. The difference is I was going at 45 mph in the mountains. See the post here Deer collision: good body shop in Denver? My estimate came at $4000 and the insurance told me it will be a low estimate and they will pay more once I am going into the shop. The real...

    Tesla body shop repairs

    Unfortunately, there is more. The door has an impact, the front bumper was also impacted and the hood has some damage as well. You can also see the piece that surrounds the wheel has been damaged. Insurance told me it is going to cost more, I just hope it will not be too much.

    Tesla body shop repairs

    Dang! So it might take 3 months to have the car back in shape (2 months for appointment + one month for repairs). I just hope the insurance will pay. So far, they quotes $4000 for the repairs and it seems low. Hope it will not get too high.

    Tesla body shop repairs

    Hi all, I recently hit a deer with my Model Y (last Thursday). I called the insurance and it's covered. I scheduled an appointment with the Tesla body shop in Denver but my appointment is scheduled for ... December 17 - so two months to wait! I was wondering if there are better recommendations...

    Deer collision: good body shop in Denver?

    Thank you for your feedback. Honestly, I am amazed at the safety of the car. We were in the mountain, hit the deer at 45mph. We heard no noise, the car stayed almost straight. Nobody got injured in any sort and the car was still running. Autopilot is still working too!

    Is there good feedback on Tesla body shops?

    Deer collision: good body shop in Denver?

    Hi all, Yesterday night, a deer came out of nowhere and hit the car. The impact was at 45 mph so not too hard. The front bumper, the door, side panels are all touched/impacted. I am looking for a body shop in Denver. Any recommendation? Thanks!

    Had an accident..

    It's not giving you a break but looking at facts. You came on that thread to show people how a horrible driver caused an accident on your beautiful tesla and you got different feedback? Maybe they say something useful after all. You say people are trolling you when they just show you the facts...

    Had an accident..

    *breaking :-)

    Had an accident..

    Agreed here. Yes, this was not ideal but plenty of time to slow down or stop. I had such cases multiple times and applied my foot on the breaks. Especially at 40 mph, it does not take long. Autopilot/FSD would probably have slowed down and not go to the right and speed (I drive most of the time...

    Sudden loss of range

    I just did that (recover capacity) and the battery capacity is still going down 😭😭😭😭

    Sudden loss of range

    Hi all, Since I got my Model Y, the charge slowed down by a few % every month, which is totally normal for normal usage. However, within two days, I went from 311 miles of range to 303 miles. I had absolutely no change in usage pattern, use the car the same way every day. I know that very...

    Serious paint flaws discovered after delivery

    Just for info, paint issues are not covered by the warranty and fixing them is at the discretion of the service center.

    2 week old 2021 Model Y - SHUT DOWN while driving

    Just discovered this post. Love to see the initial reactions of the fanboys telling that tesla has the best satisfaction and it can happen anytime and it will get fixed to eventually see a buy back. Yep, Teslas are great car when they work but the quality and customer service is just not what...

    Windshield trace/streak that do not go away

    Yeah, after my last failure, I am going to do this!

    Windshield trace/streak that do not go away

    Just try Barkeeper's Friend, without success. I start to lose hope!

    Windshield trace/streak that do not go away

    What kind of shop would do that? Safelite did not propose it. Should I try a detail shop?
  31. juli1

    Windshield trace/streak that do not go away

    Steel Wool is what Safelite recommended to use. Apparently, the 0000 grade is what they use to clean windshield when there are some streaks that do not go away. I will try Barkeeper. When I use my fingernail, I feel there is something uneven. That is why I think I could probably fix it but...

    Windshield trace/streak that do not go away

    Hi folks, Since few months, I have streaks on my windshield. It does not affect my vision soo much but it's annoying. I tried multiple products, from heavy glass cleaners to steelwool and nothing worked. I wondered if anybody in the community had this issue and if yes, how they handled it...

    What other competitor vehicles (gas/hybrid/ev) would you consider buying after owning a Y?

    I currently own a Model Y LR and will very likely not buy a tesla for my next car, cancel my cybertruck orders and buy another EV. Definitely consider the F-150 lightning and the lucid air (I do not like the look of the Rivian). I will keep the Model Y for a year or two and see how the...

    What to do when you cannot schedule service?

    I tried multiple times. I tried other addresses as well. Install and reinstall. Another frustration to put on the pile on my customer experience. The next car will def not be a tesla.

    What to do when you cannot schedule service?

    I am trying to schedule service through the Tesla mobile app. The app fails with an error. I tried to call the service center: no one answer. Anybody has any trick to get a hold of them? Because now, there is no way I can get any service on my vehicle. Thanks for any tips or recommendation!

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Definitely thinking of buying one. I have a Model Y and initially wanted to replace it with a CyberTruck later. After issues with the Model Y delivery, quality control, and all the false promises on self-driving, the F150 is *very* tempting. It's a truck that seems simple, has a huge frunk and...

    Would you still buy a Model Y now if you could do it again?

    It's totally random. I had great customer service in San Francisco and terrible customer service in Colorado that asked me to pay to investigate defects (haha). My neighbor in Colorado got a lot of things taken care of without issue while I have been asked to pay for it. So totally random, I...

    Would you still buy a Model Y now if you could do it again?

    Seriously thought about it. But with Tesla doing skechy things with the value of FSD at resale (another reason for not buying a TSLA), I will have to sell it to a private party and do not want to deal with that for now. Hopefully, considering that the company does not deliver FSD, we will be (at...

    Model Y full charge range

    Would you still buy a Model Y now if you could do it again?

    Have my MY for 9 months. I won't buy it again and I am very likely not to take delivery of any of the cybertruck orders I put because of the shitty quality build and terrible customer service. And also for not delivering on the FSD promise when I put $7k down for it. Will probably sell it to...

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    You need to remove the bottom seats. Remove them and then you have access from the bottom.

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    I used https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WNLNSW1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I put one to two per "black section" highlighted in the pictures. I did not hear that sound again so far.

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    I think I fixed the problem. The sound seems to come from these things. I ordered small paint sponge and inserted them inside like this. So far, it seems the noise disappears. I need to drive more to confirm but that seems to get better. I am still super disappointed by Tesla approach...

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    Update: I was finally able to take the seat off and check the rear seat buckle and that is not the cause. But when I fold the rear seats down the sounds disappear. So this is definitely something related to the rear seats. And will investigate more. 🤔🤔🤔

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    Thanks for the information and the picture. It seems it might be the source and I will attempt your trick. In fact, I also believe this came from the top but I might be totally wrong. Question: how do you pull the seats? I tried but it does not seem to come up. Did you force it? Thanks!

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    I believe that when I purchase a car at $60k, I will be covered for any manufacturing defects. So far, Tesla never charged me to fix precious squeak, paint mismatch (the door did not match the rest of the car). I do not think this is fair to charge a customer for a car that should not have...

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    I contacted my service center and they want to charge me $124 for that, even if I already brought the vehicle twice for this very problem. Apparently, rattles/noise are not covered by the warranty and just fixed for 6 months as a courtesy. I was totally unaware of this and very surprised that...

    Model Y rattle - anybody has similar problem?

    Thanks a lot. I do have an appointment with the service center and will bring this information to them. I will also try to isolate the issue this weekend.

    What? Which one? The right or the left?
