    Canadian Model S and X Owner Thoughts...

    Apparently, it's already in place. I'm unsure whether it's in effect everywhere. I didn't get rerouted even though the south Barrie chargers were full. It's unclear what the circumstances are for this to work. I'm on 2022.20.7 Tesla navigation can reroute you to less busy Superchargers

    Canadian Model S and X Owner Thoughts...

    Made the round trip in just under 5 hours of driving today. Overall, Saturdays are better than Sunday drives (especially the returns). Best to start out in the mornings both ways if possible. Afternoons get far heavier in both directions. Part of the slow go around Barrie is due to ongoing...

    Canadian Model S and X Owner Thoughts...

    I'm heading up and back on Saturday (picking up my daughter from camp), so we won't need to come to blows. 😂 If you're planning for charging around Barrie, watch the display and see whether you get a clock/timer on the charger pin on the map. I used the southern one (8 stalls) on the way up...

    Canadian Model S and X Owner Thoughts...

    @Struja All I can say is you're perspective isn't dissimilar to mine in so many ways. I originally had a 2016 for 9 months before a crash wrote it off. During that time, I had a feeling that the pack was insufficient and suffers from premature degradation, there were telltale signs of suspension...

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    It's on Tesla's charging map, it's near the Oakville Service Centre, so yeah odds are it'll happen. The gamble is exactly where and when it'll open even though it says Q4 2022 - it's dependent upon planning approval, site negotiations, contractors and Tesla's whims. Long and short - look for...

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    One thing Tesla will have to add is queuing - for those who have to wait, it'll control and prevent people from cutting to the front of the line opportunistically.

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    I'm hopeful of this, although I also think that if they want to have an immediate impact, the solution will be to open up and convert the existing chargers. Simply getting through permits, planning and the other steps seems to take an inordinate amount of time. Agree with the rest, although it...

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    So, @everydaychris and @Unclepaul one of the key points you say is, essentially, Tesla's Supercharger network. If Tesla does indeed open it up to others, does that change your opinion? I ask this, because the current charging infrastructure of everyone other than Tesla is what might hold me...

    Since you say it's a lifestyle choice, what makes the Tesla better under your circumstances? What do you consider the sway factor in all of this?

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    They also need to fill in a few more stops toward the north/cottage country/Muskoka. The existing chargers are getting full quickly now. They also need to upgrade to the 250kWh chargers as the A/B pairings on the 150kWh chargers really slow things down.

    IVY Ontario Enroute Tesla Chademo Innisfill?

    Having traveled the past few weekends between Toronto and Muskoka, those 28 chargers are getting WELL used. Full at lower Barrie (8 150kWh chargers) on the way up, full at Vaughan Mills (20 150kWh chargers) on the way back. The only issue with the Upper Barrie chargers is that it's a bit of a...

    Toronto to Claryville, NY next month.

    My only issue with any routing is dependent upon what happens at the border. While not a bad plan to charge before going across the border, if you get stuck in an hour or more worth of border traffic, you might have to do a little creative replanning. Thankfully there are options on both sides -...

    Nope, where I'm at it's considered a "safety" issue for selling/registration, however, some Service Centers may elect to turn a blind eye to it. ;)

    Be glad you didn't have burnt out Daytime Running Lamps - those go for about $3000 per unit in Canada.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    My question is how much would it cost? If the existing headlights are ~$2500 per unit, how much would the Matrix be? I would consider it if the originals started having trouble, but certainly not just to change it up - at least, I'm not convinced there's enough of a difference to shell out +$5K...

    Actually, there is an energy graph - use voice commands to get it. Try saying "Display Energy graph". I find that using voice commands can be a bit finicky - I talk up to the left where I think the microphone is otherwise it doesn't even recognize a command. [Edit: just realized that I'm still...

    Glad that you FINALLY got this. Enjoy it - it's certainly a step up from what I've previously driven from Tesla. After a month of driving it, I wish for a few things: a return of the stalks for turn signals and gear selection, that they move the seat belt locks more outboard for the middle row...

    2022 BMW X5M Comp or MX Plaid

    From my own experience, I wouldn't write home about BMW's build quality. Only owned 2 - a 2001 330Xi and a 2008 535Xi Touring. Numerous problems with both, with the 5 series being the worst car I've ever owned and regularly in the shop for repairs. If you intend to get one, lease it and write...

    I would try it on the LR just to see. For some reason, I found the ride of the YP to have a more supple ride than the YLR. I'm wondering if there's a different calibration in the suspension. That said, it's probably better just to do an aftermarket suspension and keep the 19s and retain the...

    Canada - FSD rollout

    Well, I can tell you it's nigh near impossible for me to keep a decent safety score in Toronto. If you're somewhere where people drive nicely and can do it, then you're more likely to get in if you've got a longer record, I would think.

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    Personally, I find the 3rd row okay on the X. If you're doing long distance with more than 5 people and comfort is paramount, then it's either a minivan or a van - SUVs just don't do it so well. If I just didn't hate Ford so much, the tall Transit would be a nice one - while sucking back gas...

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    A few things I'll put in there. There's also under seat storage in the Rivian. It "kinda" makes up for the missing glovebox, although I would have preferred to see one still available. I like that with Tesla you can add a PIN to lock it as well. Hitch capacity - if you want to carry bikes/gear...

    Newbie Questions

    In the past couple of weeks, I've noticed that the Sherway Gardens storefront doesn't have ANY cars on the showroom floor. It's probably because of the temporary maintenance shutdown at the factories right after the quarter end. You can try again in a couple of weeks to see if you can schedule a...

    Canadian Stores and Service Centers

    So, when I asked my Sales Advisor (not the Service Advisor who is supposed to do the delivery), they did have a VIN which they emailed to me shortly thereafter. It helped to get the ball rolling for things such as insurance. It literally took weeks after that until the VIN showed up on my...

    Canadian Stores and Service Centers

    Mixed bag - overall, the experience wasn't bad. Those picking up an S or X will get some preferential treatment (especially compared to 3/Ys), with dedicated personnel to help setup and ask questions of. No push to get you out the door either, but for me it was roughly 30 minutes start to...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    This is a policy that needs to be eliminated. Regardless of whatever Tesla has ongoing with production problems, supply chain issues, or whatever, it's alienating their customers for no particular reason. As competition comes, Tesla may very well have a problem keeping customers - along with the...

    It's okay until you go to honk in an emergency and the only noise you get when you hit the middle is a slight squeek - followed by a long, loud line of expletives.

    Canada - FSD rollout

    So, to answer that back. He was a key figure in the ongoing strategy for AP/FSD. Sure, you can replace him, but the question is whether the next guy will set a different direction and what that may imply to those who bought AP/FSD without radar. This isn't that dissimilar to the whole...

    Canada - FSD rollout

    With Karpathy gone, how much progression will FSD make in the short term and in the long term? What does V11 represent? When will it reach Level 4 autonomy? Seems to me that it's now all a crapshoot.

    Not surprising. I had to email my Sales Advisor to get my VIN. There's been a number of times that VIN assignment has changed for others - didn't experience that myself. I never had contact from a service advisor prior to delivery, which was supposed to happen a day or 2 before delivery. Showed...

    Canada Rogers Network impacts - no remote access?

    To clarify: shortest time to get through paperwork and take the vehicle on day of delivery. Otherwise LONGEST time (by far) from order to delivery. I'm going to be twitching now with that memory.
