    Privately Selling a Vehicle Advice

    Hello Everyone, I hope you are doing well, I am in the process of selling my Model Y since I am ordering the X. This will be my first time selling my car this expensive privately. From the past, I have always told the buyer to have financing ready in a form of payment such as a cashier's check...

    Is Phantom Braking Still a Problem?

    I live in Indiana and my Autopilot use cases are NOA, FSD Beta, and public build Autopilot. All three features get used the majority of the time on 45 mph or higher roads. Let's talk NOA. NOA seems to be the most reliable and least phantom braking I experience on the interstates of Indiana and...

    Model Y full charge range

    Thank you very for the great information! Now I am a little less worried knowing this seems to be the trend. Hopefully the lower watt hours in the summer time can help me make my longer commutes! Also nice to see a McAllen Tesla owner! Was their this Thanksgiving, had a blast going to Starbase...

    Mind of it Owns Windows

    I hope not!!! I want to get a recording first. than set the service ticket, and update the forum about the solution.

    Mind of it Owns Windows

    I wonder what is going on, I am trying to get a recording video proof but it happens so randomly that I haven't been able to get the recording. I wonder if I record the time and date, so the service team can see a log showing my windows rolled down. In your case I wonder what else it could be!

    Model Y full charge range

    I am thinking about going ahead and buying a Lectron level 2 charger and having an electrician run a 240 volt receptacle outside. I would buy a level 1 since I have those receptacle easily available but I would not get enough of a charge by the time I leave.

    Model Y full charge range

    I would take my charger to the properties but they do not have 240 volt and high amp receptacles available outside of them. I have used Chargepoint and EA in these same routes but I have had nothing but constant unreliable charging experiences. Why cant these companies just steal SC designs and...

    Model Y full charge range

    Ugh, it is disappointing because I was hoping to use this car to commute on my 200 mile round trip properties all year round but some of these areas do not have a supercharger so I have to take my dinosaur juice sippers... I am going to wait until summer and see if the lower watt hours will help...

    Mind of it Owns Windows

    Hello, I have noticed a weird glitch in the past month of December 2021. Sometimes when I close my MY's front driver's side door, the other 3 door windows will retract about 4 inches on their own. Then I have to roll them back up. I am not sure what would be causing this issue at all. Anyone...

    Model Y full charge range

    I would love to have this instead of battery percentages and rated miles. I wonder if Tesla's API lets us access this info. Also gives me a peace of mind if my car is really losing range or not😅

    Model Y full charge range

    I live in Indiana, and the current weather is between 25 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit. My 2021 MY is 10 months old with 19,000 miles and I am concerned about having only 290 miles rated range on the Tesla App at 100%. I noticed this range drop in October 2021. The Tesla service team said my car...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    One thing that makes me annoyed is the great availability of third-party chargers such as ChargePoint, EVgo, Electrify America, etc and their impeccably trash reliability. I have had about 7 cases where I needed to use an Electrify America station or a ChargePoint station and they didn't work. A...

    Auto Windshield Wipers

    I have moved on to manual adjustments at this point. Deep Rain NN is certainly in Beta😂

    Auto Windshield Wipers

    I was not aware of this, I don't think I have owned a single car where the headlight do turn on when using the windshield wipers. Tesla sometimes tries to "innovate" a new perspective but they should stick with what works!

    Requesting a Supercharger Location Directly to Tesla

    Sadly no, I also don't have any updates from Tesla or a email I can contact. I am still open to having a SC on my property for all to use! That being said, I am going to submit a second request this week and see what happens!

    Why CarPlay?

    Does Tesla currently use traffic data from Google or Waze? Or is their live traffic data based on Tesla vehicles on the road?

    Model Y Vibration while acceleration / regeneration

    You can call me out, I am just sharing my experience. Even with 11k miles on these tires, their is no excuse for vibration problems. I have owned many high end vehicles and put well over 100k miles on them and not vibration issues. The SC is aware of the issue before hand but if you read my...

    Car Vibration Service Fee

    Thank you for the reply, I think I am going to go ahead and take your advise, I will let discount tire troubleshoot first. Tesla SC did rebalance all my tires last week but did not tell me if they were unbalanced from the beginning.

    Model Y Vibration while acceleration / regeneration

    Hello BR7!, I have been facing a mystery vibration issue for months now. The local SC has also performed a wheel balance but did not resolve the problem. Even on smooth/rough roads the car vibrates. I notice my vibration around 55+ mph on any type of roads. Couple days ago I drove 90+ mph (Just...

    Car Vibration Troubleshooting

    My March 2021 MY has been having vibration/major road noise issues. Around 55+ mph, the car vibrates and the wheel shakes noticeably. August 24th, the SC did re-create the problem and their solution was re-balancing all 4 tires. However, this caused the car to vibrate again. If I drive the car...

    Car Vibration Service Fee

    I spoke too soon 😅. Going to work today, the vibrations came back even worse over 55 mph. I gunned it around 110 mph today and the whole car felt like it was about to fall apart. Ughhhh.

    Why CarPlay?

    I think the arguments from the couple sides are interesting but why not allow users the option for android auto or CarPlay. Gives the user more options and a better experience overall.

    Car Vibration Service Fee

    Update, on August 25th, Tesla did re-balance all four tires and eliminate the vibration coming from the wheels. They didn't mention anything about milage or deny the service under warranty. They covered it under warranty.

    Autopark People!

    From what I have read, it is only for the new refreshed Model S only. 3 and Y do not get this as of yet...

    Autopark People!

    100% agree with you on this, Autopark is nice when it actually can be enabled, I hope the FSD full-stack will make auto-park engagement faster in the future.

    Poor quality control on the Model Y

    The only suggestion I have for you if be assertive with the Tesla service center. They will use certain common excuses like "it is in spec" blah blah. If you can, take it in person to the SC, for example, the Indianapolis mobile service will only do so much but I have had a better experience in...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    I plan on keeping my Model Y for at least 10 years or 200,000 miles (I most likely won't hit 200,000 miles in 10 years). I am confident we would see a 500 to 550-mile range car by then, if not more! By then, we should have even a better battery design than the current cylindrical lithium-ion...

    Requesting a Supercharger Location Directly to Tesla

    Car Vibration Service Fee

    I am going to give my SC the messages from early on about the complaint, I am hoping they will work with me. If worse come to worse, a have a local tire shop that will work with me. I am very positive the fix is rebalancing the tire, as I have had one mechanic friend say it is most likely a tire...

    Car Vibration Service Fee

    Fingers crossed not! The Indianapolis SC has been a constant let down. The car drives great from 0-50 mph, after that I notice a shake on free way speeds.

    Car Vibration Service Fee

    This has been a day one problem I got the car, Tesla kept pushing a diagnostic fee, being how poor Tesla service is. They never mentioned to me that the fees would be waived if they found a problem. If this little detail was mentioned beforehand, I would have not waited 10k miles...

    Car Vibration Service Fee

    Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well, I have been noticing a vibration from the wheel when I drive around 55+ MPH on the highway. I believe it to be an unbalanced tire but I set up a service appointment and Tesla wants $175/hr for diagnostics on a warrantied car. I have fought and...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    Hello, NHK X, I hope you are doing well, After performing my latest trip to Kentucky from Indiana (295 miles). One thing I hope the US housing market considers is a higher amp outlet for future and existing developments in garages or at least outdoor. The area I went to did have a SC down the...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    I would like a gazillion miles of range 🙋🏽‍♂️! After looking more into my daily commutes since ownership in March. A realistic 270-300 miles of range would be enough for my daily use case. Of course, I am probably the 1% of users for the amount of daily driving I do. I have noticed Indiana...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    I honestly would not pay much more for a model Y 400 or 500 miles of range compared to the current 326 miles. I did pay around $50,000 for the Long-Range version in March. You have a great point about the cost a 400 and 500-mile range Tesla will have. I would maybe pay another $2,500 for a 400...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    I definitely will start to take my MY, the only road trip I have taken with the MY, I had a bad experience with charging at the location. Unfortunately, I did not have any quality gauged extension cords, and had to drive 20 minutes to the SC basically every other day... I really hope future...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    Not everyday, my businesses are are far apart, about 100 miles apart. Sometimes I have to make trips back and forth in one day, then back to my house, another 50 miles. Even with charging at my businesses, so many factors affect my ability to do my driving all in one go. That would be a...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well, After the cancellation of the 500+ range Model S Plaid+, I have been seeing a big debate of Teslas or EVs in general regarding 500 miles worth of range on Twitter. The main argument I am seeing is that most people will want to stop as 500 miles of...

    Mobile Connector Problems.

    This is where I do not like Tesla wordings at all. Tesla states this in a manual, however, when I spoke with the service tech in-person, I ask him if I can use the UMC outside, in the rain, direct sunlight, etc. He not only said yes with confidence but also said, they are able to handle the...

    Mobile Connector Problems.

    Just to update this thread, I was able to get a replacement UMC from Tesla Indianapolis, this solved my charging problems. I wanted to ask how common is a UMC failure, I really hope this replacement one will last the life of my car...

    Autopilot Freak Out

    I am thinking it is the software but I could be wrong. This is the only version I have had AP do this. I also recalibrated the camera but the problem still occurs. I am going to try to upload sentry cam footage next time this happens.

    Curbed Rim Questions

    Thank you everyone, my soul is crushed but I think I am going to take everyones advice in DIY it. I definitely agree this will happen again, the rims sticking out looks great but I think I might need to invest in rim protectors. Yes, I really need a bird's eye or a curb-avoidance software in my...

    Curbed Rim Questions

    Hello, everyone, I hope you are doing well, Yesterday, I went downtown Indianapolis and curbed both passenger side front and rear wheels. The front passenger side has the most damage, it is curbed and the paint is gone. The rear passenger wheel has only a little bit of paint removed. I have...

    I can’t believe that I rely on 360 camera views this much!

    It is surprising to me how much effort it takes to engage auto park. When in use, it does a fantastic job but getting it engage is the weak part about this feature.

    Autopilot Freak Out

    Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing well, Has anyone on 2021.4.18 been noticing on roads 35 MPH to 45 MPH, AP freaks out thinking semi truck and pick-up trucks with trailers are going to hit the car on the side? This has been completely new experience ever since the 2021.4.18 update. I did...
